The usual walk in the park, looking at the sky, the eucalyptus leaves outlined against a peach dawn, dew on the grass, the corner I call the bamboo grove…all routine till I overhear a conversation… “…santoor and the rendition was excellent..” Shock the parent by turning around and asking a complete stranger, “So which raga did he present?” keywords for the next few minutes- bilaskhani todi, bilawal, asavari ...Ah, life!. Then the discordant notes of the day don't hurt as much. Surprising, the things one does sometimes.

Every once in a while it feels great to do something out of the ordinary, shocking even one's self. But I probably would look ( and feel) a ninny if I so much as smiled at a stranger! :)

Yes, awake at this hour too. Kabhi kabhi...

burf- its economics more often than not, burf. demand and supply always wins.

amitl- sometimes a security blanket too. :)

manuji- meddle? that must be THE understatement of the year.
