Book Review: I Also Slept with Rashmi Verma by Love Thon

‘I Also Slept with Rashmi Verma’ by Love Thon (pen name) is a slightly erotic book about an oomph college chick named Rashmi Verma who is famous for sleeping with many guys of the college. However, when it comes to the narrator – his luck is hard. Why? Not all girls that look easily available are meant for all. The narrator though comes into her acquaintance very soon, but when it comes to have her, he fails miserably. But why?

The major backdrop of the story is staged against some college campus. On one hand Rashmi is experimenting with other guys, from sturdy to romantic to bullheaded and so on. On the other hand, she presumes to be in love with the narrator, but their love does not reach bedroom, and this is causing major worry for the guy. Probably, the concurrent theme that takes over soon is about infatuation that normally happens when we are young or at college life.

The book is not so lengthy, but still has thirty one short chapters. And each chapter runs like a movie scene – critics may say the book is about adultery gossiping – however in our opinion we found it a funny account of a guy who shuttles between the charming threads of love, infatuation, and a few more feelings. The book, at times, may arouse you but it runs like a movie and is not so profoundly smeared with erotic scenes that we often find in Shobha De or some other writers books.

Yes, the title is little quirky, well the story makes for it. Without giving much, we can say that it can fit into your one-time-read book, especially when you watch less Bollywood stuff and think that some books can make that gap fill for you. The language of the book is easy and worth steering your imagination. The writer has a few more books to his name, however cannot disclose as he prefers using pen name for this particular book. If you are in often search of light erotic read, well then go nowhere and stick to it.

Book Review: The Lost Child by Mulk Raj Anand

The Lost Child is a riveting short story by Mulk Raj Anand. A little boy and his parents are on their way to a village fair on account of a spring fair. The alley leading to the fair is alive with a vivid combination of colours and people.

The boy is happy and chirpy and walking between the big limbs of his father, between the long strides. As he can see there are toys in the shops lined along the way. He is captivated by the colourful toys of different sizes and shapes but in his observation he lags behind. So he runs ahead to be with his parents. When he expresses the desire to own one of the toys hanging from the shops, a cold stare from his father breaks his heart.
Suddenly, to break his attention from the lingering toys, his mother tenderly shifts his attention to the swaying muster field, which seems to be full of golden ripples – moving to and fro. The boy enters the field and begins chasing butterflies, black bees and dragon flies. But soon he is called back.
Once they appr…
