Just add broadband internet….

I clicked so many places where I could just imagine settling down and living in. I’ve been a city-dweller all my life (even if Chandigarh is one of the few cities in India with adequate lungs). Roughing it would mean an hour-long power failure in a storm, or a weak water supply. I realize that means I idealize living in the outdoors, or even out in the country. But seriously, who wouldn’t want to live in these bits of heaven?



Or even in whatever this is?





About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. I was, and am suffering from depression and things had gotten out of control. I had chronicled it in my posts, but I have removed them. Not because I wanted to hide that facet of my life; if that were the case, I wouldn't be writing this. But I was lucky to come across many, many wonderful people out here who helped me. Even if it was just to post and tell me I wasn't alone. I can't tell you how thankful I am for all of you. I've tried since, to tell my own story as an attempt at catharsis (didn't work) and as a means of telling others that they weren't alone either, not in their depression, nor in their cutting or burning, nor in their thoughts of and attempts at suicide. So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost dark self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on. I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice. I am a depressive, have been for some time, so some things do trigger me for no rhyme or reason; I don't expect anyone to understand that this happens, just maybe accept that it does. If not, I am sorry.

  2. As long as it is quiet. Finding a quiet location is the hardest …. Beautiful locations and a bit puzzling on the last one. 🙂 ❤

  5. Build it and the internet will come. We rough it round here with only rainwater and went 2 years with only our mobile phones for internet via tethering. All the other stuff more than makes up for it, plus I did my brain a favour with 2 years of minimal mindless crap viewed on youtube as I had to be thrifty with my data use. Beautiful places in those pics!
