The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Gailbraith (JK Rowling)

The famous Harry Potter novelist is back. And back with a bang. A Pseudonym to relieve herself of all the pressure on her, seems to have done the trick for Rowling. In her latest novel which is a murder mystery, she seems to have rediscovered the magic she seemed to have lost after the Potter series, in her slack, disappointing adult fiction, The Casual Vacancy.

However, as the story unfolded, it became clearer and clearer. At the end I was left dumbstruck by the sheer ingenuity of the concept.

I signed up to the Coursera course 'Introduction to Improvisation' after seeing a friend's recommendation on twitter. The course instructor was the acclaimed jazz vibes player Gary Burton, who is also a lecturer at Berklee College of Music. I had imagined the syllabus to cover conceptual ideas about jazz improvisations; explaining phrasing and story-telling perhaps - but in fact the course was solidly based in music theory. Most of the guidelines Gary delivered over the weekly video lectures were simple, and applicable in a live playing situation; offering an insight into the almost instantaneous thought processes that Gary and other very experienced jazz men employ when playing solo.

She is obsessed about movies. Appreciation for her writings gives her a better high than vodka. She dreams to give away autographed copies of her authored books to her fans. She can be contacted via her Facebook page too.

I was born a five hundred rupee note at the Currency Note Press at Nasik on October 2, 2000. I was not always like you see me now, all laminated. Lamination has kind of immortalised me for a bit, but the things with the immortality is that it comes with a price. The price being, my loss of, freedom. Sure, many people come, see me on my owner’s table and enquire about me. It is wonderful narrating my story, I love the attention, but there are days that I rancour my immortality which has been purchased at the price of life itself. Every inch of my laminated body itches to feel the touch of the breeze, get soaked in the rain, feel the affection of the human touch.
