Donating Accessories

One of my colleague today had an idea for Eye Donation. (Remember that ad of Aishwarya Rai in which she asked to donate your eyes after your death, so that someone can see the world from your eyes? Ye ankhen hai duniya ki sabse khubsurat aankhen! that one.) So I accompanied the colleague to one of the Eye Hospital. The lady at reception made her fill up some form and asked me if I also wanted to donate my eyes.

I asked, "Do I need to donate my spectacles also if I donate my eyes?"

I didn't get the form.

Wednesday On toh Mobile Off

After trying for a day, now its final. Every Week, Wednesday On toh Mobile Off !
When you got admitted to hospital for few days, and have nothing else to do other than watch glucose entering your body drop by drop from bottles and think over on some weird ideas. The situation gets more interesting by the fact that each drop takes 6 seconds to enter your body and one bottle is full of 4200 drops.

One of the weird ideas to be implemented was to reduce the amount of time you spend with your mobile. Now see, the mobile is with us 24 hours by 7. In the morning it wakes you up, reminds you your important dates, put you through voices and messages important to you(with some exception of credit cards and personal loan voices!). For some lucky people their company bars the use of mobile phone inside the office premises. But otherwise its always with you.

No more now. In the effort to reduce my friendship with my mobile, one day of the week is dedicated to "No-mobile-today-no-matters-what". And the day is Wednesday. And if it will permit, the other days of the week can also join with Wednesday !
