In Focus - Ten Must Reads for this February 2016

Rusty, a sixteen-year-old Anglo-Indian boy, is orphaned and has to live with his English guardian in the claustrophobic European part in Dehra Dun. Unhappy with the strict ways of his guardian, Rusty runs away from home to live with his Indian friends. Plunging for the first time into the dream-bright world of the bazaar, Hindu festivals and other aspects of Indian life, Rusty is enchanted and is lost forever to the prim proprieties of the European community. This special edition marks the 60th anniversary of this award-winning book, written when the author was just seventeen. Poignant, heart-warming and an absolute classic, this book is forever a joy to read.

The pioneer who gate-crashed his way to the top

Subhash Chandra, the promoter of Essel/ Zee Group, is an unlikely mogul. Hailing from a small town in Haryana, where his family ran grain mills, Chandra has been a perennial outsider, repeatedly aiming high and breaking into businesses where he was considered an interloper.

Starting work as a teen to pay off family debts, Chandra had to rely on bluff, gumption and sheer hard toil to turn things around. A little bit of luck and political patronage saw him make a fortune in rice exports to the erstwhile USSR.

A wildly original and humorous account of growing up as an Indian woman. Unladylike is a memoir that spans four decades of the author's life. From stories about a childhood spent wishing she could change everything about her life (Including her parents), to her chronically delayed puberty, and the self-esteem issues that accompany a flat chest, Vaz doesn't pull any punches. She takes us through her college years, where under the vigilance of Catholic nuns she grappled with a major decision - to have or not have pre-marital sex as well as the discovery that the female body is capable of some very strange sounds at very inappropriate times.

In Other Words is at heart a love story - of a writer's passion for another language. For Jhumpa Lahiri, that love was for Italian, which first captivated her during a trip to Florence after college. Although Lahiri studied Italian for many years afterward, true mastery eluded her. So in 2012, she decided to move to Rome where she began to read, and to write - initially in her journal - solely in Italian. In Other Words, an autobiographical work written in Italian, investigates the process of learning to express oneself in another language and describes the journey of a writer seeking a new voice.

In May 1937 a man in his early thirties waits by the lift of a Leningrad apartment block. He waits all through the night, expecting to be taken away to the Big House. Any celebrity he has known in the previous decade is no use to him now. And few who are taken to the Big House ever return. So begins Julian Barnes's first novel since his Booker-winning The Sense of an Ending. A story about the collision of Art and Power, about human compromise, human cowardice and human courage, it is the work of a true master.

Bad News is the incredible account of the battle for free speech in modern-day Rwanda. Following not only those journalists who stayed, despite fearing torture or even death from a ruthless government, but also those reporting from exile, it is the story of papers being shut down, of lies told to please foreign delegates, of the unshakeable loyalty that can be bred by terror, of history being retold, of constant surveillance, of corrupted elections and of great courage. It tells the true narrative of Rwandan society today and, in the face of powerful forces, of the fight to make explosions heard.

“Grief is a Thing with Feathers” is a book which can be read by everyone and that is what I think every book aims to be – to be read by everyone in the long run, for people to connect with it, for people to not leave it, for people to also wonder why did it end so soon (which happens to be more often than not when I read books such as this one – which is so moving) and of course for people to reread it. The book is about the death of a mother and how the husband and two boys come to terms with her death. It is not as easy as it sounds. Life never is and that is the beauty of this book. They need something to help them cope – an external resource and that comes in the form of a giant Crow (fable-like, mythical quality, whatever you may call it, but it helps them live day to day), who transforms their lives inside out and will only leave once the healing is complete. Max Porter’s writing shines on almost every single page. The writing style and composition of the book is varied – part prose, part rhyme and part poetry, it is a meditation on living and dying and the void called grief, thrown right in-between these two. My only grouse with the book was the crow’s voice at times, because I just could not understand that and that voice happened to be most crucial in the book. Well, having said that the story on its own is so strong that you cannot help but turn the pages, one after the other.

What if you can leave your life and its problems behind and go places - to other countries, worlds, galaxies and back and forth in time? Books are that one medium that will grant you full access to anywhere and everywhere, allowing you to escape into your imagination with rich descriptions of everything you might not otherwise get to see in your lifetime.

Reading books is a hobby that most of us do not devote time to specifically, but on a rainy day when nothing else seems interesting, a quick peek into your bookshelf will reveal hidden gems that will keep you enthralled for the next several hours. Books also improve your knowledge span, in small ways and big, and greatly broaden your vocabulary as well. Which is also why a bibliophile will always sound smarter without meaning to, than one who restricts the amount of literature that he absorbs from this world.

Indulge yourself or your children with boxed sets of timeless classics and family favorites; they will become hand-me-downs that will impart more character to the future generation than any heirloom ever can.

Helping you get ahead in life with an edge over the herd are the entrance exam preparatory books that give you all possible combinations of any test you ever might be interested in taking. Make your college life easier with text and reference books while professionals glean the most out of their jobs with supplements of how-to and technical books.

Open up a Pandora's box of literature for you and your kids with all the fiction titles in every language imaginable; instill nurture the love for books at an early stage, which is the greatest gift you can give your offspring, with age-specific book for children and teenagers.

Well-established as the biggest online bookseller in India with a database spanning more than a million titles and every genre possible, Flipkart has become a go-to resource for bibliophiles of every reading level. They have special discounts on certain titles and popular fiction and nonfiction titles apart from new releases collated to make browsing through them easier for you.

Buy books online from Flipkart with your credit card or via net banking, both of which have secure payment processing.
