Chai-tai, and crane-load of work

That headache that tends to get you when you work non-stop. And then an unexpected call that invites you for a much-needed afternoon walk. The setting sun that warms you just a little bit. And friends-in-conversation who warm you a lot more. Lotus-seeds fried lightly, with tulsi and herb tea. The room was warm, chair cosy. Fiercely attacked another set of articles to make sense of them, and the second bout of headache proved that the system needs to retire . . . private pursuit of sense-making re-public-d on a day when social media news-feed gets furiously patriotic.
