THE CHANGING NATURE OF EDUCATION

In this era of globalization, the interdependence of nation is not restricted to the competitive paradigm of international trade and commerce. It has far-reaching impact on the regional, national and intra-national diversity of a country, which includes rapid demographic, social, and economic change. Its influence can be perceived from the constantly evolving social norms, and the concept of education is no different to this change.

Education viz. knowing the knowable’ is a vital part of our existence. It determines our efficiency, response, and conduct towards a country’s resources. The better the quality, the higher moral resource of a country is determined. Hence, the quality of education system determines the bonafide personalities it is producing. The importance continues to develop in the context of changing global scenarios.

Furthermore, in the present times, the advent of a globalized world has resulted in rapidly increasing socio-economic environments, inter-cultural exchanges, and high-paced technological advancements. Thus resultantly broadening the horizon of education from the conventional forms of classroom education.

The purpose of education is not limited to academic pursuits or the development of professional acumen, but moralization of a man. It includes the need for a holistic system that provides with values full of compassions, ethics, and engages in the peaceful development of individuals.

Today, there are numerous means of education. Earlier classroom, teachers, and libraries were by large the only mediums of education, but with the introduction of technological platform, the identity of the classroom, teachers, and libraries have changed. We have developed virtual realities which include virtual mediums changing the entire educational mechanism of humankind.

The challenge today is to reduce the disparity in the educational mechanism and to deal with the concerns with respect to the growing environmental challenges, technological and philosophical threats. To make it sustainable by providing various platforms to interact and exchange ideas which will facilitate the required growth in the education sector. After all, we cannot limit ourselves by only brimming the society with literates.

Lumiana by Alex Benkast (Book Review #347)

Lumiana is the first stand-alone contemporary book written in the romance series called, Rebels Like Us. Lumiana is an anthropologist that has a passion for music. She has had a rough time growing up, and that has caused her to withhold her emotions, but when she meets another musician, she finally is able to experience how it feels to come out of her shell.

Johnny is looking to create an album, and when he hears Lumiana’s voice, he is awestruck. There is foul play at hand, however, and that causes a stormy event between the two which induces the reader and the story to be very interesting to read.

When I initially saw the cover of the book, I was instantly drawn to see what the story was about. It had that feminine touch to it which was appealing for a romantic story. I personally enjoyed Lumiana’s personality. The author described the story in a very emotional and touching way, which was needed for the plot. A gifted and talented girl whose heartbreak was felt and was very relatable added to the drama and the dashing.

The relationship between Lumiana and Johnny was also believable and not too – Hollywood style. The foundation of the storyline was also strong since this is to be the first of its series, the author introduced a cast filled with character and narratives, in order to add to its branches.

I believe anyone interested in reading a well-written romance novel will enjoy this one.

Warm Regards,

Kale and Jason by Travis Lee (Book Review #103)

 

This review was kindly requested by the Author, Travis Lee.

Do the paths you take and the dreams of getting there always appear to be the right course of action? And let’s assume you get there, is it then, all you ever wanted?

For Kale & Jason, this story begins with a dream, a goal that is borderline obsessive. Becoming a warrior is all they ever want to be. Jason is an apprentice, and as usual, his master is holding back on teaching him everything Jason needs to know. This fact frustrates our aspiring young lad, and on the other side, Kale seems to have a better chance, or so it seems. He receives occasional tutoring via a swordsman.

The setting for this Wizarding World is exceptionally well written. Although the two main characters come from a separate and different way of growing up, they both share a touching childhood, and that is, being an orphan. The tale is written from two perspectives, which was very insightful.

 

Everything changes when raiders attack Kale’s village. These two men meet, and it is their time to shine. There is a sword named the Masamune. This sword plays a significant role in the story.

Although I found the cover of the book to be not as clear, I enjoyed reading the tale. The story does take on enough backstory to support the whole plot. I found the ending and the build up to getting there quite pleasing. The author’s style of writing is delicate to the mind and easy on the understanding.

