Scorpio Man Love, Lust, and ObsessionScorpio Man Love, Lust, and Obsession by Nikita Gharat
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I think she has described, the Scorpio man point blank. What I liked is the fact that she has elaborated the Scorpio stare.

She let's the girl in love with a Scorpio man distinguish between love and lust. It is true that Scorpio men are known for the loyalty but they can also be brutal heartbreakers. This book helps in finding out whether you are with a keeper or breaker. Also, there are additional chapters such as Scorpio man and eros signs, which help in knowing "what triggers the particular scorpio man".

The book has detailed insight, I loved reading it. Recommended for those in love with a Scorpio man and also for those who are Scorpio themselves.

3 Blasts Shatter Mumbai - The Old Games Begins Again

I received a call from my best friend. She was asking me how to go to Dadar by train. She was planning to go alone the next day. She belongs to such a family where little girls (like me) are protected and are usually made to travel by auto-rickshaw or car. Moreover, she has moved to Mumbai from Kolkata, just a year back that is why she has no idea how to travel by train. Therefore, like a good friend I told her not to travel alone. I gave her appropriate instructions and warned her once again, “Don’t travel alone, Mumbai is no longer safe! ” Those words seemed to be symbolic...  Read More

26/11: Have We Learnt Our Lesson? May be Not!

Today, two years have passed post 26/11 and we are where we were two years back. It is painful and it is frustrating that the biggest terror attacks did not teach us anything. Our chief minister forgot that the national anthem was playing and  that he was supposed to stand till it got over.  Two years back after the massacre ended; Vilasrao Deshmukh had gone to visit the Taj officially along with star son Riteish and director Ram Gopal Varma. This had cost him his post but Prithviraj Chavan has already replaced Adarsh Scam fame Ashok Chavan. So, with whom will the Congress replace Prithviraj Chavan? They are suffering from the lack of clean men, therefore, are in a big fix.  Two years back Pakistan was not accepting the hand of their pet Cobras namely: 1) the ISI and 2) LeT  in this gruesome massacre despite of repeated pleas from our country; Two years later they have still not accepted it. Two years back there was no security in the public places, two years later the situatio

Bomb Blast in Pune: Wake-up Chid and Get up Mr.Chavan

The controversy over the not so controversial film "My Name is Khan" had not ended when the new reason to blame each other has reached the door steps of Maharashtra. The on-going ego battle between the Shiv Sena and the state government resulted in deployment of the entire police force outside those theaters that were going to show MNIK. An average mumbaikar is not even concerned about this controversy, but the political parties had no other issues  or rather preferred not to discuss any other issues than the release of a film.  Some politicians are of the opinion that Pakistanis are good neighbours (even after 26/11?). True, we need to build a strong Indian sub-continent but what about LeT and ISI? SRK's unintentional and non-deliberate comments gave a reason for the political parties to show their power. Political parties got a deliberate reason to deliberate on non-issues. Whether they are the rulers or not, all political parties belong to the same gene pool. Why

One Year After 26/11 Mumbai Terror Attacks

Terrorists attacked the city of dreams, Mumbai on 26/11/2008 . Mumbai was known as a safe city and citizens had a notion that Kashmir was a soft target for the terrorist groups . However, on 26/11 Mumbai was also under flames. Terrorists ran amok on the roads of Mumbai spraying bullets and striking grenades on naive people with no allowance for the aged, in firm, women and children. The terrorists attacked the CST Railway station , two aristocratic five-star hotels Oberoi Trident , and the Taj Mahal Hotel , Jewish Centre “Chabad House ”. They did not abstain from attacking sickbays like Cama hospital as well. Terrorists arrived in the city via the sea route with hand grenades , automatic machine guns and large amount of explosives . The siege finished an excruciating three days later. The assaults were on both the innocent common man and the affluent class which was previously distant from the straight blows of such atrocious crimes.

Mumbai Votes Today: Unwilling to Forget 26/11

Mumbai the nerve center of India was caught off guard and tortured for 59 hours by the terrorists that came from Pakistan. The coast guards failed, the navy failed and most of all the Central UPA Government failed. This attack enraged the entire nation and the every metropolitan city showed solidarity with the weeping marine city. However, the government chose to turn a deaf ear and besides empty promises gave nothing to the citizens of the country. Mumbaikars took an oath to counter terrorism but there were politicians who mocked at the angry and sad people of the city as well. The citizens of Mumbai are famous for being rich, classy, educated, trendsetters, popular and for everything else but not for voting. Yet, today I saw a change as I witnessed the elite and the elitest people coming out to the polling booth. There was determination on their faces, determination to see a change. For five years, the country has been shattered by terrorism but this time Mumbaikars seem to ha
