Why can’t a girl help her father financially? Why can’t a girl be the pillar of the family when tough time blows in? Why is a girl asked to give up on her dreams after her marriage? Why are daughters and daughter-in-laws always differentiated as far as their dreams , freedom and ambitions are concerned? Why can’t a woman support a woman for her progress? Who is responsible for a woman’s bondage and servility? The society or a woman herself? This book throws light on the social issues which take place within four walls of a house, especially in a woman’s life. These are not the apparent problems like terrorism, religious rebels, pollution issues, racisms, global warming, etc. These are the hidden issues which suppress and destroy the entire life of women silently, especially those women who have their own wings to fly. Since centuries, women have been getting dominated for some or other reasons. Still this tyranny has not lost its stability. Before she used to be dominated physically, in this century she faces the oligarchy mentally by not getting permission from the society to have her own space. Many a times, she is not allowed to have her own space even for good works. Sometimes she is prevented by the men or women and sometimes she herself accepts her slavery. Why women force women to accept that there is no life of a woman after marriage. This negative thought binds her to make her marriage life doomed. She is ready to gain the responsibility that is why she gets married happily with positive thoughts but along with the responsibilities of the entire family if she steals sometime for herself to do the work of her own interest, what is wrong in that? Aditi, the protagonist of the story cannot give the answers of all the above questions which are faced by various Indian women but she finds the solution of it and the solution is ‘Ignorance and Escape’. Her consistency of ignoring the social tyranny for women’s honour and independence takes her towards her career goals.

Penelope Fitzgerald's novel, The Golden Child, combines a deft comedy of manners with a classic mystery set in London's most refined institution—the museum. When the glittering treasure of ancient Garamantia, the golden child, is delivered to the museum, a web of intrigue tightens around its personnel, especially the hapless museum officer Waring Smith. While prowling the halls one night, Waring is nearly strangled. Two suspicious deaths ensue, and only the cryptic hieroglyphics of the Garamantes can bring an end to the mayhem. Fitzgerald has an unerring eye for human nature, and this satirical look at the art world delivers a terrifically witty read.

The Holy Bible is a life-giving collection of sixty-six inspiring literary masterpieces. Hebrews 4:12 states that The word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. The author has first encountered this life-changing word of God over 40 years ago; his life got drastically changed. This book is a collection of his personal thoughts and experiences compiled daily as he studied the Bible during his devotional time. Indeed, great blessings are experienced when the Bible is studied in its entirety. Yet, even a quick perusal can be spiritually beneficial, too. We may liken a Bible verse merely as a crumb from the whole loaf of Gods word. But they are golden, hence, the title The Golden Crumbs.
