Time to party and time to torture the body!

It is a marriage season in India. ‘Season’ because majority of Hindu population fixes marriage dates according to astrology. As it happens good days are always clustered. Some days there are so many marriages that at 9 PM, traffic in New Delhi is like 9 AM i.e. ‘Bumper to bumper’. It was so on 13th of this month and again on 23rd or so.

About yesterday!

A day in my life.

In retrospect yesterday appears to be an eventful day. Full of happenings, which will have long term impact. However while living yesterday it felt so uneventful. That is what we also call boring. But that is just a label.
