Head - Creative and Promos
dad was an avid reader and he was the one who introduced me to reading at a very
early age. We have a big library at our ancestral home and our tastes in books
are very similar. He had a huge collection of books in literature, fiction including
many American and British authors, and even some on anthropology. My taste
in books is very eclectic and I have a number of favourites."
Luis Borges is a great writer
favourite author is a South American author
Jorge Luis Borges. He worked as a librarian
and specialises in short stories. Among
my other favourites are French author
and philosopher Albert Camus and Milan
Camus' The Plague is a well written book on a plague epidemic in the
Algerian city of Oran. It is a deep metaphor about the way we live and about people
losing and gaining hope.
I find something interesting
in every book
I've hardly found a book that does not interest me except for a stray few that
might have put me off as the author made no effort to hold the reader's interest.
books are ridiculous
books are in itself a huge con deal. I find the concept very funny. Firstly, they
are constantly trying to sell the idea that people are not good enough, so there
is a huge pressure on people to buy their books.
to me, it is bull shit! I don't read them at all and do not recommend them to
anybody. In fact, I consider these books dangerous as they taint people's minds.
For example, people with psychological problems should visit a doctor rather than
reading self help books which end up making them feel even worse.
I used to spend a handsome amount on books
passion for books have led me to build my collection. I have a thousand odd books
at home. Earlier, I used to spend a handsome amount on books, but now I have cut
down on it. I literally have to be pulled out of a book or music store to resist
the urge to pick up more. However, I do pick up books when I travel and manage
to finish them in a day.
read four to five books at a time
present, I am reading a really weird book called, Die Blendung (Auto-da-Fé)
by a Bulgarian author - Canetti. Though bizarre, it has been written quite well
by this unknown writer.
read at least four to five books at a time. I keep jumping from one book to another
and a serious book takes ages for me to complete. Paperbacks, on the other hand,
are a fast read. I'm like an owl as I mostly read at night after 10:30 pm.
took me almost two years to complete my first book
I am occupied putting together a book of short stories. The book is all about
what happens in people's minds, their thought processes and dreams. It is more
on the psychological side and not quite a narrative.
title of the book is still undecided. I have been working on this book for the
last two years and haven't spoken much about it. Hoping to publish it soon, the
book is extremely important and close to my heart.
