The Evolution of “Kalyan Mandap”

When I was a teenager, I heard something called Kalyan Mandap. I did not understand what’s that. I knew that weddings were done at home, temples, churches and at the court. Then I came to know that those days people started organizing weddings at a place (hall) called Kalyan Mandap. I did not understand why it’s called as Kalyan Mandap? Why not Wedding Hall or something in Odia? Then I thought, “OK, so people will come here and bless (kalyana in Odia) the newlyweds, so people call this as Kalyan Mandap“.

I’m not twenty seven…

In my last post, I posted a review of the book “The Habit of Winning” as a part of the book review program at BlogAdda.com. Soon after the review, I received another book from BlogAdda.com up for review. This time it was “I’m not twenty four… I’ve been nineteen for five years…” by Sachin Garg. I felt good, as I recently read an awesome book and I am going to read another one. I planned to read it as soon as possible, so that I can write the review within 7 days.

Want to share a book after completing it and read another for free*?

I always want to read books, almost all types: stories, novels, fictions, non-fictions, inspirational, biographies, etc., but no textbooks. I want to read all good books in Oriya, English and translated books of all other languages. I found few in the old trunks of my father containing his old stuffs, bought few, and few gifted by friends. But I able to complete only very few of them – one or two of them. I read few chapters from others. I guess there are one or two books, which I have not yet started reading. As I remember, the last book I have completed is Lajja by Taslima Nasreen (translated to Oriya by Nandini Satpathy.

The story of a Tab

Sushant, a proud owner of iPhone4, once saw Samsung Galaxy Tab P1000 at an airport. Then he thought that this can help him to boost his productivity, specially while he is on the move. Then he decided to get one, but before he asked my suggestion on this. But I asked him not to buy that, but to wait for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 750 to be available for sale in India or pre-order one.
