I liked things better when I didn't understand them. - Bill Watterson

Since I am writing this blog from 2014, I am little bit irritated about reading columns in newspapers, books, magazines, writing, putting my thought’s into my personal diary, etc. that are related to leadership and leader.

In fact I am not able to find any MBA books which was written by women most of all MBA books written by men in India. Oops! No in my world….Right! So, I searched as many as my MBA related books in my college library in January 2013 itself. But the final outcome….no books with women authors.

I am little bit disappointed and I put off all books aside for a week of course it’s January and month of New Year 2015. So, I started searching for some books in my brother’s and sister’s bookshelf. There I found three books – thoughts provoking nature books.

The first question in your mind arises - “Did you read this three books swetha? Yes I read and I wrote this in my blog. As I am blog writer, I took three hours to complete reading and understanding of these three books. If you are good at reading skills, you can complete them in an hour and a half.

BILL WATTERSON is an American cartoonist and the author of the comic strip Calvin and Hobbes. Watterson is known for his views on licensing and comic.

CALVIN AND HOBBES is a daily comic strip by American cartoonist Bill Watterson that was syndicated from November 18, 1985 to December 31, 1995. It follows the humorous antics of Calvin, a precocious, mischievous, and adventurous six-year-old boy, and Hobbes, his sardonic stuffed tiger.

CALVIN is a fictional character. Calvin demonstrates a level of wisdom, vocabulary and humor unusual for a six year-old boy. However, in many ways he is typical for his age: he absolutely hates baths, and fears and hates his babysitter, refuses to go to school, frequently disobeys his parents, and is lazy and selfish. Calvin frequently loses himself in various fantastical worlds of his own imagining. On the rare occasions on which he applies himself, Calvin's projects in school are very well received, to his confusion or indifference. He shows relatively minor interest or success in interacting with any "real" characters, choosing instead to spend the majority of his time with Hobbes, with whom he frequently embarks on imaginary adventures, debates philosophical issues, plots various pranks against girls, and fights.

HOBBES is one of the two main characters in the comic strip Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson. He is Calvin's stuffed tiger and best friend, and is depicted with two distinct identities.

I have never felt any difference in these two writers narrating skills. (Narration is a technique which at its simplest means “telling back”.) So, if you had found any difference feel free to comment on this article.
