A long delay!

Image037

Aboard Sachkand Express. Nanded-Amritsar. 

| I derive source for my writing from my

laziness, and       

observation! But, People…I am not getting time to be lazy! (lol) So many things, So little time!  And a pressure to prioritize, putting other things before blogging and many personal agendas.

Meanwhile, Journey allowed me to finish three novels.

The Kite Runner, Thousand Splendid Suns. Both by Khalid Hosseini and The Six Suspects by Vikash Swaroop(Q&A/Slumdog Millionaire fame). Latter one is a thriller based on real events, and movie rights for this has been already bought. Previous two, though, tells the tale of Afghanistan, but it has been done with such a beauty, that you get touched with all the facts, and you never think in the process! Both are masterpiece, by a master story teller! I can read them, a thousand times over!

Would return soon on the circuit! With a bang! till then, take care!

hi rajeev! i am a new reader though not a new person for you.. hope you remember...this is muskaan. i read all your blogs and they are all very good. you are an-almost dedicated blogger as your blogs have been more or less regularly written.
i would like to specially comment on a few blogs. first is the blog written on elections and voting - i share your view and appreciate that you wrote about such an important issue and in such a nice manner. second is the story- black rose. the beginning of the story was too good. this does not mean the rest was not, but yeah you seemed to loose grip of the plot as it moved on. none the less its very nice.
your write up on the woman who faced harrassement was also nice. although there was nothing special in the way it was written, the topic is so much prevelant that it demands firm responses.
you seem to be a very diversely active person. good to get to know you- even if only through what you write.

Oh God!! Your post is yet another reminder for me to read A Thousand Splendid Suns!!

I'm totally in love with the Kite Runner. The Six Suspects sounds like just the book I'd love to read. :)

So you travelling?? Have fun!!

Cheers
