It’s funny that this rant of mine is actually playing out in my head as if the words are being spoken out loud by the very characters. That obviously means I’ve been watching way too much of the show, not that I can do much about it. I’m at the fag end of Season 9 and there are, like what, 32 more episodes to watch before I go insane and shoot myself?
200 movies!! Yippeeee! So it took 8 months to score a double century. At this rate, the 1000 mark will probably be reached only by March or April 2020. Huff! Wonder how people collected million DVDs. I don’t even know if I’ll have such a high paying job I’m 2020.
Anyway, I’m happy to share my first harvest. This activity did take a lot of time during weekends, and stopped me from paying attention towards blogging. Plants, after all require more attention till they can carry on their own.

These two simple steps costing about INR 1000/- ensured that the 11000L of water that we collect in our main underground storage sump can now serve us for about 22-25 days as against 8-10 days before we adopted these changes.
So, the first big step I actually took was to stop using bathing soap as well as shampoo. Now that’ll come as a shock to most of my readers and right now you may be wondering if I stink because I don’t use soap!
So, I lost about 2k on the bicycle, about 5 days of vacation, INR 7000 for removing my teeth. I gained nothing out of any of this.
“From Darkness, lead me to Light” says a famous line from the Upanishads – a knowledge bank from ancient India. It’s such an irony that Indians are probably among the most superstitious peoples of the world, lost in the darkness with eyes wide open, not wanting to perceive what they see.
So when you accidentally hear these two parties discussing something about you, you tend to pay a little attention.
She meowed in a low shaky voice and was hardly heard by the trees around her.
Bengaluru is dying as much because of you and not just because of a failed administration. Save your city from flooding. Wake up!
A milestone has been reached. 100 blog posts!
“You heard about Abhishek?” A friend asked me on phone. “He died, in an accident. His new wife, his brother-in-law …
I pulled out an old walking stick lying in the cupboard and tried helping him (the squirrel) gain his freedom. I was the young man with the stick, he was the oppressed, decked in grey, white and black, panicking, squeaking, protesting my foreign presence yet getting tangled more and more in the mesh of twigs.
Could I’ve managed it better? No. There’s no way out of this routine. Not until parents come back. Not until someone can cook your breakfast and dinner.
I could’ve been many things, but I didn’t become those. Not because I didn’t want to become any of those, but because I wanted to become all of those. And sticking to that line of thought, trying to be everything, I never paid enough attention to any single time.
When we talk about partners, two obvious meanings are derived – one that means a life partner, can be a spouse, a live-in partner, a lover and the other that’s in the context of businesses.
