I consider books and music as one of my best friends.
The first ever book i read on Architecture was “Form, Space and order” by Francis D. Ching. I worshiped that book in my college days. “Inquiry by Design” by John Zeisel and John P. Eberhard, “Thinking in Action ” by Rush Fred are books i cherish.”Built to last” by James Collins & Jerry Porras, “Seven Habits of Highly Influential People” by Stephen Covey are books inspired me a lot and i must thank my mentor Ar. Sabu Francis for that.
I am fond of Ayn Rand.I like Alchemist, The monk who sold his Ferrari, , series of Sudha Murthy, Three msitakes by Chetan Bhagat. I do read Marathi literature.Panipat, Yayati, Swami, Rau, Zhunj, Mrutyunjay, P.L.Deshpande’s all books, are few to mention.I enjoy reading philosophical books.
Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged drove me crazy when i first read it. I actually started living like Howard Roark. 🙂
Well, then i read “Joy of Reiki” by Naren and Renu Nirula which made me look into other aspects of life.
Yes, spiritual books have become my favorites recently.I must mention one book here “Buddha” by Osho that gave me a jolt.Yes it really took some time to configure my system as a strong believer.
Music is an eternal part of my life. I love all melodious songs. I like R.D.Burman’s compositions . I am fond of Hindi & Marathi songs.But I love “Music for Romance” by Louis bank. Not to forget “Only Time” by Aanya and “Everything i do” by Bryan Adams.
I am a complete movie freak. I enjoy watching t.v.commercial as well. I drool over “Limca: kuchh bunde chura lo na”, Fevicol ads and many more.Rang De Basanti, Jab we met,Sweet November, Shall we dance, Passion of Christ are movies very close to my heart.Face off,Dejavu, Man on fire,Jaane tu ya jaane na are among hitlist.Of late i watch all movies with good scripts.
