It is many a day now, since I came to realize that being posted in the small town of Sahranpur in northern uttar pradesh was indeed a blessing in disguise for the likes of me. Its strategic location makes it just a car drive away from places like Rishikesh and its flowing rapids,dehradun and ...Read more

Atlas Shrugged is the astounding story of a man who said that he would stop the motor of the world -- and did. Tremendous in scope, breathtaking in its suspense, Atlas Shrugged stretches the boundaries further than any book I have ever read. On seeing a few of my friends reading this novel ov...Read more

'The Last Samurai' could well be to Japan what Braveheart was to Scotland. Both are big, blustering, battlefield epics, set within genuine historical events, but at the same time contorting that history almost beyond recognition in order to meet the demands of Hollywood. While both films make fo...Read more

This booker winner is a preposterous but utterly enchanting story about a young Indian boy adrift in a lifeboat with his good friend, a Bengal tiger, and some other zoo animals.
