Getting back to Instagram and #Project365 with a grid experiment, and I'm going to be indulging my cat-lady-ness with a mini series 🐈 . . . . I haven't been to Goa too many times, and those visits were a whirling jumble of the beach + friends, or family functions + rounds of ancestral temples. This time was different... My friends at @thebicycletripgoa say, "When in Goa, keep it slow." And they are so, so right! We stayed away from the hullabaloo, and in the quiet of Panjim's Latin Quarter - Fontainhas...a portal to Portuguese Goa. I have many, many photos to share, but 😺😽😸 always come first! These pictures are from a balmy, drowsy Sunday afternoon, when Amma & I went for a long walk through the lanes of old Fontainhas and encountered some of its feline residents. . . ---- . . (40/365) -- guessing that a photo split * 3 still counts as one photo πŸ˜‹ . . . ---- . . (1/10) -- Cats of Fontainhas 🐱 at Goa, India

(36/365) Dipped into the MICA Holi archives (nostalgia prompted by @megharajeev's post) . . 1. Bagal & Muju waiting outside Shwetima's door in Amaltas 2. Muju prowling around Amaltas waiting for Shwetima, sure of an eventual triumph 3. Do Epic Holi in Parijat 4. Shwetima getting bullied in Parijat 5. Now that the worst is over, Shwetima agrees to come out of the room 6. These two :) 7. The only decorous picture of the Holi-ing on the lawn behind the Mess. The safest place was the terrace! 8. Colours in the Mess :) 9. To anyone who says Hegde is a pokerface, I offer you this. Also, Meera doing nautanki. 10. Multicoloured MICAns . . #MICApture, after years. at MICA

(34/365) . . On the days I am not getting squished, the Ladies' compartment of the Mumbai local is one of my favourite-est places for people watching...My equivalent of those roadside Parisian cafes! I see women praying, reading books, adjusting lipstick with the help of the phone camera, confiding troubles, catching up on serials, giggling with friends, cutting vegetables, cooing sweet nothings into the phone, standing next to the compartment door letting their hair dance in the breeze...doing all the million and one little things that all of us do in our lives everyday...but for a few minutes, together. We are all in this together. . . at Mumbai, Maharashtra

(33/365) . . Sinister spelling, complete with lonely, shadowy street.

(31/365) I love that there are people in this world who draw faces on meter boxes. ☺️ . . . And yaaay, one month done! at Bangalore, India

(30/365) Suddenly, it was pitch dark. As they say in this 'Uru, "the current" had gone. She blithely whipped out her phone, turned on the torch, and continued to bargain.

(29/365) So this plant-keeping is not as glamorous as it looks as when you are standing in the nursery, surrounded by dewy green leaves and fresh flowers, thinking, ''Yes! I can!'' . . Not-so-rosy things I have to do now: 1. Stick my hand into very stinky compost. 2. Stick my hand into the soil of multiple pots to check whether it is damp or dry. 3. Spend my breaks reading about blight, rotting stems, black spots, pests and the various possible causes and treatments (and decode all the contrary theories that Google Search shows me). 4. Cut up used tea bags and remove the damp dregs for 'food'. 5. Deal with considerable emotional baggage (I have now fallen to the deepest depths: I play music to my plants each morning πŸ™„). . . . Mine is just a short row of a few pots...Howww do people manage gardens?

(28/365) . . Dedicated to @poorwaaah. Thank you for the pep talk πŸ€— . . . He continued to focus on deftly piping out a border of icing, despite my niece and me being nosy and noisy. . .

(26/365) Every January 26, since I was a kid, I've been watching DD's telecast of the Republic Day parade - there are some fancy camera angles now but the commentary hasn't changed much! It struck me this year, that though I watch this parade and even get 'emotional' in parts, I am a bit of a fraud...I don't know as much as I should about India. This tome has been sitting on the bookshelf, unread, for such a long time because 'it is so fat and my attention span is so low'. Giving myself the whole year to finish it. Hopefully in December I'll be less of an ignoramus! It is so interesting! Do you know why August 15 was picked as Independence Day?

(25/365) . . I didn't click a photo today, but I did revisit this old illustration by Quentin Blake which always makes me smile!
