The news is that I have quit my present job (don’t say not again!) and am taking (a well deserved) break at home in Shillong. The national news media didn’t inform me, but this part of the country is displeased with the plenty that the rain gods had to offer. Large parts of Assam is underwater and even Shillong (a hill station) witnessed flodding.
Landslides accompany the rains and take away the life and property down the hill. The Guwahati-Shillong highway (National Highway 40) is in a mess. The skies are perpetually overcast but the mood is upbeat. Because of a TV talent show called Indian Idol, now in its third season. Interesting experiences here, will post the details later.
