I missed the post on 30th. Time is flying by for me. A week passes & I feel nothing happened in that week. It is over like a dream. And sometimes It is like living 2-3 days in a single day. 😛
This post is not a rant one – its from pocket diary. So…
From the movie ‘Secret in their Eyes’, ” Justice is nothing but an Island. This is the real World.”
The word ‘justice’ has been delimited by the semantics of the current time,place & people. It is the written laws which define what justice means. The World has its own meaning of ‘Justice’. Its means the moral human actions which leaves one with clear conscious. Its the ‘Dharma’ as a human being not as a citizen of a bounded region.
” While philosophy is struggling for human emancipation, economics( or political economy) has been working out a new formula of ‘Corporate Cannibalism’.
Read it in a book about Ethics. It was revealing to find how the approach to economical theory & philosophical theory differs from each other. And how in today’s world – the economical theory is considered as a philosophical truth to reconcile with. It is like a machine showing probability of occurring an event & people start considering it as a prophecy. The machine becomes an oracle or a God of a sort.
From the novel ‘Pavid Pavillion’,” Confusion is the first mile in the cross-country race to serenity.”
So who wants to reach the serenity? It is a fact that I believe in. You have to swim through the fog to reach the shores(specially when the shores are unknown).
Franklin Knight Lane,” A public office is not a job, it is an opportunity to do something for the public.”
You know when you find people condemning the public services & office, I would like this question to them. Consider that you have been given all the powers of an IAS officer & as I assume that you won’t be doing any of those things you are condemning them for – so what will you do with all that power & authority? Tell me that and if I ever become one I will try to do that.
I would like to have your thoughts on them. 😀
This is the last one of the novel, which I took from my fathers’ bookshelf. I finished reading it on 5th only, but didn’t got much time to write the review here. It will be a really short review.
By Sidney Sheldon
This will be a short review because there is nothing much to comment on. This one was one of the early work of Sidney Sheldon. Even, it’s ISBN has been reassigned to some other work of his. It can show you how Sidney Sheldon moved from meaningless & gibberish stories to the master- plots of his thrillers. This has been a disappointment , as I expected to find suspense or thriller. Well, I was bemused by the plot though.
This book has portrayed the sexual scandals of the high society of Hollywood. Well, not of a society but of some well connected characters. The connection is their sexual encounters & its a messy mesh. Every character seems to be copulated with some other character. All the feelings of envy,jealousy,anger, love,passion – I mean almost every type of human emotion without its depth has been presented via the characters. Each chapter has some form of sexual encounter placed as per the story-line.
I can’t pinpoint the protagonist of the novel. It looked like bunch of bunnies having sex in a glamorous world. And the scenes are not explicit like the mommy porn – ’50 Shades of Grey’. They will give the idea what’s been done.
The whole point of the book was like creating a bunch of characters – with each having some motive embedded with high sex drives.(too high sex drives) . In the end the author just kills them one by one. Letting them die into the nothingness where they originated from.
Yeah, that’s all.
The book cover was totally apt for this one. The main women who survive are blondes with blue eyes. But I still don’t understand why each book of Sidney Sheldon has a girl/woman pic on its cover.
This was a waste of time. Glad! I finished fast.
I won’t recommend it. I think, its not even in print now. For the best of you, You won’t find it in any book stores. 😛
P.S – My frequency of blogging will decrease from now on. As I have to study for the mains exam & I am in flow now-a-days. 😀
