Another Book Tag...

This time the tag requires me to reach out for the nearest book, open page 123, grab the fifth line and add the next three lines to the blog-post.

So, I have reached out and picked up the nearest book. It is titled 'A House for Mr. Biswas' and the author is V. S. Naipaul. I have opened page 123. However, I think I shall grab the third line instead of the fifth.
"I see you have got your name in the papers," Seth said.
Mr. Biswas shrugged.
The gods swung slowly in the hammock, frowning.
As for what the book is all about, I have no idea, for I have not read it. The tag, after all, mentioned reaching out for the nearest book and nothing at all about reading it!

Well done Mr. Sidhu but u get 0/10..u actually got 5/ 10 for u havn’t read the book; but then I realized 5 marks need to be deducted for late submission as well so 5-5 = 0 ….sorry can’t help :P

Waisay I don’t know y but reading the book title and this character Mr. Biswas reminds me of Mr. Waglay and his serial Waglay ki dunya

Oh…If I knew before that you are such a tough examiner, I would’ve delivered a container of lassi and a box of sweets, well in advance, at your house.

The character Wagle was created on the basis of ‘the common man’ in the daily cartoon that R. K. Laxman draws for The Times of India.

@Sujata: The pleasure, as they say, is all mine!

@UTP: As a rule, I never pass on a tag, even as I never refuse to do one.
