March 19. Bhubaneswar.
We arrive in Bhubaneswar in the evening, and have some trouble getting to the guest house we have so cautiously looked up in the tourist guide. When a persistent rikshaw driver follows us too long, I step right in front of him and look him in the eyes, silently. Natural alpha-male behavior, and it makes ...

March 17. Meditating?
Early morning I hike up the mountain. It takes me about ninety minutes from the backside of the temple complex to the peak of the sacred mountain. I walk up fast, carrying only one bottle of water I pick up at a stall adjacent to the temple. I offer this water to a local, but ...

Our driver has been sleeping in the car although we have told him to come on the roof and make himself feel at home. We just ask him to take us back to Tiruvannamalai, there are no complications. We haven't talked much to the Dutch owner of our guesthouse and his great dam project in ...

March 10. Hard wood.
We buy hard wood. It is expensive and they don't cut it right. But I don't give up and promise to manufacture the table, somehow. We have promised to make a set of tables for the children so that they can study in a more organized fashion. Currently they just take their schoolbooks and stationary ...

March 8. Bangalore Monoculture.
In Bangelore we don't do so much. We take an autorickshaw to the Mall, the quintessence of modern India. We need to go to a Mall to find an internet connection, to connect ourselves with the usual, the global vilifying monoculture. We frown upon ourselves, it looks very funny in the mirror. The Mall does ...
