Why the hell do we call An Invading Mughal great.

A guy who is the descendant of two of the biggest mass murderer in history, had little respect for opponents or unarmed civilians (see:Panipat, Alwar, Mandu).

Why must I read in my text books the glorification of such a person.

Do we ever say that Queen Victoria is great???

Every Indian, regardless of his faith and creed, who made a significant contribution to history, ought to be given the deserved space and slot in our history books.

Of Curiosities, Updates and Blurbs
http://karencarlisle.purplefiles.net/2015/08/02/of-curiosities-updates-and-blurbs/

Chapters 11-15 are transcribed, with many edits and rewrites. 23171 words in ten days! Who'd have thunk it?

It is a strange thing to read a first draft (scribbled in November's NaNoWri, last year) and think did I write that? Gosh, so many adjectives dropped and repeats excised. I know I said I was going to limit myself to a simple transcription - no editing. No surprises - I did not. It would have been  a quicker task had I done so, but less productive.

I blame my study. This year I had earmarked to learn my craft. I have attended local writing classes/lectures almost every month. I found I could not sit on my hands (that would have made it impossible to type) and not add notes to help with my upcoming rewrites.

I am satisfied with the general story line. Phew.  I have insertion of missed clues, reordering - incident to consequence, removing repeats and removing unnecessary sections in some scenes and notes for improving characters. Names have started to consolidate. The big one (and I thank one of my reviewers of my Three Shorts eBook for the comment) was show not tell. I lost track of how many times I made that notation.  I even made notes for book 2 (and possibly book 3).

Here's the current blurb:

The Department of Curiosities. 
Book 1: For the Good of The Empire.

Under 25 words:
The Department of Curiosities is a steampunk tale of a heroine, mad scientists, traitors and secrets. All for the good of the Empire.

Blurb:
Miss Mathilda (Tilda) Meriwether has a secret. Actually, she has several. One of them has shaped her adult life. Another now controls it.
Her Majesty Queen Victoria has control of the Empire. She is the Empire - the creator of secrets.
Sir Avery works for The Department of Curiosities - the keepers of secrets - especially if they are useful to the Empire.
When Tilda finds herself in the employment of The Department of Curiosities, she realises this is the perfect opportunity to uncover the truth behind one of her secrets. But the Queen has other plans for her.

*

I suppose I should start thinking about the cover.

Travel World - Round the world $100,000 cruises target baby boomers!!

For years, the weeklong cruise has been a standard among vacationers. But these days, some who travel the high seas are taking their time.

Make that a lot of time.

A number of cruise lines are rolling out lengthy — as in three-to-six-month — itineraries, often with a global routing. Oceania Cruises, part of the Norwegian Cruise Line   family, just announced its fourth such itinerary — a 2017 cruise, dubbed “Around the World in 180 Days,” that will cover six continents, 36 countries and 98 ports of call during that time frame. Additionally, Regent Seven Seas Cruises, another line in the Norwegian family, announced earlier in July it was retuning to the around-the-world market after a hiatus of several years: Its 128-night “World Cruise” will also set sail in 2017. Regent officials say the sailing is already 75% booked.

This is in addition to other lines — Silverseas Cruises, Princess Cruises, Costa Cruises, Crystal Cruises, Holland America — that have their own sail-the-world offerings. There’s also Cunard, which says it pioneered the concept when it offered the first such cruise in 1922 — a 130-day journey that departed New York in November of that year. Cunard continues to offer global sojourns aboard its Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria ships.

This interest in global sailing ties in with the growing interest in cruising overall, say industry insiders and experts. Since 2009, the global cruise market has grown from 17.8 million to 22.1 million passengers, according to the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA). But it also speaks to the fact cruises are now especially attracting the adventurous and affluent baby boomer market as it heads into retirement. In other words, with their work years behind them, boomers now have time to travel, and global cruising fits their mind-set and doesn’t necessarily put too much of a dent in their wallet (depending on the cruise or the passenger’s bankroll).

Of course, it’s not necessarily cheap to cruise the world: Itineraries typically start in the mid to low five figures and can easily top $200,000 per person. But Oceania Cruises President Jason Montague says that global sails can actually be a “cost efficient” buy in that a vacationer might spend far more putting together the same extended itinerary traveling by air and staying in hotels. (The Oceania 2017 “Around the World in 180 Days” cruise runs anywhere from $40,000 to $125,000 per person.)

And to up the ante, cruise lines have thrown in additional perks on these extended journeys, including free Internet for the duration of the time on board. Oceania also added free medical care to its 180-day sail, a perk that clearly shows how the boomer market is the target demographic for these cruises, says Carolyn Spencer Brown, editor of the Cruise Critic website.

The medical care offer addresses “the one thing that active baby boomers worry about being away from home” for so long, says Brown.

Of course, not everyone (boomer or otherwise) might relish the idea of being stuck on a ship for half a year. Cruise line officials note that many of their around-the-world sails can be purchased in smaller segments that cost less. But for some travelers, bigger (or longer) is indeed better.

Take Karin Pollak, 60, who’s currently aboard an Oceania ship on a 180-day sailing. She says that once she and her husband, William, 75, get settled for an extended sail — the couple has done a 65-day cruise before — they follow a “well-honed routine” that includes enjoying the global ports of call but also finding plenty of time to read, knit, do crossword puzzles or watch “Mother Nature at sea.”

“We look at being on ship as if we are going to our vacation home,” she says.

Watch Queen Victoria's Empire Episode 3 Moral Crusade now on DocumentaryList.NET now! Click here http://goo.gl/8BH7r8  At the time of Queen Victoria's birth in 1819, England was an agrarian society. Within a few short decades it would be transformed into an industrial superpower, with an empire spanning the globe. Queen Victoria's Empire is both the story of this remarkable time, and an engaging portrait of a Queen who ruled over a one-fifth of the world's population. Personal accounts, lush reenactments, and evocative cinematography from former outposts of the Empire recount the dramatic clash of personalities and cultures that would drive Victoria's remarkable 64 year reign. Episode 3 The Moral Crusade - By 1861, Britain is the wealthiest and most powerful nation on earth. However, the death of Prince Albert weakens Victoria, and many of his political ideals fade from importance. David Livingstone's explorations of the African interior fascinate the British public. Disraeli and Gladstone battle for control of the British government and debate the course of empire. The purchase of the Suez Canal solidifies British presence in the Middle East, igniting a stampede for the colonization of Africa.

Click here http://goo.gl/Fy0fK0  Hitler's Favourite Royal covers the life of Prince Charles Edward, Queen Victoria's youngest grandchild, who was forced by his Grandmother to take up the Dukedom of Coburg in Germany after a series of unexpected deaths of uncles and cousins. With the advent of World War One, he reluctantly fought for the German army but refused to fight the British. However, once the war was over, he was stripped of his English titles. Disillusioned, he turned to far right politics and became an enthusiastic early supporter of the emergent Nazi Party and unwittingly helped in Hitler's rise to power.
