Harbouring an insomnia plea would be a terrible overstatement. So, that’s out of the picture. It has been a really long weekend considering the fact that Monday was a holiday which is just pure bliss. There is a really lot of information that I’ve processed so, bear with me because this might be longer than the usual dose.
Dose. Yeah, I re-watched ‘Batman Begins’; never ceases to amaze me. Then, my usual bout of sleeplessness saw me hand in hand with a book. ‘The Outcast Queen’; the Mahabaratha is, in my opinion everything that is right and wrong with this wonderful country of mine. Loved the book; nut not divulging into details or reviews. It’s a wonderful feeling to see Karna rise to be a really awesome person. Good reading. That was most of Friday night/Saturday morning.
Come Saturday and I hauled myself to Bessant Nagar beach or Bessy as it is fondly called. Now, if I may quote with some shame, I haven’t been to the beach in the three months that I’ve been in this city. Either way, it was good times. Then there was coffee which put a dent on proceedings. I am a man of simple tastes but one thing that is a deal breaker is the coffee. I might come off as a little arrogant but if you’re a coffee lover, you’ll see the proceeding from my side of the bars. As much as I’ve tried, coffee doesn’t live up to expectations in the ‘Coffee shops’. In my wandering in and around this town, I’ll put down the best coffee haunts I’d frequent.
- Ratna Café, Triplicane
- Indra Café, Velachery
- Any Saravana Bhavan
- Hot Chips
There was a secret meeting in one of the coffee shops with ideas pooled in to take over the world but all that is hush hush and me telling you would result in ‘them’ monitoring you. So, ignorance is bliss, kinda.
The evening was a blur. Reading, music, something else. End of Saturday.
Sunday was memorable in a lot of ways. Time spent with family is always time spent in joy. There was Jigarthanda, popcorn. The former a movie and the later a snack. Followed by food, talk fun and now I’m trailing off, really losing my footing over what I planned to say and what I am actually saying. Note to self, “get a Dictaphone or some other recording device”
Monday- tripod for camera- TMNT movie- photography. Thus, weekend over, although I did meet some interesting people. I really need to thing it through before making words appear out of thin air.
But then, we’re all human. (Not sure how this fits into the context)
Hanggang Susunod na Oras!
