Nurturing Thursday: Relax

Many suggested that I should take some time off. I should relax. I told myself. Yes it’s time to relax. But how…

I ordered two books while dreaming about “cosy autumn setting” and me. The first book I got was “the handmaid’s tale” by Margaret Atwood and the other was “Uncle Tom’s cabin; or life among the Lowly” by Harriet Beecher Stowe.

The story in the first book is set in modern times where as the latter was first published in 1879.

The stories revlove around a particular class (though different in each book) of society subjected to/destined to serve others. These people are denied any right and are not considered as humans what so ever.

No need to say that I forgot the word relax when I started reading these books. I just learn one thing, I need to be a better person.

No two leaves are alike, and yet there is no antagonism between them or the branches on which they grow ~Mahatma Gandhi

I would like to thank a fellow blogger who suggested Uncle Tom’s cabin to me a couple of months ago. I ordered it then, but something went wrong and I didnot see the book then I reordered and made sure that my name is in the list. I was fourth on the waiting list.
