"It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife." - the opening lines in Pride & Prejudice that have a "fame life" of their own. I discovered yesterday that Jane Austen did not even write these lines! Oh you nosy Cassandra!
Po Bronson's Grotto caught my fancy sometime ago but I never got a chance to mention it. It is somewhat a working chummery. I like this idea because it changes the fact the working on your own means working alone. Disparate groups can motivate and nurture independent workers. Interesting.
Salinger's Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters is my favorite among his works. I really admired the style of writing in Raise High... and here is why. Franny & Zooey ranks a close second. Catcher in the Rye was never my number one probably because I do not relate to the angst of the growing male having never had an inkling of it myself!
Open Writing looks worthy of some surfing.
A quick run through of Chennai's restaurants - pretty good list of the better ones (this list for Vimal).
