Weekly Random Thoughts (22Dec08-28Dec08)

Vivek --

thinks George Orwell deserves as much praise and glory for writing Burmese days as he has received for 1984 or Animal Farm!

wonders how many years of missed festivals does it take for a person to decide to return to his motherland?

wonders why Harivansh Rai Bachchan, Ramdhari Singh Dinkar, Mahadevi Verma, Dharamveer Bharati, (all great Hindi poets) are virtually unknown to the world...

(I guess it is apt to save these musings for some later investigation!)

Hello Vivek,
I read a few of your book reviews; if you would be interested in reviewing my new novel, Fiction by Ara 13 (release March 2009), I will gladly send you an ARC. My first novel, Drawers & Booths by Ara 13, won an IPPY as an "Outstanding Book of the Year." You can research me at and on Amazon (for Drawers & Booths). I can be reached at Thanks. Ara
