Does d book deal with d eternal verities of life..d mystery of marriage... Is marriage d necessity of getting life-leased at all cost, a cardinal virtue, which generations of mothers teach. Is marriage a means of fulfilling one's romantic aspirations & d futility of imagining that life will conform to one's dreams? Why is there discrepancy between human desires & practical outcomes. ( life's appalling fiasco) Between d real & imagined life.... A Novel deals with d writer's mode of thought, d expression of his basic temperament & outlook..or is it just a rhetorical tool?? (Definitely/Maybe)

Poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings... recollected in tranquillity.. The success of the poem is determined not by how much the poet felt in writing it, but by how much the reader feels in reading it..... ...... ...... If ... it makes my whole body so warm ... I know that is writing free verse : like playing tennis with the net down... Poetry is simply the most beautiful, impressive and effective mode of saying... the art of uniting pleasure with truth...

It is a must read. His articulations are infectious - an imperative for writers in any form. His endeavour has created waves. A pioneering effort in truly understanding a much ignored genre... Ratchets things up a notch. Richly detailed scenes, immensely entertaining. I am simply fascinated by this book. It contains stuff that I knew nothing about. It is well worth reading. Excites the mind with parallels to experience. Faint note of hope for human nature.... Someone rare has written with the liveliest sense of life & the warmest, most authentic humour. So likeable... For this book I'd like to say --"Love or hate me, both are in my favour... If you love me, I'll always be in your heart... If you hate me, I'll always be in your mind" -- William Shakespeare...

Aha! Having proved his mettle, having touched our souls. He's going to establish himself as a writer of extra- ordinary scope. Has received critical acclaim for his methodical plots & meticulous research... Methinks, he has brought vividly to life a broad range of very different characters.. Working on another book, Janab ? Visible in literary circles ? A man of your stature there would be a host of people anxious to meet you all the time. People waiting in bookstores on autographing lines just to get a smile & a signature in a book ( I envy them).. I wonder, what made up the mystique.. was it that you wove a good tale or was it something more ??

She's fallen for him like a ton of bricks, & he's playing this game, hiding behind his walls. Maybe she's just in love with an illusion...... a fiction..... a dream. He should get the presidential award for bravery above & beyond the call of duty, in keeping her out of his life.. ... it's a beautiful feeling to be in love.

Her Turn : The Bath : a place of steamy solitude _ the keeper of secrets and soother of stresses. If the power shower is a functional sprint, a bath is a pleasurable amble...

Backpacker's curiosity about the world - loves travelling and fine wine - deadly combo.. Nothing opens our mind up like travel.. One should retain a childlike fascination for travel... Beautiful and unexplored destinations,.. experiencing the waterfalls and the pristine air quality of national parks, spot exotic wildlife in the rainforest.. The spectacular, unspoiled white sand beaches, the coastline with idyllic islands, lines of coconut trees and gorgeous aquamarine water for all sorts of water sports, diving, snorkelling.. The vibrant skyline of cities, the potpourri of cultural and natural wonders.. Enjoying the scenic route driving in a car observing the coastal plains with ocean views and incredible evening sunsets, watching The Sun turn amber and fade into the night.. ... Travelling needs slowness of time,.. time stands still, just lounging around, leave the guidebook behind, let there be the element of surprise in this over-informed world...appreciating the small things in life..revel in its glory.. Only when we step out of our comfort zone, can we explore and experience the world. It is easy to follow the well-made trail. But only a few can be bold enough to leave a trail of their own.. .. .

I recall reading that one thing common in most successful people is their eye for details, a sharp memory, and a genuine interest in people. He seems to have the right combination, for sure.. He exudes sexuality and supreme confidence..so positive and upbeat. Is the kind of person who is genuinely interested in people and their welfare. No wonder he is sooo successful in life. He is charm personified..with those mesmerising eyes..there is a kind of sincerity and kindness in his eyes... Am dazzled..It is something so deep, so pure and so genuine.. No man matches up to Him... My nerves are taut. There is a gleam of pride as I say this.. He has the grace to blush and I find that adorable. I have to stop myself from leaning into his neck and nuzzling him... .. You know, I prefer brain over brawn, he's unassuming and down-to-earth, like a lovable college professor.. His persona is one that commands respect.. ( To Sir With Love... )... He is an example on how to live a productive life. Mr Surve..am enamoured by him.. A dull aching...longing...
