 27 March 2018

ONLY ONE MAN CAN STOP HIM – PROFESSOR BLACK.Maher was found unconscious in the middle of the highway and later, in the hospital, she revealed that she had escaped from a killer’s house. All the details and patterns matched the serial killer ‘Kansa,’ who had disappeared five years ago after murdering forty pregnant women. ACP Saargi Desai was assigned to the case. She appealed to her department to bring back Professor Black to help her catch the killer. The Professor, who had a haunting past that had kept him away from the world of crime and investigation for several years, was not willing to take on this case. But the ACP managed to convince him to get on board just for this one last time. Soon after agreeing to help, the Professor realized that for the first time in his life, he had met his match. As he dug deeper into the case, everything got dirtier, the stakes went higher, and nothing was what it seemed.Intrigue:‘Kansa’ is the First book of ‘The Killer trilogy’ series by Prassant Kevin. The book narration starts with a couple who are traveling back after marriage at Corbett, whose car met with an accident, which rans out on Meher who is an escaped victim from KaNsa. The story grips with “ACP Saargi Desai” who suspects the impression of serial killer Kansa, who seeks help of a alcoholic, drug addict, womanizer yet criminology expert “Professor Black” to break this killing mystery of forty pregnant women and their babies.Not to further be a spoiler, this book answers the questions:Who is kaNsa?Why is the motive of killing pregnant women and their babies?Did ACP and Professor could break this mystery ?How Meher escaped from killer clutches ?To know yourself, read this crime thriller kaNsa. My Review:To start off , the book cover is damn awesome specially the EMBOSED title, the background picture and fine quality paper with bigger font which is handy makes happy to carry. It was one of the most awaited crime thrillers, the pace of book is very good and you will not find yourself bored at any point and a perfect nail biter.Book starts with a hidden message, a second of driving negligence needs more pay off and in other way that paves a great start as clue to find the serial killer, “There is no one either good or bad, but circumstances make them so” , one of the best thing in kaNsa is the story is written and narrated in third person point of view. writing style is pretty clear, decent content and has minimal grammatical errors, can be ignored in interest of plot. The narration was so perfect, I can feel those come before my eyes when I am reading the book (may be due to midnight read)At few places due to suspect and mysterious nature, readers will literally experience chills in their spine (sweet warning), this book pulled me from love and romance to crime and suspense genre ( I stacked three already) ,title kaNsa and story progress makes the keen readers feels the mythological impression in the intrigue.Below few unanswered questions made me to go with a star less:1. Professor Black family ?2. Logical or medical reason to kill pregnant women3. The necklace4. Two pictures of of three by Meher5. Annu Kesharwani, white rabbit6. Exact male who torture and kill pregnant women7. Arjun involvement in crimeLooking forward for Book:2 in this trilogy series,overall kaNsa turns out to be a perfect crime thriller, with decent story-line,well narrated, fit to screen-played, minor grammatical errors, nail biting page turner. Even the last page has an amazing twist that paves a thought for the upcoming one. kaNsa serves as reference for “Criminology” enthusiastLink:KaNsaRegardsKiran K Adharpuram

Book Review: Pralay: The Great Deluge (Harappa) by Vineet Bajpai
 28 March 2018  

Blurb"“Even death is afraid of the White Mask…”1700 BCE, Harappa – The devta of Harappa has fallen…tortured and condemned to the dungeons of the dead.

