It’s only April and guess what the temperature in Kolkata is today? 36 degrees! And it is supposed to get hotter and more humid with each passing day. The AC in my bedroom has conked off and I’ve woken up all sweaty and irritated. It is a Sunday and my first instinct is to go back to sleep but it is already 7 a.m. and I have a jam packed day ahead.
For most people, Sunday is a day to relax but for a blogger who also has a day job, Saturdays and Sundays are extremely busy. I schedule my meetings, appointments, catching up with family and friends, watching movies, running errands etc on weekends so sleeping till late is a luxury that I can rarely afford. I get up, have breakfast, take a bath, get ready and by 8.30, I am out of the door.
Today’s agenda – Meeting a friend from Delhi who wanted to see some of North Kolkata’s iconic landmarks. As I stand on the road, waiting for my cab, I realize what a huge mistake I’ve made.
