Every year, we celebrate days for different things, be it as trivial as World Nutella Day (February 5th, in case anyone was wondering) or as important as World Earth Day, which is April 22nd—there is a day for everything. And today, we celebrate World Book Day—to encourage reading and reiterate the fact that books are AWESOME, period. A book can transport you to places far and wide; it can open your mind to possibilities that wouldn’t occur to you otherwise; it can educate you and teach you new things; it can soothe your heart and soul; it can provide an escape; it can do so many things. And so, we decided to ask around the office to see if you could come up with a nice little reading list for you…and for us! This is what Team MissMalini is reading right now.

'Murder In Mahim' by Jerry Pinto, shortlisted for the Jury Award – Fiction at the 15th #RaymondCrosswordBookAward, is a gripping murder mystery set in Mumbai. Retired journalist Peter D’Souza joins his friend, Inspector Jende, to investigate the death of a young man found dead in the toilet of a railway station, discovering a world of secret desire, blackmail and unspoken love. Driven as much by fear and empathy as by curiosity about men who seek men, Peter tries to track down the killer. It is also a story of family and friendship, and a compelling, often poignant exploration of loneliness, greed and unlikely solidarities in the great metropolis. . .
