Starting a Reading List

I realize that I need to begin reading through more technical books while keeping along with regular coding. Although the maximum returns for my time seem to come from actually programming and looking at other peoples code (looking for places where improvements can be made), reading literature in the field definitely seems helpful. 544 more words


Book Review: Family Matters

Rohinton Mistry’s third novel, and third Booker Prize shortlister, is smaller in scope than his earlier two.

Joys in the attic?

When I revisit my childhood days, the word joy is redundant!

It’s like a beautiful movie. Those times when I dirtied my clothes big time playing in the rain, eating hot poha made lovingly by mom after our tiring swim, celebrating our birthdays at school by distributing candy, friends time out on the day the exams got over, ice cream nights and walk at the park with mom n dad to celebrate our results, excitement of having my hair cut (I feel the joy even now), drawing and painting lessons at school, spending time after school at your best friend’s place…. 104 more words
