Folks by the Window

Consultant, Artist, Wife. Her heart is in the reverse order, her actions keep everyone guessing and art is always stuck in the middle. She gets attached to genres and revels in them till they are either exhausted or if something interesting comes along the way. Expect to read reviews about a lot of classics – she’s bent on ticking off some from the ‘1001 Books to Read Before you Die’ list.

A closet introvert, who can't help talking, reading, analysing and pursuing various seasonal pet projects - not necessarily in that order. Suffers serious withdrawal symptoms if no readable material is at hand. So, what gives her a bigger high than reading a book? Talking about it to a kindred soul! This window is 'home' to her in the best possible sense. Here she will tell you what she saw, felt, thought when reading a book. Genre no bar.

A typical taurean who craves for all things beautiful and good, with books right at the top of the list. She has no discretion when it comes to choice of books though. For she believes, that every book presents a view of the world that one cannot otherwise fathom. And here you will see glimpses of that world she conjures along with the famous, the forgotten and perhaps the unheard of too!


  1. Look forward to hear you views...both form the window as well as about the books.

  2. Thanks Fauji. Was going to request you to be a guest writer once we'd written about a few books here. What say?

    zid, arth: Meet Bidisha Fouzdar aka Fauji. Dear friend, and kindred soul. Will say no more.

  3. Hey Bidisha, hope you remember me from S's house at royapettah, and a day at office. I thought of u just today (based on what S said abt u) when we started work for an NGO. Thanks for visiting and being the first commenter here! And yes, we'd love to have u write here as well...Book lovers are a close next (unfortunately) to smokers when it comes to welcoming folks into their community :-)

  4. Hi Fauji,

    Thanks for dropping by and we hope to see more of you around...
