One's personality is both a composition and reflection, but if I have to choose one of them, I will choose reflection as the "self" is more important to me than "me". One's composition may change, walking across the cultural landscapes and climbing the social ladder but one's self is tied to one's reflections. The fun part is that reflections are not bound to "Time-Space" barriers ( it is not time-space) and respective mental constructs, which have grown so thick over ages, that they had reduced the image of humans to Sisyphus, rolling different sizes of boulders on hills of different heights.… As the name of this Blog indicates, knols are my perspectives on topics of interests, sweet/bitter experiences or just doodling :)

Reading Now

I am a music lover but it is of no match to reading when it comes to do a service to your mind and body. Doesn't believe me? Read this article, " 7 unconventional reasons why you should be absolutely reading books". I believe that suggestions are really powerful in persuading others, so I thought, I should list my current reading lists, and if my listing succeed in persuading a few individuals to read these books, this page definitely has served its purpose and that is to be of some service to the friends (I will try to update this page as I include new books in my reading list). Happy Reading :)

   "Living History" By Rodham Clinton

On the page 79, Hillary talks about her joining as the first woman in the Rose Firm. When firm the partners in the firm voted to hire her, Vince and Herb two enthusiastic Lawyers to have a woman in their firm gave a copy of "Hard Times" by Charles Dickens which she later thought as an appropriate gift. 

Of course, I also included it in my reading list and reading it,

     "Hard Times" By Charles Dickens  
      "The self as a project: Politics and Human Sciences" 
       Edited by Greg Eghigian, Andreas Killen, and Christine Leuenberger

Thanks to a friend's rating on Facebook, "My Name is Red" by Orhan Pamuk is now in my reading list :)

Today (10/31/2013), I finished reading, "The Atlantis Dialogue: Plato's Original Story of the Last City and Continent by Plato" ... Frankly, I liked the way, it was constructed. I mean, the technique of inventing an imaginary city by constructing a dialogue was more attractive to me than the tale of Atlantis. I liked it so much that immediately after finishing it, I started reading, "The Republic" by Plato.
