beauty sleep

April 21, 2009

As we got out of the car to hit a trendy night spot off Linking Road, in Bandra, this bizarre shape on the sidewalk caught my eye. It was suspended in front of a lighting/lampshade store and I wondered if they’d accidently left an exotic shade out by accident when they shut shop. It took me a few seconds to figure out that it was a homeless man who’d made himself a cocoon to sleep mosquito-free! He’d hung his machchhardani from a hook in the awning and made a bed out of his bags. Voila! No malaria, scratches, or dengue for this enterprising citizen. I don’t know where he got it from or how long he’s been here (had it been day time, I would totally have asked him, but he wouldn’t be sleeping there if it were and, anyway, I wasn’t going to wake him up to do so.) Nevertheless, I was completely wowed!

    Doing some browsing and noticed your website appears a bit messed up in my K-meleon internet browser. But fortunately hardly anyone uses it any longer but you may want to look into it. – A hospital is no place to be sick. – Samuel Goldwyn 1882 – 1974

  17. This has been quite generous of people like you to make unreservedly all a lot of folks
    would have distributed as an electronic book in making some profit for themselves, specifically considering
    the fact that you might have tried it in the event
    you desired. The concepts also served to provide a great way to be
    sure that other people online have the same dreams the
    same as my personal own to see good deal more concerning
    this issue. I know there are millions of more
    pleasurable opportunities ahead for folks who read your website.