The Blood River rises to avenge her divine sons.What happens to the devta of Harappa? Is Vidyut truly the prophesied saviour? Who are the veiled overlords behind the sinister World Order? What was the macabre blueprint of the mysterious emperor at Bithynian City? Turn the pages to unravel one of the world’s greatest conspiracies and the haunting story of a lost, ancient civilization."About bookReading level: 12+ yearsPaperback: 315 pagesPublisher: VB Performance LLP (19 January 2018)Language: EnglishReviewThe Author has done an awe-inspiring job in its prequel, “HARAPPA” and I was enthusiastically waiting for its sequel and here it is. My tick- tock waiting watch is stopped and finally I am giving my verdict on Pralay – the great deluge.I enjoyed Pralay-The great Deluge which is the second part of Harappa - the curse of the Blood River.Like the volume one, this book holds the equivalent charisma and page turner for all. Several characters role play shows instantaneously in this book, like a historical drama based move rolling.Coming to the story, in the last book we had seen that Vivasan pujari was sentenced to mrit karavas like a hell type place and on the next day numerous torture done by King Chandrashekhar army. He landed to the west of Harappa, at the place of Sura, the mighty demon king, with the extreme mental country of in search of revenge of the fatality of his beloved soul mate Sanjana and his single son. The mighty king agrees to help him, but in exchange for something, which stunned the great devta for an instant. On the other end in Banaras, Vidyut flabbergasted and immobilized to see the sudden alteration of Bala, his brotherhood friend. On which earth Bala tried to kill Vidyut and who is the mastermind behind it. Each passing moment Vidyut condition is getting life-threatening. Does he recover from it? In the meantime, meanwhile, the Masaan Raja, the deity of the dead, Trijaat Kapaalik entered the matth with his 666 maniac followers and his guts left everyone stunned in the matth. What was the purpose to visit in such horrible phases to the Matth? Another fragment of the story, Manu succeeded to get away with the lifeless body of his adored mother with the support of Pundit Somdutt and swift with his horse to the East of Harappa in search of the Black Temple as directed. On the way, he met Matshya, a mystery man.Manu seeks help from this mystical man Masaya for taking revenge for the death of his parents. Did he help Manu on his mission? All mystery will solve, once you go through the book. The fast pace of the book holds you till the end & it’s a single sit read for me. Writing a historical fiction is a tough job and need too much research to make it the best. The Author has succeeded in that case. Language and narration are breath-taking from its first page of the book. Mythology was never my cup of tea, but recently I have read few amazing mythology related novels including this and I just loved it now. I was gripped and enthralled by the transformation of the pujari into evil. Saptrishi and Vidyut played and justified their role. The cover is not unique still simple and good it could have been better. The title is catchy, this book I never thought will be released soon I must pat on the back of author for his creativity and imaginations!4/5 to this book!

But a turning point in their lives sets them apart, with their soul still united and strong. Experience a roller coaster of emotions in this story. Find out how Sushil changed into a successful person from an ordinary boy.My TakeStarting from the title of the book You Are the best thing That Happened to Me gives the hint’s to readers it’s going to be a love story. The title is apt according to the plot.  It’s been said that never judge a book cannot be judged by looking at its cover alone but I personally feel cover can be much better to catch attraction among readers.The story starts with an award function where our protagonist Sushil Pandit receives an award for best employee of the year 2016. Sushil Pandit is a mechanical engineer by profession and author of two bestselling novels. He has achieved everything in life except the love of his life. After the function on his way to home he happens to meets Anuradha a journalism student who doing some research on authors. Anuradha wants to know more about Sushi’s life after achieving everything in life he is incomplete.  Then the story enters into the flashback memories of when he was in school. Sushil joins a coaching center with his friends to improve grades in subject. There he meets Anjali for the first time and felt attracted towards her. Later Anjali and Sushil become best friends who can understand each other well. Sushil was confused with his feelings towards Anjali is it love or attraction? Ashish and Anjali are they both equally important to him he can’t even think of losing one for other. On the other hand Ashish had a crush on Anjali. To know more what happened next to Sushil read the book.The author had beautifully weaved the struggles of every middle class family, the family bonding, surprise birthday celebration of Anjali at tuition center, hang outs with friends, decision to choose between career and love, struggles after college, job hunt and many more incidents. I love how cunning crafted the mother and sons bonding.Language of the book is lucid and written in a simple way to comprehend for any kind of reader. A book which won’t require the use of a dictionary, a book which evens an amateur reader would love to get indulged in. The pace of the story is slow and kept dragging at some time. The characters are well developed and one can easily relate them.  Narration of the book is simple and engaging. A few typographical errors here and there need to be rectified. If the edit was done properly, the story would have sounded much better. If the Hindi dialogues were translated into English it was much better since everyone will not able to understand it.I recommend this book to the readers who are seeking for a quick read or a light-hearted romantic novel.Overall 3/5 StarsGrab the copy here- Amazon |FlipkartAbout the AuthorSushil Kumar Rana is a Mechanical Engineer work in an MNC company in Odisha.

