And yet another 10K!!

10K run. On the same rural route as the one my brother and I took last year. That was his first run of his life. (he now puts 30K runs on Saturdays). Golden rule of running on rural routes in India. Ignore the rule of running with your head up. Instead keep a tight watch on the ground. You will be amazed how many different dirty things you can step into! ’nuff said ๐Ÿ™‚ย โ€” atย Ffort Radisson Raichak.

Run… but no Starbucks :-(

10K run with my brother in Kolkata. What with both of us monitoring our run – me in miles and he in kilometers, most of the run was spent revising the tables of 16 (with all that continuous multiplication and division by 1.6) ๐Ÿ™‚ No Starbucks for me today ๐Ÿ™ย โ€” atย Kolkata.

The girls are different!

After the rather comfortable trip in the biggest commercial airplane, this is what the girls said…
Tasha (14): “I feel guilty traveling like this at my age”
Niki (8): “I think they should have a third TV in each seat. BTW, now onwards only Emirates for me”
Sharmila: “I am NOT traveling coach class to India”
At that point, I went back to responding to my office emails. I realized I need my job ๐Ÿ™‚ My comment? Internet on international flights please!!! I have some emails to upload! ๐Ÿ™‚

Girls’ performance

At Woodruff Arts for Nikita’s Indian dance performance. She made me really proud. I don’t help in this part of her life but I am so happy that Sharmila does the running around so Niki can still keep some connection with Indian culture.ย 
If you are around, I should be easy to spot. Of all the formally dressed people streaming in for the Symphony at 8, I am the one sitting in shorts and beach shirt with red wine ๐Ÿ™‚ย โ€” atย Alliance Theatre.
