KISS Your Life With Book April Anecdotes - A Review

There is a famous quote "What's in the name.." and my recent read made me believe in it even more. Most of us try to judge any story based on its name. But at times our assumption fails. A book with a great title may results in a boring read, whereas a simple looking read can touch you deeply. Natasha Sinha's book "April Anecdotes" is my recent shot of motivation. Although I had many choices out of big names.

About Natasha

Natasha started writing when she was five. For her writing is a soothing nourishment to the soul. She has spent twenty-five years in advertising, PR, corporate communication and in the development sector. Since July 2016, she has been giving full time to her passion of writing, leaving her professional life completely. Her first book "Travel Epiphanies" was published in July 2017. She writes for the sheer joy of fulfillment and believes in making life worth. She actively blogs at www.natashamusing.com.

About The Book 


Her book "April Anecdotes" is a compilation of twenty-six stories about some real people, and some not so real people. Every tale is full of hope and positivity. The title of each chapter gives you a reason to get hooked and read. A few stories would look as real as your day to day musings. And even fictional ones look so real and inspiring. In fact, I love all twenty-six chapters. They all give you a reason to appreciate what we have in our lives and how can we make our living even more beautiful. Like the chapter "Heart, Mind And Soul" says,

Life is too short to be lived dispassionately. When we seize the moment and give ourselves completely to the simplest of acts, life becomes meaningful. 


Then another chapter "One With Nature" is a must read to realize that life becomes so much peaceful when we stop trying to swim upstream, when we accept that change is certain and we should not fear it. The most intriguing read for me was a chapter, Kiss. It says we all should kiss often. Possibly a number of times every day. No, this has nothing to do with intrusiveness. Kiss in the context stands for "Keep It Simple, Stupid". The kiss principle says that most systems work best if they are kept simple rather than made complicated. The same model, when applied in our lives, works wonders too. How? I feel I may not be able to explain it well. The chapter deserves a dedicated read.

I feel Natasha's book has everything. Purpose to enjoy each day of life, ways to convert negativity to sunshine, and wisdom to appreciate even the tiniest thing around us. Go on and read. The only thing I find missing is page numbers in the table of content in the beginning of the book. I am into the habit of tracking page numbers which is of course my choice and might not affect your reading.

A few questions to Halloween party people of India

Ugly pumpkins, ridiculous costumes and over-the-top makeup, trick or treating for kids and scary themed parties for the adults, the story of Halloween runs deeply in the Western culture. And these days I have been observing a flood of Halloween posts in my social media accounts . "10 ideas to celebrate Halloween with your kids..", "10 craft projects for Halloween..", "10 things to do at Halloween night.." There are parties happening for Halloween. Costumes are getting sold. Myriads of contests are posting spooky pictures and asking to share even more ghostly pictures. And amidst all this, I am puzzled, baffled and tickled.

I don't know if this is the notion of globalization or a modest thought to adopt cultures regardless of the geographical borders. Howbeit, I am sure about one thing that I hate the idea of kids celebrating Halloween here in India.

I have a few questions in my mind that I humbly want to ask those Halloween party people:
How you are p…

#MyFriendAlexa - Is Your Blog For Everyone?

A Bit of Introduction 

Two months back, I joined a new company as a software project manager. And with this, I also shifted to a new city. I could not write much during this shifting time, as there were many other things that needed my attention on priority. With a new job, new city and a new house, I faced challenges of finding a new school for my kid, a new market where I can buy staple items and a new setup for my family which was in habit of living a comfortable life in Delhi. #MyFriendAlexa I took as an opportunity to proffer life back to my blog which was the most neglected entity of my world during this movement and adjustment span. My target is to write 8 posts for #MyFriendAlexa campaign in which 4 will make you a bit more compassionate person, and remaining 4 will make you more informed.
