Recent Read, Movie and Music

Recent Read
I have read books on female suffering and endurance; the ones forced on me in school and the ones I read voluntarily. Not even from Chimamanda's The Purple Hibiscus did I get such a vivid portrait of this menace. Khaled Hosseini took me to the world of the Afghan woman's survival in the war-ravaged country. A must read for all book lovers.

A Thousand Splendid Suns is a breathtaking story set against the volatile events of Afghanistan’s last thirty years—from the Soviet invasion to the reign of the Taliban to the post-Taliban rebuilding—that puts the violence, fear, hope, and faith of this country in intimate, human terms. It is a tale of two generations of characters brought jarringly together by the tragic sweep of war, where personal lives—the struggle to survive, raise a family, find happiness—are inextricable from the history playing out around them.

Recent Movie
I grew up watching the Indian Movies, but I lost interest in them mainly because of the length, really 3hours of my time, watching some lovers sing, fight and all the normal scenes they portray was a waste of time for me. Last weekend, I finally decided to follow my flatmates to the cinema to watch Delhi Belly only because they said it was all the in English.

Delhi Belly: I have never laughed this hard watching any Indian movie. This is one non-pretentious movie which portrayed the present day India.
