Books- My Inspiration

 It was my grandmother who introduced me to the world of books, a one which I entered at the age of 5.
 My BFFs are my books. The one thing that will never leave me alone, never let me down, never discourage me and always show me the right way.







My childhood years have belonged to many ; Enid Blyton's Famous Five, Carolyn Keene's Nancy Drew, Franklin Dixon's Hardy Boys. I was never a romantic person; suspense and crime has always captivated me.



As I grew older, I progressed from Nancy Drew(the amateur detective from River Heights who finds herself in the middle of every mystery) to Hercule Poirot(the small Belgian detective who always uses his famous "little gray cells").

Agatha Christie
She has a certain style of writing which hooks you on to the story, never once giving you the urge to put it down. I remember nights when I used to stay awake just to know the culprit.


How many ever books you read of Agatha Christie, you may never truly understand her as an author. Every book, every story, every chapter has a surprise.  After almost 5 years of reading her books, I think my observation skills have increased.



Some of Agatha Christie books that I have read :

  1. The 13 problems
  2. The ABC Murders
  3. A Murder is announced
  4. A Murder on the Orient Express
  5. The Murder at the Vicarage
  6. The Mousetrap






Moving on to Jeffrey Archer.
Family, business, money, love and relationships are the dominating factors of his works. The reader can connect with the people in Archer's books. Many times you feel that you  have come in contact with a person whose character is portrayed in his books.





His books are quite inspirational for both men and women in a way. It tells us what amount of hardwork it takes to become a successful person.


Some of Jeffery Archer's works that I have read :

  1. Sons Of Fortune
  2. Kane and Abel
  3. The Prodigal Daughter
  4. Only Time Will Tell
  5. Be Careful What You Wish For
  6. A Twist in the Tale




Then came Dan Brown.
Although some of his books have aroused controversies, one must appreciate the research he has done. It is exhaustive.

The hero, Robert Langdon is a Harvard University professor of religious iconology and symbology (a fictional field related to the study of historic symbols). How he manages to retain so much information is something beyond my understanding power. Hats off to the guy ! Finding patterns, seeing things later what were earlier hidden form view and understanding them is something which Mr. Langdon seems to be an expert at.

I have read 2 of his books so far

  1. Angels and Demons
  2. The Lost Symbol 


One advice before reading Dan Brown's books,
If you have a choice of more than 2 authors, go ahead and read the rest, because if you read Mr. Brown's books first, you will find the rest of your purchase extremely dull and lacking the punch. You just won't feel the adrenaline rush !

   HAPPY READING !!!

Sab Ganda Hai, Par Sab Dhandha Hai - Maha Govt Plot Twist

Everyone looks forward to weekends for the simple reason that they get to relax, unwind and recharge themselves for another hectic workweek. But not the Maharashtra Govt. Atleast not this weekend. In between Friday night and Saturday early morning, our State Govt proved to us that if they put their minds to getting something done, they will; even if it involves staying up post their working hours. Hail Politics and Self - Interest!
I guess it's pretty apparent by now what this writeup is going to be about. But no. I won't bore you with that anymore. Instead, I'll include a few links to help you catch up:

I just came to know ALL these products belong to HUL (Hindustan Unilever) and I'm shook

Two years ago my teacher sent the entire class on an assignment as part of our Principles of Marketing subject in which we had to visit different retail outlets and check which company manufactured them. I remember going to one such place with 3 other class mates, with Note Pad open in our phones and discreetly clicking pictures of all HUL products. It sort of felt weird at first because we had never done the picture clicking part before, but slowly got used to it as soon as we realized that the line of HUL products was just never ending. We submitted the assignment the next day and that was the end of the story.


But just yesterday, I opened the HUL website again as part of my semester  VI Logistics subject assignment (yes I do get homework even in TY!). I was surprised by the products that I saw.
