New book to read.. After so long!

Thursday, June 27, 2013

So, in case you were living under a rock, you must have heard that Amazon has launched in India. I don’t know about you all, but I am super excited about this! I mean, I love buying stuff online, but more often than not, I am pretty disappointed with the service levels these guys offer!

By the way, do look for coupon codes etc by clicking here to get some additional discount on these websites!

Relatively, I have always been amazed with Amazon (US) website. I ordered my Kindle, as well as Xbox from the same! Super neat ordering, tracking and delivery! Comparatively, most of the Indian daily deals sites, which now offer products as well, sell near expiry date products for a discount!

Anyways, so yesterday evening, I was just browsing Amazon India website, and found Tuesdays With Morrie, by Mitch Albom! Ever since I read Five people you meet in heaven from Mitch, I have been looking forward to read other titles from the same author!

Mitch has a very different writing style compared to what I have been reading in the past! There is a certain combination of sadness, social message and philosophy in his books. From what I have heard about Tuesdays with Morrie, it is more or less based on real life incidents!

The book is based on meetings between Morrie Schwartz, a sociology prof of Mitch, and Mitch Albom, who at that time was a small time journalist! The discussions were mostly about life, and death - the two fundamental truths of human existence!

Will write a detailed review of the book as soon as I get some free time to open the packaging and read it! :D By the way, did you guys notice - even my recent WeChat entry is also written on the lines of Five people you meet in heaven! I guess Mitch Albom is kind of my favorite author these days! :)

Anyways, it has been so long I read and reviewed a proper book! Guess have to start applying to blogadda’s review program again or else, I will have to spend my own money on books! :P

Till then, adios amigos!

Raanjhanaa - Interesting Movie!

Monday, June 24, 2013

Like every movie ever made, Raanjhanaa had its own share of hits and misses. And, I must add, the wrongs were pretty bad goof-ups in my humble opinion. But still, a fine screenplay, some classy acting, and a heart-touching love story manages to hide the flaws under the carpet, and one comes out thoroughly amazed and at the same time confused individual.

WeChat with Anyone, Anywhere!

Saturday, June 15, 2013

So the other day, Mom, Sis and Mrs asked me to look at the WeChat contest on IndiBlogger, which they thought was interesting enough to take part in! And indeed, it was pretty different from the usual ones! So the objective of the contest is

If you could connect with 5 or more people in a WeChat group - who would they be, and why? What would you talk about? The people can be dead, alive or even fictional.
