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

It's been 10 years...

...since I last heard Willis Conover ! I managed to download a 2-minute live introduction to a jazz band by him today. It was divine hearing him after so many years. Old memories flooded my mind.

Searching for someone

I remember hearing a song by someone in a movie with Charlize Theron and Keanu Reeves as the protagonists. Charlize is a free-spirited girl who is terminally-ill while Keanu is an ambitious lawyer who is captivated by Charlize's ways. The most memorable thing about the movie, though, was the song. I tried to ferret some information about the song yesterday, and its unknown singer. Searched for Charlize Theron via Wikipedia . Browsed through her filmography and zeroed in on Sweet November (2001), which rung a bell. I didn't remember the name of the movie and hoped this was the one. Clicked on Sweet November . The plot confirmed my doubt! This was indeed the movie I was looking for. Searched for Sweet November via Yahoo! Music. Managed to find the original motion picture soundtrack. Clicked on the link . Found the list of tracks. There were 13. Now which one was I looking for? Visited Amazon and searched for Sweet November . Gotcha! The list of tracks, however, gave no in
