Terror struck? Of course!!!

In case anyone is interested, the terrorists have certainly succeeded in their namesake mission-of terrorizing people. Since we have been here-in the last year and half- there have been 10 major bombings in India, including 2 in Hyderabad. Whenever I make plans to go to what might be a popular or crowded place, that is the first thing that comes to my mind. We have started organizing our daily plans around what is happening in the country in general and particularly in our town. This certainly was not us and that is why I say that as far as we are concerned, the terrorists have succeeded.

Did two things today that I had told myself, I would never do:

1. Succumbed to the temptation of "naukarshahi" and now have a maid stay 8 hours with me (she even made rotis today)
2. Bought 2 pirated Indian editions of books that were on my list. My only excuse is that the two authors are not at all indigent by worldly standards and will not notice this infraction.

Shame, Shame!!
