How I taught my grandmother to read


Book Review~ Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki

Omg what book this was. Although I am not a big fan of self help books but in this book I have explored so many different aspects which I never did before.

The book mainly focus on financial education, personal finance, entrepreneurship which should teach to everyone so they can exactly know how money works.

In this book author was little boy and very curious to know how rich earn enough money so easily, so he and his friend Mike goes to mike’s dad for learning from him because he was a businessman. Whom author tell his rich dad and his real dad was poor dad for him.

His rich dad create so many situation for both of them to learn how to earn money and give lesson too.

There are some of my favourite lesson his rich dad given to him and Mike was

“Money is one form of power. But what is more powerful is financial education.”

“Money comes and goes, but if you have the education about how money works, you gain power over it and can begin building wealth.”

“People do two things. Some just let life push them around. Others get angry and push back.”

“Learn to use your emotions to think, not think with your emotions.”

“If you want to be rich, you need to be financially literate.”

“The one thing that holds all of us back is some degree of self-doubt.”

“Teaching was one of their ways of giving.”

The writing style of author was simple but efficiently capture reader attention.

The book does a fantastic job to teach about why financial education must learn to everyone. Initial chapters are so good to read and could have so many things to learnt from it.

Last chapters I have liked less because author focus too much on real estate business only, which could be difficult and complicated for investors in the beginning.

Author himself tell his book has best selling tag not best writing tag because I have seen alot of people around me who tell about this book but they are not applying those lesson in their life which was centre point of book.

I would recommend this book because it gives so many advice or lesson about money which generally people don’t give you within little piece of money.

Book Review~ The Secret Wish list by Preeti Shenoy

If I am right, this world have three types of reader. One who judges book by their cover, second who judges by their title and the last who judge book by their preface.

The first thing which attract my eyes towards book is their title, so somehow I come in second category.

Do tell me in the comment section what type of reader you are?

The book i have finished recently The secret wishlist by Preeti Shenoy disappointed all my expectations.

The secret wishlist was the story of Diksha who was not happy in her married life because her partner was not know how a growing relationship want attention so that love be remain forever.

In this story you will also see how sometimes parents does not handle situation wisely and make their children life miserable. (Happen specially with girl)

Whenever we read book we want to find the character who has similar characteristics with us so story could be more enjoyable for us but in this story I have not found any of character with whom I can relate.

As story go ahead I felt at some point Diksha was wrong too just like her husband.

The character I hate in this book,

Diksha’s mother in law because she never try to aware her son for consequences about not paying attention towards his family which was definitely needed, she was be sweetheart with her daughter in law that was good.

The character I love in this book,

Vibha who made her cousin aware to do something in her for herself but not support her in every decision that was the best I noticed in vibha’s character.

Why you should grab this book?

To know what secret wishes Diksha had and would she get fullfil all her wishes or not.

Book Review~ The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

The little prince will be the most favourite book of my 2019 read.

To be very honest I picked up this book because everyone in my friend circle recommended me to read it.

And I am glad that I read it. The little prince is the story about adventures of little prince and grown up pilot ( narrator of the story) whose plane was crashed in the Sahara (desert), far from inhabited region.

In the middle of desert where narrator was lost all hope to see someone, unexpectedly met a young prince. After long talk with him, narrator gets to know, he live in a small planet with his beautiful companion of rose, that he really cares about. This book greatly shows us human traits (affection, stubbornness, greediness).

Beyond all the adventures of young prince and all the troubles of narrator, this book enchants reader toward its, because the way things have been interpreted, how children speak out their thoughts honestly and exactly that is running in their mind, and questions they’ll repeat until they got answer.

The book beautifully shows the difference between adults and children’s way of perceiving things.

The language of book is relatively easy and illustrations help readers(children) to develop interest in the story, and every line of book leaves amazing impact on reader thought process.

This book should be read by everyone in every phrase of life because in every phrase the meaning of book will be change for you.

And at last it did well. One thing I haven’t liked in this book, whenever Avanti called Devrat… Puppy (it reminded me Dhadak movie famous dialogue…“Puppy, matlab kutte ka chhota bachcha?”)My Rating- ⭐⭐⭐💫/5

Book Review~ Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland written by Lewis Carroll

This was a story about Alice and her imagination. The Story starts where alice was sitting in the garden with her sister and her sister was reading a book but in that book didn’t had any picture. So Alice could not understand anything about that book and she was bored being solitude so she looked around her and found a white rabbit and started following it while running behind rabbit she fall in its bill.

After falling down in hole, she encountered with different things and characters. Like

Things – Butter, A bottle filled from lucid, Mushroom… They all were special because after eating or drinking any of these, Alice became high or low from her actual size.

Characters – Mouse, Caterpillar, Pig&Perrer, Cat Queen&King, Gryphon, Turtle, Lobster Quadrille and so on.

The Quote I liked in this book, that was

Oh, you can’t help that,” said the Cat: “we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.”

I really enjoyed the beginning of this book, but the middle part of the story was out of my understanding still I pretty much tried to understand it.

This book was full of illustration while reading this I felt the movie had made on this book, it’s visuals would have surely liked by audience.

This is short classic book, I will recommend you to read this if you have want to spare few hours from your day.
