July is a great time to relax with a good book. Whether you’re on vacation, at the beach, or just enjoying some quiet time at home, a great book can make your summer even better. Here are the top 5 books to read this July that will keep you entertained and inspired.


The Padmas by Neha Hiranandani

This book is a great read for children, as it introduces them to a world where people made extraordinary efforts in ordinary fields to create something remarkable. It encourages them to pursue their passions and believe in themselves. Featuring 50 stories of Padma Shri Awardees and their journeys from zero to hero, the book is beautifully illustrated and can be a wonderful gift for young children. My 10-year-old absolutely loved it and spent the entire day narrating stories from it, his eyes glowing with excitement. I’m deeply grateful to the author for writing this book. All the stories are amazing and inspiring, but the one that stood out for me was about Nartaki Natraj, a transgender woman who, despite numerous obstacles, proved her mettle as a classical dancer. This is my second read by the author, and I look forward to more of her books. If you want to know more about the book, click the link below and show some love.

 Survival at Stake by Poorva Joshipura


Have you ever wondered why pandemics and epidemics are increasing day by day, unlike years ago? It’s because animals have become a business, and people are busy catering to demand and supply. Many of us are unaware of how each animal contributes to maintaining balance in the ecosystem. Every species, from the smallest bee to the tiniest ant, helps maintain this balance. As the population grows, so does the demand for meat, leading to farms where animals are given antibiotics that end up in human bodies. Sick animals living in cramped spaces with feces all around pose significant health risks to humans. The extensive research done by the author is incredible, and the figures are quite disturbing. Every individual should read this book to understand the world we live in and how we live. Read it, spread the word, and let’s strive for a better world for our children and future generations.
