What a day !

Today was stupendous in terms of the work I managed to do ! I know that I am capable of a lot of work and also capable of multi-tasking. However, such days that require one to do that, don’t come by very often. Today I’m feeling really satisfied due to all the work I have done…and the promptness with which I have executed all the tasks.

Of course, this means that I am sitting late in office and I haven’t checked mails or goofed off even for a couple of minutes post-lunch. Even before lunch I was nearly glued to my chair :)

This is one of the days that make you feel good about yourself. Busy days when you have done something that you think is useful or meaningful. Days when you arrive at a solution for a difficult or long-standing problem. Days when you have enriched yourself or others.

Today is one such day and I am grateful about it.

My dentist’s a funny chap.

I am currently on a short trip to Belgaum to conduct a theatre workshop for kids aged 8 to 15 years. I had never been to Belgaum before. So this has been a very interesting experience.
Here are some (word, not photograph) snapshots from the trip.
The first thing that struck me as I reached here was the very different way in which everybody spoke Marathi. The accent is distinctly Kannada and the words and sounds are very well rounded. In Pune-Mumbai we speak in quite a sharp manner…crisply cut sounds et al. Also, there is a fun way of combining the last two words (usually the verbs, in Marathi) of a sentence.
I learnt that almost 80% of the population of Belgaum i…
