Of Sleep and Bandh

Its been a while since I had my quota of sleep. And with nothing much to do and thanks to the long weekend, I caught up on my lost sleep. With the carnatic season around, was able to listen to Sanjay Subramaniam at the NMRKV college on Saturday and T.M.Krishna on Sunday at the Odakathur Mutt. Sanjay gave a stunning performance and kept the audience spell bound for more than a couple of hours. I liked his on stage mannerism :-) His facial expressions, hand movements and some times, the abhinayam, are an intergral part of the show.

And today was the bandh. I have no idea what was achieved by a complete shutdown. Productivity and money lost. With the goverment's decision on appealing against the tribunal still pending, this was a waste. I remember reading that in Japan, instead of shutting down for a strike, they increase their productivity by working over time. This causes a planning nightmare for the management and they look into the employees concern immediately. Win-Win for both. Can't we guys learn from this?

Looks like my wish of having processions outside the city limits might come true. The government seems to be planning on implementing a legislation for holding meetings and rallies outside the city limits. :-)
