Yesterday I celebrated my "independence" by wandering in the Mahatma Gandhi Road for a while, inhaling all the highly polluted air, had Idli Vada and Masala Dosa, went to Kalasipalayam and booked bus ticket to Kerala for tomorrow. Visited Higginbothoms and Gangarams, bought a collection of 50 Poirot stories. I became curious to see the book Jesus Lived in India by Holger Kersten, so bought that as well.
My house owner's son is getting married this weekend, but I wont be able to attend it since I am going to Kerala tomorrow for a 5 day vacation. I bought a present for them. Meanwhile, my house owner has kept lot of their stuff like old chairs, sofa etc. in my rooms, until the marriage function gets over. They think they have done a favor to me by doing that, and told that "even after the marriage is over, you can keep them if you want". But I felt uncomfortable because of the dust and smell from these things.
Television channels are not coming very clearly. Need to complain to the cable office. I heard a beautiful song from the new Malayalam movie Kannaki.
