The series is about a secret society consisting of 7 members: Peter, Janet, Jack, Barbara, George, Pam and Collin. A dog named Scamper is always with them. The organisation’s prime aim is to solve cases regarding absolutely anything interesting! In this book, the Secret Seven are assigned duties to follow, shadow and characterize people by Peter, the leader. Trying to do the same, some members fall in serious trouble. Series of interesting events go on, which I would not prefer to reveal.
A mysterious person is followed, and the Secret Seven understand that he is responsible for the disappearance of many different types of dogs in the locality. They discover a secret coal-hole in a filthy, small area, and decide to explore it. As they explore the interior of the coal-hole, they discover many dogs moaning in despair.
Read this book to discover what happens next. Will they present freedom to all the groaning dogs, or will they entirely lose their own freedom. The language used is a bit different from many other novels, but is definetly a lot better than the language in which Gulliver’s Travels was written!
The main motto of writing this book is to enlighten the youth of India to transform their dreams into actions. This is my first A.P.J Abdul Kalam book and I look forward to read many more books of his. I sometimes feel that there is some change in my way of looking into things after I’ve read this book. What for are you all waiting? Go ahead and read the book to experience a lovely, motivational time.
Build your own perception on this story after going through the colourful paragraphs of this remarkable
piece of work.
Written by Charles Dickens, this book gives you a sensation of loneliness and despair around you, which is due to the writing style of the author. Although the book I have read is the abridged version, it still causes that feeling.
What is the most amazing thing about the Mahabharata, is that, it contains every thing that we come past in our lives. Nothing is left untold, neither drama is missing nor romance nor betrayal, nor jealousy, nor anything . The treasures of the Mahabharata do not limit to India only, but to all parts of the world. However, this fact cannot be denied that the unmatched epic has given a perennial source of spiritual strength to the people of India and is the main reason for some of the most heroic tasks done by them.
These are the words given out by the writer- “The realities of life are idealized by genius and given the form that makes drama, poetry or great prose. Since literature is closely related to life, so long as the human family is divided into nations, literature cannot escape the effects of such division. But the highest literature transcends regionalism and through it, when we are properly attuned, we realize the essential oneness of the human family. The Mahabharata is of this class.”
Books like The Mahabharata enhance human character and embed the best moral values in it. The victory of the Good over the Evil is prevalent in all sectors of life and a better perception of this stays behind, with you after reading the book.
The Pandavas become an ideal to all who read the book and so do the Kauravas, but there is a vast difference in their idealism. The poet, Vyasa through his narration shows you that the Pandavas did what we are expected to do and the Kauravas did everything that is not desired and is not expected to be done by anyone.
Retelling the story in such way that creates an interest in me, a person who dislikes any type of mythology, is truely where the author’s real skill lies in.
The richness of the Indian culture and traditions and the sweetness of a well civilized Indian life is wonderfully painted by the author.
To conclude- The Mahabharata is an evergreen classic whose truthfulness will never perish. Read this translated, retold version to obtain a better life and to learn to distinguish the good from bad. Let modern yet noble ideas come to you by reading this enchanting epic.
By now you might have guessed that, at that point of time I just fell in love with this book due to it’s short and sweet stories revolving around Mr Pink Whistle whom I consider a super hero even now.
The stories speak about Mr. Whistle, an imaginary character drawn by Enid Blyton, who intervenes into the lives of unfortunate children and changes them altogether. I know that the stories written by Enid Blyton will forever impress the tender minds of children and the biggest proof lying ahead me is myself.
Do read through this creative novel, all my dear readers to have a fun-filled experience and transform into a little kid again( only for those who are not kids anymore).
