Writing Skills - Author Review

I won't be writing the plot of the books. No words can describe it better than the story itself. However, I would like to comment on the nature if the author's writing.

Here, my author is AMISH TRIPATHI.


I have read all 4 of Amish Tripathi's books. Namely :

  1. The Immortals of Meluha
  2. Secret of the Nagas
  3. Oath of the Vayuputras
  4. The Scion of Ishvaku 
Every character is explained beautifully with a lot of feeling. How the author has been able to restrict his imagination to a fixed number of pages and yet make every character feel so full of life is something I can't get over.

Every incident brought out a new emotion; a sense of respect. Every page in itself felt like a climax. If you believe that Harry Potter and the Twilight Saga or 50 Shades of Grey are unbeatable, I suggest you give the Shiva Trilogy and Ram Chandra Series a try.

Amish Tripathi makes each character come alive - Be it Sati (full of motherly love, her admiration for her husband, helpful nature) or Shiva ( always ready to help anyone in need, open minded and curious), Parvateshvar (the General who lived the "real" life, who held his allegiance to his motherland above everything else, who kept his lifelong celibacy vow) or Anandmayi ( The Ayodhyan Princess who was a determined soul and who felt freedom was above everything), Ganesh (obedient son, noble leader, smart and knowledgeable Naga) or Karthik (the warrior and super intelligent) from the Shiva Trilogy. Or be it Sita (full of ideals who understood things logically) or Ram ( the law abiding royal, respectful husband and prince)  or Lakshman (protector of his brother) from the Ram Chandra series.

Even though the stories are set 2000 years ago, its incidents, thoughts and beliefs are quite relevant to the 21st century.

This was Tripathi's style of writing. Every author is different. Their uniqueness is what attracts us to their books.

I would like to end by saying :

Every person live 1 life
But a reader lives a 1000 lives.

Sab Ganda Hai, Par Sab Dhandha Hai - Maha Govt Plot Twist

Everyone looks forward to weekends for the simple reason that they get to relax, unwind and recharge themselves for another hectic workweek. But not the Maharashtra Govt. Atleast not this weekend. In between Friday night and Saturday early morning, our State Govt proved to us that if they put their minds to getting something done, they will; even if it involves staying up post their working hours. Hail Politics and Self - Interest!
I guess it's pretty apparent by now what this writeup is going to be about. But no. I won't bore you with that anymore. Instead, I'll include a few links to help you catch up:

Part 1 - Around Goa in 72 hours

Others would ask, “Goa jaake peeya nhi toh kya kiya?”. I, on the other hand would ask, “Goa jaake ghuma nhi toh kya kiya?” Now one would tell you that churches, beaches, drinking and clubbing are the only things to go for in Goa. But that isn’t the case at all. There sure is a lot more to do than just sit in your room or laze around the beach. Especially when you’ve driven 14 hours to reach your destination. Phew.

So what did I do? I took the car (and then scooty; with a GA registration) and drove full North Goa to South Goa. Out of the 1314kms that we drove, 100kms happened within the state in 3 days.
Day 1 we went to Baga beach in the morning but since neither I nor my dad had any plans of getting wet that morning, we headed to Fort Aguada, past Sinquerim beach for some sightseeing.


 This place is around 10kms (30mins) from Baga. It’s up on a mountain/hill and is a famous tourist spot. How’d I know? The number of cars were a lot and it felt like half of the family tourist crowd cam…
