My Heart Belongs to India By Joseph Hoskins Book Review.

The cover of this book was very pleasing, a foreigner holding our National Flag and saying his heart belongs to India definitely made me feel great. But is this book really as interesting as it’s title? Read my review below to know!

Blurb:

Joseph C. Hoskins grew up hearing stories about India from his father’s college roommate, who is affectionately known as “Uncle Sunil.” Uncle Sunil is from India. When Hoskins was a little kid, Uncle Sunil would regularly visit his home; Hoskins’s interest in India was SPIKED by Uncle Sunil’s stories of MAJESTIC Indian Tigers The LazyScoop Review:\nJoseph Hoskins had a desire to visit India since his childhood. After hearing amazing stories from uncle Sunil about India\’s culture, people and tradition, his desire had increased. What would happen when he finally visits India? \’My Heart Belongs to India\’ is true account of his experiences in India.\nJoseph Hoskins has described his experiences beautifully, right from his thoughts as an adolescent roaming the PRISTINE jungles of India, and the INFALLIABLE beauty of the GLORIOUS Taj Mahal. Hoskins desperately wanted to travel there but never thought he would have the chance. Until one day he did—and that trip became an unforgettable adventure.

Filled with surprising—and sometimes shocking—accounts, Hoskins’s book delves into his experiences as he meets the people of India and observes their culture. Yet beyond his immediate impressions, Hoskins also details India’s rich background throughout the narrative. For those interested in cultural heritage or world history, Hoskins calls attention to the myriad events that created the India he came to appreciate. This enjoyable memoir leaves no stone unturned, weaving together inspiring stories of the great inventors who ushered in modernity with Uncle Sunil’s thoughts on the differences between Indian and American relationships.

While detailing the incredible natural and manmade beauty of the country and its most significant landmarks, Hoskins also shares his observations of the poverty and income inequality gap in India. He unabashedly reveals a reality that many prefer to ignore—for better or for worse.

At its core, My Heart Belongs to India is a love song to this fascinating country and its compelling people.

The LazyScoop Review:

Joseph Hoskins had a desire to visit India since his childhood. After hearing amazing stories from uncle Sunil about India’s culture, people and tradition, his desire had increased. What would happen when he finally visits India? ‘My Heart Belongs to India’ is true account of his experiences in India.

Joseph Hoskins has described his experiences beautifully, right from his thoughts as an adolescent till his journey in India is over, it’s all described very well.

His narration flows smoothly and language is lucid too. It’s wonderful to read about India from his perception. I liked his Curiousity, I never thought that these type of questions would erupt in the minds of a tourist.

I also felt some of the answers given by Uncle Sunil are irrelevant now, since almost a decade has passed away and lot of things in India have changed for good.

The conversations between Joseph and Uncle Sunil were educative for me. I was surprised to know how much Joseph knew about India(Thanks to Uncle Sunil) e.g who were Mughuls, why was Taj Mahal Built, Babri Masjid, Caste System in India, British Colonization, etc.

The Author has narrated his thoughts, and reactions to Various situations which helps us getting connected to him.

Talking about the characters, Joseph Hoskins I felt was a great listener, curious- hungry for knowledge boy who wanted to know about everything. His humbleness is also evident in the book.

Uncle Sunil I felt was confusing! He was very nice to Joseph sometimes and sometimes quite rude. I hated reading his rant about Black People, which was totally wrong.

Katie seemed irritating and totally a spoilt brat.

I enjoyed Joseph’s encounter with Ravi, his GF and ‘Payel’ (One of the major reasons why Joseph’s Heart belongs to India!) The way it was narrated, I was totally hooked on to it and could relate to him somehow, as even I was quite shy like him in my teenage.

There were some funny moments which I enjoyed reading about, e.g Uncle Sunil’s prank call to Joseph’s father complaining about his rude behaviour, Imagining the writer dancing on Dhoom Machale around his mom.

What I didn’t like:

I found Uncle Sunil’s behaviour quite perplexing at times. e.g his sudden argument in the computer lab over national anthem was wierd.

His belittling Joseph sometimes, saying non sense about Black People all seemed vain and unneeeded. I found his character knowledgeable though.

