The Discovery of Perry Mason

Friday 7.11.08
I read a comment on this blog in which fellow blogger vedang suggested a fiction character called Perry Mason.
Now, Mystery happens to be my fav genre and i have read innumerable books and authors and never heard or read about Erle Stanley Gardner the creator of this character we are talking about.
But from past month or so I have been hearing a lot about this author.
And to my great surprise when i was browsing through my fav bookstore;s shelves in the afternoon, for the first time in years i saw a huge stack of the Perry Mason's series.
Impulisvely i picked it up, and as of now i have finished reading the case of negligent nymph.
Its been a very very intresting dicovery for me.
I feel, a purpose of creating this blog is now being accomplished atleast for me.
Just few weeks ago, i bought and read, the count of Monte Cristo as i had read about it, on this blog.
Aneesh had written a very encouraging about the book, and although i dont enjoy reading classics much, I tried it and it was a good experience.
And now, thanks to Vedang and Akansha [who at first mentioned Perry Mason] I found one more very important aspect of crime novels.
The voting on this blog cleary suggests that few months along the line this blog will have to be shut down, but somehow i am glad some knowledge has indeed been gained.
Afterall that was my purpose

Does India Need communal parties?

I think, it was Tan's post on this blog itself, Republic Day Event, where this question was raised. My answer. YES. we need communal parties even in Independent, Secular India. Now let me take you, back to events before 1947. When India was a colony of the British Empire. The congress party, in its attempt to gain momentum for the independence movement, heavily used Hinduism, an example of which is the famous Ganesh Utsav held in Mumbai every year. Who complains? No one. But at that time, due to various policies of the congress, Muslims started feeling alienated. Jinnah, in these times, got stubborn over the need of Pakistan and he did find a lot of supporters. Congress, up till late 1940's never got bothered by it. And why should we? Who complains? No one. But there were repercussions. The way people were butchered and slaughtered during that brief time when India got partitioned, was even worse than a civil war scenario. All in the name of religion. And there indeed
