Ramoji Film City and Brrrrraaaaiiiiinnnnnsss

On Monday, we had a holiday, and I visited Ramoji Film City with a colleague from Mumbai. It was OK, but many steps below La Ronde in Montreal.

Yesterday, we ordered fried mutton brains for dinner. Yummmmy! I guess that makes me a zombie :)

Visa Extension Work Done

Just a quick update...

It took me 1.5 days to get this done, but it is done...
On Wednesday, I had to rush to the office to get a document from HR, then rush back to the Foreigners' Registration Office (FRO) to get the forms. Then off to pay the challan for the fee (they take cash only, and there is no ATM near by) and then finally get all my documents attested (I didn't have enough cash... the ATM nearby was not working and the nearest ATM was 15 minutes of walk away...) I was back home tiiiiired. I went to bed at 19:30.
On Thursday, I went to the FRO early, I got the gentle welcome of the frontline officer who looks like he doesn't like his job. Then go inside to stab all my documents so that I can tie them in a nice little bundle. Then come back, give the bundle and start waiting.

Now, I have a piece of paper that says that my stuff is in process. Yay.

Men Getting Dumber Around Good-Looking Women

Now its scientifically proven, men don't perform cognitive tasks as well after chatting with a pretty woman.
Of course, everybody already knew that. The interesting part is that the result is not symmetric: women are not affected by men's good look.

That's why the Bible teaches women to be modest (1 Peter 3:1-4, 1 Ti 2:9), but never told the same about men. God isn't sexist, he's just accurate!
