    Book review: Dan Brown’s Origin

    I’ve always enjoyed reading Dan Brown, right from the time I read Da Vinci Code. I know a lot of people went crazy questioning faith, questioning the book and more and it’s an argument I find pointless. However, it does remain that he is a good author. Since then I’ve caught up on a lot of his books particularly when Google Play or Amazon threw me some offers. So, when I spotted that Origin was ready for release, I pre-ordered it and it to be delivered to my kindle which is on its last legs. So what exactly is Dan Brown’s Origin about? Robert Langdon, Harvard professor of symbology and…

    Selling Books at ABC

    While making my last post, it completely slipped my mind about our visit to Appa Balwant Chowk in Pune to sell our MBA books. ABC is a well known place in Pune where you can pickup second hand books for MBA, engineering and other streams. There are several raddiwalas there who buy your old books and then resell them to eager buyers who can’t afford a brand new copy. Hence, every year ABC sees a stream of students dropping in with their old books. We joined this list of students to sell the books we collected in the past 20 months. Any money is good money!

    Two Movies in a Tiring Week

    This has been one really really killing week. Killing because in addition to work being non-stop and tiring and frustrating at times, I haven’t been keeping too well.

Watched Walk the Line last Sunday and Syriana on Friday. Work tended to be rather frustrating because once again my friend Murphy played his role to perfection. However I was satisfied by the end of the week, because we did manage to iron out a lot of bugs in…

    It’s Christmas Time!

    Finally, it’s Christmas! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! Been waiting anxiously for Christmas. Two reasons, one was because of the mass and party and two was to show off my sexy new jacket which Melody gifted me! Picked up two black ties from Big Bazaar, on my way home from work. Didn’t end up buying my black pant, so just used the one I have. On the downside, I had a feeling my voice was going. It has been slowly deteriorating over the past few days, and last night was the end. Today my voice is hoarse. I can’t talk too much. Much relief to my family 😉 The Mass Mass was fantastic.…
