The Tender King

Last weekend we went to watch a play at the Phoenix theater in SF. It was very entertaining.It still baffles me how the stage artists remember 2-3 hours of play dialogues.

The story was around 2nd world war. The play had only 3 actors. A German woman who wants to save her brother who is in a war camp. She is a mistress of a US guy who is in London as part of the coalitions committee and is sent to the US army head to sign a letter on agreement of the Japan bombings.

What was fascinating about the play was how the 3 would swap between 2 scenes. One small stage with sofa, table and 2 chairs. The timing of the lightings was outstanding.

And the audience sits right around the small stage. They cover 2/3 area around the stage and are a feet away from the actors. Right in front of the actors, eye to eye.

Reminded me of practice sessions my mom and sis used to have at the Mapusa Hanuman Natyagraha during Ramnavmi.More like an audition and we were the judges.

Btw food and drinks are allowed. So imagine how you would enjoy a live play with a chilled beer in your hand.


I was 15 minutes late to work. My office shuttle picks us exactly at 9 and is rarely a minute or 2 late. At times it is 10-15 minutes late but it is difficult to predict on what days.

Today is one of those days. As I started the drive from home to the office shuttle pick up spot, I knew I don't have to hurry. I don't have to panic. I need not worry.

And guess what? It is 9:25 and I am still waiting along with the few others for my shuttle.

There have been such situations in recent past where I felt 'oh no! Got to take the train. Gosh! What's the train schedule like? I'll miss it.'
And ar all times I have been right.

So 3 cheers to Baba Shreya!

Personalized workspace

Do you decorate your cubicle? I guess I am not that into such things and would never carry stuff to office and keep them there to stay.

Wouldn't it be painful to then pack them when you gotto move? Would be very depressing. Don't you think?

I think our work desks portray our personality in many ways.

Mine is usually plain and dull. Shows how lazy I am.

Here are some pictures I took in office today. The little teddy, looking to get attention of every person walking towards the printer looks pretty lonely. Don't you think?