I also don’t agree with Uncle Sunil’s opinion that Indian Culture is better than Western Culture. Indian Culture is rich and great, but I think every culture has positive and negatives both, you can’t belittle any culture of the world and glorify yours, we are no one to judge.

The LazyScoop Verdict:

‘My Heart Belongs to India’ takes you on a fun journey to India full of knowledgeable conversations, Crazy and funny situations! Most importantly, it let’s you see India from the eyes of a foreigner! I truly enjoyed reading this memoir by Mr. Joseph Hoskins and hope he visits India again soon.

By the way, there’s a guest appearance of a bollywood star in the book, which was awesome.

Turning 24!

Life is interesting, With each passing year it brings with it some wonderful experiences, some of which are experienced for the first time. And those experiences bring along with it some confusion as well as excitement! Here’s my friend Artee Malave, sharing in her own words, an incident which made a flood of questions and thoughts flow in her mind! Some questions every girl turning 24 has to face.

Yes, Turning 24 and preparing myself for the question “Beta, Shaadi kab kar rahi ho?”

Few days back I was having coffee while relaxing on my favourite  swing in the balcony & I heard my mom chatting with some random relative on phone. As soon as she hung up the phone, she ran to me and said “Guess what?” with a huge smile on her face. Seeing the blank expression on my face, she decided to finally tell me that “Mujhe(by that I mean me :D) rishta aaya hai.” For her it was moment of celebration & for me the coffee had suddenly started tasting more bitter! A little bit in trauma, those last words of mom kept repeating in my brain and that sudden realisation of growing up made me feel sick.

Mom later on was busy with her daily chores, I was still in the balcony trying to recover from the incident that has just happened. There were so many thoughts going on in my brain:

Oh my god! Marriage? What about my career!! I don’t even have my dream job yet…I will need few more years to settle down…I have never thought about the kind of guy I want to marry!

Deciding your life partner is a tough task. (I have been through some tough situations like deciding whether Oreo is better or Hide n Seek 😄 ). Lame jokes apart, being born and brought up with a family who gave me enough freedom, will I get the same freedom after marriage? Will I get to meet my friends after marriage too? Will he be okay with my male friends? Will he understand that my career is the most important thing in my life? Will he give me my space? Will he be able to handle my crazy mood swings? Will he understand that I can start dancing absolutely for no reason? ( this one was irrelevant, But I do start dancing when I am bored :D) And the questions poping up in my brain never stopped.

The girl who has been single for 23 years is always a bit confused about the kind of life partner she want, Whether she wants to be with a guy who is introvert or she wants to be with a guy who is extrovert, Whether a guy who stays calm in every situation or is super excited all the time. And, deciding this while offering a plate of samosa is the most difficult thing of all ( i.e Arrange marriage). Arrange marriage has always managed to scare the shit out of me. Everytime the people I know have got married, I always ask them how did they decide that this guy is the one, eveytime I got answers like “it just clicks” ( I wonder whether she married a human or a computer mouse) or “you just have this feeling that he is the one” (still searching …what exactly she meant.)

For me it was scary because I don’t understand how do people get married to the guy who they are not in love with!! Elder’s always say “U will eventually fall in love.” & I always argue “what if we don’t eventually fall in love?”, “what if we start hating each other?”, “what if he is not as interesting as I thought?” I never really got the answer for this questions. May be that’s why the divorce rate is increasing at such high pace. Back to the question, Meeting someone once (or may be twice or thrice) is not sufficient to decide whether you are going to spend rest of the life with this guy!! I know there are various articles on such topics “if guy has this 10 qualities marry him” but does this all really help? not to me atleast. This articles are based on generalisations but every person is different from other. And, my question remains still unanswered.

Evertime you come up with questions relating to Arrange marriage, people out there always suggest you to marry a guy who is rich or has his own flat. Really is having enough money sufficient to decide if He is the one? I always thought it in a different way, I think you should look for things that are going to stay permanent like his behaviour, the way he treats you, the sets of discipline he follows in his life because money is a temporary factor, its very important to know what kind of human being he is!!

Finally I would like to say Marry a guy Who learns with you, trusts you, encourages you and Respects you!!

P.S: –

Please don’t ask me where and how to find such a guy because I am still searching…

Keep Searching,

Artee Malave

Why so sexist? 

