Randomness, Thy Name Is PS

20May07

 

I’d been meaning to buy a copy of The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins but the price tag of Rs 720 was a tiny deterrant. However, I bought the new paperback edition at one third the price yesterday. The first 80 pages I’ve read so far have amazingly lucid arguments. One of those books you don’t want to put down but don’t want to finish too soon either.

Also, chances that you’ll come across this film are minuscule but if you do get a chance, watch Danny Boyle’s Sunshine. An excellent Sci Fi film that really does justice to the genre. Speculative fiction at it’s best. It delves into the moral and ethical dilemmas the crew of a space ship face whilst attempting to save mankind from annihilation. (No, it’s nothing like Armageddon) The final sequence is an experience that is almost spiritual. OK…not really but excellent nonetheless. 8.5/10

    Hey..

    If I knew you were looking for ‘The God Delusion’, I would’ve mailed you the e-book that I have.. if you can stare at your monitor for long hours..

    BTW, we have met.. I’m Jeeta’s friend (Biswajeeta to you I guess). We had met when you were in BTM a couple of months back.

    Anyways, keep blogging n keep in touch.

  2. @Rohit I wouldn’t have minded but I think I prefer real books anyway. Thanks though 🙂
