About the Book:
As I am very particular about English spellings and pronunciations, my eyes ran accidently on the book titled ‘Soljer Soljer’ written by Colonel Mahip Singh Chadha. I was in my usual pet library scanning for the new books on the bookshelf. My eyes halted on this book title and I couldn’t digest myself. I thought about my daughters. Then suddenly something struck me. I immediately came home and consulted my dictionary. I discovered that according to the pronunciation key notes, the word ‘soldier’ has the letters ‘d’ and ‘i’ that are silent and instead ‘j’ is used when we pronounce the word. The author must have taken this annotation while giving the book title. Yes, I too sometimes refer the pronunciation notations while teaching the origins and spellings of English words to my daughters. However, after reading the book I found the story, plot, and the theme in particular quite different as well as interesting from the usual book.
