Paper Boats in Puddles by Priya Velayudhan #BookReview

Paper boats. The little vehicles we use to drown in our childhood fantasies. The inexpensive mode of travel which can take us to many places, yet bring us back home in time for dinner.  I equate "Paper Boats In Puddles" by Priya Velayudhan to a paper boat. One short story will take you down a memory lane, or should I say 'river', of your past. Another will take you into your supposed sea of the future. Maybe another will take you from narrow stream to big ocean and widen your perspective about things you didn't seem to care for before. Or maybe, a story will caress your heart and make you want more, just like the waves hit the sea shore. "Paper Boats in Puddles" by Priya Velayudhan is a debut collection of 33 short stories. And I must say, I am quite impressed with the depth and thought that each of these stories have.

The Palace of Illusions – Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni #BookReview

broken blue bubbles

To be honest, this book was on my TBR for a long time. I used to steal a glance at this awesome green and yellow glittery cover in the library. But I always ended up picking another Jeffrey Archer / Dan Brown/ John Grisham book instead. Almost all my GoodReads friends had already put this book on their ‘read’ shelf. I don’t know why I didn’t join the bandwagon then. Was it due to the fact that I was 97% unaware about the epic Mahabharat? I knew only snippets of this 100000 shloka (couplet) long poem, all thanks to comic books, stories shared by teachers during lectures, and friends who have knowledgeable opinions about the Mahabharat

But there’s something you must know. I had learned Egyptian and Greek mythology from scratch when I was in eighth grade. By that reasoning, learning Indian Mythology in the fourteenth grade would not…
