3) “The Billionaire and the Monk” by Vibhor Kumar Singh

(Motivational Non-Fiction | Format: Paperback/Kindle | MRP: 212 INR)

BLURB: 'Are you happy?'
This seemingly straightforward question puts two men from opposite walks of life on a personal journey to find the true meaning of happiness. As their paths cross, the Billionaire who leads a life of luxury and the Monk who once believed in renunciation strike up an unlikely friendship, united by their common goal.
In the scenic city of Shangri-La, they soon discover that the greatest wisdom often lies in the simplest truths of life. Donning the roles of teacher and disciple by turns, the two friends show and learn from each other that happiness is in fact a state of mind. And seeking contentment on either end of the spectrum of human experience – be it asceticism or self-indulgence – is futile because joy exists in its purest form in the harmony between simplicity and ambition.
As it demystifies the elusive concept of happiness, this thought-provoking tale offers an answer to the oft-asked question: Can one truly be happy?

4) “Ruin of the Scarred” by Medha Nagur

(Historical Romance Fiction | Format: Paperback/Kindle | MRP: 247 INR)

BLURB: This is the first book in ‘Sting of Love’ series. Bidisha, a 17-year-old braveheart, has lived all her life in hiding since she is the daughter of the most wanted woman in Bishnupur. In the calm of the British Raj, Bidisha embarks on the quest to free her mother from the false accusation. But for that, she needs to challenge the royals who dare not stand against the British.
And when she enters the palace, she encounters the power-hungry Yuvaraja Trinabh and his twisted mother, the Rani Maa. Rani Maa despises her dutiful but meek step-son Yuvaraja Prabir and his hound Debesh Das, a Yodha who is his master’s protector. And so, she assigns Bidisha a job to spy. But hearts entwine, and love meddles their path in the most unpredictable and adventurous ways.
Furthermore, things become dicey when Bidisha slits off her lover’s thumb, the Yuvaraja himself. Her dream to live free becomes a farfetched nightmare as her hiding in the jungle is not an option anymore.
When the deadly romance and the moral complexity are only a superficial part of the deep-rooted dark conspiracy, will Bidisha survive her sinking ground? Will she emerge a warrior, save her own heart and win her love? Or, will she succumb to the royal politics, lose her mother and lose herself too?
