I had a sudden urge this week to read books written by Indian authors. So I searched on Wikipedia for the Best Indian Authors of 2011. I picked out few titles by random authors and made my way to the neighborhood library. To my disappointment, other than 'The Namesake' by Jhumpa Lahiri, not one book was readily available at my branch. :-(
So what do I do ? Request the librarian to order a copy from the main library and head out ?
Oh no no ! :) I ask her to order a copy and then wander about looking for other prospective pickup.
Leaving the library with nothing in hand and mind to read is a huge sin for me and my bedside book shelf.
It's a good thing that there is no limit on the number of books you can take at one time. :-)
|Read.. read... read....|
Any suggestions for good Indian reads?
The paints were inaugurated for use last week on a "Om" that I drew. :-)
The first time the drawing was free-hand done with the brush.
The next attempt was a detailed one. I searched for an authentic outline on the internet (like how the Indian mythological series show them).
|"Om" - The beginning and the end|
And then used the strokes of the brush to fill it up.
Nevertheless, both the attempts now adorn the sacred wall of the house. :-)
