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. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! 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 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(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). 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 was wondering what the person sitting across from the empty might have stories to tell.
        It reminded me how Monet painted an empty chair in some of his paintings. No one really know the stories behind, but some think it probably reflected his absence…

      • What a beautiful thought! Thank you for sharing it with me Amy. And it is almost eerie that you mentioned Monet, there’s an exhibition of his works in Basel that I’m planning to attend! What a coincidence,

      • Yes, I managed to visit between endless meetings and dinners….it was an experience like no other! Unfortunately I wasn’t allowed to take my camera inside, but they did let a colleague’s small point and shoot in. I got some shots but not good ones, sadly.
