In a Free State, can we get away with anything?....
My rating: 1 of 5 stars
I read 'In a Free State' with a lot of expectations; Booker prize winning book from Nobel prize winning author!. I was in for a rude shock. Here is a book which lacked any story in the first place. It cannot get any more boring than this. Characters are thrown in without any introduction and referred to without rhyme or reason. The whole book lacks any purpose other than showing Afrikans in bad light.
I cannot help but give this book, the lowest possible rating.
I will think twice before reading another V S Naipaul book.

A lesson on 'Focus' - The 'Mahabharat' way
"What do you see," asked Guru Dronacharya of his pupils, after hanging a wooden bird from the branch of a tree. Only one youngster declared: the eye of the bird, the target decreed by the Guru.
He was Arjuna; he would go on to become one of the greatest archers, if not the most accomplished warrior in mythology.
To be successful in any sphere of life requires similar traits: unflinching focus and unyielding dedication.
My two cents in the form of a mini-story to that statement is as follows:
What do you see? Shouted the examiner from behind.
I looked around. At the large four road intersection, I could see hundreds of vehicles and a thousand pedestrians.
'Only that and nothing else' I said confidently.
'Do you see the bus?
'No..only the dot'
What do you think?
