TWILIGHT SERIES! DOES IT PRICK SOMEWHERE? Many kids of my age have started reading and now re-reading this series of books written by “Stephanie Meyer” namely Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn which have touched the platform of “National bestsellers” and have been pretty hyped as the heirs to Anne Rice and Harry Potter. Ok! First things first! I was too one of ‘these admirers’ of the “Twilight series”. But it’s now that I realize that it was really not worth it. Alright, alright before people just accuse me of being a bit jealous or whatever, I might just as well scuttle through some fine things about these books. They are rich in details of the emotions of each and every character. They are pretty well-written with some creative yet unique aspects and characteristics of the supernatural elements. Also, the back-stories of various characters are quite fascinating. There are spot-on allusions to other works as well. It is romantic indeed. One automatically feels a


I was going through my favorite book of quotations. And I happened to go through a quotation on love which seemed quite interesting to me. It goes like this- "To love someone is to isolate him from the world, wipe out every trace of him, dispossess him of his shadow, and drag him into a murderous future. It is to circle round the other like a dead star and absorb him into a black light." -Jean Baudrillard (1929-fatal strategies) Ahaaa!!! are right. It does seem to be real tragic or sorts of negative definition of love.i agree! You tend to limit yourself to your lover. Limit all your dreams and desires and ambitions. Your world starts revolving around just one person...his likes dislikes and accordingly, the adjustments you need to make in a relationship.suprisingly you even plan every second of yours according to his need...i.e.-when you both can talk, meet etc.i am talking abou

The English teacher

The English teacher,by R.K. Narayan . The whole book was a mess,and after reading it,the first thing i did was to restore it,the cover had peeled off.This book was printed in 1955,although it was first published a decade earlier.

The Kingdom...a compelling watch

Hi All, I had watched the movie 'The Kingdom' on TV a couple of weeks back and since then I have been itching to write a review/post about it. The movie started close to midnight and went on well past 1 am. The fact that I was glued to the idiot box all that time and didn’t even dare to switch channels, lest I miss a few seconds of the film, should be sufficient to convey the intensity of the movie. 'The Kingdom' is based on a semi fictional plot on the bombings of the residential quarters of foreign workers in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The blast leaves the many dead and several more injured. The America Diaspora is devastated and furious. It doesn’t help that the atrocity was carried out by men masquerading as Saudi policemen. The monarchy, understanding the gravity of the situation, promises action but at the same time utilizes ambiguous laws to prevent American sleuths from investigating this carnage. But remember this is an American movie and the Americans

A worthy Piece of Shit....

SO you ppl thought, that shit has no value on the planet, except perhaps to make bio gas? Well, Haaathi Chaap is an initiative by Mahima (as appears from the website) wherein, an elephant's poo is used to make paper and paper products. I strongly favor the need for such innovative ideas to make nature friendly products. Also, I have a strong belief in the dictum that nothing should be termed waste, ever. is the URL of the website. You must visit it 1) for knowing more about this fascinating process of converting dung into paper. 2) A lot of interesting trivia on elephant dung paper. These people claim that elephant dung can make great raw material for paper making. 3) The range of products looks quite interesting, but am not sure of their worth viz a viz the price. All in all a good site to visit and if you can lay your hands upon any of their products, please go ahead and support a good cause.
