Connect the Dots ..  Chance to connect to different stories

What you do when you are jobless sitting at home, thinking, what next? How about starting a business? Or shall I look for interesting job?

‘Six Suspects’ and murderer is Writer!

First time in my life it happened that I left a book when I completed 90% reading it. I started reading ‘Six Suspect by Vikas Swarup’ recommended by my cousin as NEVER TO READ book. I thought let me give it try as how bad can it get. And believe me, I regret not listening to my cousin till date.
This book talks about a murder at a party where police have six suspects, one of which is murderer. All six suspects have stories of their own, covered with controversies and drama. Be it tribal man who comes to city to retrieve an object or U.S citizen who comes to India to marry a pen friend. The stories are inspired by news channels and gossip column of daily newspaper. There is nothing new in this book. The Writer tried what Chetan Bhagat does with his book, make it sound 'Bollywood'ish. I am just praying that no director should think of making a movie based on this book.
Maybe I am bit harsh with this book but there was nothing impressive in…
