TeeVee!

Have been lying around every evening watching TV, “connecting with my audience” as part of my after-work training-cum-entertainment programme. Must say the activity is much more fun that I remembered it to be. There is a lot to be said about the molten feeling of peeping through sleepy eyelids at the inane TV programme and then having just that bit of wakingness left in you that is needed to switch off the TV (first, unsuccessfully with the cellphone and then successfully with the remote control) and sink into deep sleep.

P.S. The astonishing number of hair oil and banian ads on TV seems surreal. There’s this whole parallel universe where people keep soiling their banians with the excessive oil dripping from their heads.

Unrelated: Am planning office uniform for myself: Oversized kurta (increasingly difficult to procure), contrast churidar, mismatched dupatta, Bata flat sandals, laptop bag (side/back) cellphone and badge maala, flowers in hair and silver earrings. Not bad, eh?

awwww so you're back!

I like kurta with contrast churidar- go for it!!! Anyways I could never wear matching ... Even if I bought it as a set, I would change it when i wore... But now its been ages I've been in Indian cloths ... I miss them ... I love oddissi duppattas - had a big collection, rotting now!

Good to see you writing ...

In hair, apart from flaahrs, also that hair oil that His Highness SRK models for? Why else would you watch late-night ads?

Your imagination never ceases to amaze!

I do not know what you studied in London, but you sure can make a good career out of humour.
