The Mystic of Twin-Flame Relationship- Book Review

​Title: The Mystic of Twin-Flame Relationship

Author: Manjit Sargam Chawla

Publisher: Educreation Publishing

The book solely talks about the concept of soul mates and twin flames and the ways of their recognition. Author has related the journey of self discovery and love through search of one’s soul mate and twin flame. And narrated the difference between the both terms. The best thing about the book being, it doesn’t follow any particular religion but depends on spirituality and divinity. I love the way author has quoted the quotes from different authors according to the context.

According to the book, twin flames are the mirror souls and refection to other related soul. It has referred there maybe different soul mates of one person and twin flames and soul mates are different things. It gives a deep insight of synchronicity, different frequency  vibrations that helps us in recognizing things, and The explanations are beautiful though except at some topics, I felt some contexts baseless and long descriptions.

The writing style is simple and understandable that makes the book relatable. Emphasizing on the importance of unconditional love, the book helps in being a good human and promotes humanity and trusting almighty, it supports being an active part of this universe through loving and caring. It’s a short read with deep insights.

Nothing Lasts Forever by Sidney Sheldon- Book Review

Hello everyone!

So here I am back with a book review that I read about a week ago but I haven’t been able to review it due to my current depressing state. But I would like to thank all who appeared with such generous and helpful comments on my last post and showed faith in me, ensured me, I’d be fine. And today, I finally wrote the review. Thank you so much everyone. It means a lot to me. I didn’t know I have so many caring people on my WordPress family. Lots of love to all of you.

Title: Nothing Lasts Forever

Author: Sidney Sheldon

Genre: Crime Medical Thriller

Publisher: William Morrow and Company

Publication Date: 1994

Nothing Lasts Forever is an American based crime medical novel that revolves around the life of three young women doctors, Paige Taylor, Kat Hunter, and Honey Taft, in Embarcadero Hospital in San Francisco. The book acquaints readers with the dominance of male doctors over women doctors in 20th century era. Besides that, it is a wondrous melange showcasing surgical operations, love affairs, murder trials and mysteries.

Sheldon has also highlighted the much debatable topic  of “Euthanasia” which is the practice of killing or permitting the death of hopeless patient suffering from an incurable and painful disease or in an irreversible coma. Dr. Paige comes into account with treatment of such patient who demands her to kill him due to his incurable suffering because of which she falls into a situation of Murder trial and been seen as a criminal.

Meanwhile, Dr. Kat, who has vowed to never see a Man due to her horrible memories of past sexual  exploitation falls in love with a treacherous male doctor who murders her eventually. Dr. Hunter who is not so good in medical studies has to search and learn other ways to charm people and survive in Hospital.

As a quote of the book says,

“You know, it’s not fair. Women are judged inferior until we prove ourselves, and men are judged superior until they prove what assholes they are”.

 

Sheldon has described how female doctors are seen as filth and only as sex objects despite being doctors.

From the starting to end, the book moves with an interesting pace, how Dr. Paige and Dr. Hunter solves the mystery of finding Kat’s murderer, the investigations and all are described in a manner that deeply involve the readers. And the murder trial of Paige, I say, seemed to be the most interesting part of the book.

It’s a great read with a beautiful writing style and well defined plots. Since it’s a medical thriller and has a hospital background, it is engrossed with the minute details of diseases, operations and treatments. It made me know, how hard and risky doctors’ lives are. While reading the book, I regretted to never have been read Sheldon’s works before. Surely, I am going to read his other works. Among all, I was more inclined with the Dr. Paige Taylor. Though I loved Kat too, I didn’t like her being dead at the end though it was part of the story line, I expected the end to be a bit better. Other than that, book follows the title, “Nothing Lasts Forever” that touched my heart and made me shed few tears. Because at last, things, relationships, joys and sorrows, people and life, Nothing lasts forever.

I’d love to share a beautiful quote from the book,

“You have two choices. You can keep running and hiding and blaming the world for your problems, or you can stand up for yourself and decide to be somebody important” 

My ratings: 4.5/5

Melancholy (Fiction) 

​She kept sobbing, shivering, whimpering hard that night. The night, emotions and her life brought her such melancholy that she couldn’t cease herself shedding those piquant tears filled with ineffable dolor and wretchedness. The darkness witnessed her barefaced pain, the quiet walls of room observed her numb state and the fan hung on ceiling examined silently her helplessness. Tears and blatant tears! A sudden memory struck her, how the person who gifted her those tears shamelessly used to hate her grieving at a time. How a single drop of her tears could pierce his heart as a serrated blade of knife does, leaving him shattered. And then reminiscing this, she wiped all of them in a stroke, swallowed the misery and slept.

I’ll move on

It’s a tough phase and I know I’ll move on. 

Sometimes, life presents you such situation it becomes difficult to tackle. Nowadays, I am in such phase. I am broken. I’m hurt. I can’t smile on days. I can’t sleep in nights. I can’t narrate my emotions to someone and thus, writing is the only nepenthe. I sit in my room pondering things and circumstances. And I know, time heals almost everything. These days, I am annoyed by little of the little things, either it be anything. I don’t feel good talking to anyone. Maybe that’s why I suffered panic attack a day ago. I have also taken a break from all social medias, Facebook, instagram and whatsapp, I just can’t tolerate all of this. And it’s really a relief, this hiatus. Since this blog means a lot to me, it is kind of a healer where I can express almost any kind of thing, so I am just writing here to vent it out. Writing keeps me alive, no doubt. I hope you guys don’t mind reading it. I needed it. Sorry to bother you guys.

Love you all.
