awesome. thts how i define "achievement", need not be associated with a sense of completion, but can always look at this as a foundation to the more profound architectural magnanimity that you are destined to build.
i am totally in sync with the book design concepts and eager to read everything inside it . :)

Aparna Kar said...

Thanks :)
You'll be one of the very few to get the free copies:D
I am not really excited about it or anything, as you put it- no "sense of completion" yet, but yes it is definitely(underscore) a step towards a journey I plan to continue.
The book has been the result of the toil of many others who have made unceasing efforts to choose the right graphics, edit and re-edit the text a number of times, the arrangements for the forthcoming launch, the necessary publicity after that and so on and so forth.

They are extremely busy individuals with worldly affairs of their own. Nevertheless the appreciation and encouragement I have received from them is incredible.

Personally , I'd prefer to write something more deep and more lasting. A fiction. A novel with 600 pages maybe :)

The compilations of my posts is just the beginning. I began blogging when I was in college. My view about the world was superficial then and of a typical 20 year old. But I believe I have matured now and will continue to grow in the coming years.

I have a vague idea of what I intent to publish next. I am just waiting for the right time.

candid diary said...

Congrats.
I am ready to hang around for the second book and I am sure the waiting will be worth it.
Take time but please come out with a book (600 pages, fiction -you said)worth your talent.

Aparna Kar said...

@saikat
u bet!!
Kick boxing with u in public places was the joy of my life :))

And sometimes only to see her expression was worth doing it :D
Btw, did u know she's coming over to my pad this Monday?
Old times again.. well almost..

Aparna Kar said...

@candid diary
I don't know candid. I seem to be suffering from writer's block lately. Maybe too many things are on my mind right now. But I promise I won't disappoint you. Even it takes another 10 years

saikat said...

going to spice for movies: Rs 450

riding a rickshaw for the same: Rs 10

The dinner before that: Rs 200

kick boxing with you in the middle of the mall and catching her shocked expression with the corner of my eye: PRICELESS

There are somethings in life which will never come back...for everything else you have something called future

arnab said...

@aparna - congratulations! hmm... wondering how to butter you up, so that i can get a free copy of your next book :P as you can see, grad students will do anything for freebies!
