The Lottery

Today I read a very disturbing article about the conscience this had a story called " The Lottery " . In this was a village scene in which all the people of the village came to the lottery there was a 77 year old man who had never missed the lottery, it was a group of normal and cheerful people who had come for the lottery .The names of all the people of the village were put in by the heads of the family and then the lottery was drawn, but when it was drawn the person who got the lottery was very terrified and told the drawer to try again, but all the other people of the village wanted blood, the lottery was for stoning the person to DEATH, the author of the story told in the end of the story, that all wanted to get it over and done with so that they all can go back home for lunch, it was shocking but as I went on reading there are many instances in our normal life that also make us do these things - maybe not as hineous.... but nonwe the less bad, what about dowry deaths.... what about sati.... what about ragging..

that is food for though... please pen yuor views

a few days of holidays

A few days back Goles downloaded a lovely animated cursor and it looks good but I still have to get used to it.

The kids had holidays for a few days and as a result we had a weekend of four days sat, sun, mon, tue

We had gone to Hdwar for the same number of days and had fun there. We reached on Friday there the house was naturally entered after about 6 month after dinner in “Le Grand” (don’t get taken by the name the food there sucks) I got down to cleaning the house which was effectively done in the next few days but the things were ready.
The next morning we were busy with further cleaning, that day we had also gone to a fun park called “ the crystal park and had fun there too we spend the entire afternoon there, then later to the house of Gupta aunty. The funny part was that Partha, Goles and me had to spent 200 bucks per ticket, but Mummy and Kukku had children’s ticket costing 150 bucks!!!!, there is a lovely aqua park there but sadly both the kids were having cold we will go there in the month of May.

On Sunday we went for visit to all the houses which was good we got to see our neighbor’s son in law who is very handsome and lucky to have a girl like Meetu for a wife, Dantre uncle had also bought a new car the I10 but I naturally prefer out swift and more than that my cute Marti 800.

On Monday, we had fast “Neel Shashti” and later in the evening we had gone to Richa’s house.

On Tuesday started for home and came back there by 10:15 in the morning
