Books of more than 10 pages would turn me off…., I am not a book fan or reading fan, especially the fiction novels. I rather go watch a movie and finish the damn story in 3 hours. I have never been faithful any book that has been thick with hundreds of pages, but havent missed out the Chicken Soup for the Soul, Who moved my Cheese, Short Histories of Everything, Power of Subconscious Mind and books that are giving me some direction to think and become a different person everytime a finished reading them. But NEVER the books that are some writers fantasy….

To this day I am constantly reminded of what I was missing out in life by the reading freaks….., yeah thats what I call them. My mom in law is read freak. She would not go off to sleep until she read The Times of India, The Mumbai Mirror, The Bombay Times, Loksatta and the small booklets that comes with it. She quite dislikes the fact that I dont read and just to prove it to her that her son has not really made such a bad choice, I have started reading. I started with the newspapers. What, newspapers are not so bad… yea, you get to read the same news you saw the previous night on TV. But I have more details than those who only sit in front of the idiot box!

I am currently reading ‘The White Tiger’ by Aravind Adiga. He has brought about the perspective of the poor people who make 2-3K per month, dont keep a penny for themselves and send all of it to their relatives in their village who either have little or no source of income(he refers poverty with the word ‘Darkness’). Will not talk about the book anymore…. but is worth a read.

I few days ago I discovered a shop near my office where you get good western/party wear and loads of good stuff. After I finished my buying, this owner of the shop asked me If read books and if I would like to read any from his collection. I dint want to tell him, no i dont read books! So i picked up this book ‘the White Tiger’. I am so glued to this book, I am actually reading each word and page of it…and am completely loyal to it!

Do catch it if you get a chance or take it from me… I can return it after a month!
