The Elephant Chaser's Daughter | Book Review


Dear readers, hope you must be reading something and many other things these days. The taste for fiction or nonfiction cannot be altered so easily. We have to make our own choices and stick to those. Nonetheless, we can surely offer our views on things to others and maybe that's a book! Today, I will be sharing my views on Shilpa Raj's debut book The Elephant Chaser's Daughter, which is a memoir. As you must have been aware by my previous report that the book was launched on 28 July (previous month) and since the launch, the book has been taken seriously by the readers across the nation. People have not only been reading but also throwing their reviews on social media and other platforms like Goodreads and Amazon. For the readers who haven't yet bought the book, I have to offer some facts which will tell why one should be reading the book and why Shilpa's book is a must read by all the means. 

LIVE: Supreme Court Verdict on triple talaq to come soon!



And the VICTORY is here! Triple talaq has gone! Supreme court passes the historical majority judgement and says that triple talaq is illegal and unconstitutional! Great day for Muslim women in India! 

Live: 
Temporary ban on triple talaq for six months by the CJI! We are yet to hear from other judges. Keep in sync for the updates.

The SC CJI has also directed the government to make laws in the parliament for ban on triple talaq. This is a huge win for the constitutional rights of the women. 

Triple Talaq might be breathing its last because very soon from now, the landmark verdict on Triple Talaq by the Honourable Supreme Court will be live for the world to see. Muslim women have been fighting this extraterrestrial curse since long in India and all could be better had Rajeev Gandhi not stagger en route his 'vote bank journey' but better late than never. While most of the Islamic nations have banned triple talaq, India, a 'secular' nation, hasn't done that yet. This time, the fight against triple talaq and for justice was full on as Muslim women came out of homes and demanded equal rights for them. During the vacation, Supreme Court decided to hear the case and everyone should know that who were defending the evil practice - Kapil Sibbal and in a shrouded attire, Salman Khurshid. They both were defending Triple Talaq in the Supreme Court and Sibbal even went to the extent to equating this practice with Shri Ram! Nothing could be more shameful than that! 

As the verdict would be pronounced on triple talaq anytime around 45 minutes from now, ILN will be live monitoring and update you on the same. Stay tuned and keep reading the blog on timely intervals. India wants freedom from orthodoxy now! Let's hope for the best! 

Colonel Purohit Gets Bail: 'Hindu Terror' Balloon to be BUSTED Soon!


The Supreme Court of India has granted bail to Lt Col Purohit today. Col Purohit is the same person who has to spend nine precious years of his life in jail bearing the stigma of being a 'Hindu Terrorist'. Purohit was (and will soon be once again) one of the most decorated officers in Indian Army with so many badges being donned by him on the shoulder in the form of stars and badges. However, things turned and twisted and 'commands' seem to have come from some other place rather than the high command of the army. Ironically, the person who was supposed to be investigating the case of extremism and working covertly, finds himself fabricated in some blast case and out of the blue appears the phrase 'Hindu Atankvad' and 'Saffron Terror' and just jolts the nation.

Can New India fight floods? If not, then it MUST learn!


Just like the perpetual saga of demons and fairies and angels which almost everyone in the childhood has to listen to, the flood in North Bihar is also never-ceasing. Be it the year of drought or the year of deluge, the villages and villagers in the North Bihar have to suffer the days of problems and havoc, without any doubt whatsoever! All the promises of water management and flood relief schemes are only meant to be implemented once the flood has hit and people have suffered. And this has been the situation since long - even before my birth and now more than 26 years on my back and God only knows how back before my birth the situations were like this. There is no shame admitting that India needs to learn water management from the countries like Japan which can manage even the disasters like Tsunami!

Toilet Ek Prem Katha Review


Why you MUST watch a movie today might have millions of answers but why you MUST watch the Akshay Kumar movie Toilet Ek Prem Katha today has only one solid answer - it is realistic unlike the movies which are just fancy-playing with the hearts which break and unbreak a thousand times in modern Indian movies! After Bahubali - the conclusion, Toilet Ek Prem Katha is the movie which could bring India together once again as it plays around an issue which is the need of the hour and we must come together and clean on that. Toilets are the need of the hour and this Akshay starred movie is the need of the cinema today to make people aware of the issue.

The Elephant Chaser's Daughter by Shilpa Raj Launches Tomorrow


Shilpa Raj's debut book, a memoir, The Elephant Chaser's Daughter, which has been in the buzz for sometimes now, is all set to be released on 28th of July 2017, which is tomorrow. Shilpa's memoir is said to be the documented history of her life until now as well as her family's struggles. The book has been receiving a general positive feedback from various people who practice literature - book critics, authors, scholars. Shilpa's memoir becomes even important because of her credentials - she is the first ever woman from a socially lower community to have written a memoir. She has used this opportunity to a great level by speaking on the important issues which connect with millions of people who live in India deprived of many facilities as well as 'basic human respect'.

Nitish returns to NDA: BJP makes one more state Congress-Mukt!


The new political equations in Bihar were made in a flash and the 'chemical bonding' did not spare any time for the pandits to think. They just did not see it coming and kept whining about the unfolding of events. Most of the pseudo-secular intellectuals are just withered right now because they lost a face on whom they could bet in 2019! On Twitter, the people who used to praise Nitish with folded hands are calling him 'Sanghi' and opportunist. Television personalities, liberals and intellectuals are confused on the moves (but dear people, this is what we call politics, isn't it?). However, no one is taking the fact in consideration that this natural alliance of BJP and JDU is the most beneficial for the people of Bihar and the development of Bihar today. This is after decades that Bihar is about to be launched in a phase where the central and the state governments are the same!
