"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Destined is a love story that reminds you of the power of love and why the world loves to read romance, why it is the largest selling genre and why love is not just for lovers but for family, friends and life itself. The author has balanced romance, family and duty in this beautiful book. Yes, beautiful on the inside and out – did you check out the cover?
In spite of a serious topic, that Rubina has brought out in the open the book is a light, flowy read. What plagues our society today - daughters looking after aged or sick parents and how they survive the taunts and discrimination compared to a boy. A love of a parent is unconditional but not so, for a daughter, she must fight for the right to serve and care for her parents. It is as if she marries and relinquishes her claim and love for her parents.
Esha is trying to fund her father’s cancer treatment but fails miserably. Relatives and friends are the first to bail as is her ‘childhood friend and fiancé’ - Ayush. Slowly she realises that she is on her own and asks her company for the loan. Then she finds Rohan, the CEO, drool-worthy, solid guy. Rohan has his own demons to fight but he stands tall around the trouble. Esha finds support and faith with him. The solution was quite simple with the company Esha works for steps in to help her but Rohan has some strings attached to it.
Then there are the fireworks and Rubina does not disappoint. She writes with heart and spunk, her words pulled me in from the first chapter itself and kept me rooting for Esha even though Rohan had my thoughts.
Zaira, the ex is the troublemaker, spewing taunt and innuendos by the minute and Ayush who was to be the golden boy, the best friend turns into a version of her. I thought they were planning it all together such were their negative thoughts. Even though Ayush is sorted out, I felt Zaira could be too. She got off quite lightly for troubling such kind souls.
I enjoyed the tight narration and fireworks between Rohan and Esha. The witty, spunky conversation between the two lights up many a page. Add to Esha’s father who is a ray of sunshine even though he is the suffering making him so adorable. Destined made me happy, made me smile and made me read more. I hope to read many more such books.
Destined is made for enjoying your time as you find a bit of spark, a touch of vulnerability and rocking chemistry within its pages.
Esha’s struggle to be strong as she stood by her father in his battle with cancer and the Deja vu she experiences is heart-wrenching. And trust me, I was so engrossed in her pain that I was shocked at my desire to hit Ayush.
Out of the blue came a marriage proposal, a contractual marriage for six months, meant to benefit her father’s treatment and to remove the complications in Rohan’s life. What they both didn’t see coming (to the delight of my two doppelgangers—the one in white with a halo on top of her head and the one in black with red horns) was the intense attraction between them.
The brewing friendship, companionship, intimacy, and finally love was perfect. Not even a second of dullness. The book holds you to Esha and Rohan’s romance till the end. I and my two doppelgangers loved the romance and their chemistry immensely. With her second novel, author Rubina Ramesh has made me eager to grab her next book.
Three stars for trying.
Its 2017 and a multimillionaire is not ready for a critical meeting with the Japanese. What happened to his team? Or is this a mom and pop shop?