Miracle Morning and I
 10 October 2018  
Art

I don't know about miracle morning. Like any other netizens I was on Facebook. You tube is the option to motivate myself. I have seen countable videos. Listen from ear and stored in brain. But how much I understood, I don't know. Also I never like to know and implement it in life. But I love positive thinking. Some video-makers broadcasting their views- some thoughts and forwarded thoughts. I never subscribe all have seen. I was very much fond of Sandeep Maheshwari, Ujjal Patni. One day in the evening I seen the video which was telling about good books which will help us to progress in life. Success in life will not achieve from these motivational videos, but human body also need food. Brain need good thoughts, positive thinking will get from experienced, informational sites, motivational speakers. That day I pause the button of You Tube which was talking about Miracle Morning. What is that...A book...The book. That is not enough to describe this book or book series. 'Hal Elord' occupied my brain. It is so simple to read. That means its readable.

Review of “Wheels of Wish” by Bibhu Datta Rout
 21 February 2018  

Book - Wheels of WishAuthor - Bibhu Datta RoutGenre - Mythological and crime fictionMy Ratings - 3.5 / 5 ⭐️Review -This Crime Fiction novel by author Bibhu Datta Rout is both intriguing and refreshing. The story revolves around an incident that occurs in 2008, with the accused being Shashank, also happens to be in a romantic relationship with Roohani, the victim of the crime.This leads to an interesting chain of investigations, a lot of courtroom drama and conspiracies of unheard, unimaginable circumstances and links to past as old as 13th century.The story goes back to 1200 AD when the chain of mysteries has its roots linking historical and mythological figures which is an Essential dimension in the whole storyIt’s a very short, descriptive and to the point novella, of about 200 pages. The good thing is that the author doesn’t seem intent on beating around the bush. But only at some places it feels a little rushed. The work of mythological facts and fiction is beautifully blended.That being said, the language, narrative and editing could have been much better. Also the Direct translation of certain Hindu words into English is a bit of a let down. I would want more had it not been for some loose ends the book had left.Other than that it’s a good book. Short and fast paced.I’ll definitely recommend you to read this book, especially if you are a Mythological fiction fan.-The bookshire

