I love this watch…it has a dial that is blue at certain angles and green at others; it is digital, which I love in a watch. It has a large, easily-read number display. It has dual timings (I can see what time it is for my daughter, half-way across the world),a timer, a stopwatch,and five different alarms, and the usual day/date displays too. And it has a light-up display, which makes it so convenient when I am, for example, sitting in a movie or play. AND…it is the only design I have seen till now, for a digital watch to come anywhere close to being aesthetic. The name of the maker is “Armitron” (God knows who that is) and the price? Ten dollars at some mall in Los Angeles!
Read an article in today’s Times of India, that the slender loris is being hunted unmercifully, for certain (mythical) properties that its body parts possess….its eyes are supposed to be good for eye infections, some body parts are supposed to be aphrodisiacs, and so on…each animal is valued at Rs.30,000 or more…a dangerous thing to have that value on one’s head!
Salman Khan has been finally sentenced to one year in jail (which his well-paid lawyers will appeal, of course) and –don’t miss this– fined RUPEES FIVE THOUSAND for killing an animal of an endangered species. For his killing of another species, he is yet to come to trial. But the amount of the fine…..that’s what’s hard to take.
This morning, I decided to do the Lal Bagh walk, as I have always felt I should know more about the beautiful garden that is one of the lungspaces of Bangalore. The three hours I spent there just flew by!
Felt very happy to meet
