  • Stuck in traffic. #Mumbai is definitely back. #
  • Today’s one of those days I wish I could clone myself. Tenfold. One clone will stay home and sleep. #
  • @hiway: Bleh. Maybe I need horcruxes instead of clones. At least one part of my soul gets rest, then. in reply to hiway #

  • I bet there were no candlelight vigils for those who died in the #mumbai train blasts last year. #
  • Caught a glimpse of Sushmita Sen on shop TV and turned to look back. #
  • All the tweets on my homepage are replies to others. Twitter has gone from a bloggy-style space to a chat-room-ey thing. #
  • Friends, Twitter-followers, readers – I’ve had enough. I don’t effing want to hear about it anymore. Don’t talk to me about terror anymore. #
  • I’m going back to my mundane not-on-South-Mumbai-radar unimportantly suburban life. Go talk about terrorism to someone else. #

  • Just got the news that one of my direct reportees passed away this morning. He was 22. #
  • We’re monitoring a recruitment test on campus. Just not hitting me-my most steadfast team member is no more. #
  • On way to prayer meet. Then face team & talk them thru grief. He was a pal as much as colleague. Sid, dunno how we ll manage without you. #
  • There’s a reason they say ‘silent as a tomb’. That’s what the office is today. #

  • I lost my right-hand man yesterday. But I’m overawed by the fortitude that his team is showing. Am honoured to work with such people. #

    I lost a student to a half bottle of English brandy and a massive asthmatic attack last October. He was 21.

    I hate it when they go suddenly and without having lived fully.
