Chetan Bhagat’s Half Girlfriend

Chetan Bhagat and his #halfgirlfriend

Once upon a time, there was a Bihari boy called Madhav. He fell in love with girl called Riya.
Madhav didn’t speak English well. Riya did.
Madhav wanted a relationship. Riya didn’t.
Riya just wanted friendship. Madhav didn’t.
Riya suggested a compromise. She agreed to be his half-girlfriend.

I’m so sure that this would also conquer Indian readers mind! I mean, Half Girlfriend is going to be yet another flimsy- romantic cliche from Chetan Bhagat, who is one among the national bestselling author, which will hit the bookstores by the mid of October during this year. Although I’m a critique reader of Bhagat’s works since I completed reading Revolution 2020, I wouldn’t say that Bhagat’s novels are based on poky- cheesy- fanciful plots like many of his readers say, though he’s conquered many of the teenagers as well as youngsters hearts through his alluring writing style and redundant story plots. As a published writer, if he’s successful in conveying his inner creations to the outer world, at least right in front of this major group, then how could many of us underestimate his newly written novel just after hearing its title before the official launch? 

I went through certain tweets related to #halfgirlfriend today and what welcomed me was the uncovered pole vaulting stature of the search term on the web within hours since after the official announcement from the author regarding his latest book’s release.  A few among them made me think like a pointless tweet lover, whereas the rest made me laugh like I’m watching a show of The Big Bang Theory. A number of interesting tweets in them is as follows:

Now, it’s my turn to tell my expectations regarding the book. I love explaining things so shortly and simply. Here it is:

 

Madhav loves Riya

Riya hates Madhav

English is his problem,

it was their theorem

 

Half girlfriend, a trauma

found out by a drama

Chetan speaks

twitter shines

Love is a pen

holds his tale’s den

I would love to know your anticipation on the book too. Feel free to express it without a second thought here.

PS: This post is entirely a funny take on the basis of my personal views and all those tweeters on Chetan Bhagat and his works. Although, if anybody feels so bad about it, I earnestly apologize you for what I’ve written. *smiles*

Hardcopy Or Softcopy?

Hey folks! I’ve received a mail from a blogging friend of mine last night who has asked me regarding my inactiveness in the blogging platform these days. It was then, I reminded about this simple blog space I’ve created  2 years back under the blogging domain’s network. And yes, I’m not that active like before here. It’s not because I’m too much busy these days, though I’m taking a short- break from the virtual world completely for a change. It doesn’t mean that I lost my interest for blogging as well; I would come back whenever I feel like the same as before. However, I’m trying my level best for not missing any of the updates from you people, the ones I follow back, and of course, it’s really nice to read all of you. Stay calm and keep blogging, Fellas. *smiles*

Rather than wandering in and around all through the virtual world, I’m giving much attention for reading books these days. I’ve already completed The Prophet written by Kahlil Gibran, My Story written by Kamala Das, A Book Of Short Stories written by Edgar Allen Poe, another one written by Padmarajan, Kafka On The Shore written by Haruki Murakami and The Fault In Our Stars written by John Green within one and half month or so; and now, I’m reading the softcopy of How I Braved Anu Aunty & Co-founded A Million Dollor Company,  a humorous- true story written by Varun agarwal, an Indian author. Among the ones I read, I had the hardcopies of all the above mentioned books except Murakami’s Kafka On The Shore and hence it was such a wondeful time I’d being together with those ever written best sellers and reading them, most of the times during the midnight with a cup of hot coffee/ tea in my hand. 

Here is an account on the differences I felt while reading a hardcopy over a softcopy; it’s not about which copy you read, but the reading process is what actually does matter, I know. Anyway, have a look at it and I would love to know regarding your perspectives about it too.

1) Reading a hardcopy is superb-sexy even if you do/don’t know the softness of a softcopy.

2) Handling a hardcopy is much harder than handling a softcopy; if you’re not that bad at reading the hardcopy/softcopy of a book, I suppose, you’ve already got the right meaning behind what I said. You may have to spend more time while reading hardcopy rather than a softcopy.

