1. The Gopi Diaries by Sudha Murty 

Told in Gopi’s voice, the first book begins with Gopi coming home and tells the story of how he settles down with his loving, human family. How Gopi sees the world around him and what he thinks of the people in his life give the story a truly unique flavour. Told in Sudha Murty’s inimitable style, these are books children and adults will treasure as the simple stories talk of basic values even when told from a dog’s perspective.

2. Tribulance and Triumph: The Modi Years by Rahul Agarwal and Bharathi Pradhan

Whether a modi-baiter or Modi bhakt (follower), there is consensus on one fact: that on 26 May 2014, he changed the face of India forever. Since Independence, India had not seen a prime Minister like Narendra Damodardas Modi – a worker so indefatigably driven that much before the completion of his first five years, he had impacted every individual, every institution, every Indian in one way or the other.

The politician, the leader, the orator and the ascetic committed to the idea of a new India, has been composed into a single frame by the authors for a comprehensive experience of a leader who makes compelling political history. With a collection of photographs that would be a reporter’s dream, turbulence & triumph: the Modi years, the definitive portrait of the prime Minister who inspires as much fan-frenzy as fear-fury, is engagingly insightful.

4.  Taboo by Nirmala Govindarajan

Erendira, the protagonist of this heart-rending tale of exploitation and the imagination of freedom is symbolic of the under-aged trafficking networks and its resilient survivors across India. In Taboo, metred into rhythm in her inimitable style, Nirmala plunges into the context of disturbing crime, trafficking and unfreedom. Flying high in the Himalayan ranges, weaving a trail through Coimbatore, Ooty, Chandigarh, Khandala and the shipping town of Alang, diving down to the southern-most tip of India and onwards to Sri Lanka, Erendira, through many languages and cultures unearths the forbidden identity of a sex worker on a footpath. Finally, you emerge questioning the intent of our society and political organizations to stop this and the utter disregard for such questions in our democracy.

5. Being Radha by Tripti Sharan

After Chitra Divakaruni's narration of the epics from the viewpoint of Sita and Draupadi and Kavita Kane's stories on the most underrated characters like Ahalya, Urmilla and Vrushali, here's another new voice in Indian mythology re-telling one of the greatest saga from the view of Radha. 

Was being Krishna’s love the only truth of Radha's existence? She was the balsakhi, who played with God. She would sing and dance with him, get torn by jealousy, fight with him and then make up passionately. The love of Radha-Krishna was immortal, yet they parted ways. Was theirs just another love story or was it about the devotee and the divine? Being Radha, beyond her love and his Leela is a contemporary rendition of the tale of a timeless Radha who is worshipped in temples but seldom understood. This is her voice, her story.
