Just for a change I thought of reading poetry and my dad suggested me to read K. S. Nissar Ahmed. And to my luck I started with the very famous poem by him “KurigaLu saar kurigaLu” — marvelous literature. Beginning is like this — “kurigaLu saar kurigaLu saagiddE gurugaLu” – he gives the reader a feeling of ‘teasing’ oneself about one’s existence and the way one earns his piece of bread. I can’t explain beyond this (not an expert to comment on literature :o…) – If you can understand Kannada, don’t miss it read it.
“Books” — I don’t remember when they walked into my life. As far as I remember, I developed this hobby of reading when I was in my high school (or even before that ?). Till last month I was more in to reading of just prose – novels, short stories, dramas, essays.
