Here at last!

The wait is over and am finally in Bangalore. Finally. Travel was fairly uneventful, as far as bumpy 4 hour flights go though was surprised to be met with a huge wall of people in the immigration hall. Things went fairly smoothly apart from the fact that there was a slight sense of overcrowding in all the halls in the airport. Met with Manoj (my supervisor and person I’ll be working with on the project) without much difficulty even in the crowd and was swiftly whisked to the Indus International School.

Was most pleasantly surprised to see the room that was assigned to me – it’s not only huge but comes with a TV (!) and an attached bathroom to boot. Seems that I’ve got the last word in comfort here and will not want for anything here. Only problem is my initial lack of means of communication – the mobile phone doesn’t seem to want to connect to any particular network here and the laptop’s not quite connected to the internet yet (I’m writing this on Saturday morning, 16th Feb) but guess the fact that you’re reading this post means that I’ve been connected to the rest of the world! More on the school and where I am on subsequent posts.

One thing I’ve realised – though there’s much to be said about the world getting smaller with improved communications and the like, this too leads to a certain amount of unwanted anxiety. Anxiety you may ask? The fact that normally, we can communicate with each other with the click of a mouse or push of a button, we get a little anxious when we can’t do that. The expectations of people waiting for one to call or message back can make one a little more anxious to get some form of communication up so that they won’t worry.

Other than that, looking forward to a day of getting stuff done and getting ready to start work on the programme. Sun’s out – time to get out of the room, as nice as it seems.

    Getting the photos done soon. The room’s a cross between a single room and a small studio so there’s a fair amount of space. Have the normal cable TV fare – though horror of horrors – Discovery is not working! But somehow, I’ll live. 🙂
