A Rainy Day at Gurgaon
For the second day the rains have continued at Gurgaon and at one level thank heavens for that! But at another level commuting becomes one complicated affair. Sesha decided to come with me today as he was not too keen to drive in the pouring rain. I dropped him to his office (which is a small detour for me) and then went to the mall where I park my car. From there I travel half of the way with a colleague.
While waiting, I saw these two men on the road with the ‘raincoats’ that become such a common site on a rainy day.
The Lift near the Roof, a Mall in Gurgaon
A while later I decided to park my car in the basement of a mall and wait inside it. By now the mall folks recognize me as I use their parking on every working day. And then I saw the lift going up. I liked what I saw and clicked it. This lift has a robotic announcing ‘ground floor,’ ‘basement 1’ etc at every stop.
Barista, Just Opening in the Morning
I was a little late today and my colleague was still some distance away because of various traffic jams. I was wondering what to do? I was quite glad to see that in spite of the chairs resting on the table, there was a person at the counter of the Barista Coffee Shop. I am usually not a big fan of these overpriced coffee shops but decided to have one today. He put the chairs down and cleaned the table and took my order.
And as I am not good at waiting idly I decided to open my laptop and do something. I quickly uploaded these pictures from my camera and added my signature, etc.
I hardly grab a cup of coffee in the morning that too in a shop at a mall! In that sense it was a most unusual day. And then I opened the word document named Orchha that was blank. I have done this so many times but I have realized for the first time that each article actually started from a blank page !
