I get my first pet – after 35 years

There were times when my wife Rekha called me a Dog. You got to give it to her for being appropriate – she never addressed me as a dog in front of strangers & relatives. It was reserved for occasions when we were alone – especially, when we were in the bedroom.

“You are a dog. Can’t you understand a simple ‘No’?”

This post is about how I managed to get a pet inside our house though my wife still hates animals, birds & fish. When they are alive.

The British Empire

My father often told me: “The son never sits in the British Empire.” As a result I forced myself to be active – getting up at 5 am and going to bed at 10 pm – and achieving a lot of things as I grew into a full-blown-up man. My father is no more, but I still don’t sit.

My world came down crashing when yesterday I realized that my father had been saying the line wrong. It is actually: “The sun never sets in the British Empire.”