We can’t neglect the sexism which exists in the society today. Judging people based on their gender is one of the most distasteful and lame things you can do. No, not everyone does it. But there are many. Most of them are uneducated or have been raised with such pathetic thinking such as girls can do this, boys can do that…and so on. 

You may find many articles about feminism and ways of tackling sexism towards women. However, even men face such sexism and yet hardly people talk about it. For eg- From an early age men are told not to cry. “Crying is a trait of women.”

So today I thought about writing on this sensitive topic, which I don’t expect every person to understand. Only a few sensible people would agree upon that.

We human beings go through a number of emotions every day, some of them are sadness, anger, happiness, love etc and each of this emotion needs to be expressed properly to avoid emotional and mental instability, irrespective if you are a Girl, Boy or a Transgender

Anger is associated with sadness. When a person is hurt, he feels sad, and this emotion comes out with crying. When you tell a kid, he should not cry and be a man(because of your lame sexist thinking), every time the kid feels sad, instead of crying he curbs that emotion, and that emotion comes out in the form of Anger. Because emotions always come out, if not in present, in future for sure. And thus it continues forever, As the kid grows up he becomes more and more short tempered, he avoids crying, and even he starts believing that crying is a sign of weakness. He becomes short tempered because he can’t express his sadness the way it was meant to be- i.e crying. I am not talking about crying for every other small stuff, but yeah, if a boy cries for small reasons, even then he can’t be told to be a MAN. Because being a man has nothing to do with crying. Go and consult a physician if you are in doubt.  

Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Sanjay Dutt, etc we all have seen them cry, in the news reports on tv. 

Sanjay Dutt cried in the media when talking about his jail term. 

Salman Khan cried at Rajat Bharjatya’s funeral. He couldn’t hide his tears at Om Puri’s Funeral too.

Aamir has cried in every Satyamev Jayate episode, even the news channel played his videos of wiping tears during Bajrangi Bhaijaan premier. 

So is any of them less of a man? Go and ask their respective wives and kids. 
It’s not just me who thinks so. There are many who share similar thinking as mine. I found these brilliant pictures uploaded by facebook page- Inspirational Quotes. I saved all of them. I request you to read each one of them. 

” Men don’t love, they lust.”

“PINK? You are wearing pink! Sheeh. Ladki hai kya?”

“Gossiping is so girly!!”

“Be a man! Stop crying like a girl.”

“Mard ko darrd nahi hota?”

Not feeling pain is a dangerous disorder, called as Congenital insensitivity. If you are marrd, bang your head on a wall, if you don’t feel any pain, you are pretty much suffering from this disorder.

“A man should always pay for women.”

Why? Women don’t earn? Women are equally stable mentally, socially, financially as men are! 

“All men are the same.”

You see? All men have different body structures. Different faces. Different minds. Different upbringing. 

If all men are the same, why aren’t all men rich like Anil Ambani? Or why are they not terrorists like Osama? Coz every person is different, whether its a male or a female. 

And finally, the most important thing, there are too many perverts out there in the world. Men who stare women with lusty eyes, pass on cheap comments, harass them, etc. but it is also a fact that all men are not the same.
There are men who respect women, who are not afraid to show their emotions, who know that men, women and transgenders are Equal
So please, if you see someone in your family or friends repeating those male-female sexist clichés, mock them! Hope this article impacts the message it wants to convey on to your minds. Don’t be afraid to convey it to the sexists you see around. Thank you. 

Love,

New Book launch Alert: One Indian Girl By Chetan Bhagat! 


Chetan Bhagat has made so many people like me passionate about reading. His first book I read was 2 States, though I am not saying he writes something super great stuff, but you can’t deny the fact that pre-chetan Bhagat books, indian book sales were facing a down trend. You can give the credit to his marketing strategy, his writing skills, his imagination, or whataver, but its a fact that he is one of the top most writers in India and his books always reach the best seller benchmarks. Doesn’t matter how much scoopwhoop and other people criticize him, you can’t avoid reading his books, and even if you do, you’ll be watching a movie based on the book after a period of time.

