A so-so day filled with idle hours and occasionally busy moments.
I did nothing particularly important and nothing particularly important happened as well.
Oh wait something did happen.
I finished ‘Norwegian Wood’ by Haruki Murakami.
And also kinda bought a new book.
Well actually, not a ‘new’ book. It’s basically a very old book. A new edition and version is all.
The prose form of the ‘Mahabharata’ by R.K Narayan. One of the most epic poems, and by epic I mean epic in the traditional sense, of India arranged in prose so that mere mortals like me can understand its magnificence.
Looking forward to burying myself in Indian folklore. I mean India is our neighbouring country and it shocks me that I don’t know about their stories and traditions.
1. Bookshops that no one go to have the most surprising books in them. In no other would I have expected to find the gem I mentioned before. Ok so maybe a few may have had them but not any I tried.
2. Japanese people are messed up. Like seriously messed up. But also kind of normal. I would like to learn more about them. But I think judging an entire nation’s populace by a single book is rather cruel of me. Even if said book is a ‘slice of life’ story.
