A unique story of fictitious doors to delve into the themes of emigration and refugee problems. Very contemporary and thought provoking.

Amazing story of determination and never say die.
Why I am a Hindu by Shashi Tharoor
Hinduism vs Hindutva- what every Indian needs to read right now.
Vanara by Anand Neelakantan
No one knew the story of Bali in as much depth and detail before this book. Like before when he gave voice to Duryodhana and Raavana, Anand Neelkanthan marries mythology with contemporary politics.
