Kudos for Kiran

Ms. Kiran Desai is her name
(She’s the daughter of a writer with fame)
To writing she took
And her second book
On the Man Booker Prize laid its claim!

    Ms.Desai, writing in her own way
    may have left everyone agog
    Ms.Ray, rhyming in her own way
    weaves words together on her blog
    Ms.Desai may have won
    But to me,Ms.Ray is second to none!
    P.S:Even I am proud of what I was able to compose today!

  2. Hey thanks! Am glad you find this blog interesting :)

    Hi Aparna,
    I find it challenging and intellectually stimulating,so I visit as frequently as I can.Since you are so good at words, maybe you should try a Blog with just crosswords...I will come there as well!!
    By the way how are you promoting your blog?Are you on Orkut/YahooGroups?This is a very good Blog.You should let the world know.And looks like you have another one in Bengali as well?My browser can't read it(even if it did,it wouldn't make a difference)?
    Take it easy!
