We miss you Bua Ji and Fufa Ji...you will be in our hearts always...
I started this blog one year back on Sept. 28th. Happy Anniversary to my blog. :D
When I started, I had no idea what I was going to write. Then I just wrote whatever came to my mind. I realize that this blog has become more about books than my life. That is okay as I love books very much.
So far I have written 52 entries and this will be my 53th!!
Well...here is something about me.
On the 24th, I went to the library and when I got there, I was told that a study room was not available as they were all reserved for literacy tutors. I was also told to check back in 10-15 min. to see if any rooms become available, which might be due to the tutor not showing up. I thought, "Great...Now I have to sit out in the open and listen to bunch of high schoolers squeal, talk, and laugh." So I decided to sit on one of the tables that were located between two rows of books. I got to the table and put my stuff down. Then suddenly I was distracted. I was distracted by comic BOOKS. I thought, "Oh yay!! They have new Calvin and Hobbes Comic books, and few more. I will only spend few minutes on looking at them." This is kind of sad that I go to the library to STUDY but I am distracted by books. I am such a nerd...
See...this entry is even about books...
Time to get back to work.
P.S. This is my 51st blog entry...Yay for half-century!!!
I saw this on Orkut and thought it was too cute...
9/10/09 - I like today's Ort of the Day too...Here it is:
As you can see, we had fun. I wouldn't mind going again. Actually I am looking forward to it.
Then we went to the water park. I thought it was a bad idea to go to outdoor water park due to the heat and finally my parents decided that it would be best if we go to an indoor water park. We went to Water park at The Village. I think the website has a good video and gives an idea how the place was. That was my first ever trip to a "proper" water park. I have been to Sea World in San Antonio and there were water rides there. We also went to Disney World in Florida.
The overall trip was fun. It was my mini-vacation. Until next time or I should say, until next book... :P
Mr. Ali opens a marriage bureau after this retirement. Initially the business is slow, but it starts to flourish, he hires an assistant named Aruna. It turns out she has her own problems regarding her own marriage. One of the clients of Mr. Ali's falls for Aruna and proposes to her. I will leave it to that. I won't say what happens after that.
I felt that the author did a great job capturing the marriage process. The times are changing and more and more people are having love marriages. However, arrange marriage is still the norm in India. Farahad Zama explained the ceremonies as well, which I liked. One more thing that I admired about his writing was the fact that he covered different societies of India without any bias. At least I thought there was no bias in his writing. I have read books where the authors favored one category of people over the other. Biggest example of bias toward characters would be E.M. Forster and his novel, A Passage to India, which I read in 12th grade.
Anyways, for me this book receives 8.5 out of 10.
