माया की माया

माया की माया के क्या कहने
करोड़ों की जायदाद और हीरों के गहने
इसीलिये सियासत में पत्नी, बेटा, बेटी और सगेह-सम्बन्दी ही सहने
लोगों कि सेवा और देश भक्ती का चोला पहने
उद्देश्य केवल एक, वोही, करोड़ों की जायदाद और हीरों के गहने

BSNL is unique

The other day I went to Statesman House on Barakhamba Road in Connaught Place for a business meeting. Among the companies listed with offices there was BSNL. Turns out it is their head office. In a city where it does not, and till now, cannot provide its services.

It happens only in India!

Michael Palin's Sahara

Just finished reading Michael Palin's account of his travels across the Sahara in 2001. He passes through Timbuktu. That name has always fascinated me.

Now, only if I get could my hands on the DVD or book of his Himalayan trip.
