1. As i arrived upstairs with two cups of tea( tu kaptee used to be childhood joke for beginners in English!)- students showed me the bullet in the picture. We speculated about how it might have ended up on this roof.
2. I recalled a similar event when I used to visit Gandhi Smarak Nidhi: one day after I left the premises and it rained- a bullet was fired up on the khappar and i was informed of the same in the evening-what followed was a drama involving a police officer who was Kafkaesque to say the least. That day there were plenty of dark clouds and the word ricochet was suggested by me to the officer. That word still seems to be appropriate.
3. I elaborated the meaning of weblog for a student who enquired. I was taking the picture using smartphone when I unwittingly covered the AI camera up using the latest cover. Then after taking the picture i tell them what topology is- why Web is called that and how weblog became blog. When I first discovered the word log i was surprised to see how woods had entered into the library.
4. The tenants: “last time there were no tenants” used to be my mishearing in the song The Plan from Tenet. The singer speaks tenet. I recalled how i struggled and almost lost a bet to my friend in college over Enrique Iglesias’ pronunciation of trying in the Escape which used to sound like drive. My classmate sarcastically had to insinuate towards my using subtitles for watching English movies then. I recently asked a regular blogger about pronunciation of their cat’s name Iccle: it’s pronounced like trickle. A cat visited us this morning.
