Book Review: In Search of Heer – by Manjul Bajaj

Only few writers consistently manage to sneak past my ‘defences’ to impact me viscerally. One of them wrote the book I’ve just finished, “In Search of Heer“. “As I began to play, I was unable to speak of God at first. My flute, its heart full of hunger pangs, cold floors, the sorrow of leaving […]

Book Review – The Silk Roads: A New History of the World

I’ve enjoyed books like Martin Gilbert’s “History of the Twentieth Century” and J.M.Robert’s “History of Europe“. Both of these classics portray a conventional account of how Europe evolved over centuries.