Copyright- Chetan Bhagat

So, Chetan Bhagat, has written yet another book called – One Indian Girl, as we all know. As the title suggests, the book is written from a girl’s perspective. It’s the first time that Chetan Bhagat has written the story with female first person, it would be super interesting how he would’ve done that. It would be a successful attempt by him if the female readers identify themselves with the character. 

Here is the official teaser of the book-

https://youtu.be/0y6M_Y-nzK8

Here is the summary: 

Hi, I’m Radhika Mehta and I’m getting married this week.

I work at Goldman Sachs, an investment bank. Thank you for reading my story. However, let me warn you. You may not like much.

One, I make a lot of money.

Two, I have an opinion on everything.

Three, I have had a boyfriend before. OK, maybe two.

Now if I were a guy, you’d be cool with it. Since I am a girl, these things don’t make me likeable, do they?

Seems like the book is aimed at changing the way society looks at women. 

You can buy the book by clicking below and get a discount of ₹57. Amazon guarantees book delivery on the same day when the book is up for all India release i.e 1st Oct.

Click me to order ‘One Indian Girl’ by Chetan Bhagat for a special price of ₹119!

A New Book Launch To Look Out For! 

​In the past, I’ve reviewed two wonderful books by Shubha Vilas, Ramayana- The Game Of Life: Shattered Dreams: Part 2 and The Stolen Hope: Book 3. You can check out the reviews by clicking their names. The depth and details with which Shubha Vilas writes is terrific and recently I got an e-mail from him about a new launch of his book called ‘Open Eyed Meditation’ which surprisingly is NOT in line with Ramayana series this time. Though it’s definitely related to Mythology. He shared the book cover and summary of his new book, which I was too excited to share with you guys. 
Here is the exclusive look of the front and back cover:

Looks exciting, doesn’t it? As you can see the price of the book is kept ₹250 which is a good deal I think since the priceless values and fun shubha vilas books usually offer. Though if it is really worth the money, we’ll find it when I review it for you guys very soon.
Here is the exclusive Introduction straight from the book and Author’s pen: 

Meditation essentially means perceiving deeper truths from within. 
For those who thought that meditation is a closed- eyed phenomenon, I beg to differ. And offer them Open- eyed Meditations, a book that shows another perspective to meditation. 
When you are open to life, life opens up to you. The upper limit of your ability to learn is determined by the upper limit of your desire to learn. Nature is actually a school that happily teaches eager students the secret lessons of life. Open-eyed Meditations is a collection of thoughts about various aspects of life that is purely inspired by observing the world through the lenses of the Vedic epics. 
Each meditation in the book deals with a modern problem that each one of us encounters in life and is accompanied by profound insights to those situations through a story or a character from the ancient epics. 
Why ancient epics? The reason being that there is something attractive about the epics like the Mahabharata and the Ramayana that has kept them alive century after century. Beyond the storyline, something deeper is waiting to be discovered from these ancient texts. This book is an attempt to uncover the hidden layer of wealth that is cleverly packaged within the commonly known storylines. 
Albert Einstein said, ‘Life is like riding a bicycle; to keep the balance one has to keep moving.’ For most people, there is no time to stop to learn how to maintain good relationships, how to become effective leaders, how to manage complications in life, and so on and so forth. They are already on the bicycle of life and most of the times speedily trending downwards. In such a delicate situation any quick tip to help retain the balance is always welcome! 
Thus, Open-eyed Meditations is a distillation of ancient wisdom tips for modern lives; a unique self-help book wherein each meditation takes you on a journey to the past, bringing a secret herb to heal a problem of the present. 
Whether you are dealing with complex dynamics of relationships or solving an impossible crisis in your life or coming to terms with embarrassing failures or struggling with important decisions or dealing with any kind of addiction, this book offers valuable nuggets of wisdom and action point resources to deal with it all. 
Open-eyed Meditations is a by-product of reading thousands of wisdom books, learning from thousands of wise men and keenly observing thousands of life situations. It is replete with intellectually stimulating analogies and quotes that will stick in your mind long after you have put the book down. It’s definitely not a one-time read, but surely warrants a meditative one. Every meditation is independent and complete. These meditations will provoke you to think about life in ways you would have never thought of. 
Water is all over the air, but when air is subjected to the process of condensation, we get water. Similarly, ideas/ thoughts are all over, but when subjected to the process of contemplation, they become accessible to us. When a thought is held for a long duration of time and processed through the machinery of contemplation, then life sutras are produced. Open-eyed Meditations is a book of ‘thought sutras’ that can become ‘life sutras’. 

