At the Eiffel Tower

My first glimpse of the icon of Paris, all of France really. Google Maps was of immense help in getting me there, guiding me every step of the way.

The day was cloudy and promised rain (which it duly delivered), but the soaring steel still had its charm.

“Man’s finger pointed at god.” I’m not a religious person, but I wonder if no one thought of this caption for the tower?

The fencing you see at the bottom has been put up recently (I was told), after the recent terror attacks in Paris. The security is necessary, I imagine, but these do distract from the beauty of the place,

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.
