    when I saw his tweet yesterday , I was like "I've read this BEFORE" :frusty: (I'm a crazy reader :madgrin: ) then...I thought more and, I was, okay, I've read this like it is, which means, in English :nerd: which means, when I was living in India :mod: then, I "did som book browsing" into my english library, and tada! :doh: poem!!! :D
    As a teacher, I spend my days into books, and there's nothing that I remember better than lines from a book:thumb: and when I find that Shah reads or has read same books than me, so much that he quotes sentences it makes me SO happy :target:
     
    Jasmine, Yeh Dil, Neeran and 1 other person say thanks.

    hehe another tweet which is another clue :target:

    But I'm still decoding :spy:

    will not allow anyone to look for misplaced items...like won't ask for directions.rib pain is ok...can't accept it hurts. Oh to be a man!

    Tweet from 3rd of jan 2010

    I'm sure it's a wink to make us think about "Why men won't ask for directions" by Richard C. Francis

    wow, I'm still amazed by how eclectic are his choices...
    Poems...then barry's funny wit
    then this one which is a damn serious book which critics the "sociobiology"...(and all those in 3 days :becky: )

    Book in tweet again :becky:

    10th January 2012 (via Twitter for Blackberry)
    Waiting for Godot?? A small part of our animal clan in the zoo called Mannat. Dash & Hulk. http://yfrog.com/nygbmvmj

    Samuel Beckett, originally written in French : En Attendant Godot
    (totally adore this one, :lol: I even had to translate it in old Latin when a student :nerd: )
    Now, my question is, since he seems to be "attacked" by french words nowaday, could it be possible that he reads it in French? :eek2:
    Anyway, this new avatar of Vladimir and Estragon is cute :D
     
    Jasmine, Anjali72, Ella and 2 others thanked this.
  13. Yeh Dil

    Yeh Dil He is my live

    How does he make this. So many books, sometimes even simultaneously, and then the scripts and his work and events.
    'm an absolute bookworm, but that's supernatural. SRK must be a computer like G.one :D

    tweet from 4th June 2012
    "on a reading spree..Martial writes : Only the dead do honors gain, I prefer to carry on Alive and without acclaim"

    :spy: extract from Martial, Epigram, and if I'm right, he speaks about the poem number I, 25 :

    edited : "Cineri gloria sera uenit." which means "glory comes too late to a man who is ashes."
     
    niloofari, Jasmine and iamsrking thank this.

    Another book by Ayn Rand that Shah Rukh Khan mentioned was the Fountainhead. In the November 2011 issue of Hi! Blitz, page 136, he said; "Ayn Rand's Fountainhead was a life-changing book."

    Reading "Mirrors" by Eduardo Galeano recommended by @iamsrk... an amazing retelling of history thru lives of forgotten ones. Must read!
