Choosing a place is never easy. It involves a lot of thinking into a lot of aspects, such as housing, water quality, cost of living, educational prospects, job-related prospects, etc. Whereas some people are unfortunate enough to put up with cities which grant none of the above, there are a few cities in India which actually grant more. Here are some cities which are the most appropriate to live in, and also provide a great quality of life;

1) Mumbai

This city has what other cities in India can merely hope for, such as excellent connectivity, nearby beaches and an exceptional dining scene. So, it’s not surprising that Mumbai is one of the fastest-growing Indian cities.

The city is also bustling with a lot of educational and job-related prospects, not to forget, is the hub for the beloved film industry as well. However, houses in the Central area are not affordable to every layman.

2) Bangalore

Also known as the Garden City, this place will always satisfy you with its amazing weather. It is never too hot or cold. It had transformed itself into a busy IT hub and has very few quiet areas nowadays. It is also home to amongst the top educational centres and colleges, such as NLSIU, Bangalore, which is the best law school in the whole country.

3) Pune

A city which is bustling with a lot of vibrance and youth, Pune is home to amazing centres and offices for various big corporate houses. It also is home to the one and only Nation Defence Academy in the nation. The cost of living in Pune is also much less than other metropolitan cities, and it offers a great quality of life as well, not to forget, nightlife included!

4) New Delhi

This city is welcoming to every possible idea for development. Most of the corporate houses are situated here, as well as a lot of amazing colleges and schools. Being the capital of India, it blends the old with the new, which is very difficult for cities nowadays, in the era of globalisation.

5) Chennai

Alias, the gateway to South India, Chennai is amazing for those people who wish to live a quiet life ahead. One may also experience that life goes in a much slower pace than other cities in India. However, this doesn’t affect the efficiency of the work that people have to offer. The best part about this city is that it is home to beautiful pristine beaches with long stretches of clear sand and waters.

A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies! – George R. R. Martin

BOOKS

A very famous proverb says, “Books are man’s best friends!”. Books have proved to be lifesavers for us. They can be our companion in every possible way. May it be a long journey, insomnia, a hectic day, or a relaxing Sunday morning; books are always there for us. “A room without books is a body without a soul.” a great soul Cicero said. We generally take time to decide which book to read. This happens because thousands of options are available at present. Authors from India and outside India have delivered some best epic novels/books.

In this article, I have penned down a list of 5 books by Indian authors that I believe are a must-read.

Train to Pakistan – By Khushwant Singh

Credit: Amazon India

This book focuses on the partition of undivided India. Released in the year 1956, it touches the people’s hearts by lime lighting the days of partition. The book showcases a village where a peacefully living community transforms into one driven by hatred. The most interesting and remarkable part is the description of different characters. This makes one read the book desperately. Train to Pakistan was also translated into Tamil language and was picturized on a big screen with the same name. The book brings out a human perspective towards the partition of British India to India & Pakistan. It focuses on the human experiences of horror and crisis, unlike the other accounts that used to focus on Politics. Train to Pakistan is a must-read for those who look towards exploring Indian History.

My Experiments with the Truth – By Mahatama Gandhi

Bapu aka Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (Mahatama Gandhi) has been a prominent figure and an inspiration in the Indian history. The ups and downs of his life, his inspiring courage, a sharp mind, and various controversies make him the Father of the Nation. Bapu is indeed an inspiring and impressive legendary personality to read and get to know about. ‘My Experiments with the Truth’, his autobiography, tells each and everything about his life experiences. It covers the whole of his life from early childhood till 1921. How Gandhiji resumed writing when insisted by a fellow prisoner at a Central Jail is also showcased in the book. It was earlier written as weekly journals post which it was compiled and published as a Book. It is very interesting to read the unknown and undiscovered facts about Bapu’s life.

You Are the Best Wife – By Ajay K. Pandey

For those who believe in love, this book is for them. It is the story of the author Ajay and his late but beloved wife Bhavna who left him midway. Her last words, ‘You are the best husband’ gave him the courage to live without her and fulfill his promise of love. He then starts working with an NGO after his wife’s death as he looks for a new reason to live. He takes a hard decision to live with Bhavna’s memories as he believes that quality of life matters rather than the quantity. An innocent yet heart-warming love story, You are the Best Wife would definitely give you tears. The author has used simple and understandable words and it gives goosebumps. All I can say is, it is indeed a very emotional story and a must-read.

Midnight’s Children – By Salman Rushdie

Midnight’s Children is a portrayal of India’s journey from the British rule to independence followed by the partition. Another book that lies in the history of undivided India, it is a heart-touching novel. This book received a positive response. It was honored with The Booker Prize in the year 1981 followed by the “Booker of Bookers” Prize (the best among all Booker winners) in 1993 and 2008. The book takes us to various parts of India covering Kashmir, Agra (U.P.), and Bombay (now Mumbai, Maharashtra) and showcases many real historic events. It was also included in the 100 Best Novels of all time’s list, which is something to feel proud of.

It explores how small things can affect people’s lives and behaviors. In 1997, it was honored with the Booker Prize. She started to write the manuscript in 1992 and finished in 1996.
