Tata, Sky?

The first thing I do when I get up every morning is to open the sliding windows of my living room and take in the breathtaking view of the sea. This Sunday as I lazily swiveled my head my eyes brushed over the tree tops and came to a jarring halt on two discs staring at me.

I was transported back to early childhood when, thanks to a soccer world cup, the television set finally entered our living room. My life changed and has never ever been the same again. With Chitrahaar came the perennial running up to the roof and tweaking the multi-spoke antenna. Arre, ektu edike ghora..bas bas..na na abar snow aasche..ulto dike ghora.

Every rooftop had number of these objects and soon the sky was trapped in a mesh of wires and aluminum rods. Which soon got covered with pigeon shit and other such allied substances.I was the happiest when the cable man made his appearance. The antennas disappeared and though there where thick cables strung across, the sky was blue again.

I am dreading the thought that DTH will win and we will be left with a saucerful of sky to look at.

bhalo....food for thought. for most of us who cannot see the sky or the sea, it really doesn't matter :-) I have realized that w/out cable, my life is quite at peace. The two people who miss the routine are my 7 year old son (no cartoons) and our maid (misses some of the soaps which are her only break from daily drudgery). I will get DTH soon for their sake and before my son becomes a FTV junkie!

It can increase hair growth and prevent further hairloss. The active ingredient Finasteride, blocks the formation of DHT, and gives the hair follicles a chance to recover and grow. Viagra is the medicine that is recommended by doctors worldwide for erectile dysfunction. It is the chemical composition of both forms of this drug and helps to cause erection on stimulation of the penis by inhibiting the enzyme phosphodiesterase type 5 which causes smooth muscle relaxation and a better erection.
