-Kendall Jenner

Nudes, mattes, glossy lipsticks are often in vogue and sometimes recede in the background. Despite this the lipstick is an imperative accessory in our make up kit.

Votes For Women Through Deeds Not Words

Emmeline Pankhurst was the face of women’s suffrage in Britain. She created the ‘suffragettes’ and was instrumental in getting women the right to vote

 

“We are here, not because we are law-breakers; we are here in our efforts to become law-makers.”

-Emmeline Pankhurst

In the 1860s at Manchester, Britain sat the Goulden family. This family of 12 were eating breakfast. The eldest amongst the 10 siblings, Emmeline was reading out the political supplement of the daily newspaper to her father.

At that point in time, universal suffrage had become a hot political topic. Many women and even a few men were demanding the British government to grant women the right to vote.

In the 19th century, under Queen Victoria, Britain was a superpower. The British Empire had strong holds in their colonies spanning the entire globe. Yet half of Britain’s population didn’t have a voice, that half were the women.

Books, books, books, life is so full of them. As long as they are around we are truly wealthy. Be it fiction, an encyclopaedia or just a dictionary; books are an expert with matters of the heart and the soul.

More often than not, we forget about these loyal companions and about the whirlwind romance we shared with books. Our hate for textbooks takes away most of our time. Occasionally a short reminder of an engaging novel takes us back into fantasyland. There is no greater sorrow than a completely read novel. You can’t experience the story again like its new and you can’t live in it any longer. Turning the last page in a book is like a slap in the face, the slap of reality. Don’t we all have a moment of silence after every book we finish? I know we all do.

In our haste to get the book read, there are some small elements that add to our experience which we miss. But when these elements are amiss, the situation is like reading with the Kindle; you read the book but you don’t get the general satisfaction of actually having read a book.

These are some of the hidden elements that make books, books. Read more about 4 Things That You Never Noticed In A Book
