Steps and seat….

April 9, 2012


What scenes have these steps seen?
Who are the people who’ve sat upon that seat?
How many have rested their backs there?
On the steps, how many feet?

How many suns have cast their light
Upon the steps and the seat?
How many misty winter mornings?
How much of summer heat?

How many quarrels or scoldings?
How many newspapers unfurled?
How many people have used seat and steps
To get away for a while from the world?

Amazing! Someone has something nice to say about a Microsoft product!

I found Vista slowing down my laptop so much, I had Chandan and anushsh take it out and install XP for me…ah, well, I missed a chance to be a dictator (or, to be precise, a dictatrix.)

My laptop is getting repaired in small stages, looks like….Chandan has again taken it home as the CD drive command didn’t work, nor did a couple of other things.

I cannot feel it is a coincidence that I run my laptop with NO problems (except Kak worm which I remmoved myself with directions from the Net) until I download AVG Grisoft dot com, and just a day later a virus wipes out my laptop….it is so painful until I get it all back. Luckily back-ups are there….

It is SO nice that Chandan is devoting this time patiently to the re-incarnation of the Toshiba!

Meanwhile, KM has graciously left the Fujitsu behind and here I am,tapping away.
