In Chennai, till a few years ago we had The Park , meaning the Park Sheraton ( vis a vis Chola Sheraton- known as Chola) Once the new hotel by name The Park came up, it led to a lot of confusion in terms of destination and the direction since both are landmarks.
To add to this,Park Sheraton is often referred to by old timers as the Adyar Gate Hotel
In India if you are a woman with short hair, they automatically think you are a rebel, very progressive ( read feminist) , etc. I wonder why? What does the length of your hair have anything to do with it? It is a matter of convenience and the weather and maybe an inclination for fashion max max.
Why is it that each time the elections are around, we get these quick over night lays- i mean of roads? They are shoddily done.You will see that they leave a one foot dust patch on either side of the new road. The contractor obviously is either in a hurry, short of materials or both.
Also if you recollect this post, I have another To add there:
The Reluctant Gymmer
Forced out of home EARLY each morning by a mother / sister or spouse who is concerned about you health/ girth or both. Why do u need enemies when you dearest ones are like that. Rationally they have the edge over you. Emotionally well they get you there as well. SO you go out of bed and get to the gym each morning unfailingly.
