I really don’t understand the weather of Delhi. Its quite unpredictable and contradictory these days, like the city itself, as far as my personal experience goes. For a week, the Sun has been on a hide and seek spree among the clouds which have showered intermittently in their own mood. Western disturbances, the weather man says.

Careless winds blowing across my room making an intruding entry through a couple of windows lay open for daylight to enter. Curtains abiding by the each gust of wind meekly lifting up to make passage. And a beam of light gushes inside for that moment. The temperature is 20°C ish something. A lovely weather to hang out.  🙂

ps. Gonna be more regular in posting here. I post here when i ‘think’, else I am just wasting my days involved in meaningless shitty things, killing time.

And just a lesson to self. No matter how shitty situation you are in never never never… give up.

Reading English, August

Yesterday eve, while returning back home I persuaded myself to have a look at the second hand book market that is set up just opposite the road each sunday, but haven’t been to since I moved here.
I was late, it was five and the vendors were wrapping up their spread, stacking the used books neatly into cartons.

Combing aimlessly at the heaps of some relatively new and others badly tattered books, I came across English, August(An Indian Story, Upamanyu Chatterjee); one I was longing to read for sometime. Besides that, I mindlessly bought a book for vocab practice(I will use it, really?). There were many others titles I fancied to read, but exercised restrain, financial excursions. Though I managed not to get a good deal for the couple of books I bought. I suck, at bargaining.

On the copy of English, August the name of previous owner was written in an artistic scribble dated 10/10/95. It gives a good feeling to wonder in which context and manner how the previous owner read the book. And in future if it comes down to someone else how they will look at it.

Expended my day reading the English, August, till now I have got past only 60 pages only, it has 288.

Now I am aching to see the movie based on this novel by same name.
