Title: People by Raghu Rai Writer: Raghu Rai Publisher: Aleph Books Year: 2016 ISBN: 9789383064137 Rating: Read book reviews from other readers People by Raghu Rai is a book of portraits taken by the well-known photographer over the course of his career. According to Raghu Rai, these are his favourite portraits from amongst the ones he has photographed. Buy People by Raghu Rai online here. What I Liked, What I Didn't The cover image is arresting: Ustad Bismillah Khan meditating on his music. It is obvious that he has been caught mid-raag, at just the perfect moment. This photograph could not possibly have been 'planned'. A photograph that had to be snapped without warning, at that perfect moment when the musician, caught up in his music, completely unself-conscious, forgot that there was a photographer, an interloper, in his presence. The invisible photographer could capture a person in his most intimate, his most vulnerable moment. Of course it rarely works out that way. Rai himself writes in the introduction, "When I take a person's portrait, I am trying to capture the aura of that person". In People, Raghu Rai succeeds quite often; but not always. Take this picture, for instance….
The novel Creme Brulee will appeal to someone looking for a light romance, who is also familiar with the nuances of the Bengali upper-class scene. If you generally turn up your nose at chick-lit and romance, but are looking for some light reading, then you should definitely buy this one.

Think misty mountains. Think gentle small hillside towns. Think goats with tinkling bells around their necks. Think a delicious hint of danger from the natural world – leopards, for instance, after dark, or a ghostly figure half-glimpsed at dusk. Think Ruskin Bond, the grandfather that every Indian kid adopted as their very own. And guess what – today, May 19th, is Ruskin Bond’s birthday! 82 years young and going strong – why, we at IndiaBookStore have been seeing a new Ruskin Bond title on the online bookstands every couple of months! – Ruskin Bond remains an eternal favourite. It must be something to do with the man himself, the impression he leaves behind when we read him – a simple, nature-loving, modest, friendly man of generous spirit. So when Rupa Publications offered to give 3 of our readers a wonderful book bundle of 5 Ruskin Bond books to celebrate Ruskin Bond’s birthday, we were thrilled (and, admittedly, envious!) It didn’t need the added sweetener that one of the books would be autographed by The Bond himself! Go check it out for yourselves: The Ruskin Bond 5 Book Bundle Giveaway. Best of luck! Plus, if you’re a die-hard Bond fan, you…
