Hell (O)

Hello my dear readers. Life is so so hectic that it has been ages since I even opened a blog to read, let alone update it. It is late even as I write this, but I just had to write today. This is one of those of those days when the words in my heart and mind are in constant conflict to tumble out. This is a time when I just have to write something.....anything....as long as I write.

Since I have not posted anything on the other blog, let me write a post there.

As for life, its been busy. But happily, I am back to the reading habit. Been reading a lot lately, a Kannada play, a critique on liberty by John Stuart Mill and a racy, but very well written novel called `Shantaram' by Gregory Roberts. I did not have much hopes from this one but to my surprise, it is quite well written. His descriptions of India is quite insightful. I suppose it takes an outsider to notice and eulogise what for us is commonplace and prosaic.

I so desperately need to make more time to read. I feel like I am mentally starving myself!

"Shantharam" is an excellent book worth reading for everyone.This book gives a meaningful cultural insight into India.

I agree that blogging gets tough and gets dropped in the priority of things to do when life gets hectic. But blogging is a way of putting out a thought for the public - which in turn removes some of the stress in our daily lives. No matter how hectic my day is, I always make a point to read a book, write/read a blog and read a newspaper everyday.

Keep it going. And there are regular readers who lookforward to reading your blog!

its not that i dont blog because of the lack of time Arun. its more to do with access to internet. anyway, will try and update every few days.
