These are a few of my Favourite Smell's.....

Chandrika Soap: Oh man! I love this soap... it smells like Eden, I mean if the Garden of Eden had a smell, this is how it would smell. It has this fresh earthy kinda smell, probably like how our world would have smelt before we started ransacking it.

Revive Liquid Starch: This is another smell I am crazy about. My clothes smell awesome after using this thing, it's like warm sunshine. Whenever I wear these starched clothes I practically fall in love with myself. It's like basking in the glow of a beautiful sunshine day.

Nivea Powder: Oh, this has a wonderful fragrance, I use it all the time for no reason. I carry it in my bag and keep rubbing some on whenever I feel like it. It has an uplifting kinda smell, kinda like angels when they move between clouds. I have images for each smell in my head. Now you know why I get sucked into books... if a mere smell can give me such images, then imagine pages and pages of prose, it literally takes me away, makes me live the character's life.

Calgon's Moonpetal Musk: Anju had given me this once as something to remember her by after college and for other reasons. It's one of the best smells created by man, it pulls you in... keeps you entranced. Smells like a mystical place so far removed from earth, it's like moving into an unfamiliar but astoundingly spellbinding place that can fill up your senses.

Channel's Body Mist: Vinod got this for me and nam when he had come down last year for Tina's wedding. Initially I didn't like it much, t'was a bit too strong nothin like the earthy or the mystical smell. It was just too strong like being stuck somewhere and feeling claustrophobic. Then after a while I learnt to use it properly by holding it far from the body and then spraying it, so that you get covered by a mist. Duh, took me long enough to figure that out. Anyway, I really like that smell now. I spray a generous quantity of it on my handkerchief before I leave for work, so when I travel around the city using the local transport that crosses over many quaint bridges with unmentionable stuff flowing beneath it, I know I will survive.

There are many more smells.. will write about them later...

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…
