Ishq And Mushq

I read the book "Ishq And Mushq" by Priya Basil over the weekend.

Really enjoyed this one. At times I did feel it could have been shorter in telling us what  it wanted to over many many pages. It was my first time knowing about Sikhs and their culture. Its fascinating to know their cultural preferences and superstitions. It was particularly nice for me to read about Sikhs's habits in the UK and how different they feel with the same habits in India. I kinda wish there was more of food in this one. I actually picked this book thinking there is a lot of food in it and maybe there it plays a huge role in their lives. But it didn't. What i really liked was the way a secret was handled by everyone in the plot even after it being known by all. Don't think I can ever be that way with a secret.

I read that this is Priya Basil's first book. Have to say its really good being the first one. Looking forward to read more from her.

In Her Shoes

Right now watching "In Her Shoes". I am so happy to have found this book and movie. Finished reading this one yesterday and I absolutely loved it. Its about two sisters and their cracked relationship. Elder one being the responsible lawyer and the younger being very opposite. I loved it 'cos somewhere I could relate to it. I am not completely different from my sister, but one could say we don't see eye to eye most of the time. Its fine with us though 'cos we give each other lot of space and mind our own business. I'm sure many sisters are this way too. 

I didn't know about this book being made into a movie. Just googled it and found. Cameron Diaz is the perfect choice for the movie. So excited to watch this one. Yay..!! :)

I have started reading "Ishq And Mushq" by Priya Basil and I am already half way into the book. Well written and in detail. Characters are good and you don't feel like keeping the book down. Will write more on this one later.

OK Kanmani

Weekend was so great that waking up to get ready for work was a bit sad thing to me today. 1 May being off due to lobour day, we had whole three days to sleep in, read, watch movies and sleep again. But i couldn't do it all very well this time.

Friday was my nephew's thread ceremony and whole day was spent with cousins. Its so nice to meet them all once in few months. Had lot of fun catching up on their lives. Saturday was shopping day for me with friends from work. One of them is getting married and we all wanted to buy Lehenga. This being my first lehenga, was a bit worried if it would suit me. For all weddings. I have always worn saree or salwar. So this time we all decided to buy similar lehengas and wear them. We went mad with the options we got. Especially me. :( I wanted to buy them all. If only i had enough money. I took one whole day to decide and finally bought one.

On Sunday, woke up late and took mum for a movie. OK Kanmani. It was really nice. Dulquer Salmaan and Nithya Menon make a great pair. All the songs in the movie are awesome and I have been listening to them nonstop. Movie was a lot like Sathiya to me. The train scene, friend's wedding, songs and clothes. Its a one time watch and songs would be in your playlist for a long time. :)
