"I have lost counting of my books"
Which book are you reading right now?
I am reading this book called,The Beloved by Osho. I have just started reading this book and I am just in its second page, so can't tell you anything about it.
Which book did you explore prior to this one?
Well, I read this book called The Monk who sold the Ferrari written by an Indian author Robbin Sharma. It gives advice about living our life in a definite way. It also talks about spirituality.
Is there any particular reason for you being so involved with books?
There is no reason as such, I have been reading since I was a child. Other than my inherent interest, it was always encouraged at home! Apart from the learning and knowledge aspect, a book is a man's best companion, mostly while traveling.
"I love reading everything!"
What sorts of books do you like to read?
I am a voracious reader, I love reading everything. From Archie's to encyclopedia, from fiction to non-fiction, every damn thing!
Which book is closest to your heart?
I like reading whatever interests me and have a varied taste. So there is no book as such, but I do like non-fiction and also readers digest, as I feel that it is a compilation of amazing facts. Basically as I said earlier I enjoy everything.
Tell us something about your collection
Well, I can't even think of counting my books. They are so many that I'll loose my counting. I have this huge cupboard which is full of books. And yes, I have innumerable encyclopedia's, which I love reading.
