Okay, “building” is an exaggeration. But I’m definitely making a Radio from scratch. This is not a School Project. Rather, it’s something I’m doing to pass time during holidays. I dedicated a lot of time to learn the Morse Code last week, and I’m proud to announce that I’ve crossed the Beginner’s Level. Mind you, making a Radio is no child’s play and since I’m a high schooler, I’m taking the help of my Physics Prof to get me a Sounding Board. I went out and brought all these p-n junction diodes and transistors and yadda yadda yadda. My prof had all the terminal names printed on the Board so that makes my job a teeny bit easy. But it’s still work, though definitely not a chore because I’M LOVIN IT and can’t wait to get started for REAL!

I LOVE BAN LI ZHI!!!!!! Okay, we’ll get to the review now. WARNING: *SPOILERS AHEAD*
Another year is ending, and we have SO many C-Novels to talk about, yet again. The 2015 Chinese Novel Translations Review done by me and @LucilleLyons had been really successful. So, this time, I’m back with @chairmanlichi to look back at 2016 (coz we have nothin’ better to do anyway. And there’s no place we’d rather be!)
Why did I choose this book to read and then write a review about? Because I’m unabashedly political. And because I wanted to understand the psyche of a country (read: Pakistan) which has been repeatedly accused of exporting terrorism across the world. Even as I post this, India, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, and Bhutan have pulled out of the SAARC Summit that was to be conducted in Islamabad, as a form of protest. I’m talking about Pakistan and its role in the recent Uri Attacks. For those of you who don’t know about it: here’s the story. And now, back to the book.
Well, here we finally meet our female protagonist… She’s strong, independent, brainy and every bit the modern Overseas Chinese young woman. And at the end, we get a bonus too! Read on to find out…
(@calculusfanatic: This is a guestpost. I’ll hand the baton over to @chairmanlichi) Oh. My. God! I think you all need to read this right now. Because I’m positively sure that there are a few glaring similarities between our Chinese Novel, Ballad of the Desert (Da Mo Yao), written by Tong Hua, and the Infernal Devices Series by the American author Cassandra Clare.
Oy, people! I’m back (albeit, temporarily). And I’m here with my good friend @chairmanlichi. She doesn’t do much of blogging on her own, and is into her own Facebook Page for Dumbledore. She’s the New Kid On The Block, now becoming an official part of our Asian Cult Family. And I formally name her my Consiglieri. Join us for a quick chat.
Yeah, so, the response has been pretty good as of now to the first summary of the book. So now, I’m out with the second. Just for the information, @chairmanlichi may decide to change the a little of the plot of the book before I’ll actually get down to posting the full chapters. Okay, so we’ll move on then. Shall we?!
I don’t have enough time nowadays to catch up with translating. So I’ve decided to summarize this one book written by my friend @chairmanlichi, which I totally loved. Okay, I’ll get to the topic now. This is a reincarnation novel. But it isn’t the usual fare. And you’ll know this as I get through this post.
