#309

Housekeeping:-
1) Mummy Returns:- Mom was admitted to ICU with Congestive heart failure. After Critical cardiac care (CCU) and hospitalisation for 8 days, she back home last week (I was away on business travel when she back home). Lalitha was alert to the symptoms and rushed her to hospital. The help and guidance from her schoolmate who is also a Doctor and resides in our block was just amazing and made all the difference. 

2) My 9 months assignment at Hyderabad is coming to an end this week. I look to spend some quality time at home. With the heat that is around, good to have the break, I guess!!
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Trump on fire!! Tillerson, McMaster all gone!! boy!! He is all action I guess but not surprising! If you nod your head you stay!! He still in "CEO" Mode! I hope he doesn't dare to fire "Muller" hahahh!! I expected John Bolton to be Secretary of state back in Nov 2016! Looks it happened 16 months later!! 

Just watch this video!! U will be stunned!! ahhaahh!! Prisoner in Norway!!! 


30 Years ago, Bharat EK Khoj got released! Jawahar Lal Nehru's Disovery of India that is kind of ready reckoner of Indian History! Can't beleive 30 years has flown in a flash I recollect watching practically episode in the guest house at Bharuch!!! I have decided to watch all episodes afresh. I have asked my kids to do it to get perspective of India. Thank God, If Modi bastards and BJP goons do Indian history now, they would have included and 200 years down the line people would read, "We Indians, ate our own Excreta as Shiva and Ram said so!! hahahhahh!!!! (தேவிடியா பசங்க)!!! Boy How much I loathe this BJP bastards!!! (For them MBA= Maida, Besan, Attaa hahahahh) 

Bharat Ek Khoj—The Discovery of India A Production of Doordarshan, the Government of India’s Public Service Broadcaster,To enhance your video entertainment experience, subtitles are provided in English. Bharat Ek Khoj is a 53 episode television series that dramatically unfolds the 5000 year history of India from its beginnings to the coming of Indian Independence in I947. It is a series of explorations into the different periods of Indian history - political, social and cultural. It traces the crucial and significant landmarks in the evolution of the great Indian Civilization; a unique combination of multi-cultural, mu|ti—religious and multi- ethnic communities constituting a pluralistic society unparalleled in the entire world. The episodes sometimes use the technique of a documentary, at other times drama, in their narratives. Bharat Ek Khoj is based on Jawaharlal Nehrus celebrated book, The Discovery of India. The episodes are anchored by the actor Roshan Seth who plays the role of Jawaharlal Nehru. It was produced and directed by Shyam Benegal and telecast every Sunday on Doordarshan in 53 episodes that ran for a whole year. It is an excellent synthesis of Indian history, culture, myths, mythology, epics, drama, music and film technology. Even after twenty years, we can proudly say that a whole generation was moved by this informative serial which has not only enhanced the historical perspective, but also inspired viewers to have a deeper understanding of our glorious past. Nehru came to India via the West, and looked at her, as a friendly Westerner might have done. But did he know India?- During the election campaign of I936-37, he travelled most extensively throughout India: in towns, cities and villages alike. He was on a great voyage of discovery and the land of India and its people lay spread out before him. India with all her infinite charm and variety began to grow upon him more and more. She was like some ancient palimpsest on which layer upon layer of thought and reverie had been inscribed, and yet no succeeding layer had completely hidden or erased what had been written previously. At the Ahmednagar Fort prison, Nehru sat down in five solitary jail-months of 1944 to record his own voyage of the discovery of India. Doordarshan Archives takes pride in offering this serial to its esteemed viewers in its endeavour to fulfill its commitment towards public service.

Enough has been written about Capetown shame! I am sure Cricket Australia would take stern action unlike Asian Goons. ( If Smith had been an Indian or Pakistani, no actions for sure and on contrary stupid Indians,Pakistanis, Srilankans would protect him because he is SC/ST, Punjabi vs Madarasi, Cheenu Mamaa vs Pawar or Pashtun vs Sunni hahahha) Boy!!! As Cricket is one trick pony to play unlike Australia/NZ /UK which sporting nation with multiple facets. It is stupid of Aussies to have thought that they would get away in this modern age of technology and camera! Meet the cameraman who exposed them Mr Zotani Oscar, the cameraman in suit!!


Over next days/weeks, I plan to complete Ken Follet books. I am halfway in to Code to Zero A class book. Follet master story teller too!!

Ok Take it easy, take care, GOD BLESS Karthik

Lemon Tree, Moscow Club, Sir Everton Weekes, Karen Carpenter !!

#307
1) Radhu and I are back from Hyderabad last night. It was great catching up with some of my workfolks over dinner. 3 hrs just flew!! 3 hrs later, the Telangana Govt put ban order of sale of liquor for 3 days on account of Holi!! hahhahahahh!!
Dinner at Lemon Tree Hyderabad. 
2) March airlines travel is all booked with Air Asia, I have decided to let go Indigo. Their inconsistent policy in implementing everything just irks me! I want predictability and consistency! Let's see! But in India u never know, anything other than Indian wife is a fucking shit!! ahhahahahhahah!!!
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
It was heartening to see "Lemon Tree" group of hotels which I have been patronising for over a decade, hires hearing impaired personnel as bearers across all its hotels in India!! I have never noticed this all my stay, ( or my inattention as usual) I was told of this during this trip. This is a great gesture by the management and should be commended. 

I stayed awake all night (5 days break, so ok) to finish Moscow Club by Joseph Finder! Any cold war plot is just amazing and page turner. This is no exception. I also finished reading Company Man and Killer Instinct! Finder magic story telling is evident. The plot in both books covers the dirty /dark underside of Corporate dog eating dog competition......

Sir Everton Weekes, who turned 93 this week (26/2) is now the 4th oldest living cricketer! The 3"W"s as Walcott, Worrel and Weekes domination of cricket in 50s was legendary. Wishing him to hit a century in life. God bless.


Today 2/3 is 68th Birth Anniversary of Karen Carpenter! It has been 35+ years since Karen departed this world. The music she dished out were mesmerising even today for her adored fans like me who grew up listening to her music through radio and infrequent. I wonder how crazy we would have been with all the digital /on demand access!! All her numbers are just joy to listen. I leave with my top 3, not in that order. Karen was also a master drummer!!! 
1) Jambalya

2) Please Mr Postman ( I can relate this to my courship days 1990 hahhah)

3) I will say Goodbye love! Listen to the Guitar in the end, just stunning!! 

Take care, god bless
