Review of The Stolen Heart

Title : The Stolen Heart

 

Author : Piyush Mandal

 

the stolen heart - collection of poems in PIYUSH

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My View: ‘The Stolen Heart’ is a collection of sixty poems by the debut poet – Piyush Mandal. In his debut book, most of his poems can be found under the umbrella of love, where one can see shades of remembrance, resemblance and many more shades a lover’s heart poured with. Along with some dips of love, one could get poems on a legend’s life, an aging life, and some more. All in all, this book speaks of a chance to experience the wonderful moments under the open sky.

 

 

 

Some of his poems peels off the layers of life’s mysterious while most of them dances on the tunes of a lover’s melodies. Poems from his boats are so beautifully framed that one would starve to read them again and again, and glorify the meaningful verses by touching their root and feel their rhythm.

 

 

As you start the journey, you would be amazed to find how poet tore the fragments of life and through the feathers of love sculpts such beautiful verses. Through his debut book, poet impresses reader by serving delighting verses . As his verses are rich in simplicity, they can easily make space in reader’s heart.

 

 

His verses loop in and then loop out , and when readers swirl around it poet makes sure that the reader will feel delightful when the verse ends. His words encircle reader in the maze he creates with his words and intermittently soothes reader’s heart. When some of the pieces of his verses sing melodious to the ears, there comes time, when they dance on a particular rhythm and swept out of the tuning, but then he again gathers the rhythm ending the verse on a smooth and euphoric node.

 

 

Lovely collection of poems, puissant and comely!

Review of The Priceless Gift

Title: The Priceless Gift

Author: Hemalatha Gnanasekar

 

the priceless gift

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Blurb: The Priceless Gift deals with the problem of sexual abuse at the workplace. But the irony is that most of the victims bear the wrongdoings silently. As a result, they find themselves unable to develop healthy relationships for fear of trusting anyone. Filled with depression, they ultimately turn out to be loners. Yet there are quite a few who stop dwelling on their bitter past and come to terms with their life. Priya is one such character. She is sexually exploited at her workplace and gets pregnant. Unable to bear the shock, her mother passes away with a heart attack. She is devastated but she does not lose courage and decides to move on. The novel narrates how she gives birth to her son and brings up him comfortably. But life brings her again face to face with the man who had ruined her life. Now, Vijay is a devastated man having lost his family in the Tsunami. He pleads with her to forgive him but Priya is not willing to even see his face. However, one fine day, he comes to see her with a priceless gift. Does this gift change Priya\\’s mind?

Rating: Hemalatha’s stories are carved from life’s episodes. Her words possess the power to let readers feel comfortable in the journey.While she tries to narrate the story as precisely as possible, so as not to bore the reader with inappropriate details, she also maintains the charm of the story at the same time.The reader can get connected to the story very easily.With less number of characters in the story, it becomes a cakewalk to walk with them on the journey.

The connectivity of the events is done in a good manner.The linking of events is done in such a manner that reader could easily flow with the story without any hurdle. The nature of events is such that they could easily let the reader feel the warmth of the story.Authoress narrates what readers want to know about the story. Although through preface she has given a clear view to the plot, the end is what readers want to know towards the journey.Even after knowing what would unfold next, there was a force to read the chapters in a go.

She pours emotions of the protagonist with ease which results in building a healthy relationship with the reader.Her stories are short but worth your time.She basically focuses on turmoil one faces in the journey of life and presents them in an exquisitely simple manner so that any reader could feel the emotions attached to the story. Although, the story-line may not impress you completely, with the way she progresses ahead with the story may impress you as simplicity is what each of her words carries.

 

A light, good and a quick read!

Review of Guru with Guitar

Guru with Guitar by Vikrmn

Title : Guru with Guitar

 

Author : Vikrmn

 

Guru withGuitar

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Blurb : Guru with Guitar
“Life is like a guitar. Tune. Play. Repeat,” says Viktor, a US based financial professional of Indian origin. He was rich, smart, intelligent, witty and emotional too, but still was lost in finding the purpose of his life. In spite of his great job and hefty pay package, he didn’t feel the sense of contentment.

 

Then he met Kim, his lady luck. She helped him realize his dream life, sparking a love story. Despite his failure in pursuit of his dream, Kim stood by him … till she decided to move on. Viktor is heart-broken, lost again, and struggles to balance his aspirations and office life.

 

This story is his journey through life-changing experiences in India and USA – ranging from writing his first book to becoming a coach for cancer fighters, and then a motivational speaker, to finally becoming the Guru with Guitar.

 

There are 11 heart touching songs, 8 lovely poems and 111 life-changing quotes scripted by the author.

 

My View : It’s a signboard directing you towards your passion, and live your life at its best amidst all the boredom you feel in your life, this story suggests to listen to your heart. Dump the high salary you get in the way of your passion. There’s not much to seek in the story, but there’s author’s writing style to cherish and a life of writer that would carry you to discover his earnings after he met the love of his life. It’s a s story of a CA cum writer cum a lover.

