Unlikely links

This graffiti was a mystery to me when I clicked it, I thought it might be a personal tribute of some sort. That was, until I googled the date and “cycling”; this was the anniversary of the day Albert Hoffman discovered the full effects of LSD, while cycling (hence known as Bicycle Day) in, of all places, Basel. The one place outside India that I have come to know quite personally (though I doubt I will ever go there again). Thrice I’ve been there but no one has ever told me this little nugget of Basler history.

I’m not sure what the lady with the sitar has t do with all this, but far out, man! 😀


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.
