So again (as usual) I was watching the IPL in the office cafeteria .
Today's teams: Mumbai Indians vs Kings XI Punjab.
There I was, nicely devouring the food and the sights and sounds.
Suddenly I was interrupted by a thought (an irritating thought actually!): Chetan Bhagat!
At that point in the match, KXIP were playing at the run-rate of 5.71. Thats why!
Five Point Seven One.
Five Point Sevm One.
Five Point Some One.
Thats why I thought about him.
Here is what I think about him:
I read only1 book of his: Five Point Someone.
Its a bland blearrrrghhish book.
Nothing ever happens.
No drama, no suspense, no romance, no spook, no great philosophy, no beautiful wordplay.
He sells because thats the kind of book MAJORITY are hardly CAPABLE of reading I guess :P.
If I read a book or watch a for free and still I claim not to like it, it probably means it was genuinely bad.
I read this one for free. My roomie had bought it.
I guess it didn't stand a miniscule chance to get liked by me because it was nowhere in the league of other books I was reading in those same 15-20 days:
Shalimar the clown (roommate's)
Black Friday - true story of Bombay bomb blasts (roommate's)
Some Stephen King book (purchased from waste paper mart)
BTW I WILL NOT BLOG FOR AROUND 10 DAYS