The Wild Cat A deviant tale of a young woman, a banker and a conman who happen to meet on dating website. The Cover is beautiful and attractive. Title is also perfect for the plot.The story revolves around the line of protagonist Tanya aka Iron Angel, Dorothy, Adam, Mr. U W, Aaron aka Phantom or Alpha, Mrs. Martha, Sarah, Monica , Sam Baker aka call as Nick Baker or Cobra, Newguyintown,Notorious, Aunt Iris, Rookie, Venom, Rebel Queen, Rex, Mr. & Mrs. Baker, Stephanie Owens, Schmidt, Jeff Simpson, Dali, Frida.This is the story of female protagonist Tanya an art gallery owner inherited from her father. She lost her mother in her early age and her father had brought her up but later her father passed away in an accident. She was a alone and only have the support of her best friend Dorothy.  Dorothy is dating online through an app which matches with a person of similar interest and lets them talk in a group or one -one.Tanya also downloads the app iVoice once she learns that she has been using it to date this person who is the owner of a sexy voice according to her. iVoice is a dating app but the twist is that it’s not like any other dating app. It’s a dating app based on voices of different people. One can only connect with another person she is interested in by hearing his voice. No real names, no identities. Just voice. The application has a option to lock in the phone number and also has a voice changer option if any user feels not to reveal their own voice. Tanya, aka Iron Angel on iVoice comes across another user called Adam who invites her to a private chat. Adam apparently is married and is a father to three kids. He shows signs of perversion and voyeurism and have cybered (cyber sex) quite a few times but his wife doesn’t mind even when she knows about his addiction. I don’t know why. Even his therapist knows about it but takes no step to stop him from his adventures. Tanya and Adam end up talking about the colours of underwear they wear, whether they wash hands after peeing, whether they sleep in PJs or sleep naked. I mean, girl you are talking to a virtual stranger and you haven’t even seen his face and you are already talking about penises, panties and thongs!! Like, seriously. I was exasperated at her common sense. He could have turned out to be an old pimp who doesn’t think twice before killing innocent girls. Anyways, coming to the second user Phantom; he is the lead male protagonist in this book. Aaron aka Phantom turns out to be an investment banker and is pretty civil when they first engage in conversation. He isn’t a creep like the two other users she had interacted previously. They almost talk everyday. As days pass, Tanya becomes more addicted to this app and starts to feel “soft” for Aaron. It’s trap. There’s always some people lurking in the background to pounce on when they are presented with opportunities. There’s one such person in this iVoice app too. He gains a large sum of money by selling of phone numbers and private images of the girls who uses this app. When Tanya comes to know about this and learns that Aaron is also linked with this whole ploy, she plots a revenge against them. The rest of the story follows Tanya in her revenge and whether she finds success in her plan. This book ends with a cliffhanger mode. The rest of the story will be in next trilogy set of the book.Language is simple crisp and lucid and has the ability to bring live the events narrated in the book. The characters are well developed and one can easily relate to their actions, reactions, mental agony, outbursts, etc. The only character that left me a bit confused was that of Tanya. The best part is that even the supporting characters are well- developed and merge smoothly into the story. You can easily relate to most of their actions, reactions and inner turmoil. However I would have loved to get to know what happen after BANG. BANG. who had shoot for that i have to wait for next book. While the first half is erotic thriller with cyber crime, the second half which is revenge.  Narration is done well. The author’s strongest point is plot with unique theme and warn the women of online world. One of the most important things that I noticed is how with few words, the author could not only just portrayed  the hazards of online world, the pain, joy and sorrows of the characters but she even manages to bring that out from the readers. Most victims of these crimes were teenage girls and women. There was a nefarious attempt to trap young girls to indulge in wrongdoing. The increase in number of mobile phones had also led to more number of cyber crimes. Crimes were also reported by misusing social networking websites on the internet. The writer’s words has the capacity to hold the reader till the last page. The book has been written well in accordance to real-life examples with realistic point of view.This is the debut novel of author but we don’t seriously feel as if we are reading a book written by a debut author. Overall a fantastic fantasy packed with action and tinged with suspicion and suspense. I personally would like recommend this book to every women out there and to all the book worms it’s a must read.Overall Ratings 4/5 StarsAbout the AuthorTaanya Sarma is an author, poet and an entrepreneur.

As their chemistry threatens to overwhelm them and Prisha is pulled deeper into the Seductive Affair, she must decide what matters most to her matters of the head or of the heart.My TakeStarting from the cover and title is enchanting. I expected it to be a dark romance thriller but it's a simple love story based on career and love. The title is misleading there is no seduction in the plot. The book is a bag of emotions, love, hate, relationship, passion, separation, trust, bond, joy, happiness, family, relationships, life, sadness, betrayal and many more. This is the story about main protagonist Prisha Khatri.

I have read the author's previous work i have much expectation from this book too but i'm disappointed this time. Plot becomes predictable sometimes. The story is faced. Narration was simple and okey. The characters are good but could not able to connect with them. A few typographical errors here and there need to be rectified. If the edit was done properly, the story would have sounded much much better.I'll recommend this book to beginners for a light read.  Overall Ratings 2/5 StarsGrab the book here- Amazon.in Amazon.com Amazon.co.ukAbout the AuthorRishabh Puri is a highly accomplished entrepreneur with a flair for writing.

