    A Good Read...

    Want a good read? Pick up Anita Rau Badami's "The Hero's Walk." Very nicely done.

        Yea FYI, I'm sure. Thanks


        Kohalic, it's nicely done because it's close to life. It is about people whose lives don't turn out the way they hope or rather others hope for them. It's about making and breaking expectations. It mainly revolves around a man 'n his family located in a town near the Bay of Bengal and how they react to situations under pressure. And eventually how he comes to terms with a tragedy that's struck him in life. I thought it gave a glimpse of how the poor survive in a corrupted underdeveloped society and the many complications that exist in an indian family...
        Quite a few of the themes hit home so I think you'll like it

          yaar she meant "um,how" how as in how to read..

          I would suggest "Enlgish ki pehli kitaab" by this guy called Urdu Book Depot.., it has a really mesmerizing first chapter on A for ape-pul and B for bawl..

          remember to halt when you reach S for istop coz that means you gotta quit it..

          well, good luck..

            >>>It's about making and breaking expectations. <<<

            Is that any different from "God of small things"?

            Anyhow, "Great Expectations" is a good movie to watch with Gwyneth Paltrow and Robert De Niro in it.

              yeh, that 'Great Expectations' is a complete revamp of the original..a good movie in it's own right for sure, but the the original novel is really somethin..so simple yet so fascinating..
