I was peacefully walking on the pavement on the 100 ft road in Indiranagar. I stepped off the pavement to cross the intersecting road. The next thing I knew the world somersaulted around me and I was lying on my side on the road with my foot inflating slowly like a football being filled with air. One of those inevitable small pieces of stone had strategically positioned itself in such a way as to be under my foot at the right moment to turn my ankle and spill me all over the road. Why spoil your day with the rest of the tale of woe about how I got home and how long I took to heal. It is best that I close that chapter with the thought that brought a smile to my lips even on that day.

Some people will do anything for money – even work!
The unlikeliest of places to bring a smile to my lips has been my super-boss’ office. He had this prominent sign on his wall.

Every time I entered his room I used to wonder how he himself answered that question – considering he spent more time with it than any of us did! The thought of how I would answer that question on his behalf invariably left me smiling at the end of the visit!
