Book Review:

An Air Force officer who upholds the nation’s dignity, a sister who gives up her life to care for her younger sibling, a bureaucrat who pays with his life for upholding the nation’s values, a father who rises above personal grief… Only One Life to Give is a collection of stories of such individuals who live by the values of compassion, honesty and dignity.

My Review:

I started reading the Book without much expectations. But started developing a liking towards it. It is a collection of stories, filled with various emotions. It makes one cry and laugh, at times think how hard life if for our men. Language was Simple yet formal.( May be because its written by wing commander). I felt it was like another Chickens Soup. Small book, easy read while travelling, can be read in parts. The Book is dived into 4 parts. Professional, life, His family and stories from other people. Goodness of the writing style is, you can easy visualize the life of the person. Every story has a lesson to be learnt from. TI cover various topics from a flowering garden, strict supervisor to corruption . Over all it’s a nice read.

I welcome you here! My blog is primarily a blank paper with chronicles of my everyday thoughts and happenings around me spilling like colours. It has various hues, bright, cheerful at times dark episodes of my life. I like to speak a lot and tell stories, but rarely find patient listeners. So, here I am venting out, everything crossing my mind. it is also a record book of my little Barbie’s antics and growth. It is just not about the baby ,but also helps me to keep track of fights and special moments with husband, in-laws and friends. I am an Architect by profession working for an Govt. away from husband because of job location. I love writing, painting, reading and cooking (occasionally).I like roaming around and window shopping. But, now unable to move even an inch outside, because of my daughter. I am originally from Andhrapradesh and have lived in Tamilnadu for 25 years and now back in Andhra. So you will find mix of words from both the languages and me trying to settle down in this new place. Thanks for stopping by. I would love to hear from you. Please email me at
