A slumber did my spirit seal....

It's been a while... I don't know where to start. School reopened last week and I get reports every alternate day from the sisters (either they call up or I do), I miss that place so damn much. Seems there are many new admissions this year, about 20 of them!!!! Can't wait to go back and see them all... a boy (this new kid from bombay, 12 year old Down's syndrome) already broke a pipe and enjoyed the water shower. Yeah, life was fun there...

Life now is not bad either, there are so many weddings coming up. I want to attend all of them, though I know one won't be possible. It's fun listenin to the wedding talk and all the other stuff that preceeds a wedding. Other people's weddings are so much fun compared to your own.

I've been wanting to meet anju for a very long time, being in the same city and all that. But things haven't been working out (thanks to a couple of very lazy guys, who say 'yes' to everythin then go disrupting all my plans the next day). She's on a pilgrimage tour now (though I know she will check out the cute looking jews more than the historical sites) to Israel... she's visiting the birth place of Jesus and the place where he converted water to wine, the river jordan... etc. I hope she comes back safe and sound in one piece, if she gets kidnapped... I will really miss not being able to read her blog.

Sajeeve is on cloud number raina... sorry nine. Its nice to hear him talking about this new phase in life and talking about sunoj (one's inevitable the other is extremely cute). Shil, haven't spoken to her in a long time now. Nameeta calls me every hour or so... poor thing wants to come here and enjoy the heat, wonder why nobody is allowing her. I get information about my cousins in bombay, from Singapore... how neat is that!

P.S: The title here is a line from Wordsworth's 'Lucy' Poems..... it would be nice to meet these (Shakespeare, Keats, D.H.Lawrence... and the rest) guys some day.

beware of ur mouth kavidey!!

yes kavidey! inforamtion is travelling faster betweeen bombay-singapore-chennai than bombay-chennai . There is some problem in the network path algorithm! there is a hidden link ! We will unravel it soon kavidey! dont get confused!

and i feel like whacking u for wanting to meet shakesphere
Charmaine... that bit about "the information I receive from Singapore about you guys" is all about you megh's... uncode the hidden meaning.
and nam, you should be thankin me... I am doing you a favour by not allowing you to come here, it's like I am bearing all the heat and not letting you be affected by it. some people never figure out things.
And saj, we should do somethin about the network, how come it takes longer to reach the same country? and what's wrong with Shakespeare... I would like it all the cousins got together and had dinner with him or somethin, that would be so funny.... imagine ryan trying to decipher what he says, and you making shakespeare gasp in pain when he hears the profane language you seem to be good at. Megh's would probably drive him crazy with her nonsense jokes. I think among all of us, Shakespeare would like Jude the best, jude speaks like him sometimes.

Miss reading my blog, it seems. You're a mean old cow. :p I'm back safe and sound - unfortunately no one kidnapped me. Then again, I only want to be kidnapped by Jews and they won't do that!

December 2016 and January 2017

The last few months of 2016 were crazy in so many ways. First there was the money issue (when the higher denomination notes lost their value overnight) which created a mess of economic proportions. The insane queues at banks and ATM's and all the scrambling that was happening to make sense of it all, made November quite memorable.  Around the same time, Trump came out victorious which I thought was pretty hilarious... a sort of validation that people are the same everywhere, based on who we elected here.  Anyway, after the chaos of November, December came with her own brand of drama. I heard of Cyclone Nada, but I was busy in Nagercoil then enjoying a birthday party...Even that was fun, surprising the birthday girl who did not know that I was at the airport with dad. She walks up and down and I'm hiding behind the newspaper pretending to read it, then I see Manoj by her side, and they finally come out and she is hugging my dad and after that I walk up behind her and tap her on t…

Padua and Venice 2015

So the last travel post was about Turin, after which we drove all the way to Padua and after roaming around at night, eating ice cream  we came back to Tulip Inn, our hotel in Padua. After the complimentary breakfast, we set out to visit San Antonio's shrine, the shrine where the tomb of St. Antony is located. We celebrated mass in an adjoining chapel there,  We weren't allowed to take pictures in the main shrine, but I surreptitiously managed to take this one. After walking around and praying in this huge church, we then went to the shrine shop. Among all the places we visited, the stuff I've seen at the Padua shrine shop, is really good. One of the best places to shop for souvenirs, everything is so pretty and well made. I had visited Padua in 2013 with Antonio and Nameeta, and Antonio picked up a really cool looking black ring with the Our Father inscribed on it in Latin...
He rarely wears it, so I started wearing it...
Picked up this cream and chapstick at the Padua …
