A cow discovers her farmer's dark secrets and decides to leave the farm house with her friends, forming a motley crew that is set on making new records in David Duchovny's Holy Cow.
Summary of the Book
On a night like any other, Elsie Bovary, a bovine inhabitant of an idyllic farm, and her friend Mallory venture out of their pasture. While Mallory resorts to flirting with bulls, Elsie canters towards the farmhouse. As she peers through the window, she finds her farmer and his family as they sit around a glowing Box God that reveals what industrial meat truly means. Elsie is scandalized and she decides to leave the farm. Thus, a motley crew of animals is formed, and Elsie is joined by two unlikely allies: Jerry, a.k.a Shalom, a Torah-reading pig who seeks approval from his brethren in Jerusalem, and Tom, a flightless turkey who knows how to operate an iPhone. Stealing passports and decking themselves in human attire, these animals make for the airport and seek freedom. However, what lies in store for these creatures? Will Tom learn to fly? Can Shalom make peace with his Judaic brethren? With the unique comic voice of David Duchovny, this book is a waterslide of fun and humour.

Living in a sunny barsati in south Delhi, Saurav Jha and Devapriya Roy are your average DINK couple, about to acquire a few EMIs and come of age in the modern consumerist world. Only, they don't. They junk the swivel chairs, gain a couple of backpacks and set out on a transformational journey across India. On a very, very tight budget - 500 rupees a day for bed and board. And The Heat and Dust Project begins. Joining the ranks of firang gap-year kids and Israeli boys and girls fresh out of compulsory army service, they travel across a whacky, whimsical land, where five thousand years of Indian history seem to jostle side by side. It is, by turns, holy and hectic, thuggish and comic, amoral and endearing. In buses that hurtle through the darkness of the night and the heat of the day, across thousands of miles, in ever new places, the richness of this crowded palette spills over into their lives. From rooms-by-the-hour to strange dinner invitations and spectacular forts and tantrums, this is a tale of the hysterical searching of youth, of eccentric choices and the supreme test of marriage.
I'll make my sisters squirm like well-salted earthworms. I won't sell. Even my jutti wont sell. And if I die na, then even my gosht won't sell!
The late Binodini Thakur had been very clear that she would never agree to sell her hissa in her Bauji's big old house on Hailey Road. And her daughter Bonu, is determined to honor her mothers wishes.
But what to do about her four pushy aunts who are insisting she sell? One is bald and stingy, one is jobless and manless, one needs the money to 'save the nation' and one is stepmother to Bonus childhood crush-brilliant young Bollywood director Samar Vir Singh, who promised BJ upon his deathbed that he would get the house sold, divvy the money equally and end all the bickering within the family.
The first word baby Bonu ever spoke was 'Balls' and indeed, she is ballsy, bullshit-intolerant, brave and beautiful.
But is she strong enough to weather emotional blackmail by the spadefull? Not to mention shady builders, wily politicians, spies, lies and the knee-buckling hotness of Samars intense eyes?
Sharply observed and pulse-quickeningly romantic, this is Anuja Chauhan writing at her sparkling best!
30 Women in Power carries the inimitable voices of Indian women who have been pioneers and led large organizations in banking, law, the media, advertising, government services, health care, consulting, the fast-moving consumer goods sector and the not-for-profit space. In these narratives told up, close and personal thirty of Indias greatest women achievers speak of the guiding principles that have held them in good stead, the role models who have anchored them, the childhood influences that have shaped their values and the interests outside the world of work that have revitalized them. Coming from all walks of life, these empowered woman discuss their many successes and their dreams for the future. Yet, they also venture to disclose the setbacks that have preceded hard-won conquests, the barriers, psychological or otherwise, that may have held them back at certain points and the compromises theyve had to make to reach the top.
Through these honest and contemplative revelations, thirty women in power answer those questions that confront all working women from how best to balance the personal and the professional, to how to dismantle gender biases. Equally, the essayists consider seminal issues that concern every committed professional, man or woman - What are the qualities that define a leader? Where does one find a mentor? What are the ingredients in the recipe for success? Edited by business leader extraordinaire Naina Lal Kidwai, this topical and relevant book is a must-read, not only for the lessons it provides, but also for the intimate accounts it offers of lives powerfully lived.
A portrait of the stoner as a young man. Krantik is cynical, jaded and utterly bored. He's also a paranoid hypochondriac. An Indian working in Rome, he drifts aimlessly through a failed engagement with the assistance of several intoxicants and a short-lived love affair. Krantik's personal revelations and delusions of grandeur - exquisitely funny and devastatingly poignant - expose the hollowness of social mores and the anxieties of a rootless generation. This is a clever, bizarre tour de force, part noir, part philosophical and entirely likable. Kerouac meets Joyce meets Harold & Kumar meets Jonathan Lethem in this wildly inventive love letter to a city that critically acclaimed author Kaushik Barua has lived in and loved for years.
Aaliya Saleh lives alone in her Beirut apartment, surrounded by stockpiles of books. Godless, fatherless, childless, and divorced, Aaliya is her family's 'unnecessary appendage'. Every year, she translates a new favourite book into Arabic, then stows it away. The thirty-seven books that Aaliya has translated over her lifetime have never been read - by anyone.
This breathtaking portrait of a reclusive woman follows Aaliya's digressive mind as it ricochets across visions of past and present Beirut. Colourful musings on literature, philosophy, and art are invaded by memories of the Lebanese Civil War and Aaliya's own volatile past. As she tries to overcome her ageing body and spontaneous emotional upwellings, Aaliya is faced with an unthinkable disaster that threatens to shatter the little life she has left.
A love letter to literature and its power to define who we are, the prodigiously gifted Rabih Alameddine has given us a magnificent rendering of one woman's life in the Middle East.
Ronald Vivian Smith is an author of personal experiences-a rare breed to find in a time when even journalists hesitate to put pen to paper without scanning through the Internet. A definitive voice when it comes to some known and unknown tales and an inspiration to a new generation of city-scribes, Smith is a master-chronicler of Delhis myriad realities.
Among the capitals most ardent lovers, Smith believes in the power of observation and interaction. His travels across Delhi, most often in a DTC bus, examine the big and small curiosities seamlessly juxtaposing the past with the present. Be it the pride he encounters in the hutments of one of Chandni Chowks age-old beggar families, or his ambling walks around Delhis now-dilapidated cemeteries, Smith paints with his words a city full of magic and history. This anthology features short essays on the Indian sultanate, its fall after the British Raj and its resurrection to become what it is today the National Capital Territory of Delhi.
No amount of bookish knowledge can compete with the sort of insights and real, lived memories he [Smith] has.Rakshanda Jalil, LiveMint.
When it comes to writing on monuments of Delhi known, little known or unknown no one does a better job than R.V. Smith.Khushwant Singh, Hindustan Times'
