IDed

Seems to be a season for being recognised- as in identified.
Last week or so it was the lady in Shopper's Stop.

A couple of days ago, my mother bumped into a non blogger at Anush's school who reads the blog. The lady recognised Anush of course and that is how they figured it out.

Also it so happens that a regular overseas reader of this blog just discovered that we were possibly colleagues at my first place of work years ago!!

Finally saw Sach ka Saamna last night and found that it was not as personal as the one episode I happened to watch in English a long while ago. Also I am puzzled how people are willing to be judged/ humiliated in public. The lure of money must be really strong.

Been a while since I wrote about what I have been reading- Jack Reacher, Lee Child's fictional creation, is a hell of a guy. I have thoroughly enjoyed all his books so far- Killing Floor, Die trying, One shot, Bad luck and trouble- and currently Trip wire. Any of you have read it?

I have read two or three of his novels and yes Jack Reacher is an unlikely hero. Remember relishing The Killing Floor.

It is either the lure for money or the fact that they're getting an audience to listen to them.

Sri said...

Im guessing Sach ka samna is based on "Moment of Truth". I strongly disliked that show. The questions were very personal.. and the answers so dramatic that I wonder if it was all scripted. Why would anyone want to wash their dirty linen in public?!

Don't you feel like a celeb?

Yeah, it has to be the lure of money, I can't quite think of another reason! I haven't read this author, I'm tempted to try one though. Btw, do you know any good kids library in and around Velachery?

Wow ! How does it feel to be recognised from you blog ?

I was introduced to Lee Child's novels by a friend a couple of years back and I have enjoyed reading him since then.

Love Anush's pic in the header.
