Review: The Critical Years Of An Immortal Legend

The Critical Years Of An Immortal Legend The Critical Years Of An Immortal Legend by Dr. H.V.Hande
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A tear jerker book on three-month critical period of MGR life in 1984. This book is a treasure trove of information pertaining to the treatment given to MGR in India and abroad.

I was little astonished that how MGR's doctor did not took any steps from September 15th to October 4th on health issues that have arised during the function in Thanjavur, Dr. Hande has clearly stated that in the blood test the creatinine Puratchi Thalaivar MGR blood on September 15th. In medical terms the urine should have high level of creatinine and blood should have low level, it means the kidney is not functioning properly, it was a clear message that MGR's doctor should have checked his kidneys, unfortunately nothing was done.

This book can be developed into a wed series so much info packed nicely. The author who was also the Health Minister in MGR's cabinet his role on timely intervention of assembling not only doctors but also engineers who gave crucial advice of how to make air travel of MGR safely are neatly given.

MGR fans will shed tears in couple of chapters for sure. In two chapters my eyes welled up and I was not able to continue my read.

The help MGR has given to many took shape in helping him back when the situation was worse. Timely diagnostic help of Dr. Kanu from Japan his episode of single passenger flight through Singapore airlines, which I already know during my IATA studies are worth to mention.

In all Dr. Hande has beautifully recorded the extraordinary come back of the legendary MGR from his illness. A collector's edition, a must book for MGR fans.

Review: Vivek, Vishnu, Oru Vidukadhai

Vivek, Vishnu, Oru Vidukadhai Vivek, Vishnu, Oru Vidukadhai by Rajesh Kumar
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

As usual stuff, very interesting plot line. Nearly after 30 years I am reading Rajesh Kumar novels, thanks to Amazon prime.

The protagonist Vivek takes up the murder case of D.I.G. Palraj and I.A.S. Officer Ravinder by snake bite. Same time he receives sms from the killer which fuels the plot line, the real killer is revealed in the climax. An interesting read.

Review: Famous Assassinations

Famous Assassinations Famous Assassinations by Sarah Herman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Thanks to Net galley for providing me a with a copy of Famous Assassinations by the author Sarah Herman.

The author provides information of some of the assassinations of most notable figures in history. Some we know and most we don't.

The author Sarah Herman has categorised killings of notoriety from earliest written records to the present, she also given backstory for the assassinations.

The common and mostly known by us are the killing of Emperors/kings to make room for others to the throne, murdering religious leaders for political mileage. But in this book we will find many unknown instances which has the same base.

The book is pretty neat in providing overview and this will help people who needed further study can use this as a spring board.

Review: Kumarikandama Sumeriama?

Kumarikandama Sumeriama? Kumarikandama Sumeriama? by P.Prabhakaran
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The author have given out some facts that could relate that the people of Sumeria are proto Dravidians and some of the Sumerians settled in Dilmun which is termed as a heaven in Sumerian cuneiforms. The author Prabhakaran say that the city Dilmun is Tamil Nadu or South India. The book made me to buy other books related to this topic of human evolution and also about Indus Valley Civilization.

The author has substantiated some facts that there is no submerged country Lemuria which is believed to have existed and was near Kanyakumari. As there is no archaeological evidence till date to disprove his idea. He has given some examples of names from Sumeria and I found other similar words to early Tamil and one such is a place called Mari.

As per the research the first homo sapiens born in East Africa and they started to migrate to other places, and homo sapiens took the seashore route to reach other countries and as such humans came to South India not earlier than 80,000 years before that is earlier than any other civilization. How could we say that Sumerians came to South India as first with their superior culture

A good book to start for those having much interest in Archaeology and human evolution.