 

What the beginning would serve you is more of a conversational write-up than a story. This nature of the novel keeps on occurring for a good moment that I felt like author wants to tell the story only in the form of conversation exchanged between protagonist and his mates. And then starts the story of a CA, how he met with the love of his life, but the excitement to encounter his love-life also vanishes into thin air, when he doesn’t give enough space and time to readers to feel the moments.

 

Throughout the journey, the hindrance that occurred is exaggerated content at many places.At many places, such scenes are focused which doesn’t play an important role to create an impact on reader’s mind. And as they take most of the space, the much-wanted information that reader seeks for to flow with the story misses in the journey.

 

The often visit of songs and poem may irk reader, as at places it felt like they are not a part of the story, but forcefully made a part of the novel. I loved the quotes incorporated in the book. All the quotes participated in the story being a part of conversation plays their role very-well. His writing style is very-well furnished. When the story fails to come up to my expectation, it was his writing style that was keeping me alive to complete the journey.

Richard DiPilla

Thank you so much

Founder of Johntext Hans-Jürgen John woke up in a dream. Global Goodwill Ambassador. I remember when – years ago – he offered me this website for free. It is part of the international literature platform Johntext. So I was able to write reviews here and build a reputation. Now fate pays back on him … Congratulations Hans-Jürgen John!!!

So many fans and kind people wishing him the very best (for some of the following links you need to be logged in LinkedIn).

Global Goodwill Ambassador (in 09/2017 screenshot above) – Brand Ambassador (in 12/2017) and Global Executive Board Member – Director of Digital Communications (in 01/2018).

It is an honor to receive these titles and use them to make this world a little better.

He follows a simple principle: He tries to help.

We all have a choice. Every day we hear bad news from all over the world. It can make us desperate. It can shock us.

There is a simple truth and it is not in the headline news. It is true indeed: This world is full of people who are kind. You see some of them when you open your eyes. Some need encouragement. They are real – in every town, village, every street, in every family. These people are near us despite the headline news. And these people reinvent our world in a million ways every day. I am sure that you are one of them. Thank you.

Hans-Jürgen John is proud to support some of them. E.g. former member of the Swiss Parliament Roland Wiederkehr – recently honored Global Goodwill Ambassador, too.

certificate of Global Goodwill Ambassador Roland Wiederkehr

He founded Green Cross (together with Mikhail. S. Gorbachev) to overcome the residues of the cold war. And with his organization CareCross (website soon in English) he reduces traffic accidents worldwide and helps victims – because 1,3 mio. fatalities annually on the worlds roads and 500 dead children every day on their way to school (WHO) are one of the biggest scandals. Roland Wiederkehr got the President’s award of the European Traffic Police Network for the thousands of lives he already saved. It is an honor for him to be Global Goodwill Ambassador. He needs support for his organization CareCross. His aim is to help reduce road accidents in development countries and support victims.

Roland Wiederkehr is a wonderful person and role model. Some of us go to cinema or watch films at home in order to see heroes. This one is real.
To watch and understand the following video you need not to know any spoken language:

Claude Ribaux / Zürich / Switzerland is a mastermind of hypnotic therapy. He coaches persons, companies, NGOs …. http://www.clauderibaux.ch/en/

bea and claude ribaux caspea foundation

His dedication is to help thousands of refugees to cope with the traumas of war, eviction, and violence. Soon his CASPEA Foundation in Switzerland will post the new campaign against Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Returning currently from a Hypnosis Convention in the United States he will speak at the 5th International Hypnosis Convention in Zürich (October 27th – 29th, 2017) about how to improve learning abilities by active-alert hypnosis.

It is one of my biggest joys in life that Hans-Jürgen John can contribute to such initiatives. And he is glad he is not alone. He has a circle of true friends around him who, in turn, support him.

Matthias Wiemeyer and Petra Huber helped him in many ways and continue to be a source of advice and encouragement. He joined their workshop online-journalist in 2015. Writing for websites. Online-marketing. How to start a social media campaign. Great experience and output!

For all kinds of workshop concerning writing and marketing check out Schreibszene.

Never forget from where you started:
When he had no job he got the chance to join http://derarbeitsmarkt.ch

Der-Arbeitsmarkt-logo

Half a year he learned a lot there. How to write. How to make video interviews. How connect to other professionals worldwide. Special thanks to Robert Hansen, Rita Gabathuler-Dux, Carmen Püntener, Paola Pitton, Daniela Palumbo, Simone Gloor, Anja Piffaretti, Doris Urfer … and many more.

Jörg Mathys from Kölliken is his former employer and a close friend. He is a modest farmer and hard worker. And a role model for Hans-Jürgen. Be trusting. Be kind. Even to the grumpy, the disappointed, the misguided. Give them a chance and one day they will change their mind and be kind and supporting, too.

His employer Migros Basel is part of the big retailer Migros here in Switzerland. Hans-Jürgen John got the chance to work for the Marketing Services Department. The world of business is hard. Competition, hire and fire are words which reign this world.

