luck at home

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

Yesterday evening’s rain was phenomenal – they were the strongest winds I’d ever seen. From our 10th floor the view of the neighbouring building looked like a waterfall, with water flowing horizontally, it was an amazing sight!

secretiveness versus openness

Thursday, March 25th, 2010

I have occasionally been advised on and off right from childhood: be secretive about what you know.

mirror of relationship with an autorickshaw driver on bangalore roads

Thursday, March 26th, 2009

Its not uncommon to see vehicles on Bangalore roads, typically autorickshaws, leaving a trail of billowing smoke, as if they were one of those sky-writing planes, road-writing some message on the road especially by the convoluted way they drive.
