BTW, I do not remember whether I told you that my husband and I recently moved to Southern Oregon, to be near our son, daughter-in-law, and our four-month-old granddaughter. Our other kids are in the Bay Area, which is about a five- or six-hour drive. We are loving the West Coast!

That looks like an interesting thriller based on Indian history of Maurya Empire but with some imagination added from the author. I like history as I think there is much history has to teach us. Alexander the Great never lost a battle, but he probably would have in India if he hadn’t turned back. He wanted to continue, but his soldiers refused. Across the Ganges River, there were 250,000 Indian soldiers waiting, dug in, with thousands of war elephants to kill Alexander’s army. Alexander pulls out of India after he loses support of his Army. It looks like Sanghi goes into that and rise of Chanakya. I will definitely read it!

Thank-you for the kind words! I just read a few of the reviews for “Far From the Tree” on Amazon. I see it has top-notch reviews. I will definitely put it on my to-read list. It seems to go into topics such as disabilities that many out there tend to steer clear of because they don’t feel comfortable thinking about people out there that may be dealing with such issues. I will check it out for sure!

I’m slowly starting to read more and more non-fiction books the last year or so. For some reason, I had been very used to reading fiction books over the years – mainly thrillers and adventures. They’re great for building imagination & thinking, but often there is much more practical knowledge & inspiration to gain from non-fiction books.

I try to keep myself busy through reading & writing as much as possible! This blog is because I truly enjoy writing. As for reading — I do all my reading on my cell-phone that I use a stand for as books are too tough to hold nowadays without my hands hurting. Anyways, it was great to hear from you!

-Harsh

Your blog is very impressive, and I really like your quotes about life!

I would like to recommend a non-fiction book, though I know you said you prefer fiction. It is “Far from the Tree” (the title should be italicized, but that is not an option here), by Andrew Solomon. It explores the lives of children who are very different from their parents, that is, apples who fall far from the tree. Each entity is described in a separate chapter, beginning with homosexuality, because the author himself is gay. There are chapters on those with autism, deafness, Down syndrome, dwarfism, schizophrenia, severe disabilities, and those who are transgender, to name a few. I read it soon after it was published, almost two years ago, but it has stayed with me, because it portrays in powerful ways the lives of those individuals and their families, and it greatly enhanced my understanding and compassion. It is quite long but well worth reading. I first heard about it on NPR and then read an excellent review about it in the New York Times.

Hope you are well. I am so glad you are doing so much reading and writing!

Marcie Kaminker
