Book Review (atleast that's what I thought it was gonna be about)

Read a few good books this past month....
Keys of the Kingdom by A.J.Cronin: I heard about this book from Mother(Sr. Magdalene,Mother Superior in the convent/school I used to work in earlier). She is a retired english professor, and we used to spend a great deal of the day talking about books, authors, daily events happening in this world and the children. It was obvious our love for reading, we would exchange books and talk about the story and the plight of the protagonist the next day. I kinda miss that... those were days when I didn't mind working extra hours or even during Sundays, cause work there was never really like work... it was just one big happy family. I used to wake up thinking, wonder what's gonna happen today... what dare devil stunts will Carlton do today (he is autistic and these children are usually fearless, they have no sense of danger), what funny thing will Raja say today (this guy is hyperactive and cannot keep quiet for half a second, a staff member one day said, "As long as we have Raja, we will not need a speech therapist"), what trouble will Jasper brew this time (this boy has Down's Syndrome and, he is always looking for new ways to get into trouble. Recently a government official had come to visit the school, he parked his car inside the campus and went to the office room to talk to the sister. Jasper got into the car, turned the key in the ignition and the car roared to life... and let's just say Jasper was mighty pleased with himself, even though he had to get a earful from the staff), what political speech/rally slogans will Rishi deliver today(he is this guy who has this uncanny ability to remember every speech/song he has heard on TV or the radio or from political rally's, and the very next day he delivers it the exact same way.... and this usually takes hours)...
oh man... this was supposed to be about that book by Cronin, oh well, I will make that the next post.

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…
