Lighting Up!

I am talking about Diwali and not of the other ‘lighting up’ which can lead to illusions and hallucinations. Not interested, thank you! But the last week has been quite fabulous. For one, I went off to Pune and turned off my cell phone. I switched off the TV. I closed the room door and opened only one thing… no you perverts, not that. A book! And then another. And another. It was quite riveting. I thoroughly enjoyed lighting up during Diwali. I mean, enlightening up! One of the books I finally managed to read was The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown. The other I am reading is the Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. Both seem to be marvellous books and the time I have spent on this, is perhaps the best I have in almost six months (alone, that is). I am yet to finish Angels and Demons (also by Dan Brown) and Kite Runner, though.
More on that later (regarding why prequels are released as prequels and not the first book).

There are obvious joys in being alone and spending time the way I did, but at the same time, it is also important that one knows the whereabouts of time and not just lie about all day lost in the fabulous world of books. In my quest for solitude, I lost track of all… now I know what the cost of solitude is!

Anyway, wishing everyone a Happy Diwali and a great year ahead.
