Of mangoes and quicksand

The day after the Cauvery verdict was issued is probably the happiest day of my (travel) life. It took just five minutes (that's right, a jaw-dropping five minutes) to cross Tin factory. Empty roads and zero traffic. How.utterly.cool is that! What I wouldn't give to have such traffic-free commute to work every day! It was Misbah's … Continue reading Of mangoes and quicksand

Every story I read spoke about how it had always … Continue reading “Stay hungry, die foolish!”
