The story
After seven long years Muralidharan (played by Mohanlal) returned to Kerala, India, his homeland. He was happy since he had been missing home so much. His two brothers and their families were eager to receive him. His sister-in-laws had even made special meals for him. Everybody was happy that their dear Murali was home. Or so it seemed.

When Murali announced that he would not be going back to Dubai, it was apparent that the family was deeply shocked and annoyed. I…

Home Sweet Home!!

Some of you might have wondered where I had disappeared these past few days. Guess what?? I am back home- in the beautiful God’s own country of Kerala!!Well, it all happened quite suddenly. I was fed up of the cold and windy climate of Bradford and longed for the warm climate in Kerala. Moreover I was very homesick. So what else to do but to book tickets, pack our bags and to set off as soon as possible??On 14th March we caught the National Express from Bradford and reached Heathrow airport at 7 a.m. the next day. On 15th March we reached Kerala. The trip was quite tiresome but how wonderful it felt to see all the happy and familiar faces that received us!!
So I am fully relaxed now and enjoying the warm climate and adoring the occasional downpour here. A festival is going on in the temple near our house and the loudspeakers are on full blast! Well, I don’t mind; all that matters is that I am home- Home sweet home!!

Book Review: Evil Under the Sun by Agatha Christie

It has been many years since I first read Evil under the Sun. I got it from the library a few days back and read it once again. And found it equally interesting even this time. A perfect Hercule Poirot mystery!!

Book: Evil Under the Sun
Author: Agatha Christie
First published in 1941 by William Collins Sons & Co. in London, and by Dodd, Mead & Co. in New York
Detective: Hercule Poirot
Genre: Fiction, Murder mystery
Location: Smugglers’ Island off Leathercombe Bay, England Widgets

Poirot's Holiday
The story starts with Hercule Poirot, the famous Belgian detective ('with an egg shaped head'), enjoying a holiday at the Jolly Roger Hotel, Smugglers’ Island. The introduction of Poirot is very interesting, it tells us what sort of a character he is:
“There was one very important person (in his own estimation at least) staying at the Jolly Roger...”

(Agatha Christie sure made her detective overly proud of himself and larger than life..I remember reading somewhere that sh…
