FACE EXPRESS (Communication That Connects)
A picture is worth a thousand words”, says a famous idiom in English language. Think, if an inanimate, lifeless PICTURE “is worth a thousand words”; wouldn’t a living, animated HUMAN FACE be “worth an ENCYCLOPAEDIA.”, claims the author of this book, Prof (Dr) SHALINI VERMA ‘Lifoholic’.
The book FACE EXPRESS endeavours to excite readers with its pictorial ‘mental image’ for the adjectives used day in and day out to describe characters in and around us – real or unreal, descriptive or imaginative, funny or sombre. For instance, your friend extols the divine serenity of her fiancé’s demeanour as ‘ecstatic’ and you wonder how an ‘ecstatic man’ looks like.
Your colleague derides the boss as a ‘deadpan’ and you keep imagining how a ‘deadpan’ looks like? Or, you hear the radio cricket commentator saying “…the ‘pallid’ body language of the captain says it all…” and you are perplexed about your favourite team’s winning possibilities.
