7 Ways to Stay Sane on the Social Media
 [New Release]


Synopsis

The COVID-19 times have given a different meaning to the word ‘viral’. In these troubling and uncertain times, when the world has largely come to a standstill, we began our internet journey with a rapid pace. Everyone worked towards starting things online, be it entertainment, education, medical advice, healthcare services, or food industry. While this was being done to provide essentials, social media was revealed to us in a different form. 

Frustration towards the present situation, trolling, hatred, criticism, political word wars went rampant. Although such a display may seem obvious in these times, have we really thought about how to best use social media even before? Is this platform limited to entertainment? Or have we neglected its other dimensions? This book explores simple ways of using social media with caution and finding opportunities for success.

Reviews

"Social Media has definitely become an essential ingredient in the life of Millennials. But the baby boomers sure can't deny the fact that it is something that they cannot stay away from either. Heramb tactically puts forth ideas as to how you can use this very Social Media to your benefit instead of just scrolling through it day and night without letting it help you in reaching your goals. It's the most simplified approach proposed in words for anyone and everyone out there. The book is current and easy to understand. He walks you through the steps you need to take to adapt to the changing media landscape and the ways in which you can optimize it to your own benefit. This puts light on several positive uses of social media and online spaces."

The Last Nomad
 

A novella by Heramb Sukhathankar
Released at Jaipur Art Summit 2019, Mumbai.



Synopsis

Every moment of Rahul Gite’s childhood has been etched with strange stories; untold stories from the dark and dreary lanes of thriving Shantinagar slum in Bombay. Written by nameless faces out of the thrust for survival these are stories of hate, love, greed and belief. But everyone hates them; they bring us face to face with life—off guard and will-less.


Then there is Ryan Davis enjoying the ancient stories of myths and legends from his parents, sitting in the drawing room of a well furnished apartment in Sagamihara, Japan – the land of hope. Life in Sagamihara has been nothing short of a fairy tale; streets bathing in the beautiful pink cherry blossoms, autumn leaves floating at the mystical Lake Sagami and gigantic kites magnificently soaring in skies during the Sagami Giant Kites Festival. Life has become a story soaked in fantasy leaving Ryan longing for more. One day by happenstance, Rahul and Ryan meet each other at the crossroads of life. Will they have to let go the stories they have cherished?

Reviews

“अंगावर काटे आणणाऱ्या या घटना एखाद्या साहसी समुद्र प्रवास किंवा घनदाट जंगलामधील कथांच्या इतक्याच रोमांचक आहेत. 'द लास्ट नोमाड वाचताना, लेखक मधु मंगेश कर्णिक यांनी लिहिलेल्या 'माहीमची खाडी' या कादंबरीची आठवण होते.”
- Jaydev Bhatwadekar (Lokprabha)

- Anjana Khare

हे बंध रेशमाचे [अतिथी लेखक: गिरीश सुखठणकर]

१० ऑक्टोबर १९७८ ची संध्याकाळ मी कधीही विसरू शकणार नाही. माझी पत्नी सौ. शुभदा आणि मी, गंगाधर निवास, दादर च्या गॅलरी मध्ये उभे राहून पावसाची मजा पाहत होतो. हवेतला गारवा मनातील उत्कंठेला गुदगुल्या करत होता. मला शुभदा बऱ्याच दिवसापासून आवडायची पण तिला कसे विचारावे या तगमगितच १ वर्ष निघून गेले. पाऊस हा प्रेमवीरांचा आवडता ऋतू का असेल याचा प्रत्यय येत होता. एकमेकांबद्दल प्रकट न केलेल्या भावना या ऋतूत अंकुरित होत होत्या. त्या दिवशी मात्र मी धीर करून शुभदाला विचारले, 'माझ्याशी लग्न करशील का?'. तिनेही लगेच होकार दिला. आपल्या माणसाच्या फक्त समोर असण्यानेच चिंब पावसातही एक वेगळीच उब जाणवू लागते याचा अनुभव मी घेत होतो. संपूर्ण आभाळ ढगाळ असतानाहि शुभदाच्या चेहरा पाहून माझ्या मनात, छोटा गंधर्वांचं, 'चांद माझा हा हसरा' हे पद आपोआप वाजू लागलं होत. त्यावेळी तिचे वय होते १६ वर्षे आणि माझे २१ वर्षे. दोघांच्याही घरून होकार आला आणि ३० मार्च १९८० रोजी आमचा विवाह झाला.  पण लग्न म्हणजे नेमकी काय चीज असते हे समजावणारी खरी गम्मत पुढे घडणार होती. शुभमंगल सावधान!
लग्नापासून आम्ही कायम माझ्या आईवड…

An excerpt from one of the stories: डिव्हायडर
"आजूबाजूने वेगाने जाणाऱ्या दुतर्फा गाड्या. मधे डिव्हायडर. त्यावर तो, त्याची पेण्टिण्ग्स आणि पुस्तकं. वाऱ्यामुळे उडणारी दाढी त्याच्या टीशर्ट शी खेळत होती. कानातल्या इअरफोन्स मधे कुमार गंधर्वांच्या आवाजात कबीर गात होते, "माया महा ठग्नी हम जानी". "
