A cornucopia of enthralling tales that immortalize the memories of experience lived in varied parts of the world awaits readers within the pages of author Subba Rao' s newest book. "Dolphin Nose" (published by Xlibris), Rao's third title, exposes his light-hearted observations of life from the events and incidents of both present and past; producing an exquisite collection of lessons that aims to inspire and entertain.

Through the narration of Juggernaut, Rao shares whimsical and jovial tales based on his thoughts and observations of life. His perspective is rich, astute and full of reflective insights that grace the readers with quotable life lessons. As per the world events, the best he could do was to come out with his own list of wishful thinking. He ponders on many pointless pursuits in life, all presented with light humor.

The dominant influence of diverse cultures spices up Rao's portrayal of every unique character. He takes readers through the beguiling terrains of India, the azure Caribbean and the land of freedom that is the United States. "Without looking at the events from the past and learning from it," Rao believes, "one cannot move forward." Through his eccentric approach in writing, he hopes to create a comforting reprieve from the ills of existence and inspire readers to look at life in a new light.
