Hari Kumbhaara.....

A: How is it going on with Hari Kumbhaara?



Me: Hallelujah .... finished it in the wee hours of morning ! It is good compared to the previous one. Sakkath witty stuff... !



It was an experience of a kind - going at around half-past-ten to find a long queue snaking through the road and then more around the corner, waiting till mid-night, moving quickly with the crowd (except for the chill in the air.....brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr....., the queue did not matter much), wading through the shop decked up with promotional frills and fancies..... and finally the much awaited moment arrived - Hari Kumbhaara was esconed safely in my hands.



Still at a fog? ;-)


Hmmmmm.....these should help .... :-)!


..................................Serpentine queue......


.................................The magical orb :-)


..................................Check this out....


If not anything, this should be a dead-giveaway as to what I am alluding to... :-)
