A brief interval

Every now and then I make my readers extremely happy - by allowing them some peace with silence on my blog. This, then, is yet another such happy occasion. So, if you see dancing on the streets and people suddenly laughing out aloud for no reason, please do not immediately think of ambulances and straitjackets. It is merely one of my hapless readers unable to contain his joy.

Yes - it is that time of the year again when I go around to haunt the Himalayas instead of my blog. I shall be leaving for Delhi tomorrow and shall be there till the 14th. (A warning: If I find a PC there and if the heat there has not manage to completely fry the innards of my skull - calling it brains seems to invite a lot of Boos and I have no need for further reminders - you may not necessarily find me silent in this period) From the 15th to the 27th, you can really relax for I shall be doing my celebrated act of the gasping trekker all the way to Roopkund and, hopefully, back. 

Meanwhile my PC has ultimately given up the ghost after living to a ripe old age of 9 years. The timing could have been better. Had it died a month back I could have said "Le PC est mort, Vive le PC" and lined up the next. As it is, any such endeavor shall await my return. So, maybe, who knows how much further peace shall reign on Earth. Anyone feeling appropriately grateful can organize an appropriate requiem for my deceased cyber-companion.

Before the cacophony of untuneful joyous singing erupts, I shall bid Au Revoir.

    1. Thanks Zephyr! I sure hope there will be and that I will be around to share them :)

      Can you believe it - after all the viagara and sundry product comments that Blogspot's Spam filter let through, it classified your comment as spam? :)

  10. I tried really hard not to write this, but I couldn't help it. Great writing has to be punished...er, appreciated. I'm giving you a Liebster for writing amazingly original posts and side-splitting humor! you can collect it here http://chaitanyavs.wordpress.com/2013/06/04/my-liebster-blog-award-im-a-liebster-blogster/

    Now you have 11 more questions to answer. Enjoy ;)

    1. I feel suitably punished...err...appreciated :) Really - I love to hear people say that what I write is side-splitting humor. I thought I only tickled mildly.

      Hmm! Liebster :) I am deeply grateful that you considerd me worthy. This year I have already put up Libester posts and have had to regret not writing acceptance posts for four others. Please do not take it as being blase about being given one - just that if I keep writing Liebster posts people may feel justified in thinking of me as a crank :)

  11. I was so looking forward to it- not the break but you being in Delhi. I would have cooked to make you sing. I would have given up anything to meet the trio, as I mentioned in a facebook post long ago.

    Like you said, 'It is that time of the year' I am hoping you'll be here on a similar trip next year as well and I'll be back too, so we can catch up on everything and you could sing two songs for me, or maybe more :)
