  I'm a huge fan of Agatha Christie and love her books. Even the ones that are less entertaining. She will always be my favourite crime books author. The Murder of Roger Ackroyd was a masterpiece and it's my favourite book from the series.  I've read several books of hers, which include And Then There were none, The Murder at the Orient Express, Cards at the table, The Mysterious Affairs at Styles, ABC Murders, and I'm yet to read so many good books of the series.

With great pyramids comes scary mummies. They were terrifying in 'The Mummy' movies we watched in our childhood.

The tombs are also decorated with scenes from Egyptian mythology.  There's so much to know about Egyptian mythology and their old culture. A simple search on the web will give you a vast amount of information that will be enough to keep you occupied for years. But the best way to learn about them is through a story. A story told by a writer who has a Ph.D. in Egyptology. A writer so popular that th

The first book Scion of Ikshvaku  was released in June 2015. The second book Sita: Warrior of Mithila  was released in May 2017. And the third book Raavan: Enemy of Aryavarta   was released in July 2019. Amish is currently working on the fourth book of the series, tentatively titled ' The War of Lanka '.  Earlier it was confirmed on the Facebook page of Amish that the book will be released in the first half of 2021, that is around June-July. But as of now no confirmation about the release date of the book. Amish currently stays in London and is a Director of the Nehru Centre. So it would be difficult for him to manage writing books because of added responsibilities as a director. He also lost his father recently and that must have been a difficult time to cope with for him. So the delay is justifie
