It was one of the most shattering experiences in the author’s life when he had to perform the last rites of his mother, all clad in the PPE suit and barely out of his own quarantine. The day couldn’t feel more devastatingly haunting as on the same day a year earlier, the author’s father had passed away combating to his last battle of age-related ailments. The author was consoled in the fact that both his parents attained moksha as they had breathed their last in the holy city of Prayagraj. The book is based on the basic philosophy that all the experiences are preceded by the mind, having mind as their master, and created by the mind- The Buddha Life is full of vicissitudes. There are good times and there are misadventures, and only a person blessed with a robust mind and consciousness can grapple with the darker side with equipoise and lookout for luminosity.

5. “Love In Modern Times” by Nitish Raj

“Love In Modern Times” is a collection of 20 short stories that aim at deciphering the various aspects of romance and relationships through the reality check of modern romance. Love which has always been considered a solemn virtue has witnessed a lot of transformation in the age where digitization and globalization have overshadowed emotions. The stories provide an insight into the prevalent mindset and behavioral patterns of the young generations when it comes to matters of love and how demeaning the quintessence of the three highly auspicious and felicitous words ‘I Love You’ has become amongst the youngsters of today. The book portrays the degrading essence of these magical words among the teenagers, the fickle-minded approach of people, the impatient handling of situations, and random repentance over their hurried choices that emanate out of their self-created labyrinth of conundrums. All this is becoming deeply ingrained in the ethos of today’s youth. Aligning with this central theme, all the twenty stories in the book carry powerful messages for the young generation and depict how the emotional fallacies have polluted the mind of the love birds of today’s generation. This story collection certainly finds a place in this elite list for portraying the dark realities of the so-called love.
