@wildiris Well yes, but isn’t that sad? Perhaps we’d be better served accepting the present. Change, as they say, is the only constant.
@wildiris On the hunt for that elusive Golden Age? Cue Woody Allen: “…that’s what the present is. It’s a little unsatisfying…”
I think there’s a reason 3) Digital publishing & interfaces are still at its infancy.
@shalynee Oh good. We just avoided the we-were-on-the-same-train-but-didn’t-know disappointment. I should check Twitter more frequently.
@shalynee Wait, were you on the Delhi Rajdhani last night?
Idli, vada, appam, filter coffee. If there is a breakfast heaven, it is here in South India.
@umadamle Haha, I realized that soon after I sent the message.
@umadamle :) What about yours? Btw, would love to meet up whenever you’re in Delhi next.
@gonsalves_r I’m out Sunday onwards as well. Back on Wednesday. When do you get off work?
@gonsalves_r Indiranagar today. You?
@zainabbawa Exce—wait for it…
@monisha_rajesh Glad to’ve been of help.
@lokallobaat And setup around Sher Mandal too! Really bummed about missing it. Now I fear for all my upcoming winter travel away from Delhi.
@monisha_rajesh Mailed lo-res photos for now due to the flaky data connection. Let me know if you want the originals.
@gonsalves_r Definitely. Attending jsFoo?
@monisha_rajesh Afraid so. I was taken aback as well. Publisher’s ‘marketing initiative’ I presume?
@monisha_rajesh About 8 pages with Kami Mata, Waiting for the Australians, Col. Barog’s tunnel, NRI, Shiv on Kaveri Exp & finally, train 80.
This Bangalore Rajdhani was a complete wreck during my last 2 journeys in April.
More improvements: Upgraded coaches, very neat & clean, prompt & polite service and food that’s served hot and no longer devoid of taste.
The Malaria Express aka The Terminator is a full on jugaad train with an MCD van+MCD bloke on a wagon spraying anti-larval stuff around NCR.
It’s Oct issue features, amongst others, excerpts from @monisha_rajesh’s travelogue ‘Around India in 80 Trains’ & a certain Malaria Express.
Nice. This Rajdhani has a great new bilingual in-train magazine by the Indian Railways called ‘Rail Bandhu’. Any idea when this started?
And off! NZM to SBC.
@anexasajoop Ah, home… I’m sure it misses you too.
Well of course they couldn’t let Gurgaon take away all the dust glory and real estate crazies. Noida has and is Greater, after all.
@whatsuprocky Hey, I’m heading down for jsFoo next week.
NH7 Weekender Sunday tickets in the bag. Who’s coming?
@shalynee Trippy shit! (pun unintended)
@zainabbawa Fire away?
Bangalore, jsFoo, Munnar, Thekkady…
