Agatha Christie comes to Dailyhunt in style!

book

I remember some of the best times I spent during my childhood. Stealing cake from the kitchen or making a tent out of a bedsheet. But my fondest memories are of nights when I stayed up late because I was so immersed in a mystery written by Agatha Christie. That woman sure knew how to spin a tale and maybe that is why she is called the ‘Queen of Suspense.’ She had this uncanny ability to make characters come alive in the minds of the readers and the experience one had was less of reading a book and more of watching a movie reach its climax.

Well there’s good news for all those who grew up as immersed in and enthralled by the world of Hercule Poirot, Miss Jane Marple and Parker Pyne as me.

All the books and short stories written by Agatha Christie can now be found on Dailyhunt – The No. 1 mobile application for reading news and e-Books in all major Indian languages.

Some of Christie’s most famous books like The Murder at the Vicarage, The ABC Murders and The Murder on the Orient Express have been bought and downloaded by readers not just in English, but also in Hindi, Marathi and other popular Indian languages. In addition to these, you can also browse through a wide selection of other books like Death on the Nile (Parker Pyne short story), Peril at End House (Poirot Mystery), They do it with Mirrors (Miss Jane Marple Mystery) and many more. Amongst these titles are some of the rare publications that are probably not very well known but are as gripping at the others like The Jewel Robbery at the Grand Metrolpolitan (Hercule Poirot Suspense), Hercule Poirot and the Greenshore Folly.

While reading these books is an absolute pleasure, owning them and having them at one’s disposal to open and start reading at any time is an even bigger delight. That is why we would recommend buying these e-Books to all Agatha Christie fans! Get your e-book here.

Lights, Colors and Bliss – Happy Diwali!

diwali-card-with-yellow-background_1035-110

It’s that time of the year when our homes, the lanes and everything else is filled up with colors, lights and laughter. Diwali is a festival which is celebrated all over the country with fervor. Like always, we all deck up for the day, buy crackers in advance, keep a soda bottle ready to launch those rockets, decorate our homes with lights and of course how can we forget the mouth-watering food. This Diwali, Dailyhunt urges you to do something different from the usual, something unusual which will fill your heart with happiness.

Start off by donating. In our daily chores and routine, we often tend to forget about the less privileged. Festivals are great reminders of being selfless. Go ahead and choose your method of donating. It could be as simple as sponsoring a sumptuous meal on Diwali. You can also donate clothes, gifts and many other things as part of this practice.

We spend quite a lot on crackers and the joy we experience when we see our kids enjoying the lights and crackers is priceless. But have you ever thought about those who just get to watch and never get to experience these little joys? Celebrate Diwali with other little less privileged kids. When you see the happiness and smiles on their faces, your happiness will grow tenfold.

Today’s world is about being more absorbed in your own life and family. Make sure this Diwali you invite your relatives and friends over and have a good time with them. Remember, festivals are supposed to be bringing people closer and strengthen bonds.

When it comes to gifting, go for organic or reusable things. Rather than buying something which will never be used. Also try buying from organisations which help the less privileged, by doing so you are helping them and bringing joy into their lives as well. You can always give your loved ones intangible gifts as well. Avid readers can be given books. All you need to do is install the Dailyhunt app and download books for them.

Fill this festive season with joy and goodness. And don’t go slow on those sweets and snacks! Happy Diwali! May you be blessed with happiness and success in abundance.
