Expect a book that serves as a beginner’s guide into the world of creating and selling audiobooks. Expect a book that draws information from the author’s endeavors in the field. Expect a short read that doesn’t provide detailed and exhaustive information on the subject.
Anuj Tikku is a man with many talents. As a Bollywood actor he has worked in many big films including Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, No One Killed Jessica, Once Upon a Time in Mumbai, Khoya Khoya Chand, and many others. He has also worked in more than 65 commercials and is widely recognized as the face behind the trendsetting ad of Havell’s ‘Shock Laga Laga’.
Webbing the Webseries Web is a book that touches upon crucial aspects of content planning and execution of a web series. It is a book that offers both practical tips and personal insights on the subject. But in a more informal and candid fashion.
Unholy Tales from Banaras shows us a side of the city that often eludes a normal traveller. In addition to all its culturally rich experiences, the book lays bare its dark underbelly too. Expect a short read that shares multiple tales from the land of Banaras. Expect a book that is part fiction and part travel writing.
Party Girls: Nothing is Taboo is a mediocre read that sheds some necessary light on the fast growing business of lust and carnal pleasure, where girls sell their bodies to maintain a luxurious lifestyle that they otherwise can’t afford.
More often than not books give us life lessons that prove to be way more effective than classroom sessions. This is especially true in the case of memoirs and biographies. Hamari Gyano is one such book that gives us helpful insights into the world of law and order and how it is designed to reap lucrative dividends from the very people that it is meant to protect.
Anuj Tikku’s Yes Sir I Killed My Dad is the brutally honest story of Anuj’s rise and fall in Bollywood, his struggles and his successes, his achievements and his mistakes and finally his involuntary involvement in a murder mystery that shocked the entire nation.
Expect a book that is a very short read of just over fifty pages. Expect a book that takes you to the devilishly cold country of Russia along with some other eastern European countries. Expect a book that doles out a decent dose of practical advice and travel tips for those venturing into the cold sub-continent.
Expect a book that talks as much about the wildlife and jungles of Africa as it does about its people, its languages and its distinct culture. Expect a book that garnishes the author’s writing with some interesting looking photographs.
While reading Shankara: The Mansarovar Odyssey, expect a book that takes you to the beautiful world of Kailash-Mansarovar yatra and takes you through the entire experience in just 50 pages. Expect a book that also has a lot of pictures to complement the author’s personal experiences of the journey.
The Madness of the Monk tells us a fictional story of the author himself. The book narrates his meetings with a mystic “mad monk” whom the author inadvertently keeps bumping into while he is travelling around the scenic Dharamshala and the colonial Shimla. It is in these meetings that the author learns about the seven noble truths of life.
