In a perfect world...

Well, a perfect world, he wouldn't miss the train. But when was the last time we remembered the world to be perfect?

The Standoff

A little treat from me to all the Marvel and DC fans out there

Trivandrum - Life in the small city

I was reading Will Eisner's brilliant work, New York - The big city, and it inspired me into thinking why not document the unique things that happen around where I live, in what Rosh mockingly calls my Indo-French style :). Then i made a very long list of all the things that one gets to see only in the streets of Trivandrum, one of the Southernmost cities of India, and the homeland of yours truly.
So here I am, presenting to you all, Trivandrum - Life in the small city.
I am starting off with Matilda the "meenkaari" (Fish-seller), who is often seen trailing a long chain of cats as she goes from house to house selling the fish her husband had caught out in the sea. Once in a while, nagged by all the whining and purring, she tosses a small fish into the cloud of cats following her. Will be adding more to this post as time permits. Do check back! Have a wonderful day!

Monsieur Lapadite

Watched Inglorious Basterds. And couldn't help but wonder if Monsieur Lapadite would ever be able to forgive himself after having betrayed the family he had sheltered. Btw, loved the movie. Awesome performances and remarkable storytelling!
