Book Review- The Mirror of Beauty

I wanted more!!!!!
The Mirror of Beauty by Shamsur Rahman Faruqi is 952 pages long and as it goes with most historical works, the detailed description cannot be avoided. From the intricate and vibrant Kishangarh miniatures to the rich world of carpet weaving in Kashmir and the Mughal era of the 19th century, this book takes the reader on a journey that enthrals and captivates.
I picked up the book because of the appealing cover and the raving reviews it has received from authors such as Orhan Pamuk and Nadeem Aslam.

One cannot know these things about the opposite sex, and this book opens your eyes to these differences. It could make a world of difference in how you handle certain "typical" situations in a relationship and when dealing with a member of the opposite sex.

2 States - a movie review

An unusually quiet & reflective husband after watching '2 States' ...

Probably wistfully wondering why a pretty, willing Alia Bhatt did not float into his life, during his two year stint at IIM Ahmedabad! More sobering the thought that Chetan Bhagat found her!!!!
