Do you remember what 2000 was like? I do not. Scary, this grainy sense of days coalescing into each other like photographs you can't quite see the images on, nameless blobs of b&w with nothing to show for it.

Have no idea about that year ... remember personal scenes, views, feelings over the course of time, but unconnected to dates or years ... the stream of time is grey - the photostream you speak of. My personal chronography is different and not measured in years, life sets other starts and stops.

Sometimes a "stop" can take damn long.

Hi Aust,
Y2K was the year I finished my Tenth Standard :) Memories of a time, when I joined Pre university college... how was it there?

Hi,Austy-Y2k was the year which began with everyone being on tenterhooks,courtesy the doomsday predicted for computers,remember?

Besides that,not much-was quite ensconsed in my previous co in Baroda,little knowing that 2 yrs later,I'd be in Dxb.
