Rain rain come again
Today was a wet rainy day. It had rained all night.
Morning came, and wow!!! I was in Vienna. There is water all around our building.
I stay on the ground floor but our architect /builder (more than 70 years ago) had foreseen water logging on our road. The ground floor is at a height of about 6 feet from the road level. Think of planning and proactivity.
It was wonderful!!! The road was less noisy with only a few BEST buses passing by (all other traffic having stopped). When the bus came the waves also come in. The pleasant breeze was enjoyable too.
Suddenly I remembered that I had a training program to go for. Now I wanted the water to go away. Unfortunately it didn't.
I called up the client and spoke to them. They were accomodating. Raghunath (HR) told me it was fine and to take a call. At about 10 am, water disappeared, called up the client and they said we could still start the session at about 11.30 a.m. So off I was.
Again at about 4 p.m. there was a scare and we had to close the session early. Raghunath arranged for me to be dropped at Bandra by the Co. bus. I was home by 6.30 p.m
It was an eventful fun & enjoyable day.
