The Book I Am Reading - II

Well, I read 8-9 chapters of 'The Selfish Gene', and I am giving up.

I get the gist of the book, and it is too intensive for me to read :( Especially when the Richard Dawkins (Author) starts to argue about other experts' view.

Now I am picking up another book 'A Short History of Nearly Everything' by Bill Bryson. And its got big fonts!! Yay!! I just love the books with big fonts :)

The Book I Am Reading

Okay, time for some serious reading.

So, day before yesterday, I ordered few books from This is my first ever online purchase ! Phew !

So, one of the books has already arrived today and I am gonna start reading today.

It's 'The Selfish Gene' by Richard Dawkins, I've already read some chapters long back, and by no means it's an easy read.

Well, anyway, once I finished reading this, I hope to put a post on what I think about the book.

Lady with Pretty Eyes - Part 2


My dear readers would probably remember this post Lady with pretty eyes...

I met her again in the bus today, and I spoke to her too!!!

Woohoo!! :D

Well, we had both changed the bus route to office, and today I was trying my best to sleep in the bus. When I opened my eyes , I saw a lady was sitting next to me. And she was none other than the same lady with pretty eyes !!

I opened my earlier post in this blog on my cellphone, then I asked her if she used to commute on the older route we both used to take. She said 'yes'.

Then, gathering all my courage, I told her that I had written a post about her in my blog and gave my cellphone to her to read the post.

As she started to read it, I blurted 'Please don't slap me' ...


She read it, with a smile on her face, then I apologized to her if I had offended her, she said no !


Then she asked if I used to get down at Domlur bus stop on earlier route and said she had actually noticed me (Big grin on my face ... he he he)

Now I know her name, where she works ...

We then spoke about weather, politics, cricket and life in general...

Rest of the journey , neither of us spoke :(

And I even forgot to say 'Bye' when I got down from the bus :(

Well, any way, I am happy :D

You can bet that I am going to take the same bus tomorrow.

It's time for

some whining ...

Somethings I noticed while commuting to office in BMTC buses lately.

* I can read a 200 page novel in just 4 hours or so.

* Reading a P.G. Wodehouse novel while listening to some rock/metal song is quite a multitask. I noticed that a long trance/downtempo track makes reading easy. Especially when it has no lyrics.

* I can not read more than two P.G.Wodehouse books back to back. I'll just end up skipping all the description and just follow the story :(

* BMTC air cooled buses are uncomfortable if you end up sitting on seats where the AC ventilators are broken, and there are quite a lot of them (broken AC ventilators)

* All the FM radio channels in Bangalore suck, none of them play any western music or decent Hindi music, (Except Radio Indigo, but none of the buses put that channel ). And the drivers have no idea about volume controllers.

Well, that's about it, please tune in to this for more whining.

Is there

something wrong with the lifestyle when you spend half of your monthly income on pair of headphones?

I guess there is.

Blame it on 'Impulsive shopping'

No more cycling for another month :(

Well, that's what doc says :(

I hurt my right knee, a weekend off-road ride of about 60-65 KM proved little too much.

This is exactly what I am going through, and there is no medicine other than resting. Apparently.

Now, back to BMTC buses, and some good old P. G. Woodehouse P. G. Wodehouse books.

Any recommendations on good books that I should read? I get about 2 hours everyday in the bus to read.
