Two weeks since my last post! My posts have become quite rare these days! Not that I have much of a fan following to keep happy, but still. I am a worse critic of myself than any one you could possibly get!

Just finished the Da Vinci Code. Have been investing a LOT in books these days! recently bought the Da Vinci Code, Three Men in a Boat, The Agony & the Ecstasy, Wuthering Heights. All this week. Each day I visit Landmark, ostensibly to buy a card for Appa & Amma or Priya or Suresh. But each day, end up buying a book for myself.

Today is Suresh’s birthday, so I got him a really cute little fan- its shaped like an aeroplane, and is about 6 inches tall. You switch it on, and it actually buzzes like an aeroplane! Its damn cool! And produces decent wind also. Also got a nice big cake. and a card. And naturally, a book for myself! Somebody ought to keep me away from Landmark.

Looog time since my last post…

But too many activities, and too little time, not to mention, lack of access to an internet enabled computer! There was a new project for me, a week-long trip to calcutta, a weekend visit to Bangalore…

Cal was on account of Suresh’s exam- so it couldnt even count as a vacation! Its only contribution has been a huge dent in my savings! Managed to finish the Great Indian Novel while out there- and I did not find it ALL that great. Its a good book. But not a masterpiece, right? Gives a great perspective of Indian history- but it doestn really introduce one to anything new, does it? I liked it. But not as much as I had expected to. Probably, I heard too many good things about it. And, this idea of history repeating itself is not something I find really new.

Reading ‘Tis by Frank McCourt now. Now, thats a great book! It has atmosphere. You almost experience Ireland in the early-mid 20th century. The life of a dirt-poor irish immigrant in New York. ‘Tis is the sequel to “Angela’s Ashes”- and that was really good, too! The author sub-titles ‘Tis as “A Memoir”- I really wonder if he maintained a diary or something- otherwise, how could he actually remember what he felt at different points of time in life??

Got to go now- and hey, My cell’s back! same number, so you guys can have the priviledge of being able to call me! :))
