Review - Ipad Case from

Hello All,

    Back after long long time, am I not? Yeah, well I was hurrying up from one exam to the other and making time for office, home, blogging, reading, novels and a few other time consuming projects. In the end, I started burning out. So now, after completing the exams, I decided to take a small break and the result is almost no posts of value in the last two months on this blog. My apologies.

    Well, the break part started well, started enjoying sitting down with having nothing to do, with an empty scheduler and not having an alarm that keeps going off to remind me to expedite. I started watching tv, writing a little, reading a little, taking holidays from work, traveling along with my new ipad. Yeah, a brand new ipad from the Apple Inc. It for sure is an awesome piece of hardware when it comes to gaming, being connected (not cluttered) and for many other purposes. Taking care of such a device is easy, simple and necessary.

    I just bought a case from and kudos, it really adds to the beauty of my ipad. White in color, slim, correct fit, high quality, great visual impression, smooth and soft with a nice fragrance (I some how love the smell of new leather). I am so impressed by it, that I even bought a piece for a friend right away. The executive case cover (as they call it) can be converted into a flip stand, with pockets for cash, cards, tickets and important notes, an automatic sleep/wake function and a lot more.

    The case comes with nice exterior material which is tough, easy to clean. The interior is soft, as in baby soft, to prevent scratches and such. The hand strap gives extra comfortable grip, the internal Velcro tab provides good security and helps in securing the ipad in position in the case. The case comes with's promise of quality, No fuss returns, World wide shipping (free if order is > $50) and many more features.

    Uploading some pics below. Don't forget to check them out.  Definitely a must buy. Link to the case I bought is here

SignatureAfterParty -- ITC Kakatiya, Hyderabad

Hello All,

    Hope your month of may started well. The other day, I was blogging about starting the month of may as a new leaf, with loads of changes including exercise, study and such. I was writing a set of rules for myself  and the moment I started planning for a nice party, I got invitation to IPL after party, organized by Signature last night at ITC Kakatiya, Hyderabad from a friend.

ITC Kakatiya
  Just a quick word about the party, it was fabulous. My home team, the SunRisers were present there after their spectacular victory over the Mumbai Indians. The grander, the players, the models, the fashion show, the venue, the organizers, the food and the spirits all amazed me and made the night memorable. The hosts knew how to throw a party, the chefs knew what to cook, the bar tender was highly dextrous with his spirits and the counter was stacked with the right spirits, the guests knew how to party hard all night, the DJ was great and the event turned out to be  a glamorous one. 

    You can follow check out the updates on twitter using the #SignatureAfterParty hash-tag and relive the night with stunning pictures on instagram/live_instyle.

    Have you been to these IPL After Parties? Enjoyed them? Share your experience with us. Got any events / parties coming up in this month in Hyderabad? Do let me know, for I would be pleased to join.  Looking forward for more such parties and wishing you all a great day ahead

Month of May, Glasses and Health Care

Hello All,

    Hope you are all doing well. Today starts the month of may and like me for every procrastinator, today is supposed to be the beginning of a new era. (Yeah,
5K Run
some procrastinators want to change and they

need an auspicious time/new week/new month to start the change). So what am I planning to change? I wanna add a round of study sessions into my daily schedule, cut facebook time, cut eating out, start savings, build emergency fund and start an exercise regime to become fit and run 5km in 3 months. So wish me luck

  Before starting any exercise regime, you must consult a doctor, a fitness pro for advises, tips and to learn the procedures and strategy needed to conquer the goals. So my thoughts went towards health-care and I started marveling about the wonders of modern health care. I know people are born and die all time, yet today, you needn't die due to diseases which wiped out villages in the past, you needn't suffer from most of the aliments, all you need is access to good hospital with professional doctors.

  I hear about cases where cancer is cured, livers/kidneys/other vitals are
transplanted, cosmetic surgeries are performed to ensure better health, better life to the person (or patient) in question. That is a miracle. Not just that, even simple things like reading glasses are a marvel to me. I needed glasses from very young age and today without glasses, my visibility is as low as 10 meters. I couldn't see the black-board, the ball in the cricket game, couldn't appreciate the nature, the greenery of grass, the beauty of birds and many other things. Thanks to modern health care, I can now, with glasses of-course. 