Review of Wheels of Wish
 9 June 2018  

Title :Wheels of WishAuthor : Bibhu Datta RoutBlurb : Imprisonment of a couple in the Dwapar Yug and the creation of magnetism at Sun temple in Konark has a great deal of linkage to a missing boy in the 13th century carrying the mightiest power of the universe that transcends in time across generations leading to an alleged rape and murder accusation to the story's protagonist, an investment banker Shashank Chaudhary in 2008 who flies from New York to Odisha to find himself trapped in an 800 years old enigma. A biological allegory that unfolds a historical and mythological mystery that counts back in time as far as the epic Mahabharata. One that surpasses time and the material world with its mathematical calculations within physical elements. Unexplainable evidences, puzzling data, conspiracy theories and unheard secrets intermingle with one another to create plots in the history of time that have been startling scientists and mythologists to date. It's now in the court room that he must face his worst fears and probably the world's greatest held secret, a rare phenomenon of a chromosomal defect, from an unexpected guest.My View : The blurb of the book will definitely fill the curiosity in the reader’s mind. The lovely cover and the title Wheels of Wishes worked completely in grasping my attention making me more curios to unfold the story residing in the book.All the characters are portrayed beautifully; the author very well briefs about the characters at the beginning of the book but still a reader may get confuse as there are numerous characters dwelling in the story. The story is locked with a lot of drama having tints of history and mythology. The way author has painted the details of history is really commendable. Author must have done a lot of research in order to portray such details clearly in his book. Portraying such kind of stories requires knowledge and skills.The tagline on the cover of the book already suggest that the story holds a crime; author has crafted the story very well and the crime revolving around the other events having details of history lands the reader on a different node. The story goes on switching its way from past events to present. The book also contains the hues of love of Shashank and Roohani, murder mystery, rape case and lot more to locate. The writing style is simple which makes the reading journey easy for me. Articulation of the sentences could be much better which will help in attracting the reader’s mind. I found the narration of the story moderate which weakens the links between the reader and the story. Fascinating Read!Rating : 3.5/5Reviewer : Megha Biloniya

