Nayanathara's poems come straight from the heart and are marked by deep sympathy for all those who suffer: from the mythical Vaidehi to the salt-maker and the water-wife who slave for others and are abandoned to their dark fate. But she also is philosophical enough to understand someone like the Buddha whose dedication to a larger cause had compelled him to give up the comforts of home. She has the basic qualities of a poet and I am sure will soon master the form.

If You Only Knew Me is a story of friendship, passion and intrigue set in Dubai, arguably one of the world’s most exciting cities to live in.
Rupali, Anjali, Dipika, Sakina and Monica are five NRI women whose lives are glitzy and exciting as they flirt with high society within the charmed social circles frequented by the Dubai expat community. Beautiful homes, designer clothes, shoes, fast cars and a lifestyle that is envied by all, there is very little these women have not attained. Together they have also woven the closest of friendships and must rely on each other to stay on top.
Appearances are deceptive, though, and often the people you think you know the best, harbor secrets too dangerous to be shared. When tragedy befalls, the investigation that follows opens an ugly box of secrets that will test their friendship and find them struggling to make sense of the madness and deception surrounding them.
Who can they really trust anymore? How far must they go in their fight for survival?
How long will their friendship last once the masks have dropped and none can pretend any longer?More info →
In this memoir, the author recounts his experiences of growing up in Delhi during a period of ‘Biswin Sadi’— the 20th century, when it felt like a new age had just begun, although it’s already mid-century.
Living in a suburb of South Delhi called Nizamuddin East, with ruins of Mughal era buildings scattered all across, he recalls the people displaced by partition, piecing together their lives. An Anglo-Indian family— survivors of a vanishing tribe, living in a world of their own. A publisher of an Urdu magazine called Biswin Sadi, who had migrated from Lahore. An English-medium private school, resplendent with symbols of undivided Punjab, attempting to prepare leaders for taking over the reins of power, in a newly independent country.
By employing the metaphor of Hindi films the author paints a kaleidoscopic picture of the bygone century...those times without e-mail, or mobile phones.More info →
Here is a book to be shared with your closest friends. The Miscreant presents a cast that includes misbehaving young men, squabbling couples, and frustrated lovers, and it occupies a geography that ranges from 1930s India to present-day New York City. Victor is genuinely fond of his characters, from the harried husband in the slapstick “Peter and the Ants,” which turns pest control into a new world war, to the desperate young man in “Loving Ayesha,” a story that weaves secular love, religious ardor, and India’s struggle for freedom from British rule into the book’s most unlikely and affecting centerpiece. It’s a fondness that gives this collection an unusual—and welcome—warmth.More info →

The writings have been consistent in their furthering the liberal political perspective in matters in national security, strategic and peace studies. The book takes this cause ahead under challenging times, when as the book highlights, the chief national security challenge is from within, specifically from the dominant political ideology religious majoritarianism made palatable by the more saleable term cultural nationalism. The book needs reading alongside the eight books by the author published by CinnamonTeal over the past four years. The publications, that number over a thousand commentaries and articles, comprehensively cover the region in its nuclear age.More info →
H2W stands for Happiness, Health and Wealth! These are the three focus areas of this book and the book is written in this order while underlining the importance of attaining wealth. Five of the eleven chapters in the book are dedicated to this subject.
Driven by peer and societal pressure, an intense self awareness, and fear, many people do not have the time to develop a goal for themselves. They have many plans for their future and often confuse them for the long-term goal.
The book emphasizes the point that we need to open our eyes to the obvious things that will help us attain our goals. The author enunciates various points to illustrate, for example, that attaining wealth is not as difficult as it seems, is possible to do alone, and only requires one to follow a simple set of approaches.More info →
