  2. So True, I read THE HINDU daily and they have, through their insightful reporting, made me ponder about things which really needs our attention and have managed to turn around my prejudices and stereotypes I had unknowingly harboured all along! I reflect upon things and always try to dig deeper now! They turned my views on Death Penalty upside down for the better….and consequently I donot support it now!!
    Looking forward to read more and more and more and never really stop!!
    Thanks for sharing the illustration!!

  4. Nice posts, I personally LOVE reading so so much and I tend to find myself writing in similar styles to the books I read which I’m not sure is meant to be significant in the way we perceive the words! I also find myself writing in those styles within my blog posts which are mainly lifestyle topics and other relate-able areas which I enjoy reading within books!


  5. I like it when people come together and share opinions.

    Great blog, continue the good work!

  7. there is also negative side. What you choose to read is very important. At one time of my life i was addicted existential writers of Europe. It really suck your blood. Let me post a few lines from Sarte Nausea . ” I dreamed vaguely of killing myself to wipe out at least one of these superfluous lives. But even my death would have been In the way. In the way, my corpse, my blood on these stones, between these plants, at the back of this smiling garden. And the decomposed flesh would have been In the way in the earth which would receive my bones, at last, cleaned, stripped, peeled, proper and clean as teeth, it would have been In the way: I was In the way for eternity” … So be careful with your Choicess. Be happy enjoy your reading.

      • അല്ല മനുഏട്ടാ …. ഇന്ന് ഞാൻ എഴുതിയ ഭ്രാന്തുകൾ വായിച്ചു സമയം കളഞ്ഞിട്ടു മുകളിലെ ഏമാന്റെ വായിലെ കേൾക്കേണ്ടി വരുമോ ….😋 i dont ask anyone to read my blog (not ego, just never force anyone)


      • താൻ പറഞ്ഞിട്ടല്ലല്ലോ തന്റെ ബ്ലോഗുകൾ ഞാൻ വായിക്കുന്നത്. എനിക്ക് തന്റെ ബ്ലോഗുകൾ ഇഷ്ടപ്പെട്ടതുകൊണ്ടല്ലേ. എനിക്ക് കമന്റ് ചെയ്യാതെയും വായിക്കാമല്ലോ. അത് താൻ അറിയണമെന്നില്ല. തന്റെ ചില ബ്ലോഗ്കളിൽ എന്റെതിനു സാമ്യമായ കാര്യങ്ങൾ കാണുന്നു. അല്ലെങ്കിൽ എനിക്ക് എന്തോ പ്രത്യേകത തോന്നുന്ന കാര്യങ്ങൾ കാണുന്നു. ആ കാര്യങ്ങൾ കമന്റ് ചെയ്യുന്നു. അത്രേയുള്ളു.
        പിന്നെ, താൻ എഴുതുന്ന ഭ്രാന്തുകൾ വായിക്കാൻ തോന്നുന്ന ഒരു ഭ്രാന്തൻ ആണെന്ന് തന്നെ വിചാരിച്ചോളൂ. 🙂 എന്തും വായിക്കാൻ ഭ്രാന്തുള്ളവൻ. 🙂
