The speaking stone by Ratnadip Acharya "Can a piece of stone reveal a great story buried in the heart of a forgotten history??" Saikat comes across a stone that ages back centuries. Intrigued by the history that this stone seems to carry, Saikat goes on a journey to find unreveal the story of the stone. He meets Shuvasini who is doing her PhD in history and joins Saikat in his quest.
The story is narrated from multiple point of views. While on one hand the story is about the journey that Saikat and Shuvasini are experiencing, on other hand the parallely the second story is based in 20th century based in the mystical land of Tripura.
I like how the author has connected both the stories and how the storyline proceeds. However while the character of Shuvasini starts off very well, I was disappointed with how little she contributes to the story. A very strong female character could have been built which the author failed to do. On the other hand, kudos to the research work that the author has done and portrayed in the story.
Nobody wants to be alone. We are human beings. And being humans, we are wired to be social.
However, the fact is that you can’t always be around people. There are times when you need to be all by yourself and reflect on your life or just enjoy your alone time.

The gem of Uttarakhand - Nainital is a charming hill station that sits prettily at the green foothills of the Kumaon ranges in the Himalayas. Located at an elevation of around 1938 metres, the epicentre of the town’s popularity and beauty lies within the gorgeous Naini Lake, after which the town is named. Founded by the British due to its resemblance to the Cumbrian Lake district, Nainital brims with elegant colonial structures that amplify the beauty of this place. It is a perfect weekend getaway from the Indian capital of Delhi.
