WWW WEDNESDAY #2 (JULY 15, 2020)

WWW Wednesdays

Hello All,

This is my second WWW Wednesday participation. This meme was formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and revived by Sam on Taking on a World of Words. We just need to answer three questions asked below and leave a link to your post in the comments for others to look at.

I am super excited to share this post with all of you.

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

What Are You Currently Reading?

Today I started reading the book, “Vedic Physics: Scientific Origin of Hinduism” by Raja Ram Mohan Roy. As this was the book listed in my previous “to read book list” I have started reading it. This book comprises of approximately 250 pages but since I have it on my Kindle, the page number varies. I have also provided the link from Goodreads and the summary to this book, in case you missed it from my previous WWW Wednesday Post.

814756

Summary from Goodreads

Rigveda was written about five thousand years ago. We do not know much about the scientific achievements of our ancestors. Is it possible that there were highly advanced civilizations in past, whose technological achievements have been completely forgotten? Now there can be an objective verification, because Rigveda has been remarkably well preserved. Ancient Indians went to extreme lengths to preserve the Vedas. They are in the same form today, that they have been several thousand years earlier. The question is why? Why did generations of Indians go through so much trouble to preserve the Vedas, while the apparent meaning seems to be so mundane. The reason is that Vedas are coded, and once you understand that code, it has such a powerful message that is going to transform your perception of humanity. This book describes the scientific meaning of Vedas and other Hindu scriptures and compares them with currently accepted scientific wisdom.

What did you recently finish reading?

I recently finished reading an e-book, a classic novel, Three Men in A Boat by Jerome K. Jerome. It was tough read for me in the time span of 6 days as I am a slow reader and a mum of two kids. I have to devote hours of reading this book as it had approximately 475 pages around. Yet, the story was too funny and the author linked every incidence with his past experiences. I will be posting the review of this book soon. Stay connected for reading it.

Three Men in a Boat (Three Men, #1)

Summary From Goodreads:

A comic masterpiece that has never been out of print since it was first published in 1889, Jerome K. Jerome’s Three Men in a Boat includes an introduction and notes by Jeremy Lewis in Penguin Classics.

Martyrs to hypochondria and general seediness, J. and his friends George and Harris decide that a jaunt up the Thames would suit them to a ‘T’. But when they set off, they can hardly predict the troubles that lie ahead with tow-ropes, unreliable weather forecasts and tins of pineapple chunks – not to mention the devastation left in the wake of J.’s small fox-terrier Montmorency. Three Men in a Boat was an instant success when it appeared in 1889, and, with its benign escapism, authorial discursions and wonderful evocation of the late-Victorian ‘clerking classes’, it hilariously captured the spirit of its age.

In his introduction, Jeremy Lewis examines Jerome K. Jerome’s life and times, and the changing world of Victorian England he depicts – from the rise of a new mass-culture of tabloids and bestselling novels to crazes for daytripping and bicycling.

What do you think you’ll read next?

This is a tough question indeed for me because I think the “Vedic Physics: Scientific Origin of Hinduism” by Raja Ram Mohan Roy” might take time to complete. I would try to finish reading this book in 4-5 days so that I can start reading another book.

So the next book that I might start reading is not an e-book because i seriously wanted to read something in printed form. I am not at all a Kindle or an e-book fan. This book is “Men Without Women” by Haruki Murakami. This book is on my reading list since long time but I never got a chance to read it. I don’t know why. So, this time I want to give it a try.

29970014

Summary From Goodreads:

Across seven tales, Haruki Murakami brings his powers of observation to bear on the lives of men who, in their own ways, find themselves alone. Here are vanishing cats and smoky bars, lonely hearts and mysterious women, baseball and the Beatles, woven together to tell stories that speak to us all.

Marked by the same wry humor that has defined his entire body of work, in this collection Murakami has crafted another contemporary classic.
 

I hope I would have a happy reading week with nice book collection. What are you reading now or want to read? Please let me know in the comment section below. I would be more than happy to know that. This is all for now. I will meet you all again in my next post. Till then Happy Reading.
