From Yesterday by Anupam Dasgupta-a book review

From Yesterday by Anupam Dasgupta is a romantic story with three main characters. Although there are three protagonists-it is not a love triangle- it is rather two circles of love- one intercepting the other.
Adi met Anita over a social networking site- both being well established-Adi being much younger than his crush. Infatuation soon develops into love-but Anita’s bitter past continues to haunt her in her present. The voice from the past never let her settle- ultimately she disappears from his life leaving Adi clueless.
Destiny takes Adi to a new land-amid new people. Here he finds Christiana-who instantly felt attracted towards Adi. But the shadowy presence of Anita continues in the life of Adi. Anita was the true love of her life-and Christiana?
The climax gets dramatic and I would rather say-shocking too. The ending will continue to echo in the mind of the reader.
The story has relatively fewer characters-but that did justice to the plot. It became well knit and characters also became reliable. Description of the city of Chennai and Chicago-where the story is staged, in between add spices.
It is a light read-with perfect usage of words and choice of dialogue. The way the story begun amid flashback raised my expectations and ultimately I am not disappointed.

The Future of War: A History, with Lawrence Freedman

"Though most of the literature you will read on the future of war certainly talks about war as between regular armies, as proper fights, now with drones or with autonomous vehicles or robots or whatever, or even painless--cyber and so on--yet actually the reality of war is as it has always been: it is vicious, and it is nasty, and it kills the wrong people, and it does so in considerable numbers."
