thoughts on the way

The weather was damn good as I came to work. It is not a day for working but going for a movie or shopping or just playing music at home and reading a book which, I had felt exactly the same way last week and had taken leave. Watched Fantastic four, went shopping and read "Inheritance of Loss".

So I thought atleast I can blog even if I cannot take leave. While I was coming, I suddenly remembered a conversation I had with my warden when I was in the hostel. She said that people from the north east dress as if they are very rich but she is also glad to see that they are very hard working. Then she added, "though I don't know why, I can always see what colour underwear you people are wearing (low-waist pants). Of course, I never see yours. "

On a funny note, I felt like asking,"are you disappointed sister?" :-) But thinking about it, in that hostel there was just one girl who flashed her undies and she was not an Indian either but everybody felt that the north east people do it all the time. I am not saying foreigners come and flash, I mean some flash and some don't or maybe, the north east flash a little more. The majority of the north eastern states are Christian dominated and quite western in their outlook. By this, again I don't mean that Christians flash cos, J is a Christian and she doesn't flash. Now I am going back to work with or without flashing.

Hello Arunima,

Really long since we visited each-other's blog. I got a bit lazy with writing in the meanwhile. However, recently I visited parts of North-East and it struck me all of a sudden that I could ask you to maybe read it if you wish to, whenever you have time. It's a long write-up in five parts and will take time to read.

Also, opinionated as I am, there could be things you wouldn't appreciate much. Yet, if possible, do read and let me know your feedback. If you don't wish to comment on the blog, my email id is akshaya.kumar@gmail.com

Thanks,
-- Akshaya
