What a day?

The day had begun on a good note with mom having recouped considerably from her condition last evening. Her intake of food, however, left much to be desired.

I'd quite a few things to do and had left home by 11. Much against my wishes I'd to leave my car as Lekha insisted that I take an auto rickshaw due to the vagaries of behaviour by people on the day when election results were being declared. The LDF has made headway and the BJP has scored impressive wins for the first time in Kerala, despite the fact that its alliance with the SNDP wasn't formalised to the extent that it would have liked.  

I'd returned after completing all the work and then began a feeling of weakness. It was a bad scene but I decided to do two things viz. avoid intake of food and take adequate rest. Things had gotten much better by evening!

The One Rank One Pension for the defence forces has been notified by the government. The differences in perceptions will be known after the document has been thoroughly vetted by all concerned.

KP Vinod of the LDF is the winner in our ward. He'd come with his core group to thank us for his success and his daughter offered us chocolates. Such acts will definitely give him support from everyone despite differing party ideologies. We wished him success in all his endeavour.

Today was Santhan kochachhan's 4th remembrance day. How time has flown? We're also preparing ourselves for Diwali.......last year, the late Dharmettan was amidst us. I remember having thrust an active sparkler into his hands much to his consternation and his wife and daughter were quick to observe that it was for the first time that he'd done so because he's mortally scared of them.....and without our knowledge then, for the last time too!


A day that I'd like to forget because I was ungodly sick!
