Favourite Childhood Read: The Secret Seven

I lived in a colony with several small apartments almost all my life. My parents still live there and they keep telling me about all space that we had to play when I was a kid. And how all those spaces have been taken up by the sudden increase in the number of cars parked within….

Books From My Childhood

“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” ― Dr. Seuss, Happy Birthday to You!

Book Review: The Help by Kathryn Stockett

“The sun is bright but my eyes is wide open. I stand at the bus stop like I been doing for forty-odd years. In thirty minutes, my whole life’s… done. Maybe I ought to keep writing, not just for the paper, but something else, about all the people I know and the things I seen…

Book Review: Mistress by Anita Nair

“We have words for this flooding that can sweep away all other thoughts. Pleasure, longing, lust. We call it by so many names. It is human to do so. To give a name to everything and everybody, to classify and segregate. For only then we can measure the extent of this need to know, to…

Book Review: Gently Falls The Bakula by Sudha Murthy

“Initially men work for money but soon, money becomes unimportant. It is power. There is nothing like power. Power is like liquor. Once the intoxication of power catches hold of an ambitious person, there is no escape from it. It is a vicious circle. Like in a whirlpool, it is difficult to come out of…

It’s their mistake, not my failing.” ― Richard Feynman Calling Richard P. Feynman a “genius” would be the biggest understatement of the century. He was a man…

Book Review: The Circle by Dave Eggers

“Secrets Are Lies.   Sharing Is Caring.   Privacy Is Theft” When I finished reading The Circle by Dave Eggers it became evident that I was scared out of my wits for an hour. Dave Eggers’s narrative is immaculate. Perhaps it was the immaculacy that scared me silly. Perhaps. Or it might have been the…

Book Review: The Mind Readers by Lori Brighton

“The man sitting across from me at the cafe was thinking about murdering his wife. He imagined stabbing her and pretending like it was a robbery. Or perhaps, he thought, he’d take her hiking, push her off a cliff and say it was an accident; that she’d slipped. I wanted to tell him it wouldn’t…

The White Bear

When I was young, like most children, even I had an animal as my best friend. This animal was a small bear. He was given to me as a gift for my 1st birthday. Unlike most bears which are brown or black, mine was white with yellow paws. He had round back eyes and small…

A Life of Hope

There can be no life, without hope. Hope fills our mundane and mechanical life with things that will, maybe, make us happy someday. Something to look forward to in our little future. Some miracle that will make all the wrongs right and straighten out all the bad. It’s the one thing that make us look forward to…
