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*

Sab Ganda Hai, Par Sab Dhandha Hai - Maha Govt Plot Twist

Everyone looks forward to weekends for the simple reason that they get to relax, unwind and recharge themselves for another hectic workweek. But not the Maharashtra Govt. Atleast not this weekend. In between Friday night and Saturday early morning, our State Govt proved to us that if they put their minds to getting something done, they will; even if it involves staying up post their working hours. Hail Politics and Self - Interest!
I guess it's pretty apparent by now what this writeup is going to be about. But no. I won't bore you with that anymore. Instead, I'll include a few links to help you catch up:

Part 1 - Around Goa in 72 hours

Others would ask, “Goa jaake peeya nhi toh kya kiya?”. I, on the other hand would ask, “Goa jaake ghuma nhi toh kya kiya?” Now one would tell you that churches, beaches, drinking and clubbing are the only things to go for in Goa. But that isn’t the case at all. There sure is a lot more to do than just sit in your room or laze around the beach. Especially when you’ve driven 14 hours to reach your destination. Phew.

So what did I do? I took the car (and then scooty; with a GA registration) and drove full North Goa to South Goa. Out of the 1314kms that we drove, 100kms happened within the state in 3 days.
Day 1 we went to Baga beach in the morning but since neither I nor my dad had any plans of getting wet that morning, we headed to Fort Aguada, past Sinquerim beach for some sightseeing.


 This place is around 10kms (30mins) from Baga. It’s up on a mountain/hill and is a famous tourist spot. How’d I know? The number of cars were a lot and it felt like half of the family tourist crowd cam…
