Choices on a Sunday Morning!


This picture tells the tale of a Sunday Morning!

Too many things to read, I was spoiled for choice. Should I start with -

  • Sunday Times - Weekly columns by Swapan Dasgupta, MJ Akbar, Chetan Bhagat and Swami Iyer.
  • THE HINDU Magazine - Articles by Harsh Mander on the Ayodhya demolition and aftermath, Sevanti Ninan and the captivating Wayfarer column that features Ladakh this time...
  • Times Life - Its available space (prominent inner wear ads dominate it) devoted to the usual Soul Curry column and celebrity takes on Spirituality.
  • Times Crest - A newly introduced magazine-like Saturday special with in depth stories. This week has climate change as the topic!
  • THE HINDU literary review - First Sundays of any month are always made special by the literary review! This week has a review of "The difficulty of being good" by Gurcharan Das, a book that I have been dying to read ever since I heard of it.
  • Two States by Chetan Bhagat - An entertaining masala ridden fare by a writer with no pretensions.
Now, imagine my plight on where to start! Sometimes, choices are good when each of them offers something interesting and new and engaging especially on weekends, not to speak of Sunday mornings. I would have appeared deaf when, with all this competing for attention in my mind, I managed to take this picture!

My pick :- 2 States and Literary Review.. Nothing like a lazy Sunday Morning... especially when you have a coochy coo book and hot coffee... Ah.. !! That's a blessing ....

@Prathiba: Perhaps we shouldn't complicate it by having too many choices :)

@Aswin: Yes, this one was not as confusing...

@Layman: Chetan Bhagat doesn't disappoint!
