19-March-2008: Painted sign near Secunderabad station, "Entrance shifted to backside."
3 new albums + sundry other songs find their place in the iPod.
Hazaaron Khwaishien Aisi - for baavra mann (the qawwali version, and the woman singing version)
Metro - for the non-remixed songs, all of them
Phir Teri Kahaani Yaad Aayi - for old times sake, and for tere dar pe sanam and aane waala pal
Sundry - Mehdi Hasan (ek bas tuu hii nahin, Farhat Shahzad), Steely Dan (Reelin' In The Years), Simon & Garfunkel (Dangling Conversations - we're told it's bad form to reveal that you like this song, but WTF), Kalyug (tujhe dekh dekh hasna)
Among the things deleted to make way for all this, Def Leppard (Vault - everything except 'Pour Some Sugar On Me' and 'Let's Get Rocked')
1. Higginbothams and Book Point on Mount Road, Madras do not have poetry sections.
2. 4 bookshops in Madras don't have what is more or less considered to be a landmark in modern Tamil literature, neither in the original, nor in translation.
Ominous coffee mug in Landmark, seen just before a reasonably important meeting:
