Sita: An Illustrated Retelling of the Ramayana

Book Title: Sita: An Illustrated Retelling of the Ramayana Author: Devdutt Pattanaik Approx Leisure Read Time: 300 – 340 min Review: For someone who has already read another book by the same author, it generally is quite difficult not to compare the two books.

Jaya: An Illustrated Retelling of the Mahabharata

Book Title: Jaya: An Illustrated Retelling of the Mahabharata Author: Devdutt Pattanaik Approx Leisure Read Time: 320 – 360 min Review:  Impressions first. Book’s cover is really eye catching.

Private India

Book Title: Private India Author: Ashwin Sanghi Approx Leisure Read Time: 280 – 320 min Review:  I have never read a Private’s series book before, so I accepted this book without any preconceived notions or expectations.
