there have been patchy drafts, here's a few of them.

his eye is on the sparrow
on the disappearing sparrows of bangalore*

my new avatar as a gooroo
the hairstyle- bouffant. the name- sigh baba

connect quiz questions that reflect my stream of conciousness
frinstance, connect simone tata and british airways to ira.
s tata- started the cosmetics company lakme
british airways- once applied make up to all the boeings
no, it uses the flower duet from delibe's opera lakme
which is about (and this is where you need to be shrewd) an indian princess called lakshmi (lakme).
and isnt lakshmi the goddess of wealth?
just like ira is the goddess of knowledge.
you knew that and are no doubt peeved because i gave away the answer.

if you were a musical instrument, what instrument would you be?
ans: you would be a harpishchord

they may be the merest sketches, but you know how the posts wouldve turned out, don't you?

a pelican at blandings

and another one at lalbagh.

so if you're in bangalore, go before 8 a.m. to the lalbagh lake. walk around it till you reach the slightly smelly part. there you'll see a large pelly sunning itself. and a bunch of cormorants diving for fish.

enjoy madi.
