Make the time count for your well being. Use a structured analysis of the time to use for different things around the house or out of it. Travel or play, health or leisure – if you are aware of the limitation set by time, you will realize how precious it is.

Are you busy or can you set aside some time for me?

I either sit with my feet on the table or I am running around like a kitten who has just found a scent of that imaginary mouse. Everything hinges on what is cooking and how quickly I can get going. Maybe you too have had that feeling – “It was only 7:40 just 10minutes ago”.
And then there are days when I just cannot move away from the table. I doze and I dream. But I do not write or do any chore around the house and I stop kicking the cat. According to my scheduler it must happen once every two weeks…but it has not seen my scheduler. It drops in every other day. Where was I? Ah! Move those feet offa the table!

Out of the house

Inside the house these things carry on like some illicit romance being covertly played out; or a murder being carefully executed. (No! I am not talking about my cat or yours). Get out of the house and you see a whole new world waiting for you. You have games, exercises, excursions and visits to the family zoo…er...the family visit to the relatives’ place.

Chalk out the schedule

Zoo: Do not like the monkey – he makes faces at me. Not worth the time spent in travel to and from the zoo.
Railroad crossing: The train comes at 12:00 PM. If we go at 11:55 we can avoid being run over. And don’t play with that watch when we travel…at noon.
Gymnasium: The watchman will remove the key and leave at 5:00. So, all we have to do is wait for 5 o’clock. Then we can loiter around outside the gym and leave after spending a decent 10 minutes…waiting for the watchman.
Relative’s place: Now this is always exciting. They have two or three terrorists who plan daylight robberies and murder. They haven’t learned their alphabets yet. But they like to make a lot of noise…it makes living worthwhile. I mean they have not yet murdered me! Ah! You better avoid that sponge cake, my dear.

Chores and travel

Chores: If you want to do the chores around the house, you have to make it back in time. That is not so exciting. The home is not a travel destination…I think. If you go to close to lunch time, you will only have time to eat…and sleep. Well, tomorrow is another day. Always like chores, there is so much to do around the house, mend the window, clean the cobwebs…Zzz…wash the clothes….zzzz…
Travel: The best places to travel are always out of the house. I have noticed it several times. So, here we will see some places to go when you are in India.

Goa and Jaipur

a) Goa: Replete with beaches, water sport activities, casinos, yoga clubs and honeymoon cottages, exciting Goa presents a typical beach paradise for tourists on their family vacation. Being one of the most sought after honeymoon destination in India, Goa has all the amenities any newlywed couple would need for spending their nights in bliss and days in agony…sorry harmony.
b) Jaipur: Elephants and architecture, Jaipur is the Indian pink city. Even I like pink and the rulers much before me, decided to color their city pink. Come over to Jaipur if you do not believe me! You will find big, big palaces and temples…all colored pink by God! How did they manage it? I can barely cover one side of the living room wall with crayon color before my mom goes berserk. That is why they are the rulers. Families come to Jaipur I think to figure out the same thing. It makes this tourist destination very excited…sorry exciting.

Hyderabad and Mumbai

c) Hyderabad: This is another very popular family vacation tourist destination in South India. Botanical gardens (read exotic insects and plants for them to feed on), gardens and shopping, and a few palaces thrown in make Hyderabad a personalized pendant different from other cities and towns. Prominent among the reminders of the Qutb Shahi dynasty and the rule of the Nizams, the Charminar is bathed in architectural splendor and is only matched by the biryani – a delectable dish that has made the region popular.
d) Mumbai: The center for film and finance in India, Mumbai is a reflection of Hollywood but is overcrowded. It has shopping beaches and nightlife but more importantly it has maximum number of billionaires/millionaires in India. In terms of global finance flow, it ranks as one of the top ten centers for commerce in the world. It is a good travel destination for tourists on their annual family vacation. You have buildings such as the Victoria Terminus built in Gothic Revival architectural style. You should visit Mumbai during the festival times. The two main festivals the people celebrate here are Banganga Music Festival that takes place in January and Elephanta Festival in February. Elephanta Festival is also a celebration involving dance and music.

Ooh! That cat is…never mind. Lately it has come to my mind that the things we do are either inside or outside the house. I asked my mom about it but then she…Do you have a spare table that you could lend me?

Yes Nancy one must make the effort. I think you are taking a well deserved break in between stories.I think you should try and concentrate on publishing some in e-book form. That is only a suggestion of course.

Snerfu, I could not comment yesterday as I was away on holiday to few cities just by watching your exciting videos - so I had time to spent nearly an hour, lucky guy! Then it was back to bed!

I do more of armchair visits to fascinating places around the world, even venture deep into the forests, hunt with the lions and run with the hunted, yet manage to stay alive - siva

It is not everyone who can appreciate a song, and yet associating with this elite people who entertain without limits could bring big trouble.
We have to strain the chaff to have good food.
I envy your armchair, it has been all over the world...is it feeling old?
Long time Siva, I re examine my role and find I have broken my leg. Maybe I am should think and write.
Thanks for the comment. Hope your garden is full of bloom again.

You will love it...if you like the heat. India is hot except in winters and on the hill stations. Goa and Jaipur are hot.

I do write about travel but I do not travel that much. Yes, travel does take the sting out of living Sherri, especially when you are stalking ghosts.

It is very difficult to say that when you are two feet away from this beautiful and powerful animal...even if bars separate the two of you.
