Perfect valentine gift – The Love Hypothesis – The Bloggers League 2022

Love stories are dicey...they can either make you go weak in the knees or turn out to be just another run of the mill. The biggest turn off for me in a love story is when you can see it coming, which happens with most romances I read (blame it on the innumerable love stories …

Must read audio books – The Bloggers League 2022

First up...a confession...I have been a purist for the longest time I remember. If I couldnt hold a book in my hands, smell the pages, I did not enjoy reading. I read an audio book when they were just catching on and I found it underwhelming. But 2021 changed my perception completely. I have come …

To Dare or not to Dare – The Bloggers League 2022

A couple of years ago I read Sheryl Sandberg's Lean In. A great book and I highly recommend it. I wrote a raving review about the book in this very blog - https://bookhippo.wordpress.com/2018/11/28/lean-in-book-review/ There was a question though in the book that stayed with me, a question I unsuccessfully tried finding an answer to...'What would …

One cannot ignore bollywood... Can one? Lets accept it, dont we …

Since we have been talking about friendships can love be far behind? We have so many examples of friends falling in love... Monica - Chandler and Rachel - Ross from Friends, Nick and Jess from New Girl and dont forget a certain Mr. Barjatia who had warned us long ago (read Maine Pyar Kiya). So …

Good friends, Great friends #famouslines #A2ZChallenge #BlogchatterAtoZ

When talking about friendships how can you not think about the women of Wisteria Lane... Yess.. I am talking about the Desperate Housewives. Remember Gabriele, Bree, Lynette and Susan? This remains one of my favourite series on female friendships. But have you noticed that films and series on female friendships are so few and far …

For you, a thousand times over #famouslines #A2ZChallenge #BlogChatterA2Z

Khalid Hosseini is one of my favourite authors. The pathos and poignancy that he brings to his novels is heart breakingly beautiful. I remember a friend of mine once telling me about ‘A Thousand Splendid Suns is', that it will break your heart into a thousand pieces. She couldn’t have described it better.  In fact, …

Elementary #famousline #A2ZChallenge #BlogchatterA2Z

Okay, admittedly, my fandom continues. From Satyajit Ray to Sherlock Holmes. I was introduced to Sherlock Holmes when I was in the 3rd or the 4th standard, the book, The Hound Of Baskervilles. The description of the hound in the book still manages to send a chill down my spine. In fact I realize that …

Dori dhore maro taan #famouslines #A2ZChallenge #BlogchatterA2Z

I am an ardent Satyajit Ray fan. I have seen all his movies, not just once but many times over. I wonder if we will ever have another writer-director-storyteller of his league ever in this country and NO, I am not exaggerating. If you have seen any of his works you would know. While there …
