ChickLit Plus Book Blitz: Are You There Krishna? By Rachel Khona

ChickLit Plus Book Blitz: Are You There Krishna? By Rachel Khona

About the Book Rachel knew even as a young child that she wasn’t like the rest of her Indian family. While her parents were plotting how she could make it into med school with her mediocre grades in chemistry and biology, she had other things on her mind, including such gems as: · Why can’t she go to the temple on her period? · Why don’t her Indian cousins like her? · Why was it OK to be sexualized at a beauty pageant but not for herself? · How can she straddle two cultures while retaining her sense of self? · Why are women considered sluts and men considered studs? · Why do people keep asking her if she was born in India? · Should she wax down there? · Why does she have crazy eyes? After leaving home, Rachel got high in Amsterdam, met her pop singer idol in a bathroom, argued with a ghost, and got lost in the Pyrenees. But that didn’t stop her from questioning while men still tell her to smile. ‘Are You There Krishna? It’s Me, Reshma. Or Rachel.

A silent tracker, this person was not. Beside him, Spot, named for the spot of black fur ringing his eye, pricked his ears and tilted his head to one side as he, too, listened and watched for their guest to appear. When they heard a muffled umph, followed by the crack of a branch, Isaac began to grow amused. Their visitor didn’t seem to be faring so well. He wasn’t surprised. That path was rarely used and notoriously overrun with hollyhocks, poison oak, and ivy. For some reason, wild rosebushes also ran rampant there. Though walking on the old path made for a pretty journey, it also was a somewhat dangerous one, too. Those bushes had a lot of thorns. Most everyone he knew chose to walk on the road instead. He was just wondering… Read more »

Title: THE SPIRIT OF LOVE Author: the spirit of love, known as glen Publisher: Aurora House Pages: 196 Genre: Spirituality/Poetry The Spirit of Love is a collection of short writings, poems and phrases written by a man who took himself into some of the darkest and most destructive depths that one can go with drug and alcohol addictions back in his early twenties.
