Something awfully sad happened a few days ago – an AI flight from Dubai to Mangalore crashed in Mangalore, wasting the lives of 158 people, of which four were children. They are still in the process of identifying some of the bodies. It is terrible to even imagine something like this – but life always dishes up facts stranger than fiction. With events like these, who has time for petty stuff? It is obvious that there is one life – and we should live it in a positive way.
Something lovely happened too, on Sunday. Tanu phoned – and it was absolutely great talking to her. Some things never change – and we couldn’t stop laughing over the fact that we’ve known each other since 1974 !! I ought to scan some more photos – she doesn’t have copies of our pictures together since I was always the shutterbug. Now this is good motivation to preserve the photos.
There’s more good news – I am going to be working on a fabulous new project and am very much looking forward to it. I know you’re out there, watching over me. Now, I just need to work some effective time management. In the meantime, we’re also doing our bit for the environment through a “wealth out of waste” program. We’ve roped in the BBMP to come once a week and pick up the segregated waste plastic and paper we don’t need. Its the YIMBY principle. So far, so good – successful for three weeks now.
Ok – going for that second Kaapi and to get ahead in the day. There are miles to go before I sleep!
