Summer Devil

The first two pictures were taken at Nandhini De-Luxe at the junction of 100 ft. Road and Airport Road. Given the paranoia in the air over eating chicken, it's worth a poetic shot at increasing consumption.

What a wonderful word, "Drunch"! You can almost feel icy-cold waves washing over you. Quench + Drench? It say below, "Hammer The Summer!" There is a word used to describe words that conjure up vivid mental imagery, can anyone help me?

Saw this at Commercial Street. Who thought the devil would drive a Ford Endeavour?

I always figured that Beelzebub would prefer a Maserati Quattroporte, no? Their logo is just so perfect for this.

Jobless Photos

Mocha in Chennai. Try their Lindt Shake, two whole bars of it in milk, with cream and sugar. At Rs. 225 a glass, it's an indulgence you need to try. Even if only once. Nice place too. And they have wicked sheeshas.

Egads! Please do notice the artistry in the shot, with the sun glinting off the 'O'!

Temptation. As seen at Amethyst in Chennai. I didn't succumb.

One step (A BMTC Volvo bus with an LED sign board) to the future...

And two steps (Fires across Bangalore and the requsite "Picture-On-The-Car") firmly in the past.

Some farewell for a hero.

Jobless on Museum Road

Especially funny when a bunch of guys have sent a few at Temptation and walk by this sign....

This is why SJBHS rules, in more ways than one. This would be in addition to our other gift to the Indian cricket team.

An old ditty comes back to me now, “Cotton’s are brats, Baldwin’s are rats, here come the Josephite’s, so lift you f***ing hats!”

All the best Robin.

In all fairness, Barrington Rowland (from FAPS) will probably be the next contender.


The Josephite's totally kicked some English ass.

"The St. Joseph's Boys' High School in Bangalore has the motto, fide et labore
(faith and toil) and two of its alumni made England toil as India closed off the
one-day series with another nerveless victory."

It's A Cruel April

"It has come to our attention that not everything published in The Economist is true, or even sensible. As proof of this surprising fact..."

The Cruellest Month

Of course, it didn't stop the ToI from publishing this article from the Economist, in full, on the 2nd of April. Heh!
