There were an era in Indian literature when author written good books on their life experience or on behavior of surrounding people/nature and gave us master pieces (remember author like Bibhutibhushan Bandyopadhyaya and Kaka Kalelkar). Why am I posting about such books? Right? Because I just completed “34 Bubblegums and Candies” written by Preeti Shenoy and I feel same for this book. It is a collection of 34 real life incidents which could happen to anybody. Some are humorous, some are moving, some are thought provoking but each of them brings out the essence and flavor of a journey called Life.
This book will surely tempt you. Pick it up and read it.
Source [Wiki]: Author started developing her writing skills since an early age, but only considered becoming a professional writer after she created herself a blog in October 2006. The number of page hits on her blog increased day by day, and readers throughout the world suggested her that she should consider publishing her texts.In 2007 she wrote a couple of art icles for MetroScan, a local magazine, and in the beginning of 2008 she was invited to start contributing regularly to the newspaper Times of India. On this same year she wrote articles for Reader’s Digest “Joy”, and had her articles republished in various other Indian newspapers and magazines. Encouraged by the favorable reception of her first publications, she decided it was time to dedicate to a larger project, and began writing her first book, a collection of narratives based on real life incidents, some of which had been previously posted on her blog in a shorter form. It was launched in October 2008. Her second book, a fictional novel about an Indian girl named Ankita Sharma, was published in January 2011. Her plans are to become a full time writer.
