Graphic Novels

Thanks to Krishnan
I got to read "V for Vendetta" and "League of Extraordinary gentlemen" both are super cool, LXG is a shade better though.

Reading "Batman Year One" now :D

Seven Daffodils

I may not have a mansion
I have'nt any land
Not even a paper dollar
To crinkle in my hand
But I can show you morning
On a thousand hills
And kiss you and give you seven daffodils

Do you agree?

" The mind is its own place, and in itself
Can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven"

Bangalore->Poona->Bombay and Back

On my way to Bombay (I refuse to call it Mumbai!), I visited Poona for a couple of days. Having heard "Pune is just like Bangalore" etc etc, I was looking forward to a relaxing couple of days ahead of the hectic life that Bombay presents. what I found was an extremely Hot and humid city with traffic so bad that it surprised even a Banglorean like myself :)

In all poona sure looks like bangalore in one sense which is that it is ready to burst at the seams as far as infrastructure is concerned.

Bombay was the usual, a city like none other in India, Bombay always reminds me of a machine that is constantly running. run run run thats how people seem to live in Bombay, unlike the lazy, laid back life that Bangalore presents.

Bombay has wonderful wide roads made at the cost of trees and greenery, I remember this one time that a friend of mine took me to see the famous "Hanging Gardens" I went with visions of a great wondorous gardens much like the one in Babylon. What I saw was a tiny little place, with dry bushes, a scattering of benches and exhausted looking trees. We have better gardens at traffic junctions back in Bangalore !

But I must say that Bombay has a charm of its own, that no other city seems to possess.

In all a wonderfully refreshing holiday for me :)
