Sundays in my City #1


Just another rainy Sunday afternoon - the view from my house in Lucknow (U.P.) India.  I suppose it could be depressing, if you let it get you down!

  1. Hmmm... I used to - a long time ago - have a pen pal who lived in Lucknow. How cool!

  2. Hi there!
    How do you get your clothes dry when it's so wet?
    Do you get mold inside?

    In Casa it's humid but not that wet! :)
    Thanks for your visit - I'll be back here!

  4. Great photograph Gaelikaa. The Lucknowis are famous for goofing off at the slightest excuse aren't they? Like heat, or cold or rain?

  5. Oh, I love the designs in this gate...I'll bet it would make a great close-up, too!

  9. Thanks for stopping by!

    I love the rain - I've lived in the desert all my life, so water - in just about any form! - is so refreshing and soothing to me!

  10. It washes the streets down and freshens the place up.
    Having to stay in is dull, but at least you don't have to go out in it.

  11. The rain is beautiful, I love it, but probably because we don't get enough here in So. Cal. But like you said, don't let it get you down!

  12. Are you having a lot of rain or is this just a rainy afternoon? Aren't some areas of India flooding? Me, I love rainy afternoons, of course, it's been a while since Alabama has seen rain. What kind of temperatures do y'all have? We're having 100 with a heat index of 112 and a humidity level of 80%, talk about steamy and hot! Very good picture! I've often wondered what your house and family look like.

Global Peace - Is It Possible? LBC Post

I can't believe it's Friday already and time for another LBC post.  The Loose Blogger's Consortium (LBC) is a blogging group consisting of about half a dozen of us who blog together every Friday on the same topic.  We are indebted to Ramana (aka blogger Rummuser) for this week's topic.  Instead of just giving a straightforward topic like anyone else would, he posed a question instead.  Is global peace possible? he asked.  I decided to answer his question in a Tweet sized sentence.



Is global peace possible?  Of course it is. If everyone gets in harmony with each other.   But will it happen?  How on earth would I know?


As we say in Ireland (well, as they used to say when I lived there two decades ago), that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Thanks to All-Free-Download for the photo.  Thanks to Lettercount for their character counting facilities.  And thanks to my LBC group for being there every Friday in blogging solidarity.

Good Intentions

I had great intentions for this week.  I'd write a thousand words every day, review six books, get my Loose Bloggers Consortium (LBC) post up well in advance.  And did I?  No, no, no.  I wrote about two hundred words per day and have been trying to read and review two books and still not finished reading.  My target of 19,000 words until today by now is around 15,000 on my 100kWords in 100 Days Challenge.  It seems I'm just not cutting the mustard.

I have the intentions.  I just don't seem to have the mojo to carry out the things I want to do. So many intentions, not enough time.  I've not been sleeping well lately.  Probably very tired.

So - my intention now is to try to get more sleep.  Then carry out the original intentions.That' what I intend to do.  As of now.  Meanwhile, my post is up one day late.

I had to go out to the bank this morning to get some pending work finished.  I clicked the above picture en route.  It seems that after a three week winter, we're…

April Fool (LBC Post)

One morning, when I went to school in 1977, or was it 1978, when I was a first or second year student in the Irish secondary school system (which is 7th or 8th Class in India) I noticed something very odd indeed. It was a notice pinned to the notice board. It read as follows:

THE INTER HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO LACK OF INTEREST

'The Inter' or the Intermediate Certificate Examination as it was known then, now the Junior Certificate Examination, was a pretty crucial examination. It's called the 'Class Ten Board Examination' in India and the High School Certificate elsewhere.

I knew something was wrong, but couldn't quite figure it out. The notice sparked a minor frenzy. When the date was revealed to be April the 1st, everything made sense.

It's strange how the 1st April can take some people by surprise.

I haven't noticed anything unusual this year. Except that today, I have a rather horrible toothache. But I'll have to go get it sorted.

April Fool jokes are…
