The Loooooooong-Weekend-Law

Just like Murphy’s law, there is a Loooooooong-Weekend-Law. I have discovered it.

The Loooooooong-Weekend-Law states:

The Corollary to the Loooooooong-Weekend-Law states:
“You cannot cheat the law by filling up some part of the loooooooong weekend with a planned period of ‘doing nothing’ since something that needs to be done 'immediately' will pop up impromptu exactly during the ‘doing nothing’ period”

Happy Loooooooong-Weekend everybody :)

My dentist’s a funny chap.

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.

I learnt that almost 80% of the population of Belgaum i…
