Book Review: Coming Back Home by Anuradha Prasad

Book: Coming Back Home
Author: Anuradha Prasad
Genre: Fiction
No. of Pages: ~300

Coming Back Home, is a typical story of the struggles of Actors trying to making it big in the movie industry. And then it is much more than just that!

Anuradha Prasad's 2nd book (I have not read her first) is primarily around the lives of two very contrasting characters - one who will not compromise on her self-esteem and another who is willing to go to any lengths to make it big. In their own way, both of them are strong, independent characters that are important to the narrative. The story revolves around how their lives change when they intersect and then when they go their own ways.

FASTag - What? Why? Where? and How?

You are probably hearing a lot about FASTag recently! You will probably be hearing more in the coming days!
My FASTag from Paytm

So, here is everything you wanted to know about FASTag!

FASTag is an Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) system operated by NHAI. It is a small rectangular RFID based device that you will have to purchase and stick on the front windshield of your vehicle.

It auto-deducts the toll amount from your account when you pass through a toll rather than your having to stop and pay for it by cash, card or e-wallets.
