Not having access to the internet/ television / telephone these last few days (peaceful and painful at once!) gave me an opportunity to reflect upon several memories. Often, it felt as if days stretched on endlessly and time stood still. Made me reminisce about an incident in Ahmedabad, India when I battled insane traffic to reach an art exhibition only to be stopped by a lazy herd of cows who had decided to settle down in the middle of the street for their afternoon siesta. No amount of cajoling would tempt the holy animals away from their space and everything around came to a grinding halt. Once again, time stood still.
