Well when you're sittin back, in your rose pink Cadillac Making bets on Kentucky Derby Day, I'll be in my basement room, with a needle and a spoon. And another girl to take my pain away -Jagger/Richards

What a city

Yesterday I was witness to Bombay's finest hour, in probably its darkest. The more one pushes it to the edge, the harder it bounces back.

And today was the first day in the last 16 months of my stay in Bombay, when I was absolutely joyous to see my first class compartment packed to capacity.

What a day!!

Today is a very very sad day. I am stuck in my office as Bombay is rocked. And to make matters even worse, we get the news of Syd Barrett's demise.

But one has to give it to the people of this city. Today I saw it with my own eyes how average citizen of this city came all out to help absolute strangers. Today I saw that famed resilience of Bombayites. Absolutely beyond words. This is Bombay for you.

Three fantastic albums I revisited

1. Wolf Parade- Apologies to the Queen Mary
Awesome.. awesome.. album. They remind me of Modest Mouse ( Isaac Brock is the producer).

2. Stereolab- Dots & Loops

3. Silver Jews- American Water
Another brilliant album. Malkmus' presence did not hurt either.

It has been pouring again in Bombay. I have been confined to my apartment for the last four days now. All I have been doing is listening to music and watching TV. Four days of virtually non-stop music. I have gone back to albums I have not heard in months. And one man I have been listening to like crazy- Prince.

I had always loved Prince's music. His music along with few other bands' is what saves 1980s from musical oblivion. Albums like Purple Rain, Sign O The Times, 1999, LoveSexy can stand up to probably anything any other decade has to offer.

Yeah! And 'Computer Blue' probably fits the scene perfectly now.
