She is the orginal Desi Girl and her journey of love for family, love, career, friends, people around, world and most importantly herself shines through. She aptly named it Unfinished. She is one women who makes her presence felt and how! Thank you for sharing this in your voice Priyanka Chopra Jonas. Can't wait to see what's next for you. Always rooting for you!

it's not easy, but it's always possible!

Reading political memoirs can get a little overwhelming, but not this one. To listen to Barack Obama unbridged for 29+ hours was a treat. He describes the events with emotion, it feels as if you are in the Oval Office calling the shots. I am no expert to critique his presidency, but what I know is as a reader he lets you into his mind, he even leaves you with his dilemma at certain occassions.

Everyone dreams of a better world, without even mentioning he makes us think that the onus is on everyone, not just the government. We can do better. We are the change.

What a year 2020 has been, and I am grateful I decided to end the year with this book. The story warms you like a cup of hot choclate on a cold chilly evening. Addie Larue, is not just a tale of fiction, but is also a poem of love, life and everything we can make of it. Loved every word and the narration by Julia Whelan is enchanting.

We all have complicated lives, we carry a suitcase with us, instead of carrying the weight around, sometimes it's good to pause, open it and see if we can lighten the load. The book gives you scenarios, giving you the choice to decide through dialogue, not comparison, not judgement, and makes you fall in love with you, for you. It introduced me to the concept of therapy and helped me understand some of the many dilemmas I have every day. The narration makes you feel like you are in therapy, I teared up many places, as I had my realisations. The writing is on point, the descriptions enough to give you what you should take away from each encounter. Everybody needs somebody, and in this time of uncertainty, if you are feeling alone, maybe you should start by giving this book a listen. You'll find a way to love the world a little more.

Many tales, one juncture

Nobody is born strong, they find their strength through their life course, take decisions, or are forced into making one, with coflicting dilemmas in their head. They learn, fail, raise, fight, succumb, love, cheat, speak, express, achieve, choose, it's not restricted to gender, but being human. We need a voice, and Bernardino Evaristo does a spectacular job of weaving 12 diffrent voices, from 12 diffrent backgrounds into one common narrative. Loved it, a masterpiece and i couldn't have thought of any other book other than this to win the prestigious Booker Prize last year! Read it, to embrace your vulnerability and find your person.

The book is gold for productivity, ideas, life, failures, wins, success, you name it and it has it covered. You need to ask the question for you to take away. And this book even gives you a little on the kind of questions to ask. Loved it. Tim Ferriss, you have changed a life. Thank you. This is not a book for one time consumption. It's a tool you have to use to sharpen your life. The more you use the more pointed your life gets. I planning to use it in a similar profession. The journey has not ended, it has just begun.

Eckhart Tolle wisdom and perspective is eye opening. He narration simple, and hits a direct chord. I'll come back to the book again, because you can't take it all at once. The book is comforting and gives you hope to live a new life. No confusion, no chaos, no drama, it acts as a mirror, to reflect your true nature. There's more to learn, I'll come back to it soon.

This book redefines life. The rule is that there's no rule to living. Glennon, thank you for your no filter candid vulnerability. Through your stories, I found a piece of me. Each story comforts and uplifts your soul. It talks to the arrogant, wild, timid, naive, anxious, shameful, loving, caring, angry, stupid, crazy me. This book for me in your words is - "Love in, Love out". Thank you for telling us that we are Cheethas of the wild. This book is my key to know who I am.

Elizabeth Strout has inexplicably put together a story so complex, yet so simple. The life we lead, and how latter we ponder over the little things. There is so much to learn from Olive, her love for foe love, her curiosity (which can be a little nosy), her attitude towards life on the whole. What piqued my interest, was her ability to bounce back from loss, her reasoning about different situations, and her openess to accept. The book is just not about Olive but about all the old people in the neighborhood and their moments of introspection on the life they led. We all have the same ending, yet our lives are so vivid and different. the questions we forget in our busy lives are the ones we think we should have early on. I am take back so much from this labour of love, a feeling, the love, the joy and the hope that we seldom notice. This book of love will put you in touch with a part of you that is burried, and will surface an appreciation for people you may think you never had.

Gabby is a genious, she beautifully distils human nature and presents it in a way a child can understand. We are all wired the same and have the same access to universe. Why is it some thrive and some don't. It's because some have the password that is love and appreciation. The chapters in the book flow into each other explaining the power of trust, surrender, and appreciation. We knew the universe had your back, but this one gives you a deeper meaning of how the universe is working to help you to get to your highest self. During my listen (Gabby's narration speaks to your soul), I asked and universe answered. It was beautiful to know a light that connects to a light. To know that you are guided and never alone. The book introduces you to the meta physical world and I was awakened. Thank you for empowering us Gabby to know and be a Super Attractor. You are creating a universe with in a universe. Love.
