DAY 2487

Jalsa, Mumbai            Feb 4/5,  2015           Wed/Thu  1 : 16 am








I now have a widget on my mobile which informs me regularly the operations on Twitter. I am obliged to the agent from the company that gave me this facility and I am thankful that despite its immediate use and response I have been unable to keep abreast with the twitterati …

The impulses that one receives on the immediacy of the provision provided by the widget, is quite remarkable. There is a large window of twitter that now occupies the somewhat larger screen of the Samsung Note Edge, and there is the distraction because of its presence, from all else that the mobile may have, in its fairly fresh and new appearance. Which I might add is not such a bad idea, provided it does not disrupt the workings of the other functions that the mobile provides in this model …

Having done my bit for the propaganda of the Samsung, free of cost, may I now turn yours and mine attention towards matters more Blogesphere !!

I do have a bank of pictures that need to come up, but there seems to be a problem there as well. The disk has been loaded, but it does not revolve enough to ‘open’ as it were the shots taken .. which is quite a bother … but I do hope soon there shall be repair and then maybe we could update the Blog and present it in its entirety ..


So here we are ..

A proof, if there is need for one, to tell all, the sincerity of my resolve to be connected with the Ef … even as I sit on the plane on my way back home, realising that it may become late, I have started to write the page before we land so that when we reach home, the extra hours required for its construct is negated …

Nothing like some self praise in this world .. hehehehehehe .. !!!


The endless interviews and interactions with the press continue over mugs and mugs of hot chocolate and cookies, and no lunch. And when it is time for it, the lunch I mean, it is time ironically to travel to the 'times’ to open and inaugurate a book on 'food’ .. yes … food .. kind of rubbing the salt in but there …

The birthday has been brought in and Abhishek is another year older, 39 years ..strange but he was born just the other day .. and the euphoria and the champagne opening at the Breach Candy Hospital, the traditional cigar smoked, general joy and celebration .. a little subdued perhaps … not quite as much as that for Shweta … that was quite a moment … and here we are sharing those moments on this wonderful medium, which incidentally the media questions a great deal about .. !!

O dear .. I really have no time to discuss that topic … it is interesting though .. and perhaps we shall talk about it another day ..

For tonight it is .. Gute Nacht, schlafen gut und angenehme Träum  …
