The Buried Soul Of Calcutta

December 17, 2018 No Comments

Warnings were plenty when people became aware of my trip to Calcutta. I got vivid descriptions of the city’s dirtiness, its weather, its dilapidation.

The autumn leaves waltz to the strains of the night, The aging woods murmur with stories untold. As the city shakes the last vestiges of daylight, I linger on the benches like a wraith of the old. A silent sentinel, each night I scry The trickle of humans who pass me by; The whispers of their […]

World war 2 Historical Fiction book recommendations

December 17, 2018 4 Comments

Historical fiction novels are my favorite genre when it comes to reading. I love getting lost in the time zone and historical setting while reading them.
