#India is in a #Lockdown to fight #Covid19 #Coronavirus – Day 32

0

The day began with the investigative skills of the Mrs. The sesame oil purchased had expired and the new bottle of sesame oil was not smelling the way it should. The product expiry date of one of the batches was over a year ago and the grocery store owner had not noticed it before selling the bottle of oil.

Today was a day to complete a round up of the week’s pipeline, activities in progress, activities due for completion and sharing of information with the team. The attendance was encouraging and participation was improving. There were good suggestions from the team members and with a new collaboration tool being introduced, activities at the work place were getting interesting.

Other presentations and data collecton activities were nearly complete and we were eager to close for the week. The Miss’ birthday is due on the 28th of April. An order for a kilogram of red velvet cake has been placed with the neighbourhood baker, who incidentally, lives in the same building complex. Children are taking the lockdown and e-classrooms positively and displaying a lot of commitment towards the task on hand. They are marking one month of virtual connects and are now eager to hear their teachers tell them if the summer holidays are still on. The month of May is when the children and teachers get a break from each other before resuming in the month of June.

Since Idli batter was made available, lunch was a sambhar made of drumstick and a small quantity of sweet pumpkin curry. A bit of paruppu/dhal made it feel like the starting portion of a wedding feast.

Idlies with drumstick sambhar made it a wonderful carbohydrate filled day. Lots of protein from the dal as well.

Good music on the local radio channel after dinner and direct to bed. Look forward to a decent weekend.
