My last few days have not been very bright!
Yesterday, I went to Chandani Chowk (with Rajan who had to buy Lehenga for his fiancee). I took my contact lenses from my pet shop (which I had given for cleaning).
I successfully resisted the attempt to buy another frame (I always buy glasses from Ballimaran which has wholesale rates; A frame that costs 1500 to 2000 Rupees in South Delhi costs about 300 Rupees here while plastic glasses of high power like mine cost about 200 Rupees without the anti-glare feature! My pet shop is Sun Shine Optical (Mr. Shaakir), 2395 , Chasma Building, Ballimaran, New Delhi-06; Ph: 9811587833, 011-23933458; I always recommend my friends to visit Ballimaran/this shop for glasses; Nearest metro station is Chhawri Bazaar. I also suggest my friends to shop from Vishal Megamart, Big Bazaar, Kendriya Bhandar etc. to save money and for a more enjoyable shopping experience).
I also resisted the temptation to buy/eat cakes from a good bakery shop near the aforesaid shop! I bought a weighing scale from Chhawri Bazaar in 350 Rupees, the wholesale market for hardware. I have discovered that I am 65 kgs without my heavy woodland sandal and the coat! That’s some relief. I also bought some stationery (a bundle of envelopes, markers, pens, refills) from Nai Sarak, the wholesale market for books and stationery). I did not take lunch yesterday; I bought some oranges and a litre of mango juice while returning from the Safal shop in campus.
I clicked some pictures of Dariyaganj and adjoining areas from the car (Rajan had hired a full day taxi). Rajan boarded his Rajdhani for Patna at about 5 PM; I came back to hostel denying the idea of visiting Nehru Place or Sarojini Nagar.
I am regularly reading three pages of the dictionary and speaking for some ten minutes daily (as a buoyancy aid to my gift of the gab).
Unfortunately, I slept late and woke up at 7.30 AM only to discover that I am shivering because the quilt and blankets were out of sync! I slept again and woke up at 10.30 AM! This is just not acceptable to me. I will go to bed by 11 PM today, come what may. I have installed a bed switch yesterday so that I fall asleep while studying.
I am going for lunch now after which I will make my to-do list for today. I have to run for some 4 kms today and then do some strength training too.
P.S.: The chairperson of my centre recently scolded me for an English error. I wrote PH.D. (instead of Ph.D.) on the registration folios! This is one reason I would always want to be scolded for. I have to improve my English especially when I aspire to be a writer/thinker/somebody. Please bring English errors on this blog to my notice.
