      No, not much time to think over such question where many get really hypocritical😉

    How come everyone can guess the time so accurately?

    • September 17, 2009 6:42 am

      It is perhaps we keep checking the clock time and again and not just that we tend to remember the time too😛

    Arvinda Adiga’s the White Tiger .. hmm .. I’ve read quite a few reviews about the book and the writer’s quite a revelation. This book’s on my ‘to buy’ list. I’ve got interesting comparisons in mind of Arvinda and a Pakistani young writer Ali Sethi whose first book ‘The wish maker’ has just been published. I’m desperate to read both of em.

    Gibran’s one of my favorite names; my 3 months old nephew is Gibran and one of my favorite writers is Kahlil Gibran🙂

      The White Tiger is a Booker prize winner novel. It is quite engaging and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

      I have read about Ali Sethi’s novel. But haven’t read any reviews as such… so I don’t know what to expect from it. Besides I am really careful buying books by Pakistani authors that have been reviewed by the Pakistani newspapers. Because usually it lets you down. Although Mohsin Hamid’s ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’ was short-listed for the Booker prize but I didn’t like it as such. I enjoyed his first novel more.

      There is another writer ‘Daniyal Mueenuddin’ who last year came with his anthology of short stories ‘In other rooms, other wonders’. I did read a couple of stories. He writes well and received really wonderful reviews from the Western critics.

      I’d like to read him!

    Hmm .. incidentally, I’ve read the interviews of both Daniyal Mueenuddin and Ali Sethi in different publications of The News On Sunday. Yes, Daniyal’s book’s been rated very highly in a few reviews. My ‘to read list’ is a huge one; I seriously need some time management to start my reading. Hopefully the eid vacations would do it for me.

      Just posted my wish cum ‘to read list’. I really want to get hold of these books and read them asap!🙂