 Seriously, my life is changed. Assume there aren't glasses in the world, I would have just been a cripple, probably a dependent on my dad and nothing more. The other day, doctors found me fit to undergo PRK to ensure I don't need glasses anymore. The availability of glasses did change my life (though PRK is just another option). That is thanks to modern health care. The guys in the white coats, did save my ass a couple of times from complications both life threatening and otherwise. 

Health Care
To know more about how cutting edge technology helps in giving us a better life, forget not to visit Apollo Hospitals or follow them using the #ApolloTouchingLives. Did health care change things for you? Did something impact your whole life? Did it touch your life?

Book Review: Warrior Girl

Hello All,

How is your week going on? Today I have the review of Warrior Girl by Matt Lazar & Amanda Thomas. Here we go:

Warrior Girl
This is one wonderful book which revolves around Sun Hi, a Korean girl and her dream of becoming successful, self-confident and independent women. When Sun Hi joins the prestigious Oxford for an economics course, life ain’t easy for her. She has a lot to learn, a lot to know and a lot to fight for, if she wants her way of life.

    A brilliant student, who also loves plants, farms, gardens, world of Warcraft who fought all the way to Oxford, only to find that odds are placed heavily against her, thanks to tough college work, a not so friendly roommate,

competition from a rich, spoilt Japanese boy who
Author Matt Lazar
spews venom at the very sight of Sun Hi, a rowing team captain who has cruel intentions. The only respite is the love of Adam, which she is reluctant to accept owing to pressures at college, very high standards expected out of her, traditional values and much more.

    The book portrays Sun Hi so well, that every ambitious youth can co-relate himself/herself with Sun Hi. The epic scene, where she turns into a warrior from a quitter is so cool that it inspires you for sure.
Author Amanda Thomas
Juggling college, a new part time job at a nursery, being coxswain in rowing team of Oxford, love, parents, sabotage and repeated attempts to undermine her Sun Hi rises above them all and proves that her will is made out of steel for sure.

    What to look for in the book?  wonderful characters, glory and richness of campus life at oxford, the beauty of rowing on river Thames, nice twists and turns, ample will power of Sun Hi,  loads of love, care and warmth which Sun Hi receives.


Have you read the book? What is your view? Planning to read the book, hurry up and visit the book here. You can get more info about the book on the official website

Author Interview -- Karl F. Hollenbach

Morning All,

   Today I have Karl F. Hollenbach, the author of A Journey to the Four Kingdoms doing an author interview for us. Here we go:

  1. Tell us about your book in two sentences.
    A fantasy for children, 4th grade through 10th grade, primarily 10-14 years old, which follows a Prince Royal from early childhood through emerging adulthood. Emphasizes enduring traits of true friendship, the guidance of companions, teachers and peers and how ultimate strength is found within.
  2. How did the plot for this book develop?
    Watching our two grandsons grow from infants to young children I was amazed at how their personalities developed and the occasional insight they casually evidenced. I was compelled by their offhanded comments to begin thinking of how they would continue into early adulthood.

  3. When did you decide that you must be an author?I don’t recall deciding to become an author. I very definitely remember wanting to write an article for a magazine to which I subscribed. I felt I had something to say and was obliged to share it.

    Becoming “an author” was certainly not my goal. Sharing an insight was my goal. After the first article was published, I found myself with another calling, another article that evolved into my first book. “Becoming an author” happened, but entirely because I had multiple instances of a message I wished to share.

  4. Do you see yourself in any of the characters? Explain briefly.
    It is difficult, almost impossible, for any writer not to put something from himself or herself into every character. Sometimes an author purposefully puts more of his experiences, dreams and aspirations into a particular character, inevitably the author “identifies” more with this almost-personification. Every character has something of “me” in them, be it hopes and desires, or fears and dreads.

    In A Journey To The Four Kingdoms I imagined myself more as one of the young prince royal’s companions – Charles, the deliberating mantis. Also as Karlus Magnus, one of Pid’s soul-parents, essentially a guide and teacher.

  5. Any further books or projects in the pipe?
    I am currently outlining and researching a new novel, titled Holy Ground. A mystery set in the 1930’s it uses flashbacks to solve what appears to be an impossible situation.
  6. What’s one piece of advice from you to aspiring writers?
    Do not over-emphasize technique and writing skills. Having something to say is as important, if not more important. Develop your message with visualization, concentrated affirmations, and even meditation.
  7. Your favorite book and why?
    oo many to even begin listing. Every year the favorites list gets longer.
  8. Writers resources, which everyone must have as per you?
    Support from family and friends. The difference between good and outstanding may be attributed to education and life-experiences.

