There was this note by my cousin - Khushboo on Facebook some time back about listing fifteen books (in really short span of time with some other wacky (whacky?) ‘rules’). One of the rules talked about listing ‘the first fifteen books I’ve read’. One, it was real hard remembering fifteen book titles, let alone having read them. Two, what's the point?

Anyway, so here’s the list of first fifteen book-titles I could recall. I’m afraid I haven’t completed reading them all, but that’s not mentioned as mandatory in the ‘rules’. So I’m good. Here’s the list. (Oh, here are the ‘rules’ for the convention sake.)

Rules: Don't take too long to think about it. List fifteen books you've read that will always stay with you. List the first fifteen you can recall in less than 15 minutes. Tag friends, including me, because I'm interested in seeing what books my friends choose. 

  1. Bedtime Mailbox - Dr A Bakthavatsalam
  2. Being Indian – Pavan K Varma
  3. Buddha, His Life and Teachings - Osho
  4. Business Lessons for Entrepreneurs - Mark D Csordos
  5. Company of Women - Khushwant Singh
  6. Death at My Doorsteps - Khushwant Singh
  7. Dhirubhaism - A G Krishnamurthy
  8. Five Point Someone - Chetan Bhagat
  9. From Sex to Superconsciousness - Osho
  10. Gandhi: A Sublime Failure - S. S. Gill
  11. Ganghi, Gandhism and the Gandhians - Thomas Weber
  12. India Unbound - Gurcharan Das
  13. Indian Muslims – Where Have They Gone Wrong? - Dr Rafiq Zakaria
  14. Notes to Myself – Hugh Prather
  15. Power of Now - Eckhart Tolle
  16. The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari - Robin S. Sharma
  17. Train to Pakistan – Khushwant Singh
  18. Wings of Fire - Dr A P J Kalam

(Oops! That makes it eighteen. Chuck the rules!)
