              Much has been written about explorer Ernest Shackleton's three courageous expeditions to the Antarctic. What is not so well-known is the crucial role that Captain Frank Worsley played in saving the lives of the crew of Endurance after it got stuck in ice floes and broke apart dur...ing the attempt to traverse the Continent in 1914. After abandoning their ship, in the Weddell Sea, Frank led marches across the ice in the hope of reaching land. When their ice flow split, endangering all their lives, the survivors boarded three small lifeboats. Frank navigated them to Elephant Island during a terrific storm. When they found the island uninhabited, Frank led a six-man rescue party 1300 kilometres overland to a whaling station in South Georgia. Without his precise navigation skills and incredible determination, the rescue party would never have made it. One day after reaching the whaling station, he set out again to go back and rescue the other members of the lifeboat party.

              A feminist superhero epic, Shakti is a story packed with magic, darkness, pain, dreams, superpowers, laughter and light. Your Power. Our Rules. Amid a political climate of right-wing, Hindu nationalist leadership, three very different women in the city of Calcutta, India, find th...emselves gifted with magical powers that match their wildest dreams. There is just one catch- the gifts come with a Faustian price. With unforgettable heroines and at an irresistible pace, Shakti unfolds a world of as much courage as there is darkness, and a journey across a country in the throes of profound transformation, bringing to light the incredible secrets, longings, wounds and strengths of many human hearts. 'He revels in the kind of noir-ish realism which works brilliantly for a Murakami or an Auster, while sharing their predilection for the surreal . . . Since his dazzling debut, Chakraborti has embarked on one of the most interesting career trajectories seen in recent times.' - The Sunday Guardian, India. 'Chakraborti possesses the gift of good storytelling.' - The Telegraph, India.
