"When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be." - Patanjali

So What Do I Do At Night?

Well call me an uncultured NRI swine, but the TV is great! Immature tabloid journalism; all the sitcoms ever produced; any non-explicit B-grade movie staring A-grade actors; and on top,the icing, the cream and cherry: any one of India's cricket tours in the 70's, 80's or 90's to England or to Aus. If you add to that ESPN's "Great Indian Partnerships", and even a bit of the live stuff to remind you of today's time (ie. lunch, tea or stumps) and date (day 1, 2, 3 etc) then there's really no need to step outside!

So you see, sadly, the reason why there are all these posts on what i've been up to is due to the creation of ambiance at this haveli. No, I haven't spent hours in an internet cafÁé, but have been using my pda, and then tranfering the word files using a memory card and reader. Most places have XP, so it's been easy. The only thing which has sucked is up loading pics, which takes forever!

Anyway at this haveli i've even been practing my Hindi from the dictionaries I picked up, and sometimes try and figure out what I do the next day!

So yeah. That's where i'm up to.
