Updates...

It rained yesterday - not a light drizzle, but good old heavy rain. And I got drenched :-D Was riding to home from office, and when i passed the Domlur fly over, i felt the first kiss of a drop, and soon the drop became a downpour. I was more than happy - after a long day at work, what more can I ask?
Took the long way around, and on the way, stopped at Nilgiris for some shopping. Thankfully, the rain didnt get over and by the time I reached home, I was wet like I took a swim for a good length of time...

Saw a lady fell down from her scooter, and some idiots riding at full throttle - when will people learn that when it rains, you should ride smooth and slow?

Today we are having a Bharat Bundh - called by BJP, to protest against teh happenings linked to the Amarnath land allocation issue. But thankfully, life is as usual @ bangalore. I am sure today will be like a public holiday @ Kerala. Keralites have really taken the art of enjoying harthals. And teh leaders have modularized to concept well - there are area wise hartals for small issues, Town / Panjayath wise, District wise and then the whole state hartal.
Happy holidays to you, people @ Kerala.

I am reading Dune by Frank Herbert now - itz an amazing book. I am totally hooked to it. After finishing dune, I have QB VII by Leon Uris. Time to fill the book shelves again...
The day is moving slowly, and I am looking forward for teh weekend...

Riding in the rains is sure fun :-) It has been raining in Lucknow incessantly since a week now and every time I venture out I am told to carry on rather wear a raincoat ... guess what? I never do it :-D

QB VII is a great book. I have read it long ago thrice. its difficult to keep it down once you start it. Have you read Mila 18 by the same author?

Tell me about it! I used to be jealous of relatives living in Kerala because every other day their school would declare holiday because of some hartal or the other. Hmmmpffh!!

another rain lover at our hands!

i HATE riding in the rains solely because the lady falling from the scooter is ME 99.9% of the time when it rains.
