Support Anna INDIA!

Few weeks back, the entire country was hip hopping on the tunes of World Cup 2011 and prayed for Team India to win the cup for us. Why we prayed for them...did any one of us got to touch the cup or got to kiss it in front of gateway of India? or did it increased the shaan of any one of our's drawing rooms? No...we all prayed for our country...for INDIA...coz we cannot see it losing..losing to anyone.

We were patriotic when MS Dhoni picked up the World Cup. We felt goosebumps all over our body when Dhoni hit that historic six. Nationalism ran into our bloods when we saw Yusuf Pathan carrying Sachin on his shoulders, parading all aroud Wankhede. We are still celebrating the emotions and feelings of being World Champions...coz we are proud Indians.

Now again our country needs us.After World Cup, Anna Hazare has given us the chance to stand for our rights and fight against corruption. To show the world that we cannot see our country losing, nor in the game of cricket nor to corruption. If the amount of people who were hooked to the sports channels on the night of 2nd April, come out and support the cause, there will be no option in front of the goverment but to pass the Janlokpal bill.

The campaign started by Chetan Bhagat to support the movement
It's the time to act, to stand up and do somethng for our country. To show that we are not cricket crazy patriotic country...but we are truely fanatic Indians. For our rights, we will leave no stone uuturn, to see India... a corruption free socitey.  

Guys...stand up for this man of steel and support him. In whatever way you can...come out in open, out of your cocoons and leave this chalta hai attitude. We have to do something to give our children a free nation. Support the movement in every bit.

Book Review: The House at Midnight

Author: Lucie Whitehouse
Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing Plc, London
ISBN: 978 0 7475 9625 7
Pages: 374
First published in 2008

A psychological thriller, the story is horrifying and tragic in its own way. It doesn't take you into paranormal world, but makes you dance high and low onto the dirty secrets of human minds and hearts. After the suicide of his uncle, Lucas Heathfield inherits the Stoneborough Manor, which he imagines to be a place where he and his close friends can spend weekends far away from chaos and noise of London city. 

From the beginning, the house haunts their relationships and effects their emotions in a strange way, especially on Lucas, who leaves his job and shifts to the house permanently with friend Danny, a wild child who becomes responsible for shattered group of friends. Lucas obsesses himself with alcohol, drugs and cine films of his uncle and his friends thirty years earlier. With these cine films escapes the dark secrets of high sexual emotions, love and tensions of his family, very similar to his own group. The group meets at a final dinner party at the house, which changes their lives forever, ruining friendships. 

From all the characters, the house is the biggest character, changing colors with every dramatic twist in the story. In the beginning, it becomes the point of admiration for its art, paintings and charismatic character of its owner Patrick, but as the events in the story unfolds it becomes a lusty ghost trying to cast spell on each of them while becoming a reason of shattering friendships, family relations and innocent trust at the end.  

The House at Midnight is a thriller, moving in its own pace, compelling the reader to accompany it. It gyrates around sinister desires, emotions and passions of failed and existing relationships . Author creates an atmosphere which pulls the reader into it, makes  him a part of the group, experiencing the evil leer of the house. An irresistible page turner!
