Shades Of Words

About Us

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!)

  1. This is very interesting but you could add more about what sort of books you like and all. 🙂
    Probably do the memes.

    Whatever you mentioned about the RFPs is so true, and I can empathize on that for sure 😀

  2. I was away last week but allow me belatedly to introduce myself as suggested for BBAW.

    My book blog is called Pursewarden (link attached) who, as I’m sure you know, is a character (a novelist) in the “Alexandria Quartet”, which would probably be my desert island book.

    I am a speed reader – a product of being brought up in a house without television and haunting the local library – and read about 250 books a year. There is so much I could write about, but I try to restrict myself to literary fiction and you will see that the posts have a particular bias towards unjustly neglected novelists. I hope you will visit. By the way, I welcome reciprocal links with other book bloggers. It’s good to build a real sense of community and facilitate visitors moving from one blog to another.

    I am also a writer myself. You may have come across “Major Benjy”, my continuation of E.F. Benson’s wonderful “Mapp and Lucia” stories, which I wrote with the blessing of Benson’s estate. There are another two of these on the way.

    Best wishes, and happy blogging!
