A month ends and a lot of stuff to narrate

As readers will have observed, I am returning to this blog at the end of the month ... my previous post was on the 1st of February. A lot of things have happened in the past month, the most important of these being the fact that time was always short. Let me first list the main things that have livened up my life:
  1. Global economy  continued to deteriorate: not that this is news, but the fact is that this decline has affected my practice considerably. I am sure that everyone else has also been affected likewise - businesses, professionals, salaried class, and so on. 
  2. In Mumbai, for a whole week, culture ruled as the Kala Ghoda Arts Festival got under way during the second week of February. I visited the main center three times, saw and photographed many artifacts, installations and sights. Also, I went to three heritage walks - one at Ballard Pier, one at  D.N. Road, and one at Gateway of India. I also  recited a few poems at an open-mic on one of the days at the lawns of the David Sassoon Library. Finally, I also participated in three contests run by Caferati: the SMS poem, the 55-word story and the Theme poetry slam. While I got disqualified in the first two, I was selected to be a finalist in the slam onthe basis of my poem on "Paper". More about this slam later.
  3. p4poetry.com had its monthly poetry reading at the residence of Raj/Renuka at Juhu on the 24th. The  theme  was "LOVE" and I recited two poems. 
  4. Inas got selected for her industrial training at the Taj  Palace and Tower.
  5. We completed six years in Mazgaon on the 8th of February.
  6. I started gymming again, joining the gym Mission Fitness near Noor Baug. Nishrin paid half of the fees, while I pitched in with the rest. The total fees for 1 year were 10000 INR. Since the day I joined, I have not missed a single one of the nine-odd days. I am already feeling better - both physically and mentally.
Having listed these events and occasions, I am already feeling bored to write more. Hence, I am going to end here. More in another entry.
