Franz Kafka- For whom only weird was normal!

I am a cage, in search of a bird. – Franz Kafka Of late, I read one of the most influential, talked about writers of twentieth century – Franz Kafka! Now, the most important (this importance is solely for my personal reasons) and interesting fact about Kafka that I became aware of the moment I…

Review Time of 3 Brilliant Works!

So, here is to the brilliancy that I enjoyed and lived with during past few days. Unaccustomed Earth (starting with my favorite of three) Wasn’t it terrible that after all the work one put into finding a person to spend one’s life with, after making a family with that person, even in spite of missing that…

Reading a Classic was indeed a Classic experience!

“Character isn’t cut in marble – it is not something solid and unalterable. It’s something living and changing, and may become diseased as our bodies do.“ -George Eliot (Middlemarch) Writing is never a full-time fun and pleasant job, and this I had accepted long time back; but lately I realized reading is neither. Oh yes!…

Let’s talk about ‘The’ King, Stephen King, and his Memoir

What do we ideally do when we want to read a writer’s work for the first time, especially if it’s fiction writer we’re talking about? We go about his/her bestsellers or the top rated novel or work suggested by some creditable reader and venture off to a journey with this new fellow. Right? At least,…

Have you ever read Khaled Hosseini?

 “For you, a thousand times over.” “One could not count the moons that shimmer on her roofs, or the thousand splendid suns that hide behind her walls.” “I now know that some people feel unhappiness the way others love: privately, intensely, and without recourse.” So what these all quotes are for? And more importantly whose…

Did you start Reading first or Writing?

Who or what came first – Hen or egg? Oh yeah! What an idiotic question? Egg and hen. How did they even qualify to have few words dedicated to them in a write-up cleverly woven around reading and writing, let alone starting this post? Is the title just a bait to catch your attention, you…

Does what you write reflect you?

Trial that we started four days back is beginning towards its end today. If you missed the last session, you can have a look at Do we become what we read? Let the final session of trial begin. The subject in question is – Does what we write reflect us? Truth be told – No, not completely….

Do we become what we read?

You become what you read. You write what you are. Is it really so? My thoughts are quite reluctant to agree with it. In fact, they, my thoughts, are red-blooded to hit the trial box of courtroom to justify themselves. So, the subject in question is ‘Does what we read shape us? And what we…

Lover of BLUES!

How did I even make this far? I mean how could God be this insane to let a human like me get through these many years? Twenty two years aren’t any less. When you do nothing but daydream about your beautiful future the whole day, or just keep on lying on your bed fantasizing about…
