Harry Potter and the Cursed Child |Book Review

Is there such a thing as ‘Happily Ever After‘? When J K Rowling showed us a glimpse of the life of older Harry Potter on the platform 9 3/4 long after the battle of Hogwarts was over, it did give an impression of being something very close to a happily ever after, if not perfect. But, life at its best is episodic….every generation seems to inherit the moral quest of their ancestors in some way and have to go through similar emotions and questions before they can make peace with their lives.

Once upon a time in India: The Marvelous Adventures of Captain Corcoran by Alfred Assollant | Book Reviews

Corpokshetra: Mahabharata in the MBA Yug by Deepak Kaul| Book Reviews

There is something with Mahabharata that it is near to the heart of many Indian (and those who truly explored Indian literature) souls, that it was told and retold and retold, many times; without loosing its charm.
