Last night I finished reading the best book I have ever read in my life...........ja ja ek kan lees!

Author: Alfred Lansing
Book: Endurance [Sir Ernest Shackleton's Trans-Antarctica expedition of 1914 - 1917]
About: One of the most incredible survival adventure stories of all time!

The intention was to cross the Antarctic continent from one coast to the other via the South Pole. In the event, the expedition never set foot on continental Antarctica. The expedition managed to survive the loss of their ship in the middle of the Antarctic pack ice at a time when there was no chance of contacting the outside world, let alone of being rescued. They survived the ordeal for 24 moths and 22 days before the whole crew of 28 men were saved by the team leader Ernest Shackleton himself.

A must read!
I couldn't find this book anywhere, my wife had to order it and it took 9 weeks to arrive but it was worth the wait!

Animal farm by George Orwell.

Satire written after the Russian revolution .... written 60 odd years back and it has never been more relevant than right here right now.
