    Things on my desk 

    We have shifted from our original location to a newer and uninhabited island of a place. Anyways, wanted to write down what is on my desk at the moment.

    1. A photograph of a girl jumping on a beach from Chromasia – with Floyd’s “Learning to Fly” on it
    2. ClocksColdplay
    3. Calvin & Hobbes
    4. Snap of STAR-PLUS at Indijoes (a lovely restaurant on Airport Road) in Bangalore just before the Rehman concert (which is another amazing story)
    5. Something there is that doesn’t love a wall – Akanksha
    6. Hugh Macleod
    7. IfRudyard Kipling
    8. DaffodilsWilliam Wordsworth
    9. Mending WallRobert Frost
    10. Sabka Katega – bodhiTree

    Other than these I have a laminated copy of a Charles Swindoll saying and some work related stuff.

    Subtle lyrics be damned 

    Sample these from “Leaving Beirut” – Roger Waters. By the way it is an awesome song!!

    Oh George! Oh George!
    That Texas education must have fucked you up when you were very small

    But now an Englishman abroad is just a US stooge
    The bulldog is a poodle snapping round the scoundrel’s last refuge

    Is gentleness too much for us
    Should gentleness be filed along with empathy
    We feel for someone else’s child
    Every time a smart bomb does its sums and gets it wrong
    Someone else’s child dies and equities in defence rise
    America, America, please hear us when we call
    You got hip-hop, be-bop, hustle and bustle
    You got Atticus Finch
    You got Jane Russell
    You got freedom of speech
    You got great beaches, wildernesses and malls
    Don’t let the might, the Christian right, fuck it all up
    For you and the rest of the world
