Engaged!

Nay, don't be fooled by the title! I saw an elderly couple deeply engaged in playing a game of dice during the entire length of our trip from Howrah to Chennai (14-15 Nov). They kept a scorecard and diligently updated it with each settling of the overworked but muted dice. You could easily be fooled into believing that they were indulging in a task of profound intellectual interest had it not been for the obviousness of the 5 silly dice.

 

It was nice watching their diligence in playing a game that would normally elicit nothing but disdain from most adults. Life's treasures often lie in the little things we so easily overlook.

 

A memorable lesson learnt.

The mirror was supposed to be a backup.

However, since I now have an automated backup system, the mirror has become redundant.

Wagner

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