In 2011, The Immortals of Meluha was a breath of fresh air for Indian publishing – not only a fantasy of epic proportions, but a reinvention of the story of Shiva. Inspired by roots both mythological and historical, this trilogy envisions Shiva as a man whose legend made him a god, but the narrative never once forgets that he is human, struggling with his prophesised destiny. Fantasy readers and mythology buffs looking for something different will delight in these books, which will undoubtedly leave them looking for more.
Aincrad(Sword Art Online)
Aincrad – “an impossibly huge castle of rock and iron, floating in an endless expanse of sky.” Made of one hundred floors stacked above one another, this castle contains multiples of villages, towns, forests, lakes... anything you might find in the real world. It is also the entire setting for Sword Art Online, a VRMMORPG that allowed complete immersion into the game’s world. But when it finally went live, the gamers realised that SOA’s most distinguishing feature may not be its best – it lacks a log-out button. Trapped in Aincrad, these players are told that they needed to conquer all of its one hundred floors in order to be released from the game. For Kirito, a self-proclaimed anti-social gamer who preferred to venture solo, life in Aincrad offers a certain irony, as he finally forges bonds with others in-game.

literature The Rise and Fall of Great Powers
Tom Rachman’s follow-up to his best-selling debut The Imperfectionists is a brilliant, intricately woven novel. Tooly Zylberberg, owner of a bookshop in the Welsh countryside, spent most of her life reading. Yet there’s one tale that never made sense: her own life. When she was little, she was taken away to Asia, Europe, and America for many years by various people. But who were the people that brought her up? And what ever happened to them? She preferred not to mention the strange events of her youth, even as they still worried her. However, an unexpected message from an ex-boyfriend prompted her to trace her life’s unusual trajectory, and her secrets are gradually revealed. The Rise and Fall of Great Powers is a beautifully written and profoundly sad story about how the lives we lead can be indecipherable even to ourselves, and of the unexpected connections and revelations that changes everything.
political science The Tragedy of Great Power Politics
John J. Mearsheimer
The Tragedy of Great Power Politics is a book by American scholar and University of Chicago professor John J. Mearsheimer on international relations theory. Even though it is a formidable subject, this updated edition of the classic treatise on the behaviour of great powers is presented in an organized and easy-to-read format. Historical evidence from the French Revolution to the present day, are used to support his systematic analysis of power. Although written more than a decade ago, many of the subjects that he touches on are still relevant to the present political struggle between superpowers, especially of America and China. Perhaps many political science aficionados and scholars may nod in agreement with the content of this book, but for those who do not, it will sure provoke debate and produce further academic opinions. Either way, it is an important book.
