A Sherlock Fan!!!


I know ...I know...declaring my love for Sherlockism will probably get me listed as a nerd.. but to be fair..the characters got something in it that attracts attention..just saying for the non sherlockians out here...

I m.. totally an outright fan of the adventurous and mysterious stories of Sherlock Holmes. Again, being a nerd I am.. I have read each story of the famous sleuth for almost more than a hundred times.. that is each story in segregation. Watched all available vidoes too.. though i mostly prefer Jeremy bretts portryal of the historic fiction detective.

Every word penned by Sir Arthur of this marvellous character makes u read each story again and again. It did seem mundane and drabbing in the beginning.. but a lot depends upon ones interest in reading these genre of the older writing style..the descriptions of a victorian english era..all the romanticism attached to it.. Infact i m an ardent fan of older english novels. Love the way they are so full of meadows, moors, shires, villas, english villages...thats what intrigued me first to read it.

My encounter with the legendary sleuth was a little weird.... I was in the school library.. a 15 year old chap I was way back then.. the sort who wanted to brag and show off his literary interests among his peers...hehehe.. always wanting to read the thickest and the most dusky book in the corner.. trying to represent a taste of the rustic...thats how I was.. still rustic I am even now.. I saw this thick book.. which i remember now was a collection of all the stories and novels of sherlock holmes complied in one huge book. I saw it lying in the corners of the enlish literature section. Took it out... Hadn't even heard about the gentlemen detective ever in my life before..never had an iota about how famous this characterter already was.. I took out the book just to show off...but of course i did read all the books i took out of the library to show off.. so that was one merit to be fair.

i started reading it right from the beginning... now as with sherlock I am a person who is always keen on method and order in whatever I do.. except for the pitiful writing..haha.. So i always read a book in order.. never try to skip from the first story to the middle or end. So my first encounter with the Sherlock story was... "A Study In Scarlet". So you see I was introduced to Sherlock Holmes in a very orderly fashion. Right from the story where he made his first debut. Interesting it was... it reminded me of the TV serial I used to watch back at home a couple of years back. The character was called "Byomkesh Bakshi" a bengali sleuth with a side kick similar to Dr.Watson. I was like.. oh this story is similar to that serial.. but this was written way before I saw this Indian serial... Thus begun my journey into the world of literature on legendary sleuth characters.. from Hercule Poirot, to Agatha Christies stories..it was an interesting journey....

But having read so many of Hercules and agatha's stories.. Sherlock Holmes still stands out in the list of intriguing and enjoyable stories I have read.. i have always wanted to visit Baker street 221B.. and one day.. I will.

Innocent Ramblings!!!!



Very new here.. so forgive me if I tend to circumlocute over every nook and corner of reason and logic in establishing my opinion..Quite a new thing for me.. blogging.. perhaps a new thing for many an aspiring Tibetans who want to write something..who want to vent out whats been inside them..especially the youth. definitely a new thing for me to do online...Anyhow..as i have decided to begin this journey of self expresion.. introvert as I am.. but a platform like this will definitely help in at least getting my petty little ideas out in the web world for the least...

As it is... i see a lot of Tibetans writing.. young, old and the really old ones too(disgustingly)..writing about freedom, about buddhism and so many other isms.. anything related with the word Tibet...

I will restrain myself from venturing into those areas.... perhaps may be sometimes.. but not always...yet i would like to write.. I would like to write about things closer to my heart..of course as a Tibetan..but just wanted to make sure that I am not in the band wagon of freedom mongering..slogan shouting..hulla bulloo.. of a people.. not that they are any sort of worst group.. but my identity is separate..I m the silent and the restless young Tibet...the frustrated..ones.. the pessimistic ones.. the complaning ones.. the never taken seriously ones..yes I m one of these. Fruitless or fruitful.. i will begin my ramblings and possibly hope that something good will come out of it.. yes.. yes.. yes..I m the lazy..sort.. always the demanding sort.. never yet acting sort.. but hey.. m considering the blogging act.. as my perhaps the first action...so bear with me...

Don bother about the style... not here to prove my literary calibre...so.. hate me.. love me... ignore me.. or watever you please.. thus shall i begin.. my ramblings... of all sorts.. of here and there..meaningless..meaningful...So Get Ready!!!!!!!!
