If we were strolling together, I’d first drag you to the canteen here and we’d grab something ‘thanda aur sweet'( cold and sweet) to drink. It’s so warm here in Bangalore (south west India) that I can’t go without ‘thanda aur sweet’ for very long… I need to rehydrate every hour or sometimes sooner than that.
I’d tell you how this city was once one of the cooler places in the country, no matter what time of the year! I’d tell you how this place was called the garden city at one point of time. And I would express my disappointment at how polluted and warm and unwelcoming the city has become!
I’d also tell you how my habit of reading blogs has become less regular because of work and also other things on my mind. I’d tell you how there are some life-changing events round the corner and about how this year is going to hold a lot of significance in my life. You’d ask me more about it at this point but I’d tell you that I will elaborate in a while. This is a little too early to talk about those developments!
I’d tell you about how I think my writing has become monotonous. Maybe I need to explore a little more? Maybe I need to start writing newer fresher things? I’d ask your opinion on it… Are you bored of my blog or my posts? Do you think there’s nothing new to this space and that every time you visit you find the same things ploughed and upturned and laid in a different fashion?
I’d tell you about the AwkwardYeti page and how I have come to love their comics, especially the heart and brain ones. I think they are absolutely funny and witty. If you haven’t come across their stuff, I’d ask you to Google them…
I’d also tell you, with a huge smile on my face, how I completed about 20 laps while swimming yesterday. And ours is a small pool so 20 laps makes for a kilometer. But it’s a huge thing for me because few months back I was terrified of water and could not even float! It’s a different story though, that I was so tired post swimming that I slept as soon as my head hit the pillow!
Finally, I’d probably crib about how today is a holiday here and I completely forgot about it and planned this to be the busiest day of my week!!!!
With that… I’d ask you about your day, about your week…How have things been at your end?
