Poison

I took my mother's car to work today and suddenly discovered that I had an old CD lying about in her car - Absolute Rock Ballads from 1999! So I travelled the entire way, including the insane traffic jam through GK thanks to Shiela aunty, listening to songs I had not heard in years. Poison, Extreme, Queen - this was like a bad retro festival. But strangely enough, it felt nice. Like comfort music, even.
About the BJP ban on CNN-IBN I happened to meet the closest thing that channel has to a chaddiwallah (who happens to be a close friend) at another friend's birthday party last night. He believes that the channel and the BJP will kiss and make up soon enough. Once Arun Jaitley calms down a bit. Surprisingly, Jaitley has been in a vicious mood of late. But, I am not that optimistic, while personal relationships in certain cases go beyond the channel, there are politicians in this country who nuture grudges. At least two people have told me that Raghav should pray that the NDA doesn't come into power in 2009.
