My wife’s night is spent in watching the news, celebrity gossip, TV Serials and commercials. She is a couch potato.
I am also a couch potato but my tastes are remarkably different. I lie on the bed ruminating about visiting famous art galleries—about my favorite artists like Van Gogh, Picasso and Dali. I would also love to travel to exotic places and fever my pen with exciting relish. I have also the joy of sharing thoughts on Philosophy, Poetry and Fiction.
Yes couch potatoes are stunningly different.
The Book Satanic Verses by Salman Rushdie is banned in India for its blasphemy for the Muslims. However, to my happiness, I got one smuggled out of Canada. It lay in my shelf for many years without being read. The day I picked it up for reading, my conservative wife told she has consumed it to the flames. I wonder why Indians are raising such a hullaballoo for a book.