Read this book the way a cow eats grass while ruminating. Chew on every word carefully till you have milky lucidity that nourishes every aspect of your life. This book will help you learn the art of meditating with your eyes wide open as you keenly observe the world around you and allow it to enlighten you. 

Here are some of the reviews for this book from famous writers and personalities: 

Deep exploration, congent analysis, and lucid interpretation of stories from the Ramayana and the Mahabharata… This book should be on every bookshelf and in every home.

– CHRISTOPER C. DOYLE, author

Intuitive yet pragmatic, Open-eyed Mediations is a lucid and thoughtful window to mindfulness.

NAMITA GOKHALE, writer

A wonderful book that reveals many profound secrets through varied meditations, each of which can nurture a different aspect of your life.

ASHWIN SANGI, author

A unique approach to help us address issues and questions that we have in our life… useful and enlightening. Highly recommended.

ANIL VALLURI, PRESIDENT, SAARC & NetApp India

Shubha Vilas has extracted the knowledge of timeless epics, distilled the wisdom, and presented it in a contemporary form… a book you will want to read over again to absorb the brilliant learnings.

ABHISHEK KARANI, Director, The Free Press Journal

Open-eyed Meditations is a book for all moods and all seasons… these rare 64 gems talk to us, make us ponder, and goad us to accept…Read it and digest it for a better life!

My take on Tanmay Bhat’s snapchat video.

image

Well, the garma garam topic since 2 days is the snapchat video of Tanmay Bhat wherein he imitates Sachin’s voice with 3D mask and makes a debate between Lata Mangeshkar and him on the topic of, who is better batsman Virat or sachin?
When I saw the video, hearing the mimicry of sachin’s voice and Lata mangeshkar’s voice, I was laughing. Soon in few seconds, the line came up- ‘Lata di you are 5000 years old, so better you die. Even John Snow has died…etc.’ and I was like…Ohhh, that’s quite too much. Telling a legend to die is not at all funny. Especially such legends, because of whom the world respects India.

image

BUT,

The reaction which it has recieved, is in fact also quite bizzare like the jokes on Lata Mangeshkar. MNS people baning his future shows in Mumbai. Filing an FIR against him. I mean what the fuck!

Tanmay Bhat is no match to the legends whom he has made fun of in the video, so why are people taking him so seriously?????

Moreover, Lata Mangeshkar herself has said she doesn’t want to see the video. She just ignored it. Why can’t we too ignore it?

Its simple, if you like something, watch it and applause. If you don’t like something, ignore it. Or just don’t subscribe that snapchat ID or their youtube channel. Have they forced you to join?

Why Ban them???

There are so many important issues in the country which requires immediate action and even our attention as well, but nobody gives a fuck about it. Nobody cares about water problem people are facing, nobody cares about farmer’s problem. How to develop irrigation facilities this year? How to save more and more water? All this is ignored and topic of Tanmay Bhat’s snapchat is discussed as if there is nothing better to do.

How many channels have cared to talk on recent MAN KI BAAT by PM Modi ?? Have they even heard it?

image

Lata Mangeshkar and Sachin don’t care about the video. Why should we invest our valuable time in it?

And BY THE WAY,

There should not be any problem on him mimicing Sachin and Lata, many comedians in the past have done it in comedy shows. Even now they do it in Kapil sharma show. But yeah, they don’t abuse. Abusing has offended us, so just don’t watch the video. Don’t ban him. He has done very comical videos before(Except the Roast) which were loved by people, we should not simply ignore that.

image

People are tweeting against Tanmay Bhat because celebrities like Ritesh Deshmukh, Celina Jetley, etc have also tweeted against him. They are like, if celebrities are saying he is wrong, he MUST be wrong. Come on, you have your own brain, decide for yourself.

I am not at all supporting his video, I didn’t like the abusive part. But I am also not supporting the over-reaction his video has received. Media should focus on important topics in regards to country rather than showing tanmay’s stupid video again and again, and debating on it. And Banning, is never a solution, because then there would be no difference between India and Pakistan.

Think.
