    My favourite author has to be Gulshan Nanda who has written several Hindi novels and each one of them makes superb reading.

    I love to read Sidney sheldon's collections .He is marvellous...If anyone is not interested in reading novels and want to cultivate their habit can go for sidney sheldon's book .His books were page turners..
    The best collections i have read so far are:
    If tommorow comes
    Tell me your dreams
    Those are great!!!

    hi navpreet,

    That is a very difficult one for me.because book and authors..too many....but poets, i am partial to the tamil composer "Papanasam Sivan" he is called the thiyagaraja of tamilnadu...some of his songs are so natural and full of reality.....
