    Christmas and new year festivities aside, I’ve got a ton of work to do over the next week… So I’ll still be blogging regularly. My radio doc for the Guardian is finished and will go out on 5th jan. I have two big articles to finish before then too. Woe is me :(
    Anyone else in the same predicament? Tonight however, I will eat for five people. That is the Indian Christmas way.

      Can vegetarians celebrate Christmas? What do you do for turkey?

      If they bother, it’s surely nut-roast - how come you don’t know that?
      -tho’ they forego the traffic thru the turkey’s rectal passarzhe.

      Dear Sunny-

      One Cif piece to write, some emails to send out, a few bills to pay … and having to do all that before I fly out tomorrow morning.

      ‘Tis the fate of those who want to be participants & not just spectators, nay? ;)

      MSK, participants in??

      Rumbold - I eat all the veggie stuff around it… our extended family is careful to separate out veggie food from meat and make lots of the former.

      Dear Sunny,

      Participants in “life, politics, etc.”

      Weak attempt at a joke while digesting a big x-mas meal.

      Cheers & happy holidays,

      Heh… i decided to go veggie earlier this month., lasted only about 10 days! Its freaking hard if you grew up as a meat eating north Indian! How do you manage Sunny?

    7. Sunny — on 25th December, 2008 at 5:13 pm  

      willpower mate, willpower. Discipline.

      if you can’t manage something like that, it’s only because you don’t have sufficient resolve.

      Lol. Happy belated Christmas, Mr. Hundal (and all)! :-D

      Good luck blogging and make sure you OD on the sleep as well the food!

      As somebody who had to have veggie Christmas lunch because my family are vegetarian, I was actually almost kind of glad. What with the broccoli and carrots, roasted parsnips and potatoes and nut roast, I somehow survived. If I’d actually eaten meat AS WELL, I think I might’ve exploded and died.

      “Anyone else in the same predicament?”

      Do sympathise! Advice is to multi-task as the ladies will say .. :-D Look forwarding to catching the documentary on line.

      This will make you feel a lot better. Am off on Monday chasing some winter peaks to trek in the Langtang region of Nepal. Going to spend New Years at high altitude - well not quite high altitude - but at least 4000m. Though bitter, bitter cold, will be on top of the world on New Years Eve:-D
