Value add to my Blog

From this time onwards I intend to add some more value to my blog. My passion for books has been evident to all who know me. It is this passion that will be once again made to use, this time around to enhance my blog. Every book I erad, I do tend to reflect upon it. Draw some parallel with my life’s experiences and see if I tend to like the author’s views upon the said topic. If its info that I have learnt I would like to make a note of the same. I haven’t been doing this. This would hence allow me to preserve my observations.

Typically in one word I would like to clock my opinion on the books I read. As usual I have been verbose enough to give explanation and then put the same idea in the most garrulous terms 🙂 I don’t seem to get over it..and neither see its possibility, until I have am imposed upon to do so.

I will start with some of the books I most enjoyed in the recent past.

-Five Point Someone- Chetan Bhagat

-Twenty thousand Leagues Under the Sea- Jules Verne

Also the ones that are my favorites…

Far from the Madding Crowd- Thomas Hardy (This is gonna be pretty tough 🙂 )

Pride and Prejudice- Jane Austen

Frenchmen’s Creek- Daphne deMaurieur (I hope I got her spelling right)

As the Crow Flies- Jeffrey Archer

I presume this is just the start and wanna develop it much better. I hope each effort of mine would help me in making a better effort.


Biblio Cormorant

This is my new id in GMAIL. I wanted something different…something that reflected my deepest and keenest interest to be my username.

I like the features of the GMAIL…

Now coming to the title…it definitely deserves some kinda explanation…

Going by my usual nature I definitely tend to complicate things a wee bit…well that is what people around me claim..while I find it otherwise. It has been the trend score well in an exam that was tough for all and flop miserably in the easier ones…I guess my hardwiring is ‘zarra hatke’ 🙂

Biblio…thats self explanatory..based on the root word for books…

Cormorant..typically its a large voracious dark-colored long-necked seabird with a distensible pouch for holding fish; used in Asia to catch fish…..

Now the reason why I have used this simile is to represent the kind of zest/enthu/appetite that I have for books.

Books are my life and I think I cannot survive without them.

Dedicating my latest mail id to this is most befitting and I believe, it represnts my truest feelings.

At work

I have been working for the last one year now in one of countries most prestigious organisations. Hmmm…..

If I put it into words like this then I feel nice about the whole thing, but in my daily routine I do not find things at all so very great. The gloss is what covers all the places whether its a premier institute or organisation or a profession.

My life in the last one year has changed tremendously but in spite of all these changes there are certain things common with regard to my professional life….

I haven’t had any special bonding towards my workplace or organisation.

My detachment with regard to the ongoings and the people has been just the same. Its a care a damn attitude that sets into me or rather prevails when it concerns my life at work. Yes, I want to do the job well and prove my worth but it doesn’t drive me to sit in the office for long hours or be totally committed to it.

This could be because of one main reason….My dislike towards the work.

The work I do is really not what I want to do…..well I do it purely because its a good career move and also because of the independence I achieve with the kind of remuneration paid.

I do not deny that I have had the experience of my life because of the opportunity provided by my work….but yet its the ocaasional distress that gets into me that tells me am not in the place I am supposed to be.

Reading all this ….I might sound kinda pessimistic..down in dumps and all..but on the contrary am feeling very nice about the fact that I am able to visualise all this clearly. My ideas and aims will not get clouded because of the ongoing chores….the detachment helps me to get back to them.

There is yet another thing I have realised about myself…..

I am capable of actually putting in a lot of effort that I think was incapable of…. I am a better person.

Now I need to work towards being the very best 🙂

My recent interviews with my close friends revealed a lot to me…. I realised that I am not as clear in expressing myself and keep them busy as to what could be the reason for a particular kind of behaviour……

I guess I have the knack of keeping people busy 😉

I hope I am atleast more explicit about myself in future.
