My reading has taken a complete backseat. I dont know why, but I don't even feel like picking up the newspaper these days. Somehow, The Times of India Mumbai Edition, which is far better than the one we are used to back home, hasn't yet been able to produce an article that would have seemed eye-ctching, let alone interesting.
An exception was an article this Sunday on the Royals of Gwalior- the Scindias. The article began with a comparison with the Kennedys, the ups, the downs and the misfortune attached. The article touched all aspects, the political associations of the familys, the family feuds, the silence between the mother and son, the era during emergency. It had nothing new that you wouldn't have known about and yet was written in such a flowing style that it was a worthy read.
