I happened to notice some interesting behaviour in crows today morning. Amma had laid out a few slices of bread for crows to eat and this is what both of us saw.

One crow swooped down, nibbled at a few pieces of the bread and jumped down to drink from a pool of water that had stagnated on the floor of the terrace. Once this crow left, a second one came down and repeated what the first crow had done. As soon as the second crow departed, a third one came by. He just picked up the slice and flew away. Brilliant. Looks like the crow which dropped pebbles into a pot to bring the water level up has some serious competition.

I really think you resemble your userpic (the one that looks like you :P). Being in Amazon I expected you to be there. Too bad we did not wait till deponti came along.

Deponti had trouble finding the way and made it only at about 9 PM... you stay in Hosur right? How long did it take for you to travel?

I moved to Bangalore 6 months back. I go back to Hosur for weekends. It took us almost an hour from Domlur and back.