Everything about the story and the casting crew was very well thought out. I believe that this science fiction, dark fantasy tale does draw you in enough to forget your surroundings and inclusively indulge yourself into the drama and exciting battles it retains.

Having read so many books in the Wizarding world, I believe this one was unique and I do recommend it.

Quest Chasers: The Deadly Cavern by Grace & Thomas Lockhaven (Book Review #104)

Thie review was kindly requested by Grace Lockhaven.

Quest Chasers is a charming children’s book written about a girl named Eevie and a boy named Tommy. There is a very pleasing bond of friendship between these two, and as they enter the world of which they have never known before, they are trapped. Every quest is a riddle, and every riddle has an answer to opening a way for their freedom.

The setting and story take them to a fantasy world named Labyrinth. It is similar to the kind of worlds you enter when you read Narnia. I particularly enjoyed the fact that the children had to think to get out of sticky situations. The tale focuses on magic, imagination, challenges, and problem-solving and that, in my opinion, makes a perfect recipe for a children’s book.

 

As the children become closer to the end, they realize that the path they may have taken was not entirely the correct one. This magical fantasy book surprises you with a very sweet ending and grabs you into wanting to know more.

The literary standard was perfect for children. I found it very easy to understand, and the paragraphs possessed a relatively gentle flow of connectivity. There was just enough backstory and world-building to invite a child’s mind into this fantasy, and I believe that this was executed superbly. The authors seem to have good knowledge of what children like to read and to imagine in a story.

 

I highly recommend this book for parents and their children and look forward to reading more from these authors.

Here She Rules by Kat Brewer (Book Review #346)

Here she rules is a work of woman fiction with strong hints of fantasy. Ladies are fierce, formidable, and are warriors. The land of Erla is ruled by women, and this story takes a turn when Cassandra saves the Queen. She is then promoted to a position that provides her with an endless amount of men, all servant to her needs and desires. She has everything she wants but there is a catch, she cannot leave.

When I began to read this book, I felt the strong impulsive need of sensing that the author wished to introduce a more female-dominated world where women are not the ones to be saved, and they are the heroes. Embracing what is, and accepting what you have rather than wanting what you don’t is the message here.

What I did feel at times was how dominant the women were over men, and that took me a while to get used to. The other thing I was not sure about was the book cover. Why would a story with such strong women presence, have a 6-pack male body, as its cover?

The world development was crucial in my opinion, and that was done in a very descriptive way. Cassie falls into this rift that enters her into this fantasy world. The literature standard was in a good manner which made the experience much more pleasurable.

I believe it is nice for once to be able to read about a story where the tables are turned, and women are in charge.

I recommend this book to fantasy readers.

Halfway by Lokesh Sharma & Anubhav Sharma (Book Review #105)

 

Imagine a life after you die where you don’t remember anything from your previous existence. Halfway is a story about after death. Anyone that dies wakes up into this realm called the Enigma. They all have to face any crime they have committed and answer for any wrongdoings.

 

The setting of this world is fantastic. Although the story is short, it contains enough backstory and plot to make it appealing to read. I found the whole book to be unique. The literary standards were up to speed, and it was easy to feel for the people that were now facing a new and very unfamiliar lifestyle.

The chapters and the layout of this book consist of enough content and backstory to give you an idea of the characters have been through. Everyone in the Enigma is trapped and is enduring a life even worse than death. They are cursed in such a way that they are unable to rise above the leader and the system. There is a war to win and an army to build.

 

The ending of the story was absorbing and does make you wish to find out what happens next. I generally do not comment on book covers, but I have to say that I found the cover to be very attractive.I recommend this book to any science fiction and fantasy reader.

The Mating Game by Dr. Lyndon McGill (Book Review #107)

This review was kindly requested by the author & UnderratedReads.

