Shades Of Words

Afghanistan, Australia and United Kingdom


As part of my Lost in Translation  project I am striking of the following three geographies of my list.

Afghanistan : The Kite Runner , Khaled Hosseini Birlliant storytelling – must read for everyone. Our review is at




Australia – 48 Shades of Brown , Nick Earls A funny coming age of story based in Australia. Not one of the best written but definitely a good light read. Our review at




United Kingdom – The Code of the Woosters, PG Wodehouse Needs no introduction – probably most representative of wry British humour – if you havent read Wodehouse then you haven’t laughed. Really. Our review at

Before talking about who we are, we’d like to tell you a bit about how and why Shades of Words came into being. It all started with the idea of “A place where we could share with likeminded people about things we enjoy. From books to music to movies to travel; Shades of Words was to be a place about the best of our experiences” We thought about why should anyone read us? The answer was that whatever we review would be a mix of our experience of the thing along with interesting and useful information about it. So in case you are reading us regularly or even checking us out once in a while then we have succeeded in our efforts someway somewhere. Who are we? Known as Kapil Sood and Vipula Gupta, we thought of Shades of Words on one fine Sunday afternoon. Tired of writing interesting RFP’s and project documentation; we decided to give this a shot. Yes! We work in Indian IT industry. Cupid struck us while were innocently slogging together on the highly intricate job of formatting and beautifying documents! And since then, we have been working together to establish Shades of Words as a place that we can claim as ours. (Because buying a house is still years away!) What else? Kapil also writes some blogs which you can read here and here.
