a trivial act may make a big difference to someone else

Saturday, July 7th, 2007

I feel somewhat silly writing a small thing like this making a mountain out of a molehill, had forgotten about it, but just recollected it when I got the Smile Newsletter which said : “Share A Kindness Story. Please tell us of a kind act you’ve done, experienced, or even heard of. “ Since we don’t know […]

procession at Malleswaram

Friday, February 23rd, 2007

Procession at Malleswaram 18th Cross Ganesha temple this evening (TN Seetharam was a special guest though as I was watching the procession, didn’t go near the dias where I could’ve probably seen him).

Gandhi in Malleswaram

Monday, October 2nd, 2006

Was passing by the Gandhi Bhavan in Malleswaram on an evening walk with my wife and noticed a notice outside of some lecture going on inside. I’d sort of taken for granted that any lecture there was probably for old people who had nothing else to do, but Vijetha went over and had a look […]

the reluctant autorickshaw

Sunday, May 7th, 2006

The following is something I’d written a while ago in a “learn kannada” forum… Real life incidents though not exactly verbatim… Auto-rickshaw drivers of Bangalore nowadays have become more selective than infy in ‘choosing’ their ‘projects’! They usually refuse to go wherever a passenger wants to go, and drive off, and one has to stop […]
