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.

 

Back From My India Trip

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.

Fairytale:Limerick Challenge Week 36

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
