Independence Day!

Okay, I'm in Calcutta, primarily because someone really close to me is admitted in a hospital and the Doctors used the words 'biopsy' and 'cancer' in the same sentence a couple of times, and as my only experience with the word 'cancer' has come through movies, where in the best case scenario it's used as a plot device to kill off important characters and 'motivate' the protagonist, I can clearly state that the last few days have been daunting. Well thankfully the biopsy results were negative for cancerous growth so now I can just curse the doctors and get some sleep. :)

I'll leave you with what I ran into on my way to Calcutta when I got off at some random railway station (you know, the ones that have like one platform and look like a crime-scene) to look for something to eat: 

Sorry for the picture quality but it's hard to snap clear pictures when you see a guy with THAT hairstyle in the dead of the night and the middle of nowhere amidst a very VERY conspicuous stench of cannabis. They were probably just praying or something but somehow I couldn't take the words 'Human Sacrifice' out of my head. :)

P.S. This post is probably a little disconnected. Need Sleep.

I hope she's doing better.
I hope you're doing okay too.

In other news, my phone is fucked. SO I'd call you as soon as I get to fix it. Hugg.

@Priyam: She's okay man, it was a precautionary test apparently. It just turns out I'm NOT the best at being a 'pillar of strength'.

@Anonymous: You too. (:

That picture did make me think of some twisted religious sacrifice of some kind.

Hope your mom is doing good.
And you too.
