Personal Book Review – Becoming & Charles Chaplin !!

 

Becoming by Michelle Obama

I Wouldn’t have really read this book. But, The moment you read It’s written by the former first lady, You know it’s going to be a great read. As it’s going to have things you wouldn’t know about their lives and you also get the chance to know the White House from an insider, The whole architecture, The protocols and the life behind the camera as a president and more importantly Michelle Obama’s journey in life.

Charles Chaplin – Autobiography

I really don’t like reading artist biographies or autobiography’s who have been part of the entertainment industry. For one they could be totally biased, one-sided and slightly boring to read. But Charles Chaplin I have been wanting to read for a long time, a couple of days before we went on national lockdown (25th march ’20’ ) I was about to place an order from the e-commerce website, But did not. Also, having read most of the books that I had already ordered and now worried I had no books to read, First I began scrolling from my contacts and messaged a couple of my “friends” if they could lend me some books. After having waited for too long for them to reply, I browsed through my library at home once again! Maybe there is a book I haven’t read and guess what! I found one of the first editions of Charles Chaplin which was tearing apart and I began reading the book, It was one of the best books I must have read on cinema and actor as it teaches you so much about what goes behind an actor during his preparation and how much effort is it to “Act” and being a superstar of the “silent Era” This fascinated me and within five days I had finished reading the book. Right from his childhood to him coming back from Hollywood and visiting his roots in The UK to him finally settling down in Switzerland to have been married numerous time. About five times and having eleven kids to getting the longest standing ovation in the (Twelve Minutes long ) history of academy awards Charles was one hell of a “Charlie.” It’s a must-read for all and besides Charlie, if you want to read another book on an actor you must! And must read Naseeruddin Shah Memoir – Then one day!

When?Why? 

How nobody knew about this ? 

Why -To curb Black money laundering and fake note circulation

When -Effective from today your current ₹500 & ₹1000 are worthless paper.

But,Wait a minute don’t yet make ash from your cash.

Your bank will issue  new currency money for ₹500 & ₹2000 denominations from 10th November 2016.

But don’t forget to deposit your old useless notes between the 10th November and 30th December.

Also to make things comfortable around and ease the people’s tension of  will they be getting notes.

The banks would be open ,for you even on the weekend that’s Saturday and Sunday.

This move by our prime minister has been one of the boldest moves .yet been played by him and his team of minister.

Trivia this was a concept that was implemented by him,But the idea was from a lesser known guy Anil .

And if all prevails it’s time to go cashless.. Paytm karo. 

This plan was planned a few months ago a few close groups knew about it too,But the common man and some elitist  were  stunned by the goggly thrown by our PM.
