Books

Childhood favourites: Books by Enid Blyton, and any books showing a fairy tale land and a fairy tale ending. Also books about life in boarding school, probably because I had a fascination for that life.

Other Books: Classics like David Copperfield by Charles Dickens and Tess of the D’Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy. Given a chance, I would read David Copperfield again and again.

Now reading

A compilation of Indian short stories by eminent writers in most of the regional Indian languages. This is the second volume, and I still have to get hold of the first one.

Why I Read?

For personal edification, for pleasure, and for a free ride to all those far-off places which I can probably not visit in my entire lifetime. Thanks to this hobby of mine, I know not only the names of all those far-off countries in the northern and the southern hemisphere, but also something about the culture, the way of life, the bent of mind of people, why they think in that particular way, the climate and the mode of dress of the people there, and of course, the interesting places there to visit. Who knows? I may even get a chance to visit them.

Recommendations

David Copperfield by Charles Dickens

I Dare by Kiran Bedi

The Bhagvad Gita

The Wooster series by P. G. Wodehouse

Message to students

Some books may seem very childish when we take them up the first time, but we have to understand that only when the book is easy to read and understand, will the interest to read be nurtured. So though the journey may begin slowly, persevere, and soon you will be lost in the world of books. It is true indeed, that books are a person’s best friends. They provide you with comfort and company even in solitude.