3) Not any softcopy could give you the printed fragrance of a hardcopy, and thus an inner peace; reading a hardcopy by holding it directly in your hands and turning the pages just seem so nice to escape at least for a few seconds/minutes from the real world to an epic world of innumerable thoughts.

4) Having a good number of your favorite books in your library can make you feel so jealous on yourself for the unique treasure you’ve.

5) Addiction factor! Yea.. Of course, hardcopies are too good at it.

6) That’s the thing about books; it would definitely kill your time so easily.

It’s Time For Shopping


An outset…! I was speaking about yet another outset from this infinite space of full-time shopping. Perhaps, you might not know where you’re right now. Please don’t think about it now; of course, you must think about what I asked you for not to think about straight away. I’m still telling you that you don’t know where you’re at the moment, speaking to your mini-screen’s favorite diva, and looking forward to know what I’m going to tell you, so openly out here. By the way, let me acquaint myself to all of you; I’m not so sure whether everyone among you knows an unpopular actress like me. Duh! Seriously. I’m Kaley Cuoco, an American by birth and a lovely starlet to everyone who knows me through the never ending season of The Big Bang Theory, one among America’s most popular tv show.

I suppose, those who knows me as your Penny, at least through the tv show, are so familiar regarding my admiration on fashion and shopping as well. Yea! I’m so much crazy for spending most of my time for shopping whenever I’m at home and nibble up the latest movements in fashion to keep my position and outlook for my whole fan followers across the globe. A few months back, while I was talking with Ellen Lee on her tv show, she asked me a very interesting query regarding my madness on fashion and the sexy-appealing look I always try to maintain when I’m in the public. I confess hereby in front of you that I haven’t given a proper key to her query on that occasion; why should I reveal out the secret behind my dernier cri for her? Glad that she didn’t make any prospect there by asking much perceptible questions regarding all such personal visage of mine and therefore make an alley to get familiar regarding my fashion sense for the public. But, as I’m getting a lot of queries, enquiring about the same aspect from the public after that show, I think, I must tell the exact truth concerning it to all of you today.

First of all, let me tell you that I’m an idealamative online shopping lover since 2011. Then of course, you would ask me why? Why Penny, our Big Bang Theory girl goes for online-stores rather than purchasing it directly from the various outlets in California, at where I’m currently residing with my family. My answer is already understood from the query if you think about it in the right way; if you like me in the way I’m looking now, then why not online shopping?

Baggout, the most-enthralling online shopping site I’ve ever visited thus far among the currently available online stores. Rather than simply wandering in and around an online site for complete shopping, the easiest and impudent access at any time gives an additional benefit for me as a demented lover of fashion, perfumes, technology and books. The site offers various International designer brands to their customers for assorted products at the best and reasonable prices. I must admit the fact that the quickest and easiest way for anyone who has ever gotten from login through the checkout is just a few seconds of time; this kind of convenience is one among the major reason why I love online shopping. As I’m so conscious regarding the brands of my dress materials, the comparison and research of products of different brands at the same time gives more comfort for me as a public figure while selecting products on Baggout.

When it comes to books and technological gadgets, Baggout gives an update at the exact time after its official launch; I could even pre-order the books written by my favorite authors even before its legitimate publication. I bought Brown’s Inferno like this and I got it so faster before its introduction to the common market. Another factor that attracts me to online shopping would be the so-called crowd itself; I always love being in the crowd, interacting with the people, but not when I’m for shopping.

So all-in-all, Baggout as an online store provides me a good deal of privacy as well as a convenient form of shopping which drew my attention on them at any time. If you’re a crazy shopping lover like me, and so why not? Cave in a tries on Baggout and grab your stylish products according to your own choices.

Sidney Sheldon

Tell me your dreams…

A stranger in the mirror,

The other side of me!

PS: I suppose, you’re all familiar with the 3 lines I’ve written above as in the form of a haiku. All these 3 lines are the titles of the 3 books written by Sidney Sheldon- one among my favorite author, and hence this post has been dedicated to him as an honor from my side.
