Writer's Block ? Maybe Not

This is one of those rare days when I don't know what do with myself. And I'm saying this in a boring sort of a way.

Has it ever happened to you that during your exams or during a time when you need your concentration the most, it sort of ditches you and you start thinking of something totally unimportant that you can't get it out of your mind ?

It always seems to happen with me.
And now that there is nothing, absolutely nothing to do, I have full access to the laptop, my brain refuses to supply me with any ideas to help while away my time. How unfair !

I have spent approximately half an hour sitting in front of the laptop trying to force thoughts into my mind to write but there seems to be some Great Wall of China which is protecting it from I-don't-know-what.

That, my readers is a writer's block.

The first thought that's finally found its way through was Demonetization but I've already made 4 posts on it (the most recent one being yesterday). I'm definitely not making another.

Then I thought about writing about my new found interest Martin Garrix, but then he isn't exactly new & I don't know anything about him which the world already doesn't know. Bad idea.

Next I wondered if I should write about the recent train accident in Mumbai. But that's been in the news for almost 3 days now and it's kind of sad. Not for Friday reading. So I decided against it.

Something happy ?

 Janardhan Reddy spent close to 500 crores on this daughter Brahmani's wedding to Rajiv Reddy (I don't know who he is, but he's got to be some son of a rich dad!). The wedding invitation contained a LCD screen with a wedding video. Her sari itself is said to have cost close to 17 crores. Imagine the amount of gold (70-80 crores) that would have gone with it. *shock face*.

This should help . 
Anyways, the wedding's invited a lot of criticism because it was done during the demonetization week in India. Income Tax officials are literally after the Reddy family, which is not good news for them considering that Mr.Reddy has already served a jail sentence for some other reason.

One good thing out of the whole affair- 500 crores. Imagine how much labour that would have employed ! Hell of a lot of employment generated I'd say !

Oh yeah, there's the Ballard Estate festival starting tomorrow from 2pm-10pm. Adult and Student pass is Rupees 500. Only thing is that you can take a friend along for free with the Student pass. Only valid identity proof is required. How cool is that ! Provided you find a friend to go with who doesn't already have his/her exams going on. *smile smile wink wink*

Hey wait ! Did I just write something about Demonetization ? I said I wouldn't. Never Mind. *hehehe*

Close Encounters - Spotting a LEOPARD 12ft away @Nagpur

Presentations, college activities and research work had become my life. Spending 4-5 hours on the laptop and another 3 on the phone had become an everyday thing. Not that I was complaining, but when my college's Nature Club teacher in-charge Prof. Radhika D'Souza asked me if I would like to come on a 4 night, 5 days trip to the Nagzira Tiger Reserve in Nagpur, I immediately said yes. The trip was scheduled from the 28th of December to the 1st of January 2019. This meant that I would be missing my birthday as well as New year in one shot. But trust me, I didn't regret my decision one bit.
Our train was from CST at 3pm. There were around 40 other people on the trip (whom, by the way I didn't know at all; except for a few. But I later on realized that it didn't matter who you knew or didn't know at the beginning of the trip. By the end of it, there wasn't a single person whom you couldn't smile at). This was to be my first long distance train journey. So I…

CRPF Personnel martyred in J&K

The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) is the largest of India's Central Armed Police Forces. The CRPF's primary role lies in assisting the State/Union Territories in police operations to maintain law and order and counter insurgency. With 239 battalions and various other establishments, the CRPF is considered India's largest paramilitary force and has a sanctioned strength of 313,678 personnel. 

Yesterday, at 3:15pm, a Scorpio driven by a Jaish suicide bomber who was a local youth carrying a huge amount of explosives, deliberately crash banged into 1 of the 78 trucks which formed part of the convoy carrying approximately 2500 CRPF personnel who were returning from their vacation and proceeding to resume work in Awantipora, 30kms from Srinagar.
