Poor tota

Injured parrot Prashant rescued from our office lawn. And no sooner had we secured it in the box, the local mongoose -who's always running around- came out of his hiding place and started sniffing around and even climbing into the box! Nature's cruel :(

Then we had to put the box higher up, out of reach.

10 minutes after I took these photos, Mansi came back from Green Park and decided to meet the tota. She opened the box, and the parrot just flew out! Yay. I'm trying not to think about it falling somewhere else and actually being eaten up.

please type chandigarh

on the door of the Gandhi Bhavan auditorium, Punjab University campus.
I visited Chandigarh this past weekend. We stayed at the JW Marriot, which (however luxurious from the inside) was absolutely ugly from the outside and didn't respond to it's context at all. However, there was one redeeming feature:

all the signage was on metal panels with the Golden Ratio spirals!
also, for some reason, all the full stops were dropped/hanging. anyone know the logic (if any) behind this? 
You can see my other photographs here.
