No monsoon watch this year

Don't have the heart to - not after Cyclone Aila literally stole the thunder last year. Hoping for the rain, but not banking on it. Only joy in my life is that BH's self-imposed vegan fad ends on Tuesday. He insists on fried eggs (sunny-side up) for brekker, chicken curry for lunch and the BEST mutton biryani available In Mumbai for dinner. Can't wait to live like a normal person again!

Not a decent cloud in the sky - only wispy pretenders

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! Where are the dark grey clouds? Where are the pre-monsoon showers? Where's my sanity? If there's a rain god, he's slacking off. Sack him!

Damn! Blast!

Got my printed copy of my latest novel, The Great Depression of the 40s and am terribly depressed. This was the first time I've edited a book on the comp, and I swear it's the last time. Six blooming typos (spelling, wrong tense, missing word etc) and one horrifying factual error (I squarely take the blame for this one). Mortifying! It's NEVER happened to me before. Going to stick to good old fashioned editing on hard copies in the future. Boo hoo.
