The Kidnapping

bookAuthor: Ruby Mohan
Publisher: Notion Press
Price: Rs 380

Youthful idealist Maithili Deshmukh is inspired by a book. She gets mixed up in the kidnapping of Virata Rai. Heir to the Rai billions, Virata is touted as India’s Most Desirable Man. He ranks second only to the scion of the political Gandhi family. As his rescuing angel, Maithili experiences heartbreak and disappointment. India’s Most Desirable Man is like a movie superstar. He hogs the media limelight without performing any action stunts.

Rajveer Singh, his scarred stepbrother or, Prithvi Singh, his bodyguard, show more hero potential, until a chilling twist of fate brings Virata and Maithili together again. This time she uses her intellect, her middle-class sensibilities and her heart to fight. But Virata is a shrewd, manipulative man who has more secrets up his sleeve than a magician. Now, their worlds are about to collide for the third time. This kidnapping might just even the score.

Crossing the Rubicon

bookAuthor: Swagatika Dash
Publisher: Notion Press
Price: Rs 125

This is a reckless ride into the star, a venture into a no man’s land. Some poems whisper the language of wind on grass and some about the shattered epiphany. While one points towards the withering Mona Lisa waiting in the corner, the other shows a series of oxidized dreams. These poems are a spiral staircase towards the dancing civilisation and marooned spring. They let nude mysteries retrace the divine and sing the psalm of lasting thrills, of fractured fidelity, and of decaying delicacy. Words are loaded with vision to look at the world, afresh. They interweave dope along with desire and lead the readers to oblivion.
