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*

Mira Road's Son and now Hero - RIP Major Kaustubh Rane

A son, a husband, a father and now a HERO. Gone too soon but not in vain. 

Major Kaustubh Rane (29), resident of Mira Road, lost his life Rane, 29, lost his life fighting for the nation in the Gurez Sector of Jammu & Kashmir on August 7. He was among the four Army personnel killed in a gunfight with terrorists near the LoC in the Bandipura district on Tuesday. His coffin arrived late on Wednesday night and the last rites took place on Thursday morning with full military honours (he was decorated with the Sena Gallantry Medal by President Ram Nath Kovind on the 69th Republic Day celebrations this year).

Police had cordoned off the entire area around his building. Thousands of emotional onlookers (practically 3/4 of Mira Road's population) lined up alongside the road or from building tops and terraces to pay their respects and bid farewell to the man who made them proud and sacrificed himself to ensure their safety.

Raising slogans of "Major Kaustubh Rane, Amar Rahe" and …

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…
