One of the things I am trying to get away to, from heat, humidity, noice, et al....B O O K S!!
1. The Immortals of Meluha - by Amish Tripathi
I was in a mood for some light reading. Hence, went by the strong reco by son & also observed the books by this author ( a triology!) were a big hit. The book has some good reviews by contemperory authors.
The book was written well. The script, language, the flow, etc very good. Quite 'un-puttable'! I finished it off very fast
But sadly, it is fiction ! It is not about Lord Shiva from Puranas. That was a dampener. I would rather read Siva Puranas ! Hence, not planning to read the other two books by the author.
PS : Picked up the book thru http://www.flipkart.com/. They continue to delight me with their great service.
2. Breakout Nations: In Pursuit of The Next Economic Miracles by Ruchir Sharma
PS : I have started reading the book. Great statistics & inference. Few funny comments also, such as Putin's dog, etc. BBC aired a brief interview with the author, Ruchir, this morning (30 May 12).
3. Apollonius - The Divine Magician by Charles DiFazio
This is the book I am currently reading. Very inspiring spiritual book about the Greek great master. He was revered 'adored as a divine incarnation...'
