fell inlove with language as a student; the affair continued all through the customary situations such as college, marriage, career and motherhood. Just found one more means to continue the long term romance. Thematically, there's been loads of magic and tons of logic inmy encounter with life.Sometimes magic happens when my logic expects it the least and sometimes there's an after thought that the magic was logic after all.
Shall pursue the answer to this riddle all my life,

Haven't been recording any of the stuff happening....when stuff keeps happening all the time.... any way thought i would be regular if i began with funny stuff from college. The notice board in one of the colleges i go to, is a blackboard, where info is chalked out. Primitive, but useful. Yesterday, the board carried the names of the staff who were in charge of issuing hall tickets to different groups of students. One gifted student decided to modify his teacher Deepa's name. He rubbed off the D, (gender bias intended, am sure it's a he) and wrote a P in it's place, making her name Peepa, which means 'barrel' in tamil. The enraged teacher went to the Principal and requested him never to put her name on the board again. She would do any duty assigned to her, But since it was a small college, it would be sufficient to put up the room number, where the students had to go.
