Same questions that teleute posted...who is the guy? - has Einsteinish hair, eyes like an uncle of mine, moustache like another uncles, and a smile resembling that of a chimpanzee...

Sorry if you're offended... thats just the first impression I got from the pic...

As cassmortain suggests, I'm in danger of getting a jhaar!

He's the best-est teacher in the department. well i dunno if he's the best-est but yeah definitely the sweetest. And his nonchalant remarks are a joy.

cass : ahem, ahem, I be embarrassed enough without you having to rub it in, grrr :D

teleute : teehee, where picture from is my little secret :D

And you are in no danger of getting jhaar dear, cass's comment was about something else, refer later comment :D

post script : erm, since cassandra rupanjali mortmain insists on leaving bizarre comments, I feel obliged to add an explnatory comment for the benefit of befuddled readers....

erm, nothing much really, I was just giving this professor explanations as to why the class couldn't attend a screening of Oedipus Rex on the last day of college and the words I stammered out were to the effect, "sir, shobai kete porechhe, apni jodi chhobita dekhan and they all miss it aami bohut jhaar khabo!"

Yes well, all I have to add is, my bangla at the best of times is a single step away from being either hideously corrupt or extravagantly shudhho(=pure) and this particular prof reduces my nonchalently self-assured twenty-two year old self to a stuttering breathless twelve year old....sheesh!!!

Nasty comments would seem to be inevitable after this explanation but all commenters are hereby informed that sticks and stones might break my bones but *words* shall *never* hurt me. So hah!

Point 4) refers to picture :)

rimi : Flattery darling will get you anywhere Noo post and sudipto's special coming up!!! :D

kanti : I have yet to meet any Judean prof who comes to teach *in* a bike!! :D If you bachhas have nothing better to do we could arrange a blogmeet no doubt, although the debauchery I shall describe in upcoming posts might turn you off :D
And as to the institution that is ju, after three and a half years it can still mystify *me* at times :)

To the Starkindler's latest post elsewhere.

and Gilthoniel turned her head slightly, as if to ask, did i do right? and the warm softness of her breath assailed him, and held him captivated.
you did, indeed, Varda dearest! i replied. now you see, as i have seen. there are things too precious to lose. and kindred and old friends are of those.
