Bright lights were flashing; I was caught between red and green flashes. In my mind, I was sitting with legs squeezed against my stomach as if doing yoga that should ease my breathlessness but only adding to my anxiety. My strangled breath started drumming into my ears so that I could no longer hear anything else.
So, I was re-reading Harry Potter. Yes, again! It has been 15 years since I accidentally picked up the first book of series to escape rebuke from a teacher during library period. Since then, I am enchanted.
Books have always been my constant companion. It is through books that I learnt life’s greatest lessons.
However, there are some books that stood out in terms of their impact. In this post, I bring forward the five books that gave me sensible life lessons (minus the pain of going through the trouble of experiencing it myself).

In order to ease out the complexity of relationships, I developed a scale in my mind based on my experiences with all kinds of relationships.
