Everyone thinks they know the real Gordon Ramsay: rude, loud, pathologically driven, stubborn as hell. But this is his bestselling real story…
Humble Pie tells the full story of how he became the world’s most famous and infamous chef: his difficult childhood, his brother’s heroin addiction and his failed first career as a footballer: all of these things have made him the celebrated culinary talent and media powerhouse that he is today. .
Gordon talks frankly about: • his tough childhood: his father’s alcoholism and violence and the effects on his relationships with his mother and siblings, • his first career as a footballer: how the whole family moved to Scotland when he was signed by Glasgow Rangers at the age of fifteen, and how he coped when his career was over due to injury just three years later, • his brother’s heroin addiction. • Gordon’s early career: learning his trade in Paris and London; how his career developed from there: his time in Paris under Albert Roux and his seven Michelin-starred restaurants. • Kitchen life: Gordon spills the beans about life behind the kitchen door, and how a restaurant kitchen is run in Anthony Bourdain-style. • How he copes with the impact of fame on himself and his family: his television career, the rapacious tabloids, and his own drive for success.
Hola Guys!! How are you?! For today's post I decided to post another one than I had planned since it'd look much better for @james_trevino 's shout out stuff.
So for those who didnt already guess for which or whom this symbol stands for, it stands for the character named Lawliet L, and who is one of the most cherished characters of the anime world and is often placed with the likes of Sherlock Holmes and such.He is quiet secretive and is known all over the world with several aliases, two of which have developed reputations being called the 2nd and 3rd best detectives in the world. He has a total sweet tooth and will be seen eating something sweet 24/7. He never shows his face but only the symbol on screens (aka the symbol in the photo). He is also pretty disheveled and looks like a dirty mess which apparently help in masking his genious and insights.He will always second guess everything, thats the kind of guy he is and for a mystery he is ready to kill himself.And oh he just wont sit normall bc he thinks his reasoning ability would decrease by 40%. Now that we know about the character, lets focus on the anime. L hails from Deathnote which is again one of the most popular anime of all times and is a psychological mystery thriller with mind boggling scenes. The plot is absolutely amazing even tho the end was very much predictable from the very first episode.For this anime , its the episodes in between that matter, and that is why it is one of the true gems. Based on the plot that a teenager finds a diary of a shinigami (death god), and uses it to become god himself by killing villains and everyone who would stand in the way and his nemesis the brilliant L who tries everything to figure out who is this mysterious killer who could kill without stepping his feet outside. It was a fun anime and with only 37 episodes can be binge watched easily. Manga with around 108 chapters again makes for a wonderful read.
I personally have begun to dislike it with every person saying it is a godlike level anime whereas its okayish at best and the best part of the anime for me is only the first half until an event happens after which I was pretty much meh.
Rec? Watch it later
Spreading some positive vibes here today. A reminder that you're all wonderful people. I hope you're all having a pleasant weekend.

Two books related two distinct Royal Families in a row, October has been treating me well.
🔖BOOK- RED BLOOD, BLUE BLOOD AND THE ROYAL HEART
🔖WRITER- @arati__the_healer 🔖PUBLISHER- @kharagwaryaspublishing
Thank you @eccentric_mystic for organising a giveaway.
🔖MY TAKE- A book that will help you believe in spirituality and humanity.
🔖Reading experience- As commoners or Arati has mentioned, people of the red blood, we don't really come across the royals on a day to day basis. They are like celebrities but their life and lifestyle is a lot more private than them, which makes their life more mysterious.
In this book, Arati has discussed her personal journey from a poor livelihood to being loved by the Princess of Nepal as her own.
As a critic the book does have a lot of grammatical errors, sentence formation can be improved extensively and a few other loopholes but, but as a reader, the book is a display of someone's journey in life. The book is a booster to the self esteem of people who feel they have no place in this world or are forgotten by the God.
Arati has expressed her gratitude wholeheartedly and helped us realise that Royals are human too and some don't just possess a lot of wealth but a heart of gold too.
As a debut novel, Arati has expressed her heart out but can work on the loopholes and create more good books.
🔖Overall a good, crisp book for beginner readers.

