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.
