I am back

…I think.

Met a deadline two days ago, I wouldn’t say with aplomb, but more along the lines of limpingly.  I wrote less number of proposals than usual, and with two of the four I wrote, I am not too satisfied.  Still into all life, some rain must fall.

Talking of rains.  We finally got a few showers this past week.  Not enough to sustain man, but enough to perk up the plants outside.  And cool the city that was beginning to fume.  I love this weather again.  But, we need more rain.  Lot more rain.   The drought is pretty menacing already.

I will write more, but for now, I have a grad-school classmate lunch ahead of me.

Just a small note to say, I hope you haven’t forgotten me.


Hiatus or not

  1. The kid’s school reopens Monday and it will take us a week or so to get into some sort of sane routine.
  2. A whopper work deadline on 22nd.

So, I may not be around here too much.

Or I may.

Lets see how it goes. Meanwhile send me lots of energy for the next fortnight.

Also, to heck with anonymity…obviously the confident, stylish lady on the still of the video that you see below is not me, but I am there somewhere.  As is the kid ! Not hard to spot at all.


Indian summer

It is 10.30 AM and the mercury has touched 40 C (~104 F).  Today is forecast to be the hottest day in the past ten years in our part of the world.

So, people in the eastern portion of peninsular India, stay safe and cool.  Try not to use the AC – you’ll only be throwing out more hot air outside.  Drink a lot of water and stay indoors, if possible.

Unless, of course, you have to go to the gym because you already missed the gym two days in a row.  Oh bother.


I am taking a few days off blogging. Partly because WP is driving me nuts by asking me if it can guzzle space on my computer for its database called Calypso, and no customer service assistance forthcoming for my problem.

I think I may have to move homes yet again, but I need some time to decide.

And a bit of digital detox as well.


Teeter or totter?

The see saw is swinging to the other end now.  The original end.  I am almost afraid to put it in words lest it totters from teeter again – I am having trouble typing with all fingers crossed.

Meanwhile back in HQ now.

Life shall resume as usual.
