Riding the Tech Tide

My journey with Meraki Post started on the day I met Veena for the first time in a boring cafeteria of Manyata Embassy Business Park (and got judged big time), back in 2015. One of my buddies had referred her to me, when she (Veena) had mentioned about “improving the look-and-feel” of her “book blog”. All this happened at a time when I was not serious about anything in life. And that day, I actually... continue reading→

Of Mice and Men

by John Steinbeck

Classics are one of the most difficult genres for me. Hence, I attempt to read at least two of those in a year, because, what’s life without a few challenges? I had heard so much about John Steinbeck that I bought a book by him (the name of which I don’t recall). Of mice and men was one title I had heard a lot about, so when I stumbled upon this particular edition of it,... continue reading→

Kashmir Diaries

My recent attempt to read a few books on Kashmir before my travel to Srinagar resulted in an awakening. I read extensively (or at least what time permitted). I started off with Behold, I Shine by Frenny Manecksha. It was an interesting read; however, I did not learn anything that I did not know already. I also felt that, since it was about the voices of women and children it did not distinguish between those... continue reading→

Silent Scream

by Angela Marsons

As a curator for a book subscription service, the biggest challenge I face is ensuring quality books in the box. There are hundreds and thousands of books out there and new ones release almost every day! We enlist many titles in our monthly previews and I attempt to read at least a few out of these lists, to maintain the quality of the books. Silent Scream was one title included in the box that was... continue reading→
