Last night some of my juniors asked me what to say when asked in an interview "Tell me something about yourself". Since it's mostly an ice breaker everyone should be well prepared for this question. While i was listening to their answers; what surprised me most was that the term "Voracious reader" was on almost every other about me. It sounded pleasant that so many people are actually reading these days, but what dazed me the fact that most of them had just read two or three the most obvious books that every Indian youth have read.

What Voracity really meant for them was books from the bookshelf of the Average Indian " Voracious Reader", which at most consist of these 10 books.

Who else here is Voracious Reader ? :P




P.S - I didn't made it to offend anyone. It is just a personal Thought.

And for all the Indiblogger follower of Topic - What would your dream library look like? #DreamLibrary .here is what my dream library would look like :D .
