An email that felt good to read…

I received the following email from another member of the cycling egroup that I belong to:

I’m Charles Hayward and I had a large stroke on Easter Sunday of this year. Luckily, I was able to recover with minimal residual impact which according to my doctors is attributable to being relatively fit.My fitness (at least recently) is because I cycle, so in recognition of World Stroke Day (which is 29th Oct actually) I wanted to ask people to join with me in lauding the benefits of cycling.

My idea was for a group ride starting from Decathlon-Sarjapura-
Chitratirupathi-Hope Farm-Varthur-Decathlon. It should be around 50+ kilometers and is a nice ride out into the country/villages.

I would love for a good turnout of folks as it’s a day near and dear to my heart. I’m open to suggestions for other routes and how to handle (faster/slower/kids etc..) riders of different capabilities.

The point is to get out and ride it can truly make the difference
between life and death.

Charles Hayward

Theatre Review: “Credit Titles” by Bangalore Little Theatre

It was like a rare alignment of the planets: several factors come together to pull me out of my usual Ranga Shankara ambit for watching a play. I had not been to visit Bangalore International Centre, which opened a while ago in Domlur; Bangalore Little Theatre, as part of their "VP 80" festival, was staging "Credit Titles"; the play, written by Vijay Padaki, whose 80th birthday the festival marks, was based on a story by Vinod Vyasulu, an eminent economist whom I've known for a long time, as our daughters share a cose friendship dating from 1988. And last but…
