This week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge prompt from Frank is “Challenge”.
Photo by author : October, 2018, Guwahati, Assam, India
The photo above was taken during Durga Puja in Guwahati. The lone policeman ( seen at left center) had his hands full trying to control traffic in a square where five roads meet. While he had a challenge at his hands, our challenge was to cross the square without getting hit. Everyone wanted right of way at the same time.
I came back from a month long trip to India on New Year’s eve afternoon. I had a fourteen hour layover in Seoul, South Korea. Not sure if I picked up some bug at Seoul or during the flight back to San Francisco, by night time of December 31st, I was sick to my bones. As my family was still back in India, I tried to take care of the sickness as best as I could. However things went from bad to worse and by the time my family came back from India I was a mess. To make a long story short, 2018 started for me with sneezing, sniffling, runny nose, body ache, fever and topped off with a lingering cough that did not show any sign of going away. Ultimately after ten days I went to the doctor today to ensure that I did not have secondary infection. It was raining here from yesterday and visibility was poor. It took me forty five minutes to get a parking place in the hospital and I was half an hour late for the appointment. Luckily all the appointments were running late and I was able to see my doctor who assured me that there was no secondary infection and rest is the only thing I need to get well.
So here I am hoping that I can start where I left off at the end of November, 2017 and 2018 will be rewarding experience of blogging.
Wishing a belated happy, prosperous and wonderful New Year 2018 to all my readers.
There was this girl from India
Dreamt of being fairytale queen of Frisia
Dreamt all day and dreamt all night
What a sorry state was her sight
When she woke up naked in Finlandia
