Why I Failed-Bpb (English) : Book
Price: Rs. 199
In Stock. Delivered in 2-3 business days.
Misleading Title-Inspiring but doesn't talk failure
on 28 August 13
Prasoon rated:
certified buyer

This book has some inspiring stories, but a reader won't find sufficient arguments and events suggesting any failure. The book talks more about how the persons talked about took the challenges head-on and achieved extraordinary. A psyche searching a perspective on Failure will be disappointed. All the persons covered in the book are regularly talked about in News and magazines. Nothing new....a poor attempt....
Moreover, the pages in book are too cheap (may be recycled but very cheap against the price and total number of pages).
For readers who are more interested in reading inspiring lives of ordinary people then you have a brilliant choice in Rashmi Bansal's works.

Wonderful Book...But 2013 is not updated as per 2011 census
on 16 February 13
Prasoon rated:
certified buyer

A wonderful source of information in general...
But the book has not been updated with census 2011. Flipping first few pages can prove this. Though any reader can use it as a reference and update his/her data with any newspaper or a government web-site.

Sharp and Genuine
on 27 April 13
Prasoon rated:

Though flipkart has discontinued it's Indian edition (as it is not available here for past 4 months or may be more), I procured one from a Connaught Place book store. The writer has trenchantly commented on India's external affairs policy. This book remains one where a diplomat has taken care of his words, but the analysis and writing remains no where ostensible.
It has apparently neglected a few countries which for writer has given due justification.
The book remains well organized and Indian experts on EA like S Tharoor has extensively quoted Malone's words in his book Paxindica.

HELLO, BASTAR: The Untold Story\nof India?s Maoist Movement (English) : Book
Price: Rs. 295
In Stock. Delivered in 2-3 business days.
At least not Arundhati roy--but surely Pro-naxal and one sided

Those who have known plights of naxalism can better tell how half-baked naxal leaning Mr.Pundita has presented. Naxal movement can not be justified in the name of democratic rights. These maoists are organised terrorists. Mr.Pundita was allowed to visit them so how could have he ventured writing against these lunatics. There nazi working style and torture is known to one and all in the districts they dominate.
Serious readers shall diverse to sociological and historical research of subject.
Author shal be complemented for writing an engaging script.

Flipkart---Delivery@best;Packaging@good as per Indian standards.

Had read this book in July 2011. Late review though :)

Look At The Cover..And That's Enough To Read
on 15 May 12

From Hindustan to India, this nation has traveled half a dozen decades. Gurcharan Das has been fabulous throughout. I had the pleasure of reading this book years back, but still it is something I get back to regularly.
And I confess to be biased about it as I prefer gifting it to my friends even today.
And Flipkart beats everything in delivery, price, packaging....

Superbh

Prasoon rated:

A possession....for ever (if DVDs remain intact with me).
One shall not expect it to exact the book 'Discovery of India' but it is all five stars those who have seen this series on DD.
I had problems in two discs, but they were negligible to underestimate the product.

Undoubtedly an amzaing book but definitely with a left bias
on 02 October 13
Prasoon rated:
certified buyer

Reviews before this one have largely been true and this book indeed is an authority on Indian freedom struggle but it has a bias towards left wing political thoughts.

Hosseini misses a hatrick shot
on 02 October 13
Prasoon rated:
certified buyer

Read this book before I had bought one :) Hosseini is a brilliant story teller. His style of writing almost simulates an imagery in front of reader. Undoubtedly he has been skillful to retain this style but somewhere halfway story loses the magnetism.
Flipkart delivery- as always "waah !!!!!"

BRIC story from the man who coined the term
on 04 October 13
Prasoon rated:
first to review certified buyer

My reviews on books purchased from flipkart are very delayed...in this case almost two years late but this book is just a marvel....The author has discussed China and Brazil in greater details but has been sharp in finding merits and demerits of the BRIC countries. A must read indeed ! One will appreciate this book as it has lesser economic jargons and is largely written as a story.
