About my Laptop situation: Well I can’t believe I ever blamed my laptop but turns out Microsoft is the real culprit here. The recent update to Windows 10 somehow fudged up my keyboard drivers, as the issue seems to be isolated only to Windows. I installed Ubuntu 14.04 on the side now (and this revamped version is just fab) and it seems to be working perfectly! My laptop is dying I know, though I cannot say for sure how much time it has got. The wheezes and coughs are getting more frequent but I don’t want to pull the plug until its last breath.
With that aside, I’m glad to be back to seeing everything on the big screen again. So I thought why not share these photographs that I took over the long weekend at Mahabalipuram.
This quaint little town is just an hour’s drive from Chennai and is famous for its well preserved rock-cut sculptures and temples from the Pallava Dynasty (circa 7th Century). A great place to laze off, it’s a bustling tourist spot these days with people from all over the world who are instantly drawn to its slackened pace of life and the cozy road side cafes.
I never pass up a chance to visit, and this evening was special too.
The view from this lighthouse is amazing!
And this used to be the lighthouse in the olden days!
To cap it all, it’s actually the monkeys that make the trip so amusing!
Look at that fellow, ha!
