The Bali Bible : Akshat Jain says “Having heard so much about Bali, I had huge expectations from this popular island. I feared that I may have raised my hopes too high and that it may not be as awesome as expected. My anxiety was put to rest as soon as our flight landed in Denpasar, the capital of Bali. The airport's design is inspired by Balinese architecture and one can see gorgeous looking temple doors at the arrival and departure terminals. From the start to the end of my trip, the whole experience was a fairy tale. This “Paradise Island” offers a magnificent and visible blend of art, culture, spirituality, blue waters, volcanoes and immensely lovable people”.

Shelf Indulgence with Shivangi Sharma : Shivangi Sharma's book 'I made a booboo' is a hilarious and heartwarming account of her own experiences as a first time mother. The book captures all the moods and hues of a modern day woman having and raising a baby in a nuclear family; and the trials, tribulations and occasional triumphs she goes through while doing that. Neither a guidebook on child birth or parenting, nor a collection of baby's growth milestones - the book is centered around the mother - her thoughts, observations, realizations and goof ups.
