This Wednesday was the state assembly elections in Karnataka. Hopefully, Karnataka would have voted for a party that is not communal and which will work towards keeping Karnataka ಸರ್ವಜನಾಂಗದ ಶಾಂತಿಯ ತೋಟ (shanthiya thota – Garden of Peace) . Without peace, there is no prosperity.
It has been a tough week. I had lots of pending house-related work. I got done most of it; there are, as usual, some more pending tasks.
I usually go by my calendar, especially on working days. Even personal stuff, like my dentist visit, is on my calendar and shared with family. One wrong entry blocked at least half my day this week and created havoc. We underestimate the impact of four hours a lot of times.
Good food, friends, peace, and happiness are the focus of any good festival. This week is the last week of Ramzaan; I went out with friends to eat good food (meat) locally. We walked around my neighborhood and ate quite a bit.
It’s been a busy week. I have not been able to write much this week, but I got some house repair work done. We celebrate the birthday of Dr. B. R. Ambedkar as Equality Day in India. All of Ambedkar’s works are available on archive.org in PDF and EPUB format—so Happy happy equality day reading.
I have registered for Tata 10k this year. This will be my first attempt to run after a big covid break. I am yet to start the practice. I hope to begin this week.
