I am disillusioned with what I am doing. I get the feeling I am like a secretary, but paid more. All the plump and visible assignments go to my boss' other minion and I am stuck with work that has high volume but low visibility. I feel nihilistic about this place. Maybe that's why the employee turnover of this place is very high.

This morning, my flatmate took all the change I had kept on the shelf, put it in his pocket and walked away!

Traffic Alert?

The depression conditions over Santa Cruz area are much less than the severe depressions and cyclones forming in the Bay of Bengal. Even when there were cyclone alerts in Chennai - with conditions of 85+kmph gales and 110+kmph squalls, the only alert I remember receiving were those warning fishermen not to venture in to the sea and evacuation of people from low lying areas (mostly slums) to higher ground. Now, they have issued a 'traffic alert' in Mumbai. But, I don't see moving of people to nearby schools!
