100 Selected Poems, W. B. Yeats

Buy from Amazon

Yeats is one of the most popular poets and this book is a collectable edition of some of his best poems. The poems itself are marvellous. Yeats has a way of words to convey the deepest of meanings in the easiest words. The hardback book that I got from Amazon is really pretty to look at and looks great on the shelf as well. It is 308 pages long. The poems in this book cover a range of topics but most of the poems were romantic and who knows romance better than the renowned poet Yeats. Each poem leaves a deep imprint on the reader’s mind and conveys Yeats’ philosophy of life. Some of my favourite poems in the book were  ‘The Second Coming’, ‘The Stolen Child’ and ‘When You Are Old’. Since the book showcases one of Yeats best works, it becomes quite evident why he was the first Irishmen to get Nobel Prize in Literature.

I would recommend this book to all those who have an interest in poetry. W.B Yeats is one poet whom everyone should read at least once in their life. His poetry instills deep empathy and compassion in a reader.

Kim by Rudyard Kipling

Buy from Amazon

My Review:

Rudyard Kipling is a famous author known mainly for his book The Jungle Book. Little did I know, he has plenty of other fantastic books as well. Kim is a book completely unfamiliar to me. I had never heard its name before choosing to pick it up, seeing the name of Rudyard Kipling on the cover but in the end, I am so happy that I did. Kim is like Indian Harry Potter to me. The book tells the journey of a young boy during British Rule in India. He not only begs on the streets of Lahore but also works as an errand boy for a horse trader and spymaster. But there is more to his destiny than that. Soon he takes off on a quest to find a legendary river. The characterization of the book and writing style were so familiar to me, having read the jungle book but I was still amazed by Rudyard Kipling’s ability to create fantastic images in the reader’s mind. The prose is so beautiful and so is the storytelling. I don’t know if this book has been adapted into a movie yet but it definitely should. It is just that good.

Pratham Hindi Varnmala

Buy from Amazon

Hindi has a lot of importance in India and every child should learn it. That is why I was pleasantly surprised when I saw that the padded book series had a book solely dedicated to Hindi alphabets as well. I have even forgotten the Hindi alphabets and so it is important that one has a book if one wishes to teach it to a kid. This book had the Hindi alphabets or varnmala along with complementing pictures and words starting from those alphabets. Teaching Hindi to kids is comparatively easy and all the more essential since it is the language of conversation is most households. This book makes introducing Hindi words to kids easier. Children are easily able to know the word after looking at the picture and so they learn how to spell it or what alphabets constitute it as well. This book is also 26 pages long and meant for kindergarten kids aged one to five years. It is not too expensive given the quality of the cover, pages and font used in printing the content. The picture quality is also very good and attractive colors have been used to keep children engaged.

Writers and Cold Hands: here’s a solution

WhatsApp Image 2019-05-20 at 12.02.18 AM

Being a writer and reader, winters are the worst months because my hands would freeze making it almost impossible to hold a pen, type on a laptop or keep on turning pages of a book. If I did, however, wear gloves, then that would make writing even more difficult. Recently, I got these super-cute pair of writing gloves made from pure cashmere. Even though it is summers here right now, I tried them on and they are so warm, my palms started sweating in a minute. Continue reading

My First Padded Book of Alphabet

Buy from Amazon

My first padded book of Alphabets is a good book for kindergarten kids. It is suitable for kids aged 1-5 years and contains pictures of all alphabets within the 26 pages of the book. The book is bright yellow in colour which makes it quite attractive for children. The price of the book is also quite cost-effective. It is a medium-sized short book and has bright colourful pictures to make it attractive for children. The book is meant to prepare children for school and inculcate early reading habits. It does help a lot in teaching the basic alphabets to young children. I bought this book for my sister’s son and he liked it very much. Like all other books in this padded book series, this book is also a hardback but without the rough hard edges. The paddedness of the book makes it fun to carry around. The pages are also of high quality but they can easily be torn and that is something to take care of since tearing pages is always the best time-pass of kids. Other than that, I would totally recommend this book to parents who wish to start teaching their kids at an early age.
