BOOK REVIEW OF MELODY’S KEY




image of the book Melody's key के लिए चित्र परिणाम





Melody’s key is a Love story of Tegan (who is later, Named as Tegan Melody Lockwood) and Mason Keane. Both share same passion for Music & they write songs of their own & play piano, guitar with equal amount of interest. Mason a pop star of high acclaim & fan following comes to stay in the Lockwood manor maintained by Tegan’s family. Tegan’s hobbies like painting, drawing, reading, music & art fetches her the love-life.

“Good shepherd, tell this youth what ’tis to love,
It is to be all made of sighs and tears;-
It is to be all made of faith and service;-
It is to be all made of fantasy,
All made of passion, and all made of wishes;
All adoration, duty, and observance,
All humbleness, all patience, and impatience,
All purity, all trial, all observance”
(This from ACT V of Comedy of Errors by Shakespeare)

Author Dallas Coryell‘s Hero Mason sticks to the above said description of LOVE. Testimony to this comes in the form of returning the KEY to Tegan, Releasing their home from the Mortgage loan & handing it over to their parents & regaining the Tegan’s scholarship.

This novel focuses on the impact of financial crisis, which leads the entire family in the autumn season to work in various sphere to meet their ends. Author’s point about the debt, I quote “The debt has always been this evil beast, waiting in the shadows, forever stalking…. Waiting to strike and take everything away.”

Giving priority to the family is a special feature of this novel. Family that eats together, stays together is justified in a very fine tune. Tegan drops out of her education because of the family difficulties. Parents too don’t reveal their debts so as not to disturb their children’s lives. This shows the care & parenting expertise of Mr&Mrs. Lockwood.

Food & Music are part & parcel of this novel. Detailing the preparation of pancakes with different flavours & toppings fulfilling everyone’s needs is a noteworthy point. Music takes a prime place in the novel and songs too are pleasant to read. The Kiss, Blue oceans, Into You, Don’t say Good Bye, Soul of my Soul are the song in the novel.

Prominently, celebrities’ lives are thought as more lavishing & grand, never thought about their darker side, many misunderstanding envelope them & they lead more stressful life. Tegan was also in the same mind set like many people & felt happy to come out of the perspective, I quote “Tegan was grateful for the darkness and distraction of the walk, which allowed her to conceal the mist forming in her eyes.”  She gets clear about Mason.

Author Dallas Coryell is a musician living in Michigan, USA and his work ‘Melody’s key’ is a romantic fiction. KEY in this novel is a symbol of support, energy & positivity to the heroine Tegan. This key discloses her the earlier life of her grandparents, Letters are the major communication in those days, if not destroyed, they expose the secret. Likewise Tegan read those letters and came to know about their love life. Author is successful in bringing out the deep sense of love & sacrifice of violet Patterson.


Melody’s key opens up the Romance in Lymington in about 21 chapters and moves rhythmically with appropriate titles for each chapter.

WORLD DAY AGAINST CHILD LABOUR



                                        image of world day against child labour 2017 के लिए चित्र परिणाम


CHILD LABOUR
                                                                               

Child labour is a slaughter
Which seizes their laughter
They miss their tutors

Child labour is a process
In which they lose their progress
Child labour is a crime
But it became their prime

Child labour spoils the child
And they become wild

Child labour must be stopped
Tools must be dropped
And they must be topped.

A child should be a learner
But never be a labourer
And they should become learned

A child should be a literate
To change his fate
But never so late


To do now
Is to sow

The seed of awareness

Best reads of Summer time - “”Gulliver travels by Jonathan swift”


      summer reading images के लिए चित्र परिणाम




           Summer fetches with itself some leisure time for Everyone. Reading can be a best hobby at any age.  Taste and selection of books may vary, but the enjoyment up to some extent is lauded by all. In general, vacations are mostly synonymous with travels. If one can’t make a travel trip, they can at least go through the travels & experiences of Gulliver.


LORD LYTTON on Gulliver travels: “”And lo! The book, from all its end beguiled, A harmless wonder to some happy child.
   

                                   images of gulliver's travels by jonathan swift के लिए चित्र परिणाम




Gulliver Travels was published in 1726. The book combines in a measure the interest of Robinson Crusoe and the that of the fairy tale; its style is objective, the narrative is simple, and the matter appeals strongly & can be read with profit by the child as well by the young man or woman of mature years.
Travels into several remote Nations of the world in four parts. By Lemuel Gulliver, first surgeon, and then the captain of several ships, better known simply as Gulliver’s Travels, is a novel by Irish writer & clergy man Jonathan Swift that is both a satire on human nature & a parody of the “travelers’ tales” literary sub-genre. It is swift’s best known full length work, &a classic of English literature.
The book became popular as soon as it was published. John Gay wrote in 1726 a letter to Swift that “”It is universally read, from the cabinet council to the nursery””, since then, it has never been out of  print.

In terms of story- telling & construction the parts follow a pattern;
*The cause of Gulliver’s misadventures becomes more malignant as time goes on- he is first ship wrecked, then abandoned, then attacked by strangers, then attacked by his own crew
*Gulliver’s attitude hardens as the book progresses- he is genuinely surprised by the viciousness &politicking of the Lilliputians but finds the behaviour of the yahoos in the fourth part reflective of the behaviour of people.
*Each part is the reverse of the preceding part – Gulliver is big/ small/ wise/ ignorant, the countries are complex/ simple/ scientific/ natural, forms of government are worse/ better/ worse/better/ than England’s.
* Gulliver’s viewpoint between parts is mirrored by that his antagonists in the contrasting part- Gulliver sees the tiny Lilliputians as being vicious & unscrupulous, and then the king of Brobdingnag sees Europe in exactly the same light; Gulliver sees the Lilliputians as unreasonable, and his Houyhnhnm master sees humanity as equally so.
* No form of government is ideal- the simplistic Brobdingnagians enjoy public executions and have streets infested with beggars, the honest and upright Houyhnhnms who have no word for lying are happy to supress the true nature of Gulliver as a yahoo and are  equally un concerned about his reaction to being expelled.
*specific individuals may be good even where the race is bad-Gulliver finds a friend in each of his travels and, despite Gulliver’s rejection and horror toward all yahoos, is treated very well by the Portuguese captain, Dom Pedro, who returns him to England at the novel’s end.

Gulliver’s Travels is a very modern and complex novel. There are subtle shifts throughout the book, such as when Gulliver begins to see all humans, not just those in Houyhnhmn- land as yahoos.
Also, although Gulliver is presented as a common place “’every man’, lacking higher education, he possesses a remarkable natural gift for language. He quickly becomes fluent in the native tongue of any strange land in which he finds himself, a literary device that adds much understanding and humour to swift’s work.
Despite the depth and subtlety of the book, it is often classified as a children’s story because of the popularity of the Lilliput section as a book for children. One can still buy books entitled “’Gulliver’s Travels’’ which contain only parts of the Lilliput voyage.
