October Sunset at University


Thick fog in Dharwad on the last morning of 2009

Morning when I woke up at 5:15 I could smell mist in air. I peeped out of the kitchen window, I could see a white haze.

These shots and the video were from our office terrace around 8:30.

That'll be Christmas Thea Gilmore.

I heard this number on BBC Radio 2, it was the very first time and I fell in love with it.

Shankar Nag of my favorite actors. Shankar Nag had style and taste.

I watched Ondanondu Kaladalli once on TV sometime 80s and never got a chance to see it again. I still yearn to watch it again. I watched many of his movies. Songs from the movie Geeta are classy, they are still my favorite. His Malgudi Days are just unforgettable.

Yesterday I got an email from a Kannada group with a link to Shankar Nag's last interview. It's just audio, 23 minutes ... short. Never the less, I felt great listening to a genuine Kannada Kanmani.

Brandy vs. Doctor

One of colleagues caught cold and was coughing badly. I suggested brandy in warm water. Told him to have a quarter and boost his spirits. Thoughts and ideas flow and stop at-

Down a quarter
Kick the doctor

I hope, a doctor reading this post will take it on lighter vien.

Wednesday, December 9, 2009


One of my colleagues sent an email email which started with Hell Sir,

I asked her if she was trying to scare our clients.

Then came a question to my mind- why does hello have hell in it?

After a while a phrase popped up in my mind- Hell O' clock

Then came another thought- Hell O' clock is the time a drunken husband returns home to face his nagging wife.
