My POV :

Best thing about a book-  It gives you the freedom of your imagination, you can give faces of your choice to the characters. You are not told what to see, You see what you want to see.
Best thing about a Photo-Fiction book- It still gives you the freedom of much needed imagination, you can still see what you want to see but additional perk is the provision of Photos which makes your journey with the story much pleasant. You feel more connected with the story.

I received 'THE STOPOVER' first-of-its-kind Photo Fiction book Sample chapter of story “The Tibetan Wheel of Wisdom”- One of the four stories (Courtesy Ms. Deepa Pinto).

The first picture, of buddhist monk in red robe looking over the beautiful mountains and Green and muddy plains....
After a long exhausting day, that picture was like a salve for my eyes, so soothing and fresh that I kept staring at it, noticing the details for ... umm... an hour or few minutes I couldn't tell.Then I remembered, Oh it's a book, and I turned the page and begin the story (sample read).

What I love instantly is the writing style and the word play. The blend of photos with the journey of
Varun is very interesting. The concept 'photo-fiction-book' is unique and is working perfectly. I found myself feeling the emotions of Varun, story is quite spellbinding.

If you have already visited Leh then you'll be seeing it again from Varun's eyes, If not then don't you worry, you don't have to book your ticket to Leh, all you have to do is get your copy of 'THE STOPOVER' and let it take you to the B-E-Utiful mountains and plains of Leh and the alluring photographs are like the cherry on top.
All I can say is if I am so 
transfixed by the sample copy then you can understand what the original full book holds. I can't wait to get my hands on this one.

My Photo

I like to keep things Sweet & Tangy sometimes bitter & strong, I write when words rhymes with my emotions. I firmly believe that the pen is mightier than the sword and can make a change in the society ergo my words always aim for that.

An engineer who is occasionally published in Newspapers (INT) and anthologies, curious soul that is eternally filling the bucket of knowledge. Bibliophile who loves reading all the time. An ordinary girl that loves science and art, blogging, different languages, fancy cooking, travelling and flying (hopefully someday with real wings). Believes in humanity & spreading smiles.
