I have been tagged. In order to avoid reading a paper I shall comply. So here it goes.

My oldest memory :

I think it would be a small room in a town in the hills of north bengal. My mother was making tea on a stove and trunks were lying all around. My father was standing in his uniform just outside the door talking to someone.

10 years ago :
I was funnier, ruder, less tolerant, less cynical, less easily depressed,had more hair,had no beard, didn't know what i wanted in life, was a thousand times fitter, didn't smoke as much(couldn't afford to), 25 kilos lighter, the same height and was good looking.

My first thought today morning :
I need to go pee

You built a time capsule today what would it contain?
Non-GM grains especially jowar , bajra and all. Photographs, an i-pod with a sheet of paper explaining what it is(or was) and what it does (or did). A photo of Pamela Anderson, showcasing her once very large "assets"

This year:
has been one crazy ride.Many ups and downs.

14 years from now - I may still be alive.

So I need to tag some people
I tag
Cynic in wonderland
The sisters Vyas
The not so talkative man.

and anyone else who wants to attempt

"Senior" :Welcome to Grad School Australopithecus. What are you in for?(like they do in prisons...makes one think.)

Me: A PhD. Hopefully will be done in 5 years.

"Senior" : looks at me strangely and gives what has often been described as a "hollow mirthless laugh" and goes away muttering "5 years, 5 years, 5 years"

Someone later tells me, he has been around the department for 8 years. And hasn't finished writing his thesis yet. Damn! That's scary.

I've got my own laptop now. for the first time ever I won't be sharing a computer with a family member. It is great news. I don't have to hide porn anymore. I can have it close by for ...err... easy reference.

I am also told that this means I no longer need to camp out in the lab/library to study.
This is where realization strikes ( like a trade union) "Oh! one can study in the library as well"
I've been abusing the library facilities. As a grad student, I can borrow 240 books at a time.
I've go a few...Wodehouse, Dorothy L Sayers, Agatha Christie, Leslie Charteris and the complete Peanuts from 1950 to 1952. Amazing. Some of the Wodehouses are first editions. I realized this slightly late , right after I've left my books lying near an open window when a hurricane struck.

I need to work on getting an internet connection.
