I seriously think I am made up of two people (or even more) …

And here is why:

On some days I am terribly clumsy and absolutely not on most others.

Sometimes I am very outgoing and gregarious and in some phases I withdraw into a shell so much that I go to any lengths to avoid meeting people.

I can spend whole days lying in front of the TV watching 5 movies back to back. On some days I will spend the whole day outside and still not want to go back home, no matter how physically tired I am.

I push myself really hard to achieve the goals I set for myself and I simply cannot get up early in the morning and exercise consistently.

I feel extremely shy in too many situations but not a single person will believe this since I try hard to overcome it.

Different people describe me differently.

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…
