Bharat Bandh and WFH…

I had to be working from home yesterday, thanks to the Bharat Bandh.. Was the Bandh successful? I dont know.. reducing the hike by Rs1.60 is not that helpful, isn’t it?  I was very unhappy.. I dont know.. All I can say that yesterday was the most boring, frustrating day of all this week. I was forced to work from home (or alternatively reach office before 6Am and come out only after 6Pm) with loads of work to be completed along with a couple of meetings and particularly it had to be only yesterday that my laptop and net connect had to behave weirdly. After struggling to work with a slow speed internet connection for half of the day, I logged off to take some fresh air and to prepare at least one simple meal for our starving stomachs.  What happens when I try to connect back to the network… Speed doesnt reach more than 3Kb per hour (!) I was irritated to the core.. and thus go pull out S from his endless movie watching.. both of us fight with the laptop and tata photon for like 2 hours and I finally give up.. Most of my work remains uncompleted, thanks to the Bharath Bandth!! S was left to deal with a grumpy GB.. a very grumpy one I must admit.

What would be the best way to bring back my spirits.. I had to cook and I made the following 😀

1. Vegetable Biriyani – Amma’s style 

Veg Biriyani… Mommy’s Style

2. Eggless Banana Walnut Muffins

3. Butterscotch Cookies

4. Idiyappam and Veg Kurma

I was also planning to paint something.. just to boost up some more but some other time!
