  How to do a book review? Tips by experts & opinions by bloggers
Posted by: IBC_Admin - 07-10-2022, 05:04 AM - Forum: Discussions on Book Reviews & Being a Critic - No Replies

In this thread, we will try to bring established book reviewers and literary critics to answer questions by book reviewers and bloggers in their early days. We welcome book reviewers to this discussion. Ask your questions or answer for others. Let's share our ideas that may help aspiring book reviewers. 

Initial thoughts: 
Criticism is versatile. It can be anything. Being a book critic demands more than just reading a few books and sharing one's thoughts about the same. Book critics have a responsible job to do. First of all, is a book critic equal to a book reviewer? Are book bloggers and literary book critics the same? What differentiates between a traditional literary critic and a contemporary book reviewer? How to write a book review? How to become a book blogger? How to emerge as an established book critic today? Is it a useful profession? Can you earn money by reviewing books today? These are some of the many questions that we hope to discuss in this thread. 

Let's start the exchange of knowledge!

  Books by Sri Aurobindo – the powerhouse of Indian intellect
Posted by: VedantSingh - 16-07-2022, 01:15 AM - Forum: Indian Books & Authors - No Replies

Sri Aurobindo was not only a saint and philosopher. As an author also, he achieved a wide reputation and prestige across the world. His books on Indian wisdom, poetry collections, Savitri especially, and many other works on philosophical and spiritual topics that we often find perplexing are very popular. This thread is for readers who enjoy reading Sri Aurobindo. Whatever thoughts you have about Aurobindo as a writer and his books, pour in those and let's begin a meaningful dialogue about this gigantic pillar of Indian English literature. 

Initial thoughts: Sri Aurobindo, perhaps, is the best person to read for anyone who wants to understand India and Indian (in wider contexts). He translated ancient Indian texts, Hindu epics from Sanskrit, and many other languages including Bengali. He simplified the treasure of Indian spirituality for the world through his writings. And not only that, additionally, he also included many things in his work we can easily classify as contemporary in his times. This creative and intellectual amalgam of knowledge and creativity makes Sri Aurobindo one of the best representatives of Indian wisdom. 

Beginners can begin by reading his works on Yoga. Those interested in poetry can start with his initial poems. 

Let's discuss it! Smile
