Republic Day

Once upon a time, in a land far far away, there were thousands of kingdoms between three mighty rivers. Anyone who did not pledge allegience to the king was deemed a traitor and tortured. One fine day, an ogre took up the whole pie for himself and called it her precious. Anyone who did not recognize the King was sent to the blackwaters. Some became terrorists; later on they were called freedom fighters. Later a prince with little clothes came and liberated her. The evil step-mother was thrown out of the country and another prince with a different name married her. Now, anyone who did not respect this prince were said to be traitors and they all lived happily ever after. The people who called them traitors were among the 22000 fools watching 22 fools. Moreover, they did not anything about the princess or the princes.
Moral of the story: Every man for himself

One week of R&R at hometown and with parents. I thought this time my flights/trains would be on time, and I would not get a seat directly over the engine, but there are some things you can just wish for. The only time when they allow you to sleep in till noon, bring you coffee in bed, and make your favourite dishes everyday is when you go home for vacations. Also found out that my crashed computer healed itself miraculously and I took some of my favourite stuff back home. Ten whole days without computer was not that tough, or bad!
