in memory of the flames I baited

mumbai mayhem

The people in Mumbai have been through a lot of problems in the last two days — This city is one of the most prepared in the world for lots-of-rain situations; and the preparedness is not just in the infrastructure, it’s deeply engraved in the mindset of every true Mumbaikar. I’m pretty confident they’ll champion this and show everyone what amchi mumbai is all about.

update: Minutes after I post this, I read Shantanu’s post, whose ending says it all:

The BSE Sensex crossed 7600 today. It was open today, because, apparently, no one went home yesterday.

waterproof mobile strategy

In the last month, 4 people I know have martyred their cellular phones by either washing them with their clothes, leaving them out in the rain, or just plain dipping them in a bucket of water. No, I don’t know why the phone was dipped in the said bucket.

Maybe it is time to standardize on waterproof communications electronics. Or considering that all four people went on to buy new, more expensive phones for replacement; maybe this is exactly why our phones are so water friendly?
