Book Review: Roots by Alex Haley

I’d read this book the first time back when I was barely thirteen. I know it was quite a long time ago and this book was hardly age-appropriate. But it suited me. I forgot the details after and remembered them only when I read it again a few days ago. But what I didn’t forget were the emotions I felt when I read this book. Roots is an important part of modern African-American history. It’s a story that has to be heard. And that’s why this review.  Continue reading

My New Obsession: Maglev Trains

After Morse Code Radios (which I managed to build, btw, though its functioning is slightly faulty. But, hey! Nobody is perfect!), I’m stanning Maglev Trains. #They’resocoolIwishIlivedinShanghaisoIcanliveinoneofthosebeastsforeverhappilyeverafter. And now I sound nuts (BTW that no space sentence was deliberate on my part so that you’ll understand the intensity of this latest obsession of mine).  Continue reading

Book Review: Reconciliation by Benazir Bhutto

I return with a new Book Review, again related to Pakistan.

Yes, after Fatima I’m back with her aunt, the late Benazir Bhutto’s memoir Reconciliation addressing the one question that is in the back of the minds of almost everyone: Can Islam and Democracy ever go hand-in hand?

I’m building a Radio for myself!!!

Okay, “building” is an exaggeration. But I’m definitely making a Radio from scratch. This is not a School Project. Rather, it’s something I’m doing to pass time during holidays. I dedicated a lot of time to learn the Morse Code last week, and I’m proud to announce that I’ve crossed the Beginner’s Level. Mind you, making a Radio is no child’s play and since I’m a high schooler, I’m taking the help of my Physics Prof to get me a Sounding Board. I went out and brought all these p-n junction diodes and transistors and yadda yadda yadda. My prof had all the terminal names printed on the Board so that makes my job a teeny bit easy. But it’s still work, though definitely not a chore because I’M LOVIN IT and can’t wait to get started for REAL!

Another year is ending, and we have SO many C-Novels to talk about, yet again. The 2015 Chinese Novel Translations Review done by me and @LucilleLyons had been really successful. So, this time, I’m back with @chairmanlichi to look back at 2016 (coz we have nothin’ better to do anyway. And there’s no place we’d rather be!)
