Red Ants & Rubber Bands

Rubber bands are seemingly unknown to the city of Bangalore. Whenever I mention the name, shop attendants look quizzically at me - as if I had asked for Tritium Oxide for a nuclear plant in Pakistan!

I'm sick of ants coming uninvited to my room and invading anything and everything edible. Last night I had instant noodles seasoned with countless ants...all because I had no way of sealing the pouch. I guess red ants are tasteless.

This is the workaround I hope to implement tonight: I'll use the recently-retired pressure cooker to contain the noodles.

Ants have invaded my home too. They're black and also tasteless.

I'm in India until July 20th...going traveling July 4th onwards. Actually, I fly back from Bangalore on July 17th, and expect to be there on the 15th or 16th. Let's meet up!

Zoya, I would LOVE to meet you!
Let's c. I was originally scheduled to be in Kolkata in mid-July. That plan has fallen apart for now.

Sameer, you'll now be THINKing out of a PAD? Just how minute is your brain?


I generally dislike Wagner. However, I heard a piece by him today and it was sublime and breathtakingly beautiful.
