Sundays in my City #1

Just another rainy Sunday afternoon - the view from my house in Lucknow (U.P.) India.  I suppose it could be depressing, if you let it get you down!

This  feature is hosted by Unknown Mami.


  1. Hmmm... I used to - a long time ago - have a pen pal who lived in Lucknow. How cool!

  2. Hi there!
    How do you get your clothes dry when it's so wet?
    Do you get mold inside?

    In Casa it's humid but not that wet! :)
    Thanks for your visit - I'll be back here!

  3. I quite love rain! Not for days in a row, but I love it!

  4. Great photograph Gaelikaa. The Lucknowis are famous for goofing off at the slightest excuse aren't they? Like heat, or cold or rain?

  5. Oh, I love the designs in this gate...I'll bet it would make a great close-up, too!

  6. I love the rain, but it is still a few months away ...

  7. I'm so excited to have gotten a peak into your world!

  8. still looks interesting to me!

  9. Thanks for stopping by!

    I love the rain - I've lived in the desert all my life, so water - in just about any form! - is so refreshing and soothing to me!

  10. It washes the streets down and freshens the place up.
    Having to stay in is dull, but at least you don't have to go out in it.

  11. The rain is beautiful, I love it, but probably because we don't get enough here in So. Cal. But like you said, don't let it get you down!

  12. Are you having a lot of rain or is this just a rainy afternoon? Aren't some areas of India flooding? Me, I love rainy afternoons, of course, it's been a while since Alabama has seen rain. What kind of temperatures do y'all have? We're having 100 with a heat index of 112 and a humidity level of 80%, talk about steamy and hot! Very good picture! I've often wondered what your house and family look like.

Good Intentions

I had great intentions for this week.  I'd write a thousand words every day, review six books, get my Loose Bloggers Consortium (LBC) post up well in advance.  And did I?  No, no, no.  I wrote about two hundred words per day and have been trying to read and review two books and still not finished reading.  My target of 19,000 words until today by now is around 15,000 on my 100kWords in 100 Days Challenge.  It seems I'm just not cutting the mustard.

I have the intentions.  I just don't seem to have the mojo to carry out the things I want to do. So many intentions, not enough time.  I've not been sleeping well lately.  Probably very tired.

So - my intention now is to try to get more sleep.  Then carry out the original intentions.That' what I intend to do.  As of now.  Meanwhile, my post is up one day late.

I had to go out to the bank this morning to get some pending work finished.  I clicked the above picture en route.  It seems that after a three week winter, we're…

Global Peace - Is It Possible? LBC Post

I can't believe it's Friday already and time for another LBC post.  The Loose Blogger's Consortium (LBC) is a blogging group consisting of about half a dozen of us who blog together every Friday on the same topic.  We are indebted to Ramana (aka blogger Rummuser) for this week's topic.  Instead of just giving a straightforward topic like anyone else would, he posed a question instead.  Is global peace possible? he asked.  I decided to answer his question in a Tweet sized sentence.

Is global peace possible?  Of course it is. If everyone gets in harmony with each other.   But will it happen?  How on earth would I know?

As we say in Ireland (well, as they used to say when I lived there two decades ago), that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Thanks to All-Free-Download for the photo.  Thanks to Lettercount for their character counting facilities.  And thanks to my LBC group for being there every Friday in blogging solidarity.

The Curse of Poverty - Short Story

As the dawn light spread its fingers across the early morning, Rajji stirred uneasily.  She tended to sleep like a street dog - ever alert, with one ear open.  But she'd been tired the previous night and as a consequence had slept rather heavily. Her life was a constant struggle, filled with tasks and responsibilities. If she hadn't been careful, she might have been robbed!  She sprang into alert mode and clutched about her person.  No, everything was in place, the precious money was undisturbed.  Thanks to her employment with the bank, cleaning for one hour every morning, six days a week, she even had a bank account which one of the bank employees had helped her to set up.  What little money she had saved up was safe.....

She looked over her children.  Babu, her son lay sleeping still.  Muniya, her daughter, stirred, close to waking up.  But where was Gudiya, her youngest child?  Might have woken up early and gone to wander around.  Gudiya knew everyone around here and every…
