on Jan 08, 2021 From an in-depth read on ancient India's rich economic history, to a quirky look at the Indian 'arranged marriage drama', and two compelling thrillers written by forthcoming Indian writers, these books will have you turning pages from the beginning of the year. 'The Golden Bird 2.0' by Raina Singhwi Jain 'The Golden Bird 2.0' draws from India's rich past to take a fresh look at its potential for a glorious future -- a second golden age, shaped by the powerful public will, economic wherewithal, and the nation's status as the world leader. What made ancient India the Golden Bird in the first place? What did China, the Land of the Dragon, have in common with India, and when did these two ancient civilizations diverge on their paths to global success? While colonisation pressed the brakes on India's confidence and self-reliance, China emerged from imperialism with a clear vision for its future and strong implementation to boot. The oriental superpower fashioned itself as the world's factory, creating jobs and uplifting millions of people from poverty. How did China make its mark on the world stage, and where did India fall behind? How can India tap into its golden past to pave the way for a brighter future? Can Atmanirbhar Bharat and Make in India usher in a new era of economic growth and global leadership? A closer look at our journey since Independence reveals the gaps that we need to bridge. Can we draw from the vision and ideals of our own freedom struggle to build the next phase in our future? While conventional wisdom suggests improvements in manufacturing, the ease of doing business and digital technology, Jain delves deeper, to draw surprising parallels between other areas that beg our attention -- such as process engineering, communication design, journalism, decentralization of power and disaster management. 'Sugar and Spice' by Sonali Punj Singh

The budding love, romance, jealousy, hopes, fights will take you to the heights of dopamine and keep you engaged during the whole read.
