Personal, Photography


Yesterday’s post reminded me of this picture lying around. I planned to post it, but it slipped through the cracks. Happens. It’s about as full as can be.

This is the pile of unread books I’m getting around to these days. It would have been smaller but I went crazy buying more than I should have. The books standing at the right corner have been read.

Oh, and I partly designed the bookshelf too.
And I forgot to mention that the painting of the flower vase on top was done by a six year old girl, a niece of a friend of mine.


About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.

  1. i can relate to trying to get around to reading all the books you went ‘crazy’ buying or in my case downloading.
    PS/ that flower painting is delightful actually its amazing,someone needs to enroll that 6 yr old in an art program ASAP, talent like that needs nurturing.

  2. One of the disadvantages of owning a Kindle is that one cannot show off their books like this. All my unread books are in 0’s and 1’s. πŸ™‚
