  5. Hey thanks adee, already got Mrityunjaya, itching for 'Yugandhar' and there is a Marathi book on Duryodhan by Kaka Vidhate. Only if I could get a translation. Besides, also not getting 'Parva'.

  6. I love reading books ever since I was a little kid. Now that I am a father myself, I encourage my kids to read good books. There are a lot of good books to read like the Chronicles of Narnia, Harry Potter or those which are written by Stephen King.

  7. @ Good Books...Even I have been reading since I was quite young but I still feel I should have started earlier or may be introduced to these wonderful books much before than I discovered them! I have still not read so many classics!
