On what was going on in her mind

When building with her lego blocks, the little-one sometimes gets bored of building similar things. When that happens, she requests me to build something for her, perhaps looking for something new. A new perspective, maybe.

Today, she diligently waited until I finished my dinner. I was a bit surprised. She sat right there waiting. When there were some phone calls I had to answer right after that, she waited further with patience - pacing back and forth with me whilst I spoke on phone. This followed with the usual questions by her - "Who did you speak with?", "What did they ask?".

Ten years on the web

Watching Cricket today was like the old times. Whether or not India wins, the World Cup sure has taken me back to Cricket nostalgia. Somewhere between all this, I just remembered how my own website started as a blog to write about Cricket back then - around 10 years back. It had started out as a little set of HTML pages on Geocities (a service that was provided by yahoo). I had this huge fan page just about Jammy (Rahul Dravid) and much of the website was mainly about Cricket. It was those Cricket crazy days.

Wrestling with BSNL

N R Colony is a very nice locality, except just that getting a broadband connection here is equally tough. For last one week, I've been enjoying living very close to the lovely vegetarian restaurants of Basavanagudi, our usual hang outs of DVG Road, and not-so-polluted air of Bugle rock park. It is back to all-Kannada neighbourhood, which feels more like home (more like Shimoga where I've lived for more years than any other place), but not connected to the Internet all this while.

Met with an accident

Bangalore roads are never easy, even for the experienced. Few years back, I had travelled a great distance on my old bike through the dangerous NH 48 - Bangalore - ShravanaBelagola - Hassan - Shimoga and back without even a scratch or a tinge of bad experience. That was when I had my old and not-so-sophisticated bike as this one. But today was probably just a late dark day of [:http://www.physics.iisc.ernet.in/~baliga/quack/am.html|'Amaavasya'] for me.

Landed in hot and humid Chennai yesterday. No Internet here as Airtel messed up the roaming activation. So, if some of you have mailed me and not got a response - you know why :)

Not eating outside didn't do any difference this time. I'm here sneezing, coughing and eyes kinda burning - not able to do any task that I pick up properly for last few days. Its a sandpaper in my throat. It is more agony with temperature falling and rising like a seesaw ride. :P