THE HISTORY OF DATA SCIENCE
 21 August 2019  
Art

IntroductionSo, the buzz is data science. We are now discussing everywhere there was a big hype in the media about the data science. If you look back sometimes early 2000 you could see people start talking about it regularly and frequently. However, it was originally presented back in the sixties in academia. In Sep 2012 data science has been awarded as “The Sexiest Job of the 21st Century” at Harvard Business Review, a prestigious and very popular magazine by Harvard Business School. Now you could imagine how it able to grab all recent attention and limelight.Now, what is data science?In short, a scientific way to look at, analyze data which in turn would open up a new dimension of available information. This is a sophisticated disciple requires statistical knowledge and computer programming skill. Data science is a complex disciplinary. Data science become a new and “sexist” profession in the world. Behind this success a long story there was the combination of the mature discipline of statistics on computer science and especially delegate a new phase that involved with a vast story of big data. A long history has been associated to make a sense of data science. It has been analyzed by a scientist, computer scientist, Liberian, statistician and other. The following information gives a brief idea about how the term data scienceevolved, related term and it’s used..Early daysData science has been formally introduced evolved to become the sexiest job in the world. There were several mathematicians, scientist and international organizations who played the key role directly or indirectly. Interestingly those contributions were not related to data science always, however, they have defined few building blocks which was very important for data science discipline.International Federation for Information Processing established in 1960 under UNESCO who set some key guideline and concept on data, how it should be processed and what standard should maintain. However it was not data science at all, but it defines a systematic way of data processing and presenting. Before those guidelines, there were data presentation or processing was limited to individual domain and used to be very difficult to interpret on the other domain. They first introduced a term Datalogy in 1968 to formalize this data analysis practice.John W. Tukey who was an American mathematician and famous for the development of FFT algorithm and box plot. He writes the book ‘The Future of Data Analysis’ in 1962. He first brought the idea of the relationship between the statistic and analysis or more preciously data analysis. Earlier data analysis used to consider as “applied” disciple of Statistics; which makes the scope very limited and scoped within the business area. In this book he writes:“For a long time, I have thought I was a statistician, interested in inferences from the particular to the general. But as I have watched mathematical statistics evolve, I have had cause to wonder and to doubt……………I have come to feel that my central interest is in data analysis, which I take to include, among other things: procedures for analyzing data, techniques for interpreting the results of such procedures, ways of planning the gathering of data to make its analysis easier……………….A large part of data analysis are inferential in the sample-to-population sense but these are only parts, not the whole… Data analysis is a larger and more varied field than inference, or incisive procedures, or allocation.”This book has been cited several times in many research paper as the formal introduction of data analysis outside Statistical disciple. At later stage researchers come up with several hypotheses to derived another dimension of the same data resulting in a better decision making.One important thing to notice Tukey was a Mathematician, not a Statistician; who blends statistical analysis and mathematics together to make data analysis more “scientific” and acceptable.In the year 1977 Tukey published his another major work: Exploratory Data Analysis. He bought another major idea on how “Explanatory” and “Confirmatory” data analysis should be done and he stressed upon “Side By Side” approach. That means we need the new or revised hypothesis to do this analysis side by side. But why this idea was so important? As mentioned before contemporary data analysis used to be a statistical disciple and limited to the specific domain. For example, a particular hypothesis may be useful to find out a type of health issues of the population but the same hypothesis might not be applicable to another area like identifying a quality of a particular corp.Another important name that came after Tukey is Peter Naur. In 1974 he published “Concise Survey of Computer Methods” in Sweden and The United States. The book is a collection of modern data processing method from various domain used worldwide in the verity of applications. Other important fundamental aspects of the book were data standard or guidelines defined by International Federation for Information Processing. Which makes those ideas more acceptable and interpretable with wide ranges of audiences. In fact, those ideas detailed in the book comes with a short survey or example data processing. In this book, he used the term “Data Science” several times. At the later stage, Naur produces the new or formal definition of data science. “The science that dealing with data, once they have been established, while the relation of the data to what they represent is delegated to other fields and sciences.” From this time the term ‘Data science’ is used very frequently. But it really took a long time to catch on. After his paper data science is pushed towards more and more.In 1977, The International Association for Statistical Computing (IASC) was originated. It is included as the sector of International Statistical Institute (ISI). The main aim of IASC is to connect and exchange statistical computing worldwide between statistician, computer professional, educational institute, researchers and government on various subject or domain. They start publishing a monthly journal named “Computational Statistics & Data Analysis”.

A press conference is convened to disclose the fact of its author. In addition, it will disclose the fact why the readers have been put in the dark so far in connection with the identity of the author. The MD of the Publication House is a young lady who narrates a story before introducing the author of the novel. The story begins with Bangala Sahib Gurudwara at Connaught Place, Delhi. It is 14th February, the Valentine Day. In the meantime, a boy falls fainted at the gate of Sacred Heart Church. Nobody but two attendants of the church, Mrs. David, and her blind granddaughter, bring him to the hospital for treatment. While the boy’s treatment is on, it is discovered that he has tried to commit suicide. The boy’s name is Samar. Samar is an orphan and in an orphanage, he was brought up under the tutelage of Mother Marry. Spring is his fast friend with whose help he succeeds in winning the heart of a voracious reader of novels, Sufi. The Author is the story of love, dreams, sacrifice and an unquenched thirst.

Pace is was slow. Narration was done well. I love the friendship and understanding between Samar and Spring.Ek jaddo jahad hui is jindagi se...jindagi ke khatirEk tarif hamne khud kee ki..ek jeet ki khatirEk sapne ko maine jinda rakha...jinda rahne ke khatirEk takraro hui sapnooo se...sapnooo ke khatirEk tohfa sapnaoo ne diya...apnoo ki khatirEk jaddo jahad hui is jindagi se...jindagi ke khatir.Every page is loaded with emotions and twists.