    Follow your passion, use your intuition to learn what message or messages you need to carry.

  9. Your most rewarding experience as an author?
    Several, in fact, many! The most recent was when my son asked if he could publish my works electronically on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc.
  10. Where can we find you online? How to reach you?
    The best way to find me is at Just use the “Contact Us” page. My publisher or the Blog Master will forward any message to me.

    I do not move as fast as I used to, so give me several days to reply.

  11. Quick note about promotional activities planned for the book.
    My publisher has a marketing plan developed by the Book Publicist, Astrid Gay, at Books, Authors and Artists.

    The highlights are this virtual book tour, a Facebook page and attending the London Book Fair in April. Ms. Gay is knowledgeable and very talented so I am sure she will be coming up with other events.

Book Blurb: The Monsterjunkies, An American Family Odyssey

Morning All,

Tucked away in a remote cul-de-sac on the Maine coast is a place where the strange is normal, and the bizarre, is everyday. This is a place, where, if you do not have an open mind, you will loose your mind in its reality and truths. This is the home of The Monsterjunkies, An American Family Odyssey.

Residing at this place, twelve year old Crow and his fourteen year old sister, Indigo , along with their friends go down a reality curve to arrive at the harsh truth of the indelible hurt bullying, emotional abuse and prejudice can foster. The family faces ignorance combined with aggression at every step as they try to build a life for themselves in the home of their ancestors.

We are all MonsterJunkies and wear masks during our daily lives, in school, during work, hanging out with friends, imitating, being people who we look up to and admire, or those we want to be. It is those people who take off their masks and show the real person inside who are the ones that truly find the meaning of their lives.

The Monsterjunkies an American Family Odyssey, defines growing up through a cast of quirky yet engaging characters who also experience the same anxieties as any other family, enduring the issues that portend ‘coming of age.' Not all angst and agony, it marks a clear path to the ultimate form of acceptance, the approbation of self.

Wishing MonsterJunkies all success

Book Blurb: The Great Hawk

Hello All,

Today I have The Great Hawk by Karl F. Hollenbach. Here we go with the book blurb:

This story of Jimmy and his grandparents is related in several levels. It stands tall as well written prose with events taking place between the early 1930s to mid-1940s. Starting with a most picturesque description of a trip to Jimmy’s grandparent’s farm the story compels the reader to continue further to discover the next stop in his journey.

As a literal tale of Jimmy’s desire to train a baby hawk in the art of falconry the story captures your interest and quickly develops the associated problems. The allegorical (meaning) and tropological (moral) levels are presented and progress with easily read prose, illustrated by the necessary general context of change.

The countryside elements portray a mystery like awareness for Jimmy stimulating the powerful description of his imagination similar to that of a perched hawk he imagines is on his own hand.

The author’s re-written ending un-mystifies the anagogical level – the spiritual or mystical interpretation. Engaging the reader with a straightforward story the various levels are present if the reader wishes to see and understand

Hello All,

Wishing you all a Happy New Year. Hoping that 2013 would be quite prosperous to you and your family.

Today, I have to share, the book blurb of techo-thriller "Dark Application One" by Brian Krogstad. Here we go:

Like any other college guy, he dreams about Amy, his grade-school crush, and finds time to party on the weekends while struggling to make his meager budget pay his bills. But unlike anyone else, Luke has discovered the secret Department of Defense Application for Remote Kinetics that unlocks a whirlwind of shocking events, and changes Luke's life direction forever.

While working as an intern at a Computer Information Systems research facility, Luke secretly downloads games from the main server onto his smart phone. Unbeknownst to him, Dark Application is also installed on his phone. And once Dark Application is installed on a phone, it can never be removed. Suddenly Luke's life takes on utterly unpredicted changes; he passes his first Chemistry exam, he mysteriously acquires a large sum of money, and he finally gets the girl of his dreams go out with him on Valentine's Day. Slowly the Dark Application sucks him in, and he becomes addicted and unable to put it down.

Lurking just around the corner in this thriller are horrific secrets and mystery that land Luke in a world of hurt, and he becomes entangled in a web of murder, lies, and criminal activities that shock the town and lead to his ultimate destruction. Dark Application: One, is the technothriller of the iPhone era and a fast-paced, quick read, that will lead into the next book of  the Dark Application Series.
