Day 28 ♥ Happiness is Reading Books on Leadership ♥ Top 30 Books on Leadership!

Happiness is Reading Books on Leadership!

Happiness is Reading Books on Leadership! Writing Fiction is an art. Reading Fiction is Real Happiness. That’s my philosophy till I met a colleague who’s high on reading books on leadership. His recommendations changed my view on non-fiction books and the first book I picked up was of the genre spirituality – Confessions of a Buddhist Atheist. Later, I picked a couple of books on leadership. It inspired me a lot. Hence I made a wish list – Must Read Top 30 Books on Leadership.

Uff Ye Emotions 2 Giveaway

About the Book:

Like the lyrics of an old song, which keeps repeating themselves in our mind or a fever dormant in the blood or an importunate lover impossible to get rid of, the memories of love or ‘love’ itself keeps returning in our lives again and again at the oddest of times and the strangest of places.

Randomly, beautifully, haphazardly or passionately, love lives up again—for it has been waiting for you, waiting for this union, waiting to merge with YOU at last.

So, keeping the trend alive and after the roaring success of our novice, Uff Ye Emotions, we are back once again with Uff Ye Emotions-2.

With Love, comes many emotions—some of them being pain, betrayal, hatred, hope and friendship. We fall IN and OUT of love time and again, but we can never be tired of it—because it is one of the only few aspects of life we can’t keep ourselves away from, isn’t it?

Selected and edited by Vinit K. Bansal, this time again 11 touching stories from authors across the country, will be delighting the readers who swear by love stories. And for those who don’t read love stories much, come and discover why they are so engrossing.


Vinit K. Bansal, Mahi Singla, Kunal Marathe, Shalini Katyal, Udita Pal, Himanshu Appie Chhabra, Siddhartha Yadav, Heema Shirvaikar, Ishani Malhotra, Saravana Kumar Murugan, Tarang Singha, Meghant Parmar, and Heena Ahuja
