What's New: Week Two

This idea occurred to me while I was thinking about doing some non-review stuffs on my blog.
What's New will be a weekly blog post where  I'll be blogging about 3 books (each week) that are recently released.
I'll be posting this on every Monday.
This week I'm posting about newly released books by Indian authors.

A brand new love story and a story of friendship from the bestselling author of Few Things Left Unsaid and That’s the Way We Met! It will take every emotions to one step higher.

Why don’t we feel the moment when we fall in love but always remember when it ends? Akash is young, single, and conservative with a preference for girls with brains than in miniskirts. One day, he runs into free-spirited Aleesha at a local discotheque. A Mass Media student, Aleesha is a pampered brat, the only child of her parents who dote on her. This brief meeting leads them to exchange their BlackBerry pins and they begin chatting regularly. As BlackBerry plays cupid, they fall in love. When they hit a rough patch in their life, Aditya, Akash’s close pal, guides them through it.

But just when they are about to take their relationship to the next level, a sudden misfortune strikes. Can Aditya bring Akash’s derailed life back on track?

Can a good mum get a good night’s sleep?

Kusumanjali Ravindranath – Anju to her family – has just had her first child. She revels in motherhood, and does not miss her job, her old body, or even the freedom to check emails whenever she wants to.But she does miss her sleep.

Fast turning into an insomniac, Anju accepts the inevitability of her sleep-deprived existence. Until she meets the local miracle mum and her child – a child who has been sleeping from 7 pm to 7 am since he was three months old.

Good Night & Good Luck is Anju’s journey to peaceful slumber – for herself and her baby. It’s an obstacle course, strewn with ‘booby’ traps, warring baby gurus, indulgent and obsessive grandmothers, jet lag, and colliding cultures. All part of the new mother’s vertiginous learning curve.

A witty, heartwarming book about the magical first year of a baby, and about navigating the myths and truths of modern parenting , Anju’s experience could be your guide to (dare we say it?) a good night’s sleep.

Has anyone ever asked you - What were the best days of your life? 

That one period of your life you always wanted to go back to? And live that life . . . one more time? 

When asked this, I closed my eyes and went back in my own past. And I thought . . . 

. . . of the days, when lifes most complex choices had a simple solution of Akkad Bakkad Bambey Bo! 
. . . of the seasons when rains were celebrated by making paper boats. 
. . . of the times when waiting at the railway crossing meant counting the bogies of the train passing by.

When I opened my eyes, it seems Like it Happened Yesterday! Like it was yesterday that I broke my first tooth and fell in love for the first time. Like it was yesterday, when I was about to lose my friend, and suddenly he became my best friend. 

I look back and it becomes a journey full of adventure. It makes me laugh, it makes me cry and I know Im here because I was . . . 

Come, hold my hand, and take this trip with me. It will be yesterday for you, once again!
