“Life is like a rainbow. You need both the sun and the rain to make its color appear”

I guess Saturday made me a bit of greedy…and didn’t I say the other day I read…’greed is healthy’ 😉 …well I tried to and hence rushed Sunday morning the moment I got free with my domestic routine work and got out…on another drive!

“To greed, all nature is insufficient”

It was cloudy and all of a sudden started raining heavy…did I say that I love rains :D…well I do…in fact the only sad part is that …I can’t get wet in the rain…as I was driving…and already people look at me weirdly since they make out some how that I am not from the Bay area ;)…and hence I decided to go to the book store…Borders.

“Anyone who says sunshine brings happiness has never danced in the rain”

I remember whenever it used to rain…I used to make some excuse not to take any umbrella or raincoat with me…and thus gets a fair opportunity to get wet! Its different story that later I do get the scolding too from my mom. So you see life is not all that rosy as you think: D…. one has to pay taxes for everything…lol!

“A poet is someone who stands outside in the rain hoping to be struck by lightening”

When I used to come home with all my hair wet…my mom used to get worried for me getting cold etc and hence she used to dry my hair with the towel…and then she used to prepare ginger tea with hot pancakes or pakoras…and boy my favorite books used to be my company. I still remember my study table was near the window…and I often used to get lost outside …looking at those birds…that are freely chirping around and sitting on the bars of the window just to tell me…how unfortunate I am being tied up in my room!

“It is never too late to have a happy childhood” ~ Tom Robbins

Yesterday’s rain made me remember all that and I wanted to get some books that I have been suggested by one of my fan 😉 and my friend from Canada.
Guess what, @ Borders you have the café too…I went and searched for the books…grabbed a coffee and a oats n raisin cookie and in the cozy kids corner there was this kids chair where I sat and enjoyed my cookie, coffee and my book: D!!!

“A book is a gift you can open again and again” ~ Garrison Keillor

I couldn’t get ‘The Zahir’ ~ By Paulo Cohelo…which I am in desperate situation to read…as I was searching this on the net…I read a briefing about it and guess what…Paulo Cohelo is my favorite author …as I have read his Alchemist and Eleven Minutes too!

Some how I had an opportunity to get the book ‘Birdsong’ ~ Sebastian Faulks …believe me it’s a brilliant, harrowing tale of love and war…! I have only started…so it will have another post and another aftermath in this blog 😉

  3. I used to be a fan of Coelho..still like him…but somewhat I found his approach to life too simplistic..life is more complex than just following one’s dream..I decided not to read Zahir..and moved on to read kundera.

  10. Its a sad thing to know that someone who loves paulo’s work could not find it…Zaher is the expression of the great writer of our times to xpress the unearthed identity, which lies beneth our skins… and an effort to live up to our destinies…A hand book 4 someone who has lost his/her Essence…