When it comes to relationships and how to maintain a healthy connection with someone it is very hard to understand and to read the other persons thoughts and feelings. This book, although written by a male perspective, does give you an in-depth insight into human behavior, needs and how to keep a relationship.

The mating game introduces four urges, which are called the 4 “F’s.” These are what “motivate human behavior and ultimately determined the success or failure of a male- female relationship.”

At first, I thought that this book was going to be an all-male dominant “what we need,” “what we want” kind of book. The ones that bash woman and suggest men have no feelings and that it is all physical for them. However, the book surprised me. The mating game is more like a mental and psychosocial take on what is in the mind of the counterpart. The book also discusses underlying conflicts between the man and the women, which is one of the main reasons why we have such a high ratio of divorces in the 21st century. Dr. McGill covers many sensitive topics like loneliness, depression, how to reclaim respect and how to re-light a relationship that has lost its spark.

I found the book to be very easy going and the literary standard was in good standing. The topics were pleasantly connected and the layout was smooth. The sensitive and important issues came with the right flow. I especially enjoyed reading about how and why men are attracted to the certain type of women?

I believe many will benefit from reading this book. It has logical and medical reasoning to back its claims, and above all, it is easy to understand, and for that reason, I give this book four stars.

I recommend this book to anyone that appreciates comprehending the knowledge and reasoning behind relationships.

Interpretation by Dylan Callens (Book Review #345)

Interpretation is a dystopian science fiction novel about Carl Winston. He has a son, Liam whom he adores. Everything seems to be going as normal until Carl takes his annual government test. His answers are considered as flawed, and that becomes a problem. This is when the story takes an interesting turn. Carl is separated from his son, and the story is unraveled with many dark secrets and hardship in understanding the truth behind it all.

The government appears to be the owners, and the people are the creations. In this dystopian world human emotion, hope and dreams are interpreted differently.  This twisted and very novel story takes you on a journey where you don’t really wish to go. It constantly makes you think, what if this was true and what if it happened now?

I particularly liked the father-son relationship between Carl and Liam. The added romance was also very pleasing. Eva and Carl’s connection was a nice additional touch in this simulated cold environment of mind control. The storytelling had a very intriguing psychological touch. Being controlled and having your mindset so strongly by others in such a way that you are not able to even distinguish reality from being manipulated, was written in such a professional way.

The story had no flaws, and the literature standard exceeded my expectations. I truly think this is one of the best science fiction novels I have read. I look forward to reading more from this author.

The Emblem Throne: The Runes of Issalia, Book II by Jeffrey L Kohanek (Book Review #101)

 

This review was kindly requested by the author, Jeffrey Kohanek

This is the second book of the series. If you wish to read the review of the first book, then you can find it here.

We journey back with Brock and his friends to the Academy. He is in training and discovers some unwelcoming truth about the whole organization including conspiracies and lies within the ministry itself.

Previously we learned that Brock was stuck in a world where an individual’s self-worth was categorized and classed based on runes. His dying aunt informed him about a guy named Alonza. He marked Brock as a member of the empires ruling class and created a fake tattoo for him.

Brock and his friends now have to go on a quest in finding a throne that has been lost for many years. This time round, they have to save humanity and all they have is words from an ancient prophecy and a kind of magic that they can barely wield.

Every scene is written with precision, and you can easily vision the imagery of this book. From The Chaos, The Unchosen and The Banished Horde to the romance, adventures, action and magic, this book does not disappoint.

If I had not read the first book, I still would have been able to pick up from book two. The Runes of Issalia, allows you to read more into Brock’s friends, Cameron, Benny, Ashland and their families. There is sufficient additional backstory for the next book, and that was justifiably executed in a well-plotted script. Although the whole notion of the battles, drama, love and loss they encountered was all for the right reasons, I found the ending to be even better than the first book.

 

As a reader, I would say just to buy all three books at one time because once you read the first; you really want to know the rest. I also appreciate the penmanship of this author and do find his work interesting. I recommend this book to everyone that likes a bit of magic and in their life.
