Me and My Angels #UMeU

You bring fresh air in my life,

the air that I breath.

You fill my heart with love, 

the reason my heart beats.

You make me feel proud,

the achievements which you endowed.

You bring a ray of hope,

the hope that make this world a better place to lodge

You are love of my life, 

the love that makes me alive

You are the strength in my life, 

the strength that makes me shine. 

You are the dream of my life,

the dream that I see from my open eyes.

You are me and that's why now we are "WE"

But I know the day will come when you will wave me goodbye,

to have life of your own.

But I will always feel your presence in my heart,

as you were with me from the start.

Looking at your precious face,

I pray your life be touched with grace.

I thank angels from above and promise you unending "LOVE"

To LOVE of my life, my most precious gifts by god.

Love you angels

A&N

This poem is dedicated to my beautiful daughters.. I cannot imagine my life without them! Love them to Moon and back.

Faith and the Beloved by Kochery C Shibu Genre - Book Review



Book Name : Faith and the Beloved

Author :  Kochery C Shibu

Genre : Crime Fiction

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Kochery C Shibu , the best selling and award winning author of 'Men and Dreams in the Dhauladhar', graduated from the prestigious National Defence Academy, Khadakwasla, in 1981. He has served in the Indian Navy and commanded two warships. Post his retirement, he has executed hydroelectric projects in the Cauvery River basin in Sikkim. 'Faith and the Beloved' is his second book. 

ABOUT THE BOOK

A ferociously entertaining, sharply amusing, hard-hitting wow of a read. Faith and the Beloved is a story about love, lust, faith, thrill, mystery, crime and much more. You name it and it has it. The book revolves around three main characters Naithy Cherokil, is a rich and successful businesswomen who marries a model Tony D'souza who is much younger than her after the death of her husband Jiza in Mumbai terror attack. Alice Cherokil, an eighteen- year-old computer geek, daughter of Naithy, whose life falls apart when her mother met with an accident and slipped into coma. Alice is on run to solve web of mysteries and must outplay underworld to save her mother's life. And Prem Rolland, a Kalari exponent whose life revolves around his brother Arun. Things becomes bad when police kill Arun under mysterious circumstances. Things go awry when Prem get trapped while finding his brother's killers. This book talks about how the lives of these three main characters cross each other and how they retain their faith and protect their loved ones even by putting their own life in danger. Many of the characters in the book are inspired from those whom author has encountered during his extensive travels and probably that's the reason they look very relatable.

MY TAKE ON THE BOOK

This book is full of masala and have strong potential to be made into a Bollywood blockbuster. In fact, as this book is hugely entertaining and thrilling you might actually feel as though a blockbuster film is playing out in front for you, This book encompasses underworld, LTTE, ISISI, demonetization, terror attack and what not. First three chapters might confuse you as all the chapters are named after different characters in the book. So, you might wonder are these different stories but once you enter the fourth chapter your excitement will reach peek and you will start connecting the dots. It is a smart, fast-moving and riveting crime thriller. Make sure you set aside plenty of reading time as I didn't want to put this book down.