Migros logo

Migros is different and makes a difference. It employs people who cannot find another job because they have disabilities or because they are older than 50 years. The company gives 1 percent of its total revenue !!! back to society. It supports film, art and social activities. I a world which experiences tax income decreases and governments have to save money this company takes over moral responsibility. Great role model for business worldwide!

Richard DiPilla and his Global Goodwill Ambassadors Foundation is like a rock, an island in this world.

It has the potential to change dark to light, war to peace, hungry to satisfied and hate to love. It already started to change the world. First one person, one idea. And now it covers the world, like a carpet of green grass after a fire, like a carpet of love and goodwill.

Please follow and support Richard DiPilla:

By following him you seed love and peace worldwide.

The new website of Global Goodwill Ambassadors: globalgoodwillambassadors.org

 

The UN first hit on the idea of celebrity ambassadors in the 1950s, when Hollywood and Broadway star Danny Kaye was taken to promote children’s rights. Different UN Agencies nominate the Goodwill Ambassadors at the global level include Angelina Joli, Jacky Chan, Ronaldo, Anatoliy Karpov and others. -source http://www.un.org.ua/en/component/content/article/27

Being good and doing good is not just a characteristic or a luxury for an elite. Although of course the role model function of celebrities helps.

Maybe this describes it best. In May 2018 Hans-Jürgen John commented on LinkedIn:

Yesterday evening a journalist asked me what Global Goodwill Ambassadors is about – what do they do – the journalist insisted: help has to do with money … how can you get water to African villages???

I replied (summarized): We do not collect money. We do much more. Richard DiPilla started a initiative which names thousands of humanitarians Global Goodwill Ambassadors (GGA) – it is like you have thousands of Angels – because these “Angels” are visible online – their photo – their name – what they do.

If you see a celebrity on TV it is wonderful. If this celebrity is a Global Goodwill Ambassador it is a role model. But if your neighbor becomes Global Goodwill Ambassador you suddenly realize it is a status. A competition starts. You also want to be one of them and show your good deeds. To be a “good guy” becomes a characteristic and part of PopCulture.

And one day this competition will make peace so popular that no one wants to be part of evil. #GlobalGoodwillAmbassadors

Decades later there are still challenges in the field of peace, food and justice worldwide. Richard DiPilla started his GGAs initiative with a much broader approach. Under certain conditions, anyone can become a Global Goodwill Ambassador and report on his or her successes from his or her personal environment.

Richard DiPilla - Founder of Global Goodwill Ambassadors

The Beginning of Global Goodwill Ambassadors

From its humble beginnings, four years ago, I sought to highlight the Goodwill work of a single LinkedIn Connection. The birth and growth of the Global Goodwill Ambassadors were born. Almost immediately, other connections were telling me their stories and the humanitarian work they did for the love of goodwill for all. We witnessed a chain of narrative voices.

I could hardly comprehend, that there was and still is a thirst for learning about global humanitarian efforts. A residual affect was an understanding that the mainstream news defined, countries, nations, regions, races, genders, and castes, of geo-political reporting. However, there was much more time with the coverage of a terrorist attacks, but no coverage of all the heroes in these countries, who were saving lives and doing selfless work to make the world a better places.

Global Goodwill Ambassadors Mission
Four years later the Global Goodwill Ambassadors has nearly 2000 designees and a structured board in many countries. Our simple mission has remained as pure. And that was on the first day! We recognize individuals who are engaged in humanitarian work without bias or commercialization.

The later is what keeps us pure as possible. No, we have no website. Websites can put many people in difficult regions at security risk.

We have a LINKEDIN company page and group page that can be found at: Global Goodwill Ambassadors (GGA). We also have a presence on many other social media; but our catalyst is the LinkedIn profile, the volunteer and humanitarian work individuals have listed.

By using the company page you can list your designation with our official logo. We have nomination guidelines with a committee, and a GGA Executive Board.

 

Our Executive Advisors are often names you will recognize as nominators of Ambassadors. We have Country Chairpersons and Directors, Nomination and Engagement Directors, and GGA Brand Ambassadors.

Each person does his/her part to grow our ambassador numbers. With each new designation we are extending the reach of goodwill.

In a recent article that I would like to tell my grandchildren, that rather than sit idly by, I did something to bring a sense of peace and harmony to the world. The truth is, every Global Goodwill Ambassador, can say the same thing.

The sum total of expense and profit in currency for this initiative is ZERO. Our only currency is Goodwill. I challenge all people who read this newsletter to do good deeds and give back to the world. We all share the same world. Don’t just take, give back to make it a better place. As a GGA you will join together with people who are doing the same.

Hans-Jürgen John commented to a LinkedIn-Post of Vincent Coyle who founded Reconciliation Day:

Vincent-Coyle

„Hate and destruction can be aims of humans. These humans cannot follow opposing aims at the same time. Replace old aims by new: love and education = reconciliation“.

The trick is to let words change the world.

Hans-Jürgen John still feels like he woke up in a dream come true and have to realign himself first. He is overwhelmed and thanks you all for your kind words.

All those who supported him in the past but are not mentioned here: Thank you so much!!!
