"it’s not we who control money, it’s the money that controls us. When there’s only a little, it behaves meekly; when it grows, it becomes brash and has its way with us." -- Vivek Shanbhag, Ghachar Ghochar

When you come across an Indian fiction after a very long time and sit to recall all the the gems that are building blocks of our Indian literature. Ghachar Ghochar did that to me!

Incomplete conversations, incomplete plans, not even a slight prior warning, death is one tricky end that topples down many beginnings! A closure leaving one with unending emotions, yet named as an end.

"Elusive as he was, he was ever present. Perhaps his very elusiveness made his presence all the more palpable. When she was quiet, absent, pensive, sad, I thought : She's thinking about him; when she leafed through a newspaper looking for something, I thought : She's looking for a report about him; when she jumped up to answer the telephone, I thought : She's hoping it's him." -- Bernhard Schlink, Homecoming

Because there are so many ways to define what one can call as home. For her heart, it was always him!

"She was passionate about the rain and I was passionate about the way she loved it. It was that way with everything. It is safe to say that if I didn’t have her, there would be no fire in me at all." – Christopher Poindexter

Rain, Rain, Come Again! Damped and blurred yet so peaceful and clear, there ain't any getting over you.

A world within the worlds. That's how I suppose our lives are. Masking bits at a time and sneaking out some at the other.

Have you read this autobiographical tale of a 13 year old girl? Would love to know your thoughts on the same. I have started reading it today and the words quoted above coming from a young girl of 12 is quite a wisdom punch right in the beginning. Age is just a number, as they rightly say!

"Several years later, from a taxi, you will see someone in a doorway who looks like her, but she will be gone by the time you persuade the driver to stop. You will never see her again. Whenever it rains you will think of her." -- Neil Gaiman

There is something about the rains! These little big drops of joy bring along a certain kind of peace that my heart feels whenever it's pouring outside. Snuggled with a book and a sip of warmth in hand, just watching the rain drops trickling down the windowpane is more than enough to make my day a rather happy one!

"I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you're going, but you know that as long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you." -- C JoyBell C

And you will have to trust the wind and let your fears be engulfed by it so as to land somewhere once the wind takes you along.

"Life was about spending time together , about having the time to walk together holding hands, talking quietly as they watched the sun go down. It wasn't glamorous, but it was, in many ways, the best that life has to offer. Wasn't that how the old saying went? Who, on their deathbed, ever said they wished they had worked harder? Or spent less time enjoying a quiet afternoon? Or spent less time with their family?" -- Nicholas Sparks, True Believer .

A love story over anything. Given all the options to choose from, I will always prefer a love story first and when one is reading Nicholas Sparks, love as a central theme doesn't come as a surprise. But with a tint of mystery, wit and humour, the book is certainly something.

When you come across such words, as simple and pure, then it doesn't matter whether you are 13 or 23 -- You are never too old to dive in Mr. Bond's world.

And sometimes you got be your own hero, living and writing your story, one moment, one day at a time.

Because sometimes, it's good to lose yourself somewhere to find yourself.

And this line did strike a chord in my heart when I first read this classic work by Thomas Hardy. Loved the rustic charm and beauty in it and the drizzle outside makes it a perfect time to re-read this marvel. Any suggestions on the movie adaptation of the book?

"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen." -- Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
