All-nighters – a somewhat cryptic post

with 2 comments

Staying up all night – whether to finish a project that I should have been working on for the past three months, or just to hang out and discuss deep philosophy with friends over booze and food (when I should have been working on the project)- used to be much easier when the body was 10 years younger. The day after, the body could still be coaxed to drag itself and the mind made alert enough to get through Electrical Engineering lab (conducted,btw, by the most sadistic group of professors known in human existense).

As for now – no sleep and 9 hours of driving to and from Washington DC over the last sixteen hours or so equals a very tired body and a sleepy mind, that can hardly think or type straight.

On the flipside: there is enough kaju barfi, ‘kora-pak sondesh’ (sorry to non-Bong/non-Kolkatan/non-Indian folks – no links or description would do justice to this delicacy that gives you a taste of heaven – specially when you are having it after a whole year) and sohanpapdis to gorge myself sick over the next couple of days(at least).

PS – quality of the sweets I have my hands on are so much better than anything you will see on clicking those links.

  1. Hi,

    I just wish to inform you that a supari has been given for your life. Dawood and his cronies are on your tail…

    What crime you ask?

    Firstly, you talked about Kaju barfi, told us how good it was and if that was not enough linked to its picture too!

    You nincoomp! How dare you that? How dare you remind me of how Kaju barfi tastes? Damn..I miss it..

    Anyways, the only redemption for you is to ship me 1 kg(to hell with pounds) Kaju barfi ASAP, and yes by Fedex…dare you be cheap.

    Otherwise, there is no escape. Dawood is on his way…

    angry, nostalgic and salivating

  2. Confused: I am not worried – I can bribe my would-be assaisin with them barfis 🙂

    Kaju barfis are actually quite easy to get at most Indian gorcery stores in the US – also helps if you live near NY/LA/Bay area. I am not sure if you have had ‘kora-paak sondesh’ though – now those are not easily available here and are really worth dying for !
