The Lunch Date.


Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea culpa.

No, I am not a Roman Catholic.  Nor is my friend.   This is just me showing off to Grannymar that I have not forgotten my catechism lessons.

After my post I Am Devastated, it is only fair that I keep my readers informed on what happened to THE lunch date.

The lunch date was set for earlier today and both the parties involved were eagerly looking forward to it.   I had even located an exotic new place to go to but the Universe decided that we had to wait for some more time. I was dragged screaming and kicking into a domestic problem matter which could only be resolved through my good offices and so I had to beg off the date on the assurance that it will be set up again shortly.

I am however preoccupied with another family matter till the 30th of July and so it will have to be some time in August that it will now take place. I will keep my readers posted.

The preoccupation will also mean that I will be away from the blog world till the end of the month after I post this week’s LBC post tomorrow. Till then here is wishing all my readers a happy respite from my bombardments.



It is widely accepted in India that fasting is good for one’s physical and spiritual health. Medical research has also found a great deal of evidence to support this view.

Hindus normally fast one day every week besides keeping fasts on various other religiously significant days. That Muslim fast during the month of Ramzan is too well known for any special mention.

Christians and Jews too are expected to fast as the link for Ramzan shows and as Roman Catholics in India do during Lent every year. Non RC Christians may be keeping too, but I do not know of any.

I have never voluntarily kept a fast. I do not know whether I will be able to.

Having read this interesting article however, I am contemplating keeping fast for one day a week to see what happens. I shall consult some experienced fast keepers and decide during the course of this coming week.

Writing this post reminded me of another post that I had written some months ago and I went back to it. I am now quite determined to try the experiment.
