Description: Aisha Chaudhary was born with S. C. I. D (severe combined immune deficiency) and underwent a bone marrow transplant when she was 6 months old. She lives in New Delhi, where she was born. 2014 was a brutal year for Aisha as her disease progressed and her lungs started giving up on her. The last few months of the year felt like a roller coaster ride, one that seemed to be mostly going down. Spending almost all her time lying in bed, Aisha wrote down her thoughts to get some relief, to get them out of her head. Aisha's life is not anything like the average life of an urban teenager, but she has experienced a lifetime of emotions; life and death, fear and anger, love and hate, the depths of utter sorrow and the happiest one can be. In My Little Epiphanies she takes a hard look at her own feelings and what it was that gave her a sense of hope and control. This book gave her life purpose and meaning, something to hold on to. Sometimes Aisha's little epiphanies have morphed into doodles that capture what was going on in her mind as her destiny played itself out. Through the book she wants the world to understand her unusual life and she hopes that it will inspire others, going through similar hardships, to find peace.

Big Capital


Category: Diy
Description: The inside story of London's housing crisis, by the award-winning author of Ground Control London is facing the worst housing crisis in modern times, with knock-on effects for the rest of the UK. Despite the desperate shortage of housing, tens, perhaps hundreds of thousands of affordable homes are being pulled down, replaced by luxury apartments aimed at foreign investors. In this ideological war, housing is no longer considered a public good. Instead, only market solutions are considered - and these respond to the needs of global capital, rather than the needs of ordinary people. In politically uncertain times, the housing crisis has become a key driver creating and fuelling the inequalities of a divided nation. Anna Minton cuts through the complexities, jargon and spin to give a clear-sighted account of how we got into this mess and how we can get out of it.
