  Tiger Hills by Sarita Mandanna

  

The lustrous, epic debut novel about the undeniable pull of the heart’s affections.

As the first girl born to the Nachimada family in over 60 years, the beautiful Devi is the object of adoration of her entire family. Strong-willed and confident, she befriends the shy Devanna, a young boy whose mother has died under tragic circumstances. The two quickly become inseparable, until Devi meets Machu the tiger killer, a hunter of great repute and a man of much honour and pride. It is this tangled relationship among the three that leads to a devastating tragedy—an event that forever changes their fates and has unforeseen and far-reaching consequences for generations to come.

“More than a love story, Tiger Hills explores the hazardous side of passion and the shackling grip of memory once love has been thwarted. It also vividly evokes Coorg itself—the coffee plantations, the European settlers, the age-old clans—offering an illuminating portrait of place through six decades of social change.”—New York Times

  Romantic pain causes physical pain

To die from a broken heart. Love hurts. Oh such a painful loss. You probably have your own sayings which portray love or the problems of love as somehow being equated to physical pain. Leave it up to the researchers to finally get around to testing this supposedly figurative use of the word "pain" and discover that a romantic breakup can activate areas of our brains associated with pain. You may not be experiencing pain in the same sense as being physically hurt, but the pain you feel has similar characteristics. Yes, it hurts, but it is truly "all in your head".

  Bring the British North America Act back to Canada for display



BringBackTheAct.ca
is national, grassroots movement launched by a group of Canadians from all walks of life. It is asking Canadians to support a petition to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the British government to return to Canada the British North America Act – Canada’s *original* Constitution – in time for its 150th anniversary celebrations in Charlottetown 2014, and Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017.

The campaign is the brainchild of Lori Abittan, President and CEO of Multimedia Nova Corporation. Her 52-week Canadian civic literacy/history series The Canadian Experience (http://www.cdnexperience.ca) now running in over 70 multicultural publications (including the Oye Times!), was the inspiration to launch BringBackTheAct.ca to invite all Canadians to help gain access to the basic documents which are the foundation of our nationhood. To enable such historical documents to be entrusted to the Canadian Government and displayed for all Canadians to see will represent the last step Canada takes to finally ‘repatriate’ our Constitution.

Click HERE to sign the petition. It only takes one minute.
