Dance-with-drums-during-Ganesha-FestivalYesterday was the last day of our annual Ganesh festival. Traffic jams everywhere and sensible people just stayed at home. In Pune, the dhol tasha effect could be heard from morning and as I write this, at 8.45 am on the day following the immersion, I can still hear the last of the processions reaching the immersion sites on the river bank.

My problem is that I am lost without my daily morning dose of four newspapers to read and four crossword puzzles to solve. Yes, Pune’s newspapers shut down yesterday and no printing took place.

So, after waiting for long and having discovered that I will not get my morning fix, I am ranting here and will now go off to read something or the other.

    Try the ‘something’ this time and then you can have the ‘other’ for later! 😉

    But surely there are plenty of other newspapers in other countries you could read? Or the BBC News?

    • I do not like to read newspapers online Nick. And it is not so much the news that I missed but solving the crossword puzzles. It is a kind of ritual as it were!

      I did catch the news on the TV and some online too.
