The book starts with the chapter entitled Satire, which, as the name suggests, comprises pointed attacks on the societal idiosyncrasies and hypocrisies, albeit mockingly. In the following chapter on Travel Locales, I have reviewed four disparate locations in India, attractive for their own unique appeals: Puducherry, Shillong, Auroville and Agartala.
Next is the chapter on Movie Reviews & More. In the past few years, Hindi Cinema or Bollywood has seen many huge revenue collectors competing with the creativities – I don’t think the creativities need to compete with anybody. Only one huge revenue collector Ek Tha Tiger finds place in my list of reviews. I don’t like publishing my frustrations; therefore, if I have written a negative review, the movie must be really pathetic: Love, Sex and Dhoka. Other movies reviewed: Satyagraha, Raanjhana, Table No. 21, OMG, Mod, Udaan and Welcome to Sajjanpur. Other than that I have also reviewed a website, Flattr.com, and an architectural structure, Antilla: the Residence of Ambanis, in this chapter.
Finally, the chapter on Book Reviews comprises my reviews of three books: Bhagwat Gita, Swaraj by Arvind Kejriwal, and An Ordinary Person’s Guide to Empire by Arundhati Roy.
This is a non-professional endeavor; therefore, you may be able to download it either free or for a small price, and the royalties, if any, accumulating where from will go in charity.
Enjoy Reading! Ankur Mutreja
We say Merry Christmas in our home and office, but we recognize that not everyone celebrates the same way. We hope whatever holiday you celebrate, you will enjoy it!
With that said, we have a number of selections in our holiday issue. LeRue Press, in October, November and December is releasing a number of new titles. It kept us hopping these last few months. Don’t miss our backlist titles too. They are still as good as ever.
We want to give thanks this holiday season to our veterans without whom we could not celebrate the freedom of the press and our many other freedoms in our world. We need to do our due diligence to keep those freedoms; Washington and power can get out of hand; it’s up to us, the people, to keep them in check.
Off my soapbox now, our 4th Annual Book Blast is November 16th. If you’re reading this after that date, don’t fret, we’ll have another one in 2014 in November. Sean Savoy will be in attendance. He has a great follow up to our September issue about Banned Books Week in this issue (p.4). Ken Roberts always keeps us up to date on the stock market. You can read his column on page 5.
Check out the upcoming workshops we’re presenting (p. 19) for consumers (automotive), business (motivational) and authors (all the how to’s you could need to know).
Read about books, music, movies, art and more in each issue of The LeRue Review.
Till next month...Keep reading and writing!
