The Best Reads Of December 2018


The last month of 2018 went by in a rush as did the whole of the year. Well, who cares about 2018? The Gregorian calendar! Despite having the Chinese New Year, and our own Indian celebrations of a new year, we follow this old Gregorian calendar. Greg who? Anyway, it doesn’t matter. Shouldn’t matter. Because […]

The Best Reads Of November 2018


A writer, they say, writes for an audience. We are supposed to be intrinsically vain. We are doomed if we have no audience. In today’s world, that audience has expanded to having a social media ‘following.’ Can you imagine how many more plays Shakespeare would have written if he had an audience on Instagram? Imagine […]

What I Read In October 2018


It’s that time of the year when you see ‘Top 10’ or ‘Top 100’ lists everywhere. I usually like these lists. I know. I know. I don’t sound like someone who likes listicles – but hey, I am a content manager, after all. How can I not love lists? It’s incredible, though, that this year […]

What I Read In September


Isn’t time just rolling its merry wand by? It’s hard to believe that in two months we will see the end of yet another year. Where would 2019 take us? Would this world that seems so chaotic this year finally settle into a beautiful eternal colored sky of peace? If I could describe my reading […]

What I Read In August


I read a lot more in August and I am surprised I did. When people ask me, “How do you read so much? Where do you find the time?” I am always puzzled. How does one “find” time? Time doesn’t exist. We all have these many hours to fill every day. What we do with […]

What I Read In July


As expected, I didn’t read as many books in July. Well, I know that 10 might be a great number to many, and I am so grateful that I was able to read as many, but there were too many things that led me to be distracted in a good, generous, happy way, and I […]

What I Read In June


My reading usually ends up taking a dip about this time of the year. For some reason, June and July are never my best reading months. Is it the glorious Bangalore weather? Shouldn’t be, because all that nip in the air should just make me want to cuddle deeper into my quilt, warm myself with […]

A Beautiful Friendship


From the time I can remember, I have loved to read. One of my favorite memories is of me coming back from school when I was about five or six years old, and sitting on this little ledge that overlooked our yard while my adopted sister pampered me with snacks. My best friend – a […]

What I Read In May


I enjoyed another good month of reading in May. Sometimes, I ask myself: Why do I read? Is it for pleasure? Is reading a mere hobby? Reading is not just a pastime to me.  Reading has evolved over the years to be a sounding tool for it’s from books that I understand the words and […]
