Weakness

So I finally did it: no, I am not proud of it, I was drunk and I was weak, and yes, I gave in. Go on, judge me, call me shallow, say I am a hypocrite. I know I deserve it…

As much as I hate him, as much as I criticize him, as much as I abuse him on public forums, I am still one of those people who go back to him, especially when they are feeling low…

As much as I consider myself an intellectual snob, I still fall for the on-your-face temptation…

And as much as I try to restrain myself, at the end of it, I ALWAYS find myself turning back…

So yes, despite being true to my resolve for six months, I finally read Chetan Bhagat’s latest book, "Revolution 2020", and almost as if to rid myself of the guilt, I also read a NON-FICTION, “Stasiland: Stories from Behind the Berlin Wall” by Anna Funder…

The latter is worth a read, and as for the former, I don’t dwell on my mistakes

Hahah!! :) Funny yet true. It is SUCH a sad thing that we grow from Sidney Sheldon, Jeffery Archer, John Grishmans, Ken, Crichton and ALL that and over sometime we cant accept we read fiction. We are too wise for that! :D

But, 2020 and Sidneys give us SO much girth and wings at low times - Do we accept it? No. We dont even accept the fact that we are weak for that matter!!

And here you have accepted both - weakness, your love for those books!

So what I see is a STRONG woman Shimonti! (got your name right?) No? Forgive me! :o)

@smita
ohh it's fine. I think I hate him enough for the two of us :)

@kappu
no no no... I am NOT weak on a regular basis. I DO NOT read these books and I NO LONGER buy them. And my name is pronounced Shimonti but spelt Simanti.
