Books & workshops
Merry Christmas to all and my Christmas gift for you is a recommendation of some unusual books to read inspired from the latest edition of Complete Wellbeing.
Asura: Tale of the Vanquished is a masterful rendition of Ramayana through Ravana’s perspective. Alternate history – the genre in which this book is classified – is about making us question the interpretation of history that has been fed to us. Asura offers amazing insights and it is incredible that this is the author Anand Neelakantan’s first book. Another book that seems worth reading is Hair Yoga: Caring for your hair right away by stylist Jawed Habib. The slim book is a storehouse of information on all that mane-ly matters. And the last on the must read book list is What are you Hungry for -The Solution to permanent Weight Loss, Well-Being and Lightness of Soul by Deepak Chopra. Deepak Chopra reveals answers to questions you would have never before conceived.
In the same magazine I discovered that Santosh Sivan is conducting Master Class/A Journey through Filmmaking in a 10-day workshop being conducted by internationally acclaimed cinematographer and filmmaker in Pondicherry between 3- 13January 2014.
