The Mists of Simla by Balraj Khanna

Mist of Simla by Balraj KhannaRahul Kapoor is about to take his final exams to enter college in Simla in the foothills of the Himalayas, it is 1962,  it is hot, there is cricket to play, love is in the air and then the Chinese army arrive on the borders of North India.

A book to be read in our Indian summer during September and October – fingers crossed.

The author Balraj Khanna will be responding to any comments posted on Text Tribe.

Re-reading novels – is life too short?

Being a member of a reading group I often find that the book chosen is something I have already read.  I used to feel it was a waste of time to re-read and tried to wing it by looking at a synopis online, but faced with Wolf Hall as our next choice might be wise and useful to re-read it? Will it give me a better ubooks-ahoynderstanding?   I re-read Wuthering Heights in my 30s and was saddened to see Heathcliffe as a tiresome bully instead of the hero of my teenage years.

Perhaps ones initial emotional response to a novel should not be tested with a second read. What do you think?
