Gone With The Wind

Please don't be apprehensive, this post is not about the methods I use during flatulency. I just want to announce that I have started reading "Gone With the wind" by Margaret Mitchell.

The reason behind all that braggadocio is that the book spans over 770 pages and is a classic love story and to add it I have to finish within 15 days flat as I have issued it from a library. The very fact that an indolent like took up the gauntlet (well it’s no less than that), deserves no less than an encomium. May be the fact that the story spins around the American civil war attracted me.

While reading the initial part experienced the vicarious pleasure of living in a county, owning plantation and living life at random, with all the books and movies you ever wanted, all the women you ever wanted to court, like Stuart says

"Give me a horse to ride and some good licker to drink and a good girl to court and a bad girl to have fun with and anybody can have their Europe"

I just added books and movies. Guess I have already made my plans for life after retirement.

Anyways books and movies are all I have been up to recently. Finished The Mammaries of welfare state by Upamanyu chatterjee and Animal Farm by George Orwell. Movies that fell in love with recently were Shawshank redemption,Hazaron Khawishyein Aisi and Schindler's list and am still exasperated with the fact I could not write about any of the above books or movies. I just hope may be in future I will.
