Sundari Venkatraman


Bharat is the elder of the Maheshwari twins. Being a super model, he travels from Jaipur to Mumbai to Delhi, modelling for high-end brands and playing show stopper during fashion shows. Clothes, jewellery, glares, briefs – you name it and Bharat Maheshwari models for it.

Sparks sizzle and they get together instantaneously. But things fall apart when Dia realises that Bharat is quite the Casanova and might not make for a life partner. She disappears from his life... surface again two years later, at no place other than his family’s drawing room in Jaipur. Will the Casanova turn a new leaf? Or will Dia have to play second, third or fourth fiddle to every gorgeous model who comes into his life?

About the author

Sundari Venkatraman is an indie author who has 16 titles to her name, all Top 100 Bestsellers on Amazon India, Amazon USA, Amazon UK, Amazon Canada and Amazon Australia in both romance as well as Asian Drama categories. Her latest hot romances have all been on #1Bestseller slot in Amazon India for over a month.

Even as a kid, Sundari absolutely loved the ‘lived happily ever after’ syndrome as she grew up reading all the fairy tales she could lay her hands on, Phantom comics, Mandrake comics and the like. It was always about good triumphing over evil and a happy end. 

Soon, into her teens, Sundari switched her attention from fairy tales to Mills & Boon. While she loved reading both of these, she kept visualising what would have happened if there were similar situations happening in India; to a local hero and heroine. Her imagination took flight and she always lived in a rosy cocoon of romance over the years. 

Then came the writing – a true bolt out of the blue! And Sundari Venkatraman has never looked back.

Book Review: half pants full pants by Anand Suspi

An adorable book!

The book takes you back into the past. The simplicity, the nostalgic moments and especially the colloquial usages eg, ‘without a paisa of doubt’, will win your heart. It sure takes you for a trip down the memory lane. 
The Spielberg's pet’s influence on the young narrator is hilarious. I am curious as to know how the boy did the bus, glass wall, and the bottle while doing a break dance(I am assuming those are some moves in break dance). Every innocent and adventurous moment left a smile on my lips.
A must read for the readers who love a trip down the memory lane into the innocent adventures of childhood. Every chapter is a fun adventure.
Every chapter is a delight, loved how the author brought in the innocent language of the child so realistically. My other two one in white and with a halo and one in black with her horns shining bright and I had a nostalgic adventure through the childhood again through new realms.
An absolute fun read!
Grab the book from Amazon USA, Amazon UK, Amazon India, Amazon Canada, Amazon Australia and check it out on Goodreads.

Half Pants Full Pants is a sort of childhood autobiography set in Shimoga of the 70s and 80s. Given the era and milieu that he grew up in, it carries a flavor similar to that of Malgudi Days. All the characters in the book are real and most of them are still in Shimoga, of course now in their mid-40s. Quite a few are from prominent families and are now active and important members of Shimoga. The book vividly captures the real childhood adventures of this generation of people in Shimoga. It’s a glorious reminiscence as well as a tribute to this wonderful town.

Book Review: Ponni’s Beloved - An English Translation Of Kalki Krishnamurthy's Ponniyin Selvan by Sumeetha Manikandan

A beautiful read: Ponni's Beloved

From the word go the story pans through the period of tenth century AD taking the reader through the time without a drop. The politics, the intrigue never seems to fade. A big note of thanks for Sumeetha Manikandan for giving the translation of one of the most celebrated Tamil works “Ponniyin Selvan” for a non-Tamil reader. The book leaves the era etched into the reader's mind. I am eagerly looking forward to picking the next of coming volumes.  The story panning through the Chola dynasty it has all the elements of an epic.
Every character has the universal appeal. The thirst for power, the extreme royalty, sheer attraction, the clever play of emotions, betrayal you name it and it is in there. A beautiful book indeed! Sumeetha Manikandan has done a very commendable job.  I have not read the original one but the beauty in the translation makes me wonder if a translated book is so beautiful what the original would be.
I and my other two in white and black enjoyed this reading session immensely.
Book Description:
Kalki Krishnamurthy’s Ponniyin Selvan is a masterpiece that has enthralled generations of Tamil readers. Many authors have written phenomenal books in Tamil literature after Kalki Krishnamurthy, but Ponniyin Selvan remains the most popular, widely-read novel. It has just the right mixture of all things that makes an epic – political intrigue, conspiracy, betrayal, huge dollops of romance, infidelity, seduction, passion, alluring women, unrequited love, sacrifice and pure love.
