The fallen woman

H fell a couple of days back and this post is dedicated to the sling that's holding up her right hand now. DK swears that there was no pothole earlier where she fell but now there is a crater. Not a nice thing to say. But he is also very considerate - he didnt laugh when she first fell. He first helped her up, checked the damage on the road and then let out his giggle.

Another sign that H has moved up in life - I mean, other than the big fat salary she will draw at her new job - is that she went to the hospital where Amitabh Bachchan was admitted. Interesting, but not as interesting as it would have been if she had bumped into Abhishek Bachchan. Slurrppp! So what if half the hormonal women in the country are lusting after him...

Bombay finally happening today... post from there!

Blocked writers

H seems to be struck with some kind of a writers' block. And I have been struck with an extreme case of laziness. Sure, I claim to be busy with work (yeah, right!), but even I don't believe that I couldn't have taken off 10 minutes in the last 5 days to put down a couple of lines on the blog. Mea Culpa and mea confessing (don't know the Latin for 'confessing').

So, I came in this morning to the office with a determined waddle to put up something, anything on the blog. Just to shake myself off the keyboard-sluggishness.

The only thing I can think of is about my trip to Bombay (No! I refuse to say Mumbai. It's Madras, Trivandrum, Calcutta and Mumbai! So there!). Finally, I will see H's personal space, Dk's and her professional space and maybe even associate faces to all the voices I have been dealing with all these years at the Bombay office.

The last time I was in the city by the sea was way back in the last century, 1999. I don't remember much of it other than people, more people, traffic, more traffic and sweating the whole goddamn time! I had more idealistic reasons at that point to be there - I was writing my entrance exam in TISS for Criminology (Gawd! That was another lifetime!).

This time will be more vague - socialising, some pretend-work, some familiarizing with places that I have heard of from H and DK. But mostly, a break from the monotony of coming to Bangalore office, facing a 100-m hurdles dash of towering egos, 'planning' and 'executing' big ideas, enduring Dumb Flunky...

So, yes, Bombay should be good!
