My weekends these days

To see a world in a grain of sand
And heaven in a wild flower
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity for an hour.
- William Blake

To feel I have seen the world when I go to nandi Hills on Weekends
And heaven clicking flowers every time
The throttle raising while in my hand
and reaching there in an hour.
- Kim


तुम शब्द बने,तुम भाव बने,
लम्हा, रचना की जान बने,
तुम संग रहे, तो मैंने ग्रन्थ लिखा,
मैं पूर्ण हुआ, सम्पूर्ण हुआ.

Murphy's Law at its best

It roughly states "if anything can go wrong, it will".
I see it's true now. In my case it is "If there are many ways of procuring something, the way I choose will always be the wrong one"

I had an option to buy a camera in a shop. But I see its available for cheap somewhere else. I order. I wait. I am still waiting. They have crossed their commitment date many a times now. Every time they don't meet their commitment date, they advance the commitment date to a week later. And when I call them up they shamelessly say, Sir our commitment day is not until next week, So we wouldn't be shipping it until then. After that I remind them that their "commitment date" (whatever it means) was last to last week, they have no answers.
Idiots. Shameless idiots.

No wonder online shopping has not yet caught up in India. Thanks to such "committed" vendors.

Update Finally cancelled my order.
