1001 Best things ever said about Work

“It is a good thing for an educated man,” declared Winston Churchill, “to read books of quotations.” Anatole France advised, “When a thing has been said and said well, have no scruple. Take it and copy it.” Not to be outdone, George Bernard Shaw once remarked, “I often quote myself. It adds spice to my conversations.” Read More

You Are Born to Blossom is a book about scientist and philosopher Dr. A P J Abdul Kalams vision of a new India that enumerates the most vital facets of education and their contributions in building a better workforce for societal prosperity and development.Co-authored with engineer, scientist and erstwhile pupil Professor Arun K. Tiwari, the book delves into the vivid life events of Dr. Kalam, which have taken him through varied corners of the country. The former President of India, who is known for his valuable insights on social progress, has met thousands of school students on various occasions over the last five years, and recognised a prime necessity for the perfect fusion of quality education and proper guidance. Penned down with much hopes of creating awareness about the strengths of knowledge, the book promises to refurbish the missing link in the modus operandi of the Idealists and the Globals in achieving their goals. The speedy and substantial progress of the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and the wide possibilities at its disposal have been highlighted as the key factor for this specific purpose. The book encompasses the different stages of human life to emphasise on the common goal of unearthing the tremendous resources and support systems implicit in the field of education. It mentions about the school days of Dr. Kalam and his friend Kota Harinarayana (former chief of Indias Light Combat Aircraft Development Programme) when vision and inspiration were the only tools to keep the fire of aspiration burning in a not-so advanced educational system. The book serves its purpose well in inspiring young minds to open their doors of creative perception and pour out their latent skills when they are most needed for national growth. While education is the most powerful instrument in building a stable and mature society, every reader will realise how best to utilise the available resources in fulfilling hisher responsibility. The book has aptly been structured under eight chapters, each one depicting the sequential paths to human fulfilment, with the finale resting on education as a spiritual journey.

Almost all show-world success stories in India appear the same. What sets individuals apart is the approach and the attitude once they reach the top. No one can resist a rags-to-riches story. It is every common man’s dream. But Rajinikanth’s story is irresistible. He continues to be an enigma to both his fans and contemporaries. He is simple Shivaji Rao Gaekwad who, by way of luck and hard work became a superstar, and continues to remain on top notwithstanding the vagaries of time. His starrer Muthu gave him an enviable identity globally, and sky seemed the limit after its unprecedented success in Japan. His latest, Shivaji has further spread his charisma globally. One can love Rajinikanth as millions do, one can hate him, as his detractors do, but the fact also remains no one can ignore him. None can shrug away his presence unless he or she is extremely insensitive to the film world. The book painstakingly seeks to record every nuance of Rajinikanth’s life: the joys and sorrows, the pains and ecstasies, loves and betrayals. It also does not shy away from underlining the two extremes that have remained an intrinsic part of his highly eventful career: the human and the divine. The book tells the essential truth about Rajinikanth that has thus far remained unknown to his vast fan following.

Superstar India – From Incredible to Unstoppable By Shobhaa De

A tall, yellow-haired young European traveller calling himself ‘Mogor dell’Amore’, the Mughal of Love, arrives at the court of the real Grand Mughal, the Emperor Akbar, with a tale to tell that begins to obsess the whole imperial capital. The stranger claims to be the child of a lost Mughal princess, the youngest sister of Akbar’s grandfather Babar: Qara Koz, ‘Lady Black Eyes’, a great beauty believed to possess powers of enchantment and sorcery, who is taken captive first by an Uzbeg warlord, then by the Shah of Persia, and finally becomes the lover of a certain Argalia, a Florentine soldier of fortune, commander of the armies of the Ottoman Sultan. When Argalia returns home with his Mughal mistress the city is mesmerized by her presence, and much trouble ensues.”The Enchantress of Florence” is the story of a woman attempting to command her own destiny in a man’s world. It brings together two cities that barely know each other – the hedonistic Mughal capital, in which the brilliant emperor wrestles daily with questions of belief, desire and the treachery of sons, and the equally sensual Florentine world of powerful courtesans, humanist philosophy and inhuman torture, where Argalia’s boyhood friend “il Machia” – Niccolo Machiavelli – is learning, the hard way, about the true brutality of power. These two worlds, so far apart, turn out to be uncannily alike, and the enchantments of women hold sway over them both. But is Mogor’s story true? And if so, then what happened to the lost princess? And if he’s a liar, must he
die?

The Alzheimer’s Action Plan:The Experts’ Guide to the Best Diagnosis and Treatment for Memory Problems

“Five million Americans have Alzheimer disease, and an even larger number with mild to moderate memory loss are at high risk of developing this illness. Murali Doraiswamy, a leading clinical researcher in Alzheimer disease, and Lisa Gwyther, a founder of the Alzheimer Association, have co-authored this timely, state-of-the-art book directed at patients with Alzheimer disease, their informants, and their primary care physicians….I fully predict that this exceptionally well-written, reader-friendly book will become the standard resource for patients with Alzheimer disease and their loved ones.–JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association)

“Memory does matter. Adults across the life cycle are asking questions, many questions! The authors answer these questions for the educated public, family members who encounter memory loss in a loved one, and even adults who believe they are experiencing early memory loss. The answers are comprehensive and understandable, no small accomplishment given the plethora of new information available—information that at times is not only confusing but also conflicting.”
–Dan G. Blazer, M.D., Ph.D., former Dean of Medical Education, Duke
