Spent a bit of time on Facebook on Sunday and I mentioned that I was looking forward to a couple of easy days, Tuesday and Wednesday. Like hell.Got into the office on Tuesday morning to work on a memento for ‘Steady’ John Steedman. Wrapped up by noon. Went to Bandra to meet someone who will be helping Campaign India’s Goafest efforts (look out for it).Came back to the ITC Central for a cup of tea with Steady. Great chat, and out of the discussions was born a great feature idea. Look out for this one, too.
