One of the poems performed at the show
“Love in a Bathtub” by Sujata Bhatt
Years later we’ll remember the bathtub
the position of taps
the water, slippery
as if a bucketful of eels had joined us…
we’ll be old, our children grown up
but we’ll remember water sloshing
the useless soap,
the mountain of wet towels.
‘Remember the bathtub in Belfast?’
we’ll prod each other-

Uber ride to IIHS


After working with a Non profit organisation for a year in New Delhi, I then moved back to Punjab in May this year. I applied for the Urban fellowship and was not really sure if I’ll make through. And it happened. I got my confirmation email and I was all set for another year in Bangalore.

Here in Bangalore, I live with other 14 fellows, in Men’s PG in Sanjaynagar. However, the classes happen at IIHS, Bangalore city campus which is located in Sadashiv nagar. A distance of odd 5 kms, which I daily cover majorly using Uber, auto rickshaw at times and bicycle when fellows have brought cycles back in PG but are not ready to take them back to IIHS.

Usually when I’m travelling on Uber with fellows, we tend to take UberGo(a car that accomodates only 4 people). Sometimes there are 6 of us who have to travel together. And we book UberXL. I shot this video on one of those days, when we booked UberXL and I had to sit in the trunk of the car because of less space.

Travelling is one of those times in the day, when I’m just observing. Usually there is no lens through which I tend to see things around. Traffic of vehicles, people, buildings, birds & animals just passing by.

I’ve been listening to Tajdar Junaid alot these days as well. The background score is called Yaadon ki Pari. Do let me know how do you like this one.

Peace
