Long Time, No Read ?

It has been a long time since I wrote something sensible – so many days have passed since I posted on something here. Not sure if I am getting lazy or slow. Started to get remarks about being a slow eater :-)  Took a long time to finish this last book I got my hands on – Daughter of the East, Benazir Bhutto. Slow Reader, eh.

The book turned out to be decent, though I found it biased against India at places. Still, you have to admire the resilience and persona of the lady who went to become the first woman to head a Muslim state. Great achievement! The significance increases manifold if you take into account the amount of sacrifices her ultimate family had to make at the altar of politics.

Anyways, it was good reading the thoughts and life of someone significant from across the border. Now, looking for some another interesting stuff.
