Crosswords in Indiranagar

I almost jumped with joy when I received this communication from Shoppers’ Stop that a Crosswords has come up in Indiranagar and at a very identifiable place too – 12th Main, 5th Cross. Went there today. The size of the store fell far short of my expectations. Bad that my sense of measurement is, I always thought 4000 Sq. feet would mean a space much bigger than that🙂

But still – even if a small one, it will be a good place to spend time once in a while. And I had a paniful realization that I have never splurged freely on books since I started working. I always seemed to have more money in my hand for that purpose in my student life… What the hell! One of these days, I am going to splurge – come what may🙂

By the way, for those looking for an English Translation of “Umrao Jaan” Novel, I saw one copy from Rupa Publications for aroun 300 bucks. Probably you can try to check out for one in a book-store near you. Of course, the price does not beat Rs. 50 that I had paid for Hindi (rather Urdu in Devnagri) edition in Lucknow😛
