So, how was your sunday? Mine was Sublime. First of all, if it happens to be Sunday, then it must be in Kolkata. No matter what time of the year, sundays here are wonderful.Temperature today varied between 12 - 24 degrees. Just perfect. Imagine, room temperature outdoors. Blissful. And I did spend a goodish part of it outdoors because the indoors of our 5th floor north-west facing flat was freezing!
A couple of hours of catching up with my friends (SK, M) their kids and other animals. That would mean, 2 excited kids, 3 cousins (the oldest 7 years of age), 12 ducks (from the quite large geese to baby ducklings), turkey chicks, guniea fowl, 3 roosters, maybe some 15 hens of all shapes and size and 5 rabbits. While it was fun to soak up the wholesome, natural and earthiness of it all, I was mightily thankful that this menagerie was not in my home (Sorry SK).
The latest feluda flick (Gorosthane Sabhdan) is still running to packed houses as I found out when I went to Priya this morning for tickets for the evening show. This afternoon Zee Bangla telecast Shonar Kella. Thankyou, thankyou. Can't thank you enough. Seeing a beloved movie together with parents made it a bit more speical - shared activities are very rare as we grow up and grow old (alas)!
And to end the day, a leisurely evening stroll around Maddox Square park with its almost walkable walkways (the park is undergoing some sort of facelift). The smoke from some local chulhas, couples huddled in nooks and crannies, the glad eyed grandfather group - looking dapper dans all in smart sweaters and sneakers, all added to the atmosphere of a romatic winter night (although it was only comfily nippy)!
And then home for another cup of tea. Quite refreshed and ready for another week. Ah! Sublime that.
