Goutham, having worked right through the weekend, was someone who you could not reason with on Monday. At 12:00 he forced me to drink coffee at Hotel Arasu (off Cunningham Road). At 13:30 he once again wanted to have South Indian meals (the Karnataka variety) at a decent place. Left with no choice I accompanied him to Hotel Chalukya on Race Course Road. The auto we were in seemed to be of the magnetic variety, attracting one vehicle after the other to make a dent in it.

13:45: Reached Chalukya in one-piece each.

The hall downstairs was full. So we headed up to the air-conditioned room, which too was full. We waited outside watching the hotel management make a mess of everything. In this hotel seats follow the finders-keepers principle. Once inside, we ordered two South Indian Special Meals, 70 bucks per meal. The contents:

  1. Oily Tomato Soup
  2. Roasted Papad
  3. A sweet that felt like a rock ( Goutham was :-( )
  4. Oil drenched Pooris (Goutham tried to hide one)
  5. Un-identified dishes in bowls
  6. Pulao with gravy that put VIBGYOR to shame (Goutham almost ate this one!)
  7. Hot rice
  8. Ice Cream

In summary, avoid this place like the plague.

14:50: Back in office. Waiting for after effects.

July 19 06:00: Loose motions as expected.
