Amma's health

Last weekend ,I was in Pune as Amma had been diagnosed with decrease in vision in her right eye.The doctors said that her optic nerve has been affected n retina is swollen- also cataract has set in. her blood pressure has also shot up considerably which led 1 dr. 2 comment that the vision has been affected due 2 increase in bp. But the blood tests,xray did not lead 2 any conclusions about the cause of decrease in her vision.

I went 2 pune, so that, i cud b with my parents 4 some time- also Harini has 2nd saturdays off n as her school annual day celebration was scheduled on the saturday evening,there was a possibility, that even Monday, may b declared a holiday.Monday was a holiday n v returned on monday noon.

My visit did not lessen my mom's eye discomfort.It just convinced me, that, i visited her when she was unwell.Actually, by doing this,i felt i did my duty, but did i ?

Harini was busy playing n fighting in equal measure with Trisha n my bhabhi n my brother indulged me by taking me out 2 various food joints- the binge far exceeded whatever weight i may hav lost by walking here on a daily basis.I am binging 4 no reason except, that, i may never get that chance again- i tnink, i am being extremely greedy- when will i ever control ? not that, i want 2, but, then, it cud lead 2 obesity n related problems -also, i am not so strong willed ,that, i will go on a diet-excercise, i shud control now, rather than binge in excess, n regret at leisure later.

My novel "Rangoli "

I have put my novel online -the site is ""Nowadays,v hav 2 market ourselves-our talents ,our skills et al-hence, i hav emailed the link of my novel 2 almost all on my email list.i hav sent reminders also, but then maybe, everyone is so busy, that, they neither have the time nor the inclination 2 read a novel by an ordinary person like me.another factor cud b the fact, that, 1 has 2 sign up at the site before they can comment n r rate the book.but 1 can read the novel by cliking on link-no need 2 sign up 4 is the link

I hope many go n comment as also rate my novel, so that i may finally c my novel in print.
1 former colleague commented that the novel read like my story- i quipped, that as no one will write my story,i had 2 write it myself !
