Mahatma Phule and Savitribai Phule

If you live in India, you must recognize this couple at a glance (and if you don’t, you should take a brick and split it on your head!  You deserve it).

Of an eclipse and the moon…

December 10, 2011

It’s a full moon day and we are having a total lunar eclipse this evening.  I noticed the little-less-than-full moon while coming back from office.  I knew about the eclipse, but somehow I thought it would not be visible from India.  So when I saw the moon little less, I thought it must be the 14th day of the month!  But the moon got a little more less.. yes, it was an eclipse!!

The lunar eclipse this eveningIt feels so wonderful to feel that you are watching the same moon that your beloved ones are too.  Kailash called me to tell he is watching the eclipse.  Mayur tweeted he is watching it too!

Don’t know if it was a dream!  We were on a long ride, talking, as usual, of some strangely odd topic (for example, how Mahatma Phule and Savitribai Phule (19th century) adopted an illegitimate son of a young widow) shivering with the December breeze, in a warm hug, and you screamed:  “Look at the moon, it’s wonderful” 🙂

Oh!  It’s December 10, 2011, Saturday night, and I am typing this post, sitting alone at my desktop!
