Well, my computer at home is slowly limping back to normal but the problem is we were so dependent on the laptop that we never really bothered much about its power backup. Now, with the laptop in the ‘maybe not repairable’ category we realize how bad the power scene in Gurgaon is. Every day they shut off the power from 8.00 to 9.00 pm. I come home around 7.00, have a cup of tea, and then rush to the computer edging out Sesha and my naughty nephew (who magically develop an urgent need for the till then neglected computer) only to find it being shut off midway because there is no power, the inverter does not support the computer and the UPS of the computer supports it for at the most 10 seconds before blarring the most horrible beeps which we don’t know how to stop other than by shutting the whole thing down.
Meanwhile, let me tell you two good things that are on the card. One, I have bought a new camera, Canon Digital Rebel, or rather a friend bought it for me and I get it by the end of the November. Oh! I can’t wait to put my hands on it.
Two, the tickets for Sikkim in December are booked, we only have to see what we want to do there and where to go beyond New Jalpaiguri!
And maybe three, if we do not get a power backup for the computer soon, I am tempted to buy another laptop. But the problem is I do not want to keep changing the damn thing every two years, they are way too expensive for that. So, blogging will still be erratic.
