Enjoy The Silence

I've tried watching "Times Now" - India's version of CNN / BBC, and while their obsessive coverage of Pakistan's harbouring of Osama Bin Laden provides a unique insight (since no one hates Pakistan more as a nation, than India)  the majority of their BLARING VOLUME advertisements are a cacophony of Hinglish.  Hindi-Hindi-Hindi-great experiences... Hindi-Hindi-Hindi-amazing offer.  Hindi-Hindi-Hindi-are you okay? Hindi-Hindi-Hindi-false alarm.  The acCENTS emphaSIZED on all the wrong syllabelS causes the verbal interpretation centers in my brain to cramp up.  I've taken to working and getting ready in my room in silence.  Much more tranquil.

  1. LOL! 1 minute ago, the daily Bangalore power outage hit, blacking out my room for about 4 or 5 seconds. Netbook told me I was on battery power. Times Now Was Silenced. Tranquility returned. Large Screen Samsung did not turn itself back on after the diesel generators kicked in.. and most gratefully, wifi signal somehow remained viable, not kicking me offline.

    These black outs happen at least once a day, if not more. I've been having dinner, taking a shower, or walking through the lobby when they've occurred. I HOPE one doesn't hit when I am in the room key-card activated Otis Elevator =(
