    A Dance With Dragons by GRRM. I'm almost done though. Might read Fire & Bloood next in anticipation of House of the Dragon.

    Wow, so nice that you started reading in native language.
    I have been planning to do the same. I often think, why wasn't Hindi literature forced on us more.
    I planning to read the "maha kavyas"

    "Panchavati" and "Ashadh Ka Ek Din" were good fun, but after bone-crushing encounters with "Kafan" and "Nirmala", I was ready to retire to my espresso and tiny paperback volumes of jaasoosi kahaniyaan with their technicolor covers and smudgy newsprint.:lol:
    Good luck with the maha kavyaas - I assume you mean the NaMo speeches. Deeply inspiring, no doubt.:wink1:

    i finally read : good omens: nice and accurate prophecies by agnes nutter
    this book by neil gaiman and terry pratchett had been on my to read list for long, but when i finally read it, i was disappointed.
    maybe i had high expectation or whatever .
    but i even struggled with the language, i had to re read quite a lot of paragraphs to understand what the authors are trying to say.
    and somehow i found the humor forced, as if the author had written first draft and then at editing stage decided to deliberate introduce funny sounding phrases.
    that said, the concept of armageddon, the birth of anti christ and how the demon and angel try to avert it : was good but again i couldn't comprehend the end.
    but considering its ratings on goodreads, i think i am the only one who is so critical of the book.
    maybe if i read it again ......
