When you are working 6 days a week, your definition of weekend changes. Looks like, Sunday is accidentally dropped in between 2 working days. By the time you decide and plan what to do, the eve of Monday is already waving at you.
Having cribbed about this phenomena, for quite sometime, I decided to handle it slightly better, this time.
Guess, all it takes is to have a pre-planned Sunday.
This is how my first trial went by….
I had a book to finish. Wanted to catch up with the media coverage on India Gandhi (31st Oct marked her Martyrdom). Experiment with Twirl was on agenda. Sorting out of brochures collected in a conference 2 weeks back was a long pending task.
Started off with my most favourite…the book!
The first half of the day was taken up by Stephen Hawkins “Theory of Everything. From Aristotle’s Principles to Friedman's Models, in almost half a day, it was like to travel to the space and back.
Now to catch up with the Indira Legacy, I had to wait for the channels to oblige. Meanwhile, experimented with Twirl, did the usual mail checking, social networking and some quick digital journey on my favourite subjects.
Sorting of brochures was still pending. But no issues, half a day more to go..
The best part of a planned Sunday, is that, even some unplanned musings manage to find their way without hampering the planned schedule. For instance, book shelves and apparel wardrobes need regular touch ups. This Sunday they got their dues. More than 150 pics, waiting to get uploaded on the standalone, smoothly managed to do that.
While these small wonders were getting done, it was almost evening.
CNN IBN, NDTV, DD News all three had their exclusive coverage. Must say, this time, Barkha Dutt scored over Sagarika Ghose. Yes, I m saying this, despite my favoritism towards the latter. Neelam Sharma was at her best, or probably, the national language in her show makes a difference. Nevertheless 3 channels, 3 shows on Indira Gandhi’s journey, a good treat to end a Sunday.
A Sunday, that was a bit too planned, a bit too well executed. Well….miracles happen!
