Rejoicing the Republic and a Little Recognition

Pine Cone, Pinus Khasia
The last few days have been erratic, as reflected by my recent blogging behaviour. I expect things to settle down to normal in a week or so. Also expecting some changes for the better. Have a lot of things to say, share, discuss and also one (actually two) meme to take care of.

Thanks to Aquamarine for pointing it out that this blog was the Blog of the Day on the World Seek Project website for January 19. The other honourees (known to me) are The City of Joy (18 January), Coffee Tea or Me and The World is Your Cave (17 January). I would like to thank Aklanta who referred my blog to them. Interestingly I'm listed under Shillong though I blog from Delhi. But I like it that way, Shillong being the place I most identify with. The accompanying photograph (above left)is of a pinus khasia cone, native of the Khasi Hills of Meghalaya.

Aklanta cajoled me into waking up at an unearthly hour of 5:30 AM (tough when you go to sleep at 1:30 AM) for a visit to Rajpath. The purpose was to click some photographs of the ongoing Republic Day celebration rehearsals (and we were not the only ones as the pic above reveals). The results of this early morning endeavour will soon be visible on our respective blogs.

Heyyyyyyyyy Congrats! :)
And I agree that your blogging was a little irregular this week. But at least you "expect things to settle down to normal in a week or so". I dunno when I'll feel settled *sigh*
Okay, Just one word of caution! I am sure your visit to Rajpath was great but please be careful. I've lived in Delhi for sometime and my cousins have lived there for years. They always told me that they were extra careful before republic day and independence day.
Take care! :D
