Maybe I was kidding. Half joking.
Maybe not. Best if you don’t know.
But you almost choked on that morsel, Baba.
Startling reaction. Wow.


An almost saucer-shaped moon floated lazily in a milky halo past a starless-sky.
A rare sight for the city-sky. Rare, given the looming monsoon. Touched.

paavani- nope, did you? yahan cloudy and low visibility. which means I forgot.

portia- it is in the viewer, yes? patchwork-like, that serenity. :)

soleil- svatantrata thi udau swadheenta taraf ni kooch nu elan karyu. amey to ada thavana chiye. :))O canada? amari pasey Oh Moombai che. moklavu? ey shoon?

proxima- yup, and in the summers that searing wind from the desert that hits your head. sun stroke. whatnot. still, the giver of life,fair, dispassionate,stern, distanced, unmoving- as per Indian mythology.

Saw the moon and venus with the wife while we were on our usual evening chat on the terrace. Lovely feeling that... overlooking a Eucalytus grove, the airport, and a railway line that saunters through a cragged line of houses built to fit in every available space. Nice feeling, of liberation and serenity.

Chalo, my post is out here. :-)
