After reading rushdie I read Paulo Choelho. He is a magnificent writer, by all standards. The books are a bit philosophical, dwelling on the subject of human psychology and process of psychological growth. Really magnificent. Choelho's book really have the potential to contriubute towards the growth of ones personality.
On a different note, tomorrow is a national holiday, supposedly for some declaration signed around 60 years ago. But considering the extent to which our history has been twisted to meet the needs of our rulers, tomorrow may have been the birthday or an anniversery of someone... anyways whos celebrating ??!!??
