Wiring a lot of services to Blogger. Thanks to IFTTT for the big help. The only thing that I dislike in the current setting is the weird multiple lines and a comments image/hyperlink being appended to my blog posts on Blogger when sent across WordPress. I could use some CSS to hide some of the flab, but it’s still an ugly approach.
The weather sucks.
The local park isn’t far from home and is often a welcome respite from the sedentary life we live. The park has a children’s corner that’s well availed by the kids in the vicinity.
Ari is too young for most of the facilities, but a specially crafted swing has gained a near-complete hold over him. Pulling the two apart is a heart-wrenching exercise. After today’s mesmerising swings, Ari was in no mood to go home and the tantrums he threw attained epic proportions. Luckily, Asha was well equipped to handle the situation. We let the kid lie on the ground and cry his heart aloud while we calmly waited for his rage to ebb. It worked like magic.

This one will go down as a classic, I am sure!
I gave the Telco Colony group a real scare this morning by writing the following post:
A policy change.
This group has swelled enormously since its inception. We also take great pride in the kind of discipline we have been able to inculcate in spite of the growing numbers. But it also breaks my heart to turn away the many people who apply for membership. I fret at night thinking of the sin we commit each time we say NO to a membership request. The memory haunts me. To make matters worse, we also constantly keep deleting posts deemed inappropriate. But what right do we have to judge others? Who are we to decide what stays and what goes?
It’s time to deal with the guilt of misplaced authority.
So starting tomorrow, we will see some drastic changes:
All membership requests will be accepted. We say No to no one, even to those who have nothing to do with Jamshedpur.
We allow all kinds of posts. You’ll have absolute freedom to post anything, from the most pious to the most perverse.
Administrators will have their duties greatly reduced. In fact, they’ll be free of all duties of administration.
I feel better already! What are your thoughts?
I can’t believe so many people fell for it!

I generally dislike Wagner. However, I heard a piece by him today and it was sublime and breathtakingly beautiful.
I just can't take it anymore. I should have moved on long back but lingered in the hopes of a miracle. It was not to be and I've fin...
