New year's Day...

It is the beginning of another Tamizh Year..Paarthiba Varusham...against all experience and cynicism, hope springs anew that THIS year, things will improve, politicians everywhere will come to their senses, good governance will begin....

India can call herself the greatest democracy in the world when the average Mr Ram in his little one-room tenement need not stand in queues for many things (admittedly, less than before), doesn't have to pay babus to get his work done, and can have access to good water, if not clean air and some amount of greenery.

Until then...we live in hope. Putthaandu Vaazhtthukkal to everyone...especially to Murthys_r_s and Madhumk who also celebrate their new Year...and to SIG, who is struggling with a mammoth task at work.

I have been meeting a few very interesting people the quiz and theatre fields. More about this later.Life is full, and happy, and interesting.My beloved spouse is bent over his PDA which crashed, trying to get some life into it; CNBC is yowling in the background...I am at home, at peace and perfectly content.
