Just now I realised that this is my first post in 2009. So Happy New Year guys (for both English and Tamil new year)
It’s hardly a month since New Year eve and I have already faced both sides of life 🙂 . 2009 started with a very high note for me and I was entirely occupied for the first three weeks, both due to work as well as due to hobby. (In fact I even planned to write a post titled Jam-paced Jan 🙂 )
Things started off well with Chennai Tweetup at Broken Bridge (Pictures) , FoodWalk at Mint Street (Yet to upload pictures) and then Chennai Sangamam (pictures)
On 16th Jan, I went to the grand finale of Chennai Sangamam at Besant Nagar with Aswin and Yuvi. It was damn good and as usual I started taking photos. It was too crowded and we were not able to get near to the stage. I started using Aswin’s head as a tripod. Seeing this, a shop keeper gave me a chair and I continued to take photos by standing on this chair. When Drums Mani was performing, people standing in the back started to push and someone knocked the chair in which I was standing. After a few second this is how the chair looked like 🙂
I got up and after laughing at myself, checked my cam and myself. There were only some minor Scratches and I started to enjoy the event and then the fireworks.
It was only after a couple of days later, I came to know that my heroics efforts have caused some internal injury and have ruptured my appendix. I had severe pain in my abdomen and got admitted to the hospital on 21st Jan. After two hours of surgery doctors removed my appendix and now I am back at home after losing 30 grams of weight. 🙂
I went to hospital again today to get my stitches removed. It seems that the Wounds have healed and I should get back to normal life style in a week or two.
At last I succeeded in reducing my weight without any diet or exercise 😉
