What are you reading? - A book tag!

Emaan's Mom tagged me on this book tag where I need to pick up a book that I'm reading, go to page 123, find the 5th sentence and write the next 3 sentences here.

I'v recently started reading "The Twentieth Wide" by Indu Sundaresan. Although I haven't reached this far in the book as such. Here is the excerpt:

"As the eldest of his seventeen sons and his heir apparent, Amar Singh, came through the doorway to pay his last respects to his father, his turban caught on one of the slats of the roof and was wrenched off his head. So Pratap Singh, that mighty Rana who had staved off the Mughal empire, died with this image in his mind: that his son, turbanless and so relaced would live a life of ease. That he would not rule for very long."

So now to tag 5 more people, I can only think of 3 people Ami, Life begins & Monika.


  1. Strange tag...but shall do it...
    Perhaps a crux of the book would have been great.
    And recommendation also, if it's worth it.

  2. I agree with life begins... ist a strange tag anyways will take it up sometime soon

  3. What a passage to arouse one's emotions. So much packed into it.
