Sudu: Tappaytu Saar. Dont bother sending the list. My blog is mine. :)

Mishi: You really dont need any figuring out. But try leaving your name with your comment sometimes. ;)
Why a second bowling party? You guys could have done something else. But then I know you are a minority.

Sudarshan said...

You really thought I would send the list???!!!! Something's wrong with most of my light hearted comments...never mind.

So Viju how was Pather Dabi? Read some more english translation of his stories. Read any Tagore's works? Hey I also find 'Disgrace' to be an amazing book. It's so beautifully written. I have become a Coetzee fan. Currently read Anita Brookner's award winning 'Hotel du Lac'.Too good! Not perhaps in terms of the content but the language..just marvellous English. Read it.
