The Delhi gang rape incident brought so many chilling facts to limelight. It is simply not an isolated heinous crime occurred in a  city.

The manner in which the girl was mercilessly thrown out naked after rape from a moving bus in the heart of city roads on that shivering winter night - 16th December, 2012 - sent jitters across the country .

The incident mirrors our distressing times where everybody is trying to stress more of governmental action.

12th January every year marks the 'National Youth Day'. Coincided with it, India celebrated 150th birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda on 12th January, 2013.

Vivekananda is synonymous with rousing enthusiasm and youthful energy. Though the soil of Bengal has given birth to so many spiritual masters like Ramakrishna, Lahiri Mahasaya, Paramahamsa Yogananda, Rabindranath Tagore, Arabindo Ghosh, no other had huge public outreach like Swami Vivekananda. This darling child of Mother India propagated the message of Indian Spirituality beyond national boundaries.

Whoever remembers Vivekananda,  they are engraved with his famous Chicago Speech in the Parliament of Religions on 11th September, 1893. It had an electrifying effect on American minds of that time and literally created waves in their society.

Recently I had my fingers burnt when I bought a book from local store whose price was shockingly high when I compared the price with the online bookstores.

It spin my head and alerted my future course of action on book purchases.

I realized that ordering books online is not only hassle free, but cost effective. Further more, it reaches my doorstep instantly, saving money on transport and valuable time, thanks to the boon of technology.

However, the moot point is, could we completely ignore a visit to local book store ? The answer is  big No.  There is no dispute in saying that purchasing a book needs a cursory glance of its contents to gauge our requirement, instead of being deceived by its title, especially in self-help category.
