sunday night update
Bought a Sify 50 hour pack today. Am wondering if I should get a CDMA phone and get the Reliance connection to improve my connectivity. Don’t feel like spending 5k for that though. Tried to get a second hand one/transfer of ownership done. Been unsuccessful so far. Let’s see. If I begin to miss the rest of the world a bit more, maybe i will end up buying one.
The Name of The Rose is turning out to be a great read. A bit too much of Latin that I can’t make head or tail of. But there are so many amazing observations and ideas expressed that I am thoroughly enjoying it nevertheless.
Visited the local Jagannath temple today morning. Saw this neat automatic drum there. While the priest beats furiously at his gong, this electrically operated drum is set to produce rhythmic beats in the background at an equallly furious pace. Together their sound makes it easy for me to concentrate on the Om. The crowd was thin, altogether made for a peaceful environment. There are very few big/popular temples that I like. The Birla temple at Hyd, Ragiguda in Bangalore, and the Mylapore temple at Chennai are the only ones that come to mind in fact. Here’s one more added to that short list.
Had dosa and vada for breakfast at a local restaurant, a huge relief after 4 days of rotis for every meal.
