A thousand splendid suns

A thousand splendid suns.. And one among them is Khaled Hosseini..

A beautiful story..rather a common one in any war front..
The story has a women face which adds to its beauty.Her emotions are yours also. You feel you are Mariam, you are Laila and you are the little Aziza..
Read and feel the book.. It is really touching.

The White Tiger

7 Indian nights.. :)
Well.. writing about 'The White Tiger'.. Still, I dont know how to conclude it on a review, as the story continues.. And it continues till the end of B'lore or the end of India or the end of everything good. Or everything bad? Still I'm not sure..
It's very much a story of today. And today's stories are not fairy tales, they are rather epics.. Each man's journey from Darkness to Light is an epic. Is it Light?
Anyway, one is "excused" after cutting one's master's throat, only because he was able to get hold of the "red bag" of his master.
Corruption. Corruption is the mathra of today's India. Corrupted to its root. From sweeper to minister, from havildar to IG, every level of India was,is and will be corupted. Well.. India doesnt know how to live without being corrupted.. So let's make a moral deal..
And Adiga is far ahead saying that India's revolution will have to come from somewhere else, not from her innerself..
