It is still fifteen to five
I am still awake, even though
i feel sleepy.

My mind is half cloudy
Is racing around
from here to the cab
in which she is headed
to the airport.

From my drawing room
to the lane outside,
which is deserted and
my flatmate, who is sleeping.

From under the fan
to under the tallest mountain
where Simone and Ueli
may be sleeping or
already awake.

But unlike me
their minds must be clear and
their path, up front.

Now it is almost five and
i am fighting my mind
to stay up for some sprints.

lockers at the DT Cinemas in Saket

While entering the DT Cinema at the DLF Place Mall, a few days back, i was pleasantly surprised to notice the usual lockers at the entrance had got some painting done on it. It turned out that some sensible person decided to paint the directions for locking and unlocking the lockers on them and that too next to the keyhole.

Even though the eventual application of the thought wasn’t very aesthetically done, at least it felt nice to see some design thinking being applied to solve a problem, irrespective of its not so large implication on the overall smooth running of the systems in place when it comes to signage and communication.

In the times that i have been to the paticular cinema, i have somehow always found it difficult to find out where which audi is. Obviously, one figures out soon enough where they are exactly but it is not intuitive or right there in front of you to not even think for a moment for having to look for it.

Nonetheless, a nice little development which gave me some bit of happiness.
