About the Author :

Anupam Dasgupta has done his Bachelors in  Engineering from Jadavpur University and MBA from IIM Indore. He has worked more than a decade across roles in Business Development, Consulting, and Strategic Planning. He currently works and lives in Bangalore, India.

Anupam Dasgupta writes contemporary fictions largely based on his personal experiences and observations. He firmly believes in the adage " truth is stranger than fiction " and his opinion is the world is full of interesting events and colorful characters.

"From Yesterday " is his second novel . His debut novel "Salsa " was in May 2013 and was subsequently republished as "Salsa World is a small place " in February 2014. His interviews and articles related to the book were featured in leading Indian dailies like " The Times of India ", " The Hindu " , The New Indian Express " and " Deccan Chronicle ".

Besides his passion for writing, Anupam has an ear for soulful Music and loves Singing. He is also an avid follower of Latin Dance forms and a keen social dancer .

Moving to the book - " From Yesterday " is a story revolving around Adi and Anita . Adi is a management professional from Kolkata who moves to Chennai for work. Anita is a makeup artist blessed with name fame and fortune, yet cursed with lonely and loveless existence. Adi and Anita meet in Chennai and instantly fall for each other. However, Anita's checkered past comes back to haunt her. Many things happen in between. Their lives change and they separate.  Adi moves to Chicago for work and happens to meet Christina.  Christina gets attracted towards Adi . However, Adi still waiting  for Anita .The book is partly written in flashback mode . In between Adi also meets with a Tarot Card reader , Ravena , in a club while dancing . The story is quite interesting . The book compels you to read it further .To know what happens next . Read the book today and discover if Adi And Anita meet again . Is Anita Will come back ? . All these questions will be answered only when you read the book . 

Though I think that the character of Anita is negative.

The best part of the book is the suspense till the end. You can only get to know about it when you read the book till the end. I like the way Anupam Dasgupta wrote this book. 

The plot is really interesting. Though there are many elements they all connect beautifully at the end . The characters are also drawn well. I liked the characters of Christina and Ravina and also Anita's assistant Hamid. The book in its span of 223 pages did not appear dull at any point. The best part of the book though was its climax,- it was very well written and manages to keep the readers engrossed till the end.

Most of the people who relocated to metro cities for a job will relate to this story,  the loneliness, the lack of true friends who can be trusted, and doubts and complexes that often destroy relationships.

Review of " Svayam Natural " - Almond and Oat Scrub : A Natural ,Handmade and Preservative free Face Scrub

Svayam Natural - Almond and Oat Scrub

Hello Friends !!! Hope you doing great . Today I am going to review a Natural , Handmade and chemical free scrub . I love using scrubs to scrape off the dead and dull skin . I have varieties of scrubs from dry powdered form to paste like texture . Some of them are my favorites and today also I am talking about one of my favorite scrub from the brand " Svayam Natural " . Lets move to  review now.

About the Brand :

Svayam Natural products are absolute amazing . All the products are Natural and Handmade . Their products are made up of Ayurvedic ingredients and all are Dadi maa's recipes . They have amazing product range to nourish and rejuvenate our selves .

Price and Quantity :

Rs 415 for 100 grams of Product .
You can find it on discount at amazon and other websites .

Ingredients :

Almond , Oats , Masoor Daal , Haldi and Mustard Seeds .

Directions to use :

You can add the teaspoonful of Scrub powder in whatever base ,according to your skin type .

For Dry skin - Add in Milk .

For Oily Skin  - Add in Curd .

For Normal Skin - Add in Rose water or cucumber juice .

Make a creamy paste and apply on face and neck . Wait for 2-3 minutes then massage your face in circular motion and wash with tap water .

Shelf Life - 

2 months from the date of of opening .
Products are made in small batches , and have no preservatives .So shelf life is less.

My take on Product :

I love using this scrub . Svayam Natural sent me 2-3 products for review purpose and this scrub is my favorite one thats why i a m reviewing it first . I used this scrub thrice in a week . It is in powdered form .You have to make paste according to your skin type . I love to add 1 teaspoonful of curd in it and then put it for 2-3 minutes on face .Afterwards ,I massage in circular motion and rinse well with tap water . This Almond and Oat scrub gives me instant freshness and glow on my face . It also helpful in removing tan .If used on regular basis. This scrub also helpful in preventing pigmention on face , although i don't have any pigmentation but this scrub helps to brighten my face . I love the fact that , Svayam Natural make the natural and clean products , which does not have any kind of preservative or artificial color . All products are made in small batches . Products are cruelty free and vegan . You should do a patch test before using the products because it has mustard seeds, so some people might allergic to it. You also have to use the product with 2 months or before because product has no preservative added . And you have to kept the product lid tightly closed after use , else with contact of oxygen your face scrub might infested . When Masoor dal , oats and mustard present in the scrub , comes in contact of humidity , you will notice the brown bugs .And these brown bugs called weevils eat up your product . :p . So guys do keep it tightly sealed . And use within best before time .

Pros :

  • Natural and chemical free.
  • Paraben free.
  • Helps to remove tan and prevent pigmentation on skin .
  • Cruelty free .
  • Helps to rejuvenate and brighten up the skin .

Cons :

  • Little pricey according to the quantity provided .But you can avail this on discount at amazon .(Its handmade and all natural , doesn't have any kind of artificial preservative that's why costs more ).
  • It is packed in glass tub , many a times in transit , the glass bottles or tub get damaged if not packed well.
  • Shelf life is very less after opening the tub . 

Availability :

You can order it from Amazon , Flipkart , Snapdeal , Shopclues.com and Kraftly .
You can also contact them on their facebook page . Here .
Svayam Natural's  Website - Here 

Rating :

4.7 / 5 

My Verdict :

I love the Scrub .Its grainy in texture and scrubs the face so well . I love to buy it again when i finished this one and my other scrubs in my vanity . Guys , you should definitely give a try to their products . All the products have amazing ingredients which will definitely gonna work on your skin problems .
