A week’s break..

Yeah, I won’t be blogging for a week. Am leaving tonight for XL interview.

Lets see how my interview goes? Am not exactly a bundle of nerves, but a tad apprehensive. I’ll just take the interview as it comes and try my best to guide the interviewer to my fav topics. Else I always have the answer, “I don’t know….” 🙂 Hope I do well!!

Yesterday was great, with the trip to Runway-9 and all other things. Will post in detail about it later, when I am back.

Books

Just two days back I had went with Vidit to buy some novels, I liked almost all the books but why the hell are books so expensive?? So that day I reframed my resolution; earlier it was to devote a month’s salary every year to buy books. Now it is to use up 15-20% of all money I make to be splurged on books.

The list of books I’d like to have:
(I’m just putting up the name of the authors since I want all their books)

  • Jeffrey Archer
  • Arthur Hailey
  • John Grisham
  • Alistair Maclean
  • Agatha Christie
  • Michael Crichton
  • Arthur Conan Doyle (I have this 🙂 Yeah all of them…)
  • Mario Puzo
  • Dan Brown (I’m not sure about this, since I’ve read only one book)

And then Biographies and Autobiographies of:

  • Boris Becker
  • Louis Armstrong
  • Sachin Tendulkar
  • APJ Abdul Kalam
  • M.K. Gandhi
  • Hitler
  • Lee Iocacca
  • J.F. Welch
  • and many more people…

There were some other books, the names of which I don’t remember. But I’ll buy all of them someday…
If I have forgotten any good writer or some good book, do remind me.

Which one shall I follow ??

“Laziness is the worst enemy of humans. . . “
– Jawaharlal Nehru

“Humans should learn to love even their worst enemies…!!!”
– Mahatma Gandhi

Since both are great people, I think I’ll follow both of them and I’ll love laziness. Wait a sec, ain’t I lazy already??

Review –> Yeopgijeogin geunyeo

What is this movie that I am talking about ? Well it is “My Sassy Girl”. One of the most romantic movies I’ve seen. It is a Korean movie and I watched it with sub-titles.

The movie starts with the hero being forced to help the drunk heroine and going to the jail in doing so. The next night he again stumbles into her and gets very intrigued by her. They become friends and slowly their friendship blossoms. The movie which was going more like a comedy till now, evolves into a romantic movie. Ok, I agree by reading this you would be thinking, “So what is special about this?”. This is like any other romantic movie. But what is unlike any other movie here is the heroine. She says what she believes in. She is brash, she is rude, she slaps the hero around, she writes wacky stories and expects the hero to read and praise them, she exchanges her high heels with the hero’s sneakers, she wants to know the depth of the lake and so pushes the hero in. But she is also vulnerable and is very sweet. Just for the sake of heroine I can watch the movie many times more.

One of the better romantic movies. A must see. Right up there with “A Walk to Remember”..

Mid Sems

Exams are invigorating!! (I think I got the spelling right, Vidit corrected me, I was about to write invirogating) Just before the test I was very sleepy, very tired. Was walking around in a deep stupor. And just wanted to sleep badly, but now after the test, no traces of sleep exist. I am as refreshed as I’d be after 10 hrs of sleep. I have found my calling…. CS here I come…
