Cats and CourtingWhether you stay in a high-rise apartment block, or in a quiet bungalow in a posh neighbourhood, it is unlikely that you’ve never heard the ear-splitting yowl of the tom-cat in search of his mate. This primitive sound, very much like the loud wailing of a new-born in a hospital ward can cause one to wake up from deep slumber and be forced to go to the loo in the middle of the night. Or it can bring some pretty lurid nightmares, if one refuses to get up.

The Witch of PortobelloHe called me up (in the tone of ‘this is a life and death issue’) – this news editor of one of India’s leading channels, to ask me whether I’d read Paulo Coelho’s latest bestseller – THE WITCH OF PORTOBELLO. I hadn’t. He said, “It’s mind-blowing.” I asked, “More than The Alchemist? More than The Eleven Minutes?” He said, “Much more! It’s incredibly amazing!”

Reading Paulo Coelho is like traveling with a higher soul on the journey of life.  The Pilgrimage, the first of his extraordinary books nudged his reader to think – What am I searching for? The Alchemist, became an inspiration for those seeking their path in life. The Zahir, a novel of obsession, a sweeping story of love, loss and longing took away the comfort factor that we surround our lives with, as a desperate celebrity, anguished over the pain of his missing wife. The Eleven Minutes was an ‘unflinching exploration of the lengths we go to in our search for love, sex and spirituality.

The Woman who sought to mould historyThe title “Standing Alone in Mecca… A Pilgrimage into the Heart of Islam” by Asra Q. Nomani, is intriguing enough to impel book-lovers to go beyond the synopsis and terse reviews planted neatly on the back cover.

For the uninitiated (in the ways and beliefs of Islam) this work of non-fiction would prove to be a revelation of sorts, packed as it is with facts, figures and interesting information about Islam and Muslims. Since the pilgrimage is a “for Muslims only” undertaking, Nomani’s description of the journey and Mecca itself is sure to create a sense of wonder amongst people who may never get the opportunity to go there.

Long Live the Grapevine!

Campus of Virginia Tech, BlacksburgThe horrifying events of April 16, 2007 that unfolded at the campus of Virginia Tech at Blacksburg have just begun to recede from our memories. It will take years before the world can come to terms with the murderous rage of Seung-Hui Cho. But some salient facts about that fateful day made me reflect upon the difference between the country we live in and the U.S of A.

India is the land of population density and rumours that spread like wildfire. It is the land where people across the country can begin spoon-feeding milk to idols of Ganesh because somebody, somewhere, said that He was drinking milk. Every time such outbreaks of mass hysteria happen, we have people shaking their heads in regret over the superstitious nature of our people, their tendency to slip into the ‘dark ages’ of blind belief even in the age of technology.
