Bought!

Thanks to Jahnvee for the suggestion. It'll take me more than a year to complete this enormous book.

Or it'll be a good practice for you to start reading faster! I'm going to hit the library soon and start reading this book as well..been putting it off for over a year now. Oh and you're welcome!

Ma'am, I'm hurrying to complete An Equal Music by today. 80 pages to be covered...halfway through already. If the mission is accomplished-seems a definite possibility by extrapolation- it'll be a record!
Nope, A Suitable Boy should not be insulted by such frenzied reading! Seth deserves some respect. And the size of the new book is intimidating enough!
And how about buying the book? I'm pretty sure Seth's livelihood depends on the royalty he earns!

this reminds me of something it
was really sweet.
it was in the hindu newspaper ,
i don't remember exact stuff but
vikram seth or some author got a prize ,
some prestigious prize and he came up there with someone .
could u guess who?

no he did not come with his partner ,
i mean wife , lover or someone ,
he came up with his mom .
he was with her and it looked sweet .
there was a time when he got discouraged and his mother encouraged him .so he was pround of his mom ,
and his mom was pround of him.

anyway the author may not have been vikram seth , but he is a popular indian author , and did not look very old .writers should have beatiful thoughts , that person if he was vikram seth in the newspaper inspired me .

anyway , enjoy the book , i came upon here , saw pictures , read some blogs,
comments too and was about to leave silently when the thought of vikram seth came and i felt to leave a comment ,sorry for coming here a chance accident.

The year that was

I'm wearing a rather striking shirt, one that makes me feel like a clown fooling around in a graveyard. Roving eyes latch on to me and make me too conscious of myself. Checkered in red, grey, black and maroon, I've excused myself into donning it and looking silly for two reasons. It's Friday and…more importantly, the last working day of the year. Tailored half-a-year back, I never had the courage to wear it, not until today. It's that time of the year when it's time to reflect on the events that transpired. Last year ended on the worst possible note. Dad had expired and I was numb with shock. The repercussions rippled halfway thought this year. Things were so abysmal initially that I had lost the will to live. Acrid in everything I did, I was immensely angered by time phlegmatically flowing through its cadence. It was as if Dad meant nothing to anybody. What right did people have to live the way they always had when Dad was no more? Why was much of the world still

Post Christmas

The workday didn't have the sweetest of starts. After being made to wait for almost half-an-hour for breakfast in the cafeteria, I was told only when I enquired that there could be no omelette since the heater wasn't working properly. I lost my temper and aired my annoyance not because the heater was out-of-order but because I was needlessly made to wait for something that was just not about to happen. The onus was on them to intimate me and they failed to own up to their responsibility. I find this attitude very irksome. Anyway, the rest of the day was smooth sailing except for a minor glitch that had to be rectified just when I was about to head for lunch. The bay was mostly deserted since most of my colleagues had volunteered for a training. I'm self-taught...thus my being an exception to the mass exodus! Nilotpal is on a fortnight-long leave and I missed him dearly today.
