My Power Quote !

A good book on a rainy day is happiness for me - Ruskin Bond

Saturday, October 10, 2015


I already mentioned earlier that I am a bookworm.  In fact, I am not in this writing business for a large chunk of my life i.e. till 2011, though such instinct was in seed form since my childhood.  More than writing, I am a voracious reader. Books are my choicest friends.

 If you come to my home, my study  resembles a desk with more than 20  books at various stages of reading. In fact, it was my dream in childhood to read the world's greatest books.

The books reflect a merging traffic of both humanities and sciences. Any information that ignites reading would attract me and if it is gripping I indulge more and go to the bottom of things.  Sometimes, I forget that I am in a family atmosphere and hours melt away like a burning camphor.   The only complaint from family on me is of over-indulgence with books. But I am a helpless guy, because reading has gone to addictive levels.

I have a personal journal called Black Book where I use to document some deeply personal aspects of my life like   improvements needed, course of action required and lessons I learnt and health parameters I need to maintain.   Recently, I added a section called: The Best Books I read so far.
