Computers can be quite an addiction

And I am sure. Who said cocaine was addictive? And who said smokers find it difficult to quit?

Given a choice between Rekha and my computer, I think would choose the latter. Wonder if she knows it. Just in case you did not know, Rekha is my wife.

My computer has kind of given up on me. It refuses to boot. But I am also adamant; I am not going to give it the boot yet.

This post is from a computer center, where they are playing Tamil songs…the kind that you can hear in tea-shops. Perhaps, that is the reason I was not surprised when the café owner came up to my desk and asked if I preferred coffee or tea. He must have owned a tea-shop earlier. Shows the extent to which computers have penetrated India.

The next ‘good` post will be up when my computer is ready…and that in all probability would be on Monday.

Just the excuse Rekha was looking for to play havoc with my life. Knowing that I am restless, she has asked me to take her to Mayajaal (an entertainment center, where a friend of mine once went with his family and since sold all his family jewels and mortgaged his house). It seems she wants to watch – Mumbai Express.

If only I did not know it was a Kamal movie, a surprised me would have taken her to the railway station…we could have also watched Tamil Nadu Express, Jammu-Tawi Express, Howrah Express …not to mention other trains like Mangalore Mail, and Vizah Mail….

Don`t get upset yet…these are just withdrawal symptoms and I shall get over as soon as I get my computer back.