Featuring one of my favourite reads of this year - Animal Farm by George Orwell.
This book is all about the injustice done to the animals in the name of freedom and it is so heart breaking! The characters and events are perfectly used to deliver a broader message about real-world issues, politics, power games and occurrences.
This is how politics happen. You preach that you know much more than others and make sure to show the goody-goody picture outside even though the situation might be pathetic and in turn take all the credits of the good work done. This book is an insight into how power corrupts.
I felt anger building inside my skin as I kept reading. It is a flawless satire on human beings.
George Orwell has done an amazing work here by writing a realistic present world.
"Twelve voices were shouting in anger, and they were all alike. No question, now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again: but already it was impossible to say which was which." THE END
P.S. Read this book. You won't be disappointed.
This is @runawaywithme98 and this is one of my short, quick and a brilliant read of this year which I guess every soul must read!
My Rating : ★★★★★[ IT by @stephenking ]
#QOTD : How do you get rid of reading slumps?
____Children are disappearing or getting brutally murdered from Derry Town.The killer or whatever it is,is very dangerous and yet to be caught.Seven kids form a group after getting stalked by a clown who they think is the one behind all of this. Bill is their by default group leader. And story is all about how they hunt whatever that creepy creature is.
____This book is one hell of a ride! Nostalgic Friendships,School Bullies, Family problems and everything about childhood friendships.The book starts with the most iconic scene of all the time where George, little brother of Stuttering Bill getting killed. Book is written with efforts and Stephen king's awesomeness. Scenes are described very beautifully. It didn't seem that horrific to me. Maybe because lack of imagination? This book's ending left me speechless and with tears. Let's talk about character development! It's one of those book that that have characters to die for. Their stories from their childhood and their present was being narrated simultaneously, which is quite a task, but Stephen did it with ease and in an interesting way. It's written so beautifully! Although the book gets very dark and disturbing in some parts. Stephen King is definitely my favorite author now. I suggest you to read this huge book and it is definitely worth your time.
°°°°| How should you read this book? |°°°°
This book can lead you to major reading slump if you are slow reader like me. I suggest you to read half of this book immediately then it will be easy for you to get in.
In my mind, they pierce.
At first, a decision, everything thrown off balance.
What followed, a world new;
Equal parts exciting;
And a hit right then;
Too different from others,
Laughed at and lonely.
And then, the distance;
From friends, from love.
Family stayed, right beside,
But I was too far already.
Another decision; And this time a bad one.
An impressionable mind - Worsened first by flattery, further by failure, Finally by bullying.
More failure, and finally at the lowest.
Kind parents, Knowing counsel;
And constant support, love from The One;
Pieces picked up,
With a little help and a lot of faith;
In self and in something divine.
The demons don't leave forever.
They're back when things are sad.
When control is lost.
When balance can't be found.
When someone is mean.
When someone is misunderstood.
But there's also hope.
And there's faith.
And there are days of only breathing in peace.
And there are days of laughing with joy.
And the story continues. 🌸

Today's post is dedicated to the most popular anime and manga of all time. It remains a fan favourite even after all these years and has the power if done correctly to gain the most TRP ever. It also inspired numerous anime and manga in the coming years and is literally a rollercoaster of action and comedy done right. It mixes past, present and future so wonderfully and the gadgets used are worth to die for!
With it spanning almost 520 chaps of manga, 800 episodes (in total) of anime, 19 movies, multiple games , Dragon Ball has been the very heart of the anime and manga world. With fans from all over the world ranging all age groups and translated into a lot of languages, Dragon Ball has become an important part of the Japanese history.
I myself have read the whole thing twice and laughed my butt off and bit my nails during the action scenes. The transformations blowing my mind and the dragon balls wanting me to wish something and Bulma's gadgets making me go crazy over inventions. The anime was fun to watch to except DBZ was so effing slow , Kai didnt have the bloodshed and well GT is ignored.
The sign in the pic is from Goku's shirt which he wears on the back while training with King Kai.
QOTD : Are you aware about manga and what is a manga in the first place? Any favs ?
Is this from where the word 'narcissism' comes from?
This is a prologue to the book The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho ( @paulocoelho ).
What can I say about this book, it's so beautiful, so beautiful that there are no words for it. .
I'm rereading this book because somewhere it assures you that one day even your dreams will come true, only that you shouldn't divert your concentration or take your vision off the spoon of oil (in the author's words). .
Question: What is that one book which you've read and go it again and again? .
Edit: Since this day is being celebrated as World Mental Health Day 2018, I would like to open the discussion on some books regarding mental health that have changed your perspective towards the topic, has been a learning experience, or has been a literary milestone for the entire society, such as Perkins Gilman's The Yellow Wallpaper, which is a short story written in the 1890s, about post partum depression and anxiety leading to insanity and mental instability. It talks about freedom of women's voice and expression and much much more.
How I wish I could feel fresh and vibrant like these flowers, but thanks to the Mumbai heat for depleting all my energy, I've been feeling fantastic. Not. 🙂🙃 Reading update: Slowly crawling through Go Set a Watchman and so far, it's not a favourite. I'm struggling to make some sense out of it. But I hope to persevere.
On the work front, I'm just trying not to die, with my students taking my voice box on a ride, and forcing me to have regular sips of hot beverages in this heat that's demanding me to soak myself in an ice bath instead. Life's a joy, right now!
Oh, but Durga Puja is just a few days away and my heart is doing the happy dance thinking of it.
Also, extremely unrelated picture. 😂 But I love this tiny little book to bits. 💖

Another gorgeous tale by this amazing woman! @divakarunichitra I'm her fan after I've read The Palace of Illusions.
I love this book solely because of the spices and their powers,their significance in human life.
This story is about Tilo who is a mistress of spices...she talks to them they talk back they comprise her world in the small shop she owns in America.
The spices cater to the problems of the immigrant Indians living in the States.
All works well until Tilo travels the forbidden path- she falls in love with the lonely American (as she calls him) the powers don't work,the spices disobey her...tides change and mishaps commence leading to disastrous consequences...read it to find out what happens!😉 What I love about this book?
The spices and their powers- Very well presented!
The detailed description of Tilo's stark feelings and unfulfilled dreams.
I wished the plot had something more than what it has!I missed the spark that I had felt in The Palace of Illusions.
I shouldn't be comparing but I craved for something that would stay back with me.
Did you know there was a movie based on this book too?
