Return to sender...

Ahh... Back in IIMA. Second year beckons. So does all my luggage on the first floor. Big cardboard boxes full of heavy things. So more later tonight...

I have noticed an interesting trend. I get most of my hits on working days. Saturdays and Sundays are lifeless. Which means I get read in the office. Which means noone actually spends any money to read my blog. That makes me not want to write a book. Which means I wont get royalty and a heavy advance. Which means I wont make any multi-million charity contributions or civic donations. Society doesn't deserve that.

Read me on weekends. For society's sake.

And finally, an old mallu joke. Friends in a bus going through some photographs. Some camping trip or something. Bus very crowded. Bus breaks suddenly. Hero drops a photograph. Photograph glides through the air vehemently searching for a resting place. Finally finds one on the floor safe in the shadows of Cicily aunty's shimmering silk saree.

Hero: Madam can you lift your saree for a second?
Cicily: WHAT???!!!!! WHY???!!!!
Hero: I want to take a photo...

Have a great new week. And England Rocks!!!

contributing to your altruistic future-charity-donation scheme,

Most people read blogs from offices only. Its the same story with my blog.

*with a tinge of jealousy in the voice*
not that it gets as many hits as yours!

England rocked for quite a while.. but then, Zidane is made of a different stuff :)

BTW.. did you ever go on a white water rafting trip to Shivpuri? Your post title "Return to Sender" is actually the name of one of the "rapids" there!

Quite a coincidence, if it is!

I noticed the same thing with my blog....a big dip on weekends. The Penguin fellows noticed that too and my royalty cheque bounced. :(

Sidin, People read you during their most leisurely moments and thats 40 hours a week of undivided attention as compared to about 1 or 2 hours at home during weekends!

Find your musings eminently readable. I am reading this during what might be midnight… in India. Here on the flip side, it is the middle of my late-lunch on Wall Street. Oh! And don't be put off from writing a book. based on what I read on your blog, you can have my money. I trust, this is going to be a paperback - I don't, as a matter of principle, buy hardbacks.
