I was unable to attend the book launch of Faaltugiri due to work commitments and when Janhavi asked me to do a Memoirs workshop with her, I first asked her to send me the book before I agree for the workshop. I received a book specially signed for DiaryOfAnInsaneWriter and I must say, when I started reading, I just couldn't stop! Read on to know why this book is a must-read.
A rare collection of 135 best Rajasthani/Marwadi wedding songs. While you were wondering how and where would you get the best Rajasthani wedding songs, 86 year old grandmother, Banarasi Devi Sagarmal Jangid was secretly wishing that the songs she knew, would remain here even after she was gone. Banarasi Devi shared her concerns with her distant relative, Pushpa Bhavani Shankar Jangid. Pushpa took up the mantle of sitting at her buaji's feet and writing down each wedding song while Banarasi Devi passionately narrated them.
The writing is contemporary & easy to understand for the millennial. The best part about Piyusha's writing is that she ensures that the line of thought changes every few sentences & thus keeps the reader engaged. Despite not having descriptive passages in the stories, her play of words allows the reader to be transformed in the exact setting where the author wants us to be. I LOVED the fact that none of the stories come under a "GENRE". They are what they are meant to be: Stories - meant to entertain & leave the reader with a thought. Published by Readomania, the book is prized at a humble Rs. 49. It gives the reader complete, edge of the seat entertainment.
