Batman’s view from top of a light pole!
I have taken up the responsibility of someone’s surveying job not because “I generally do these jobs” as a colleague of mine put it but thought “lets see...” (Also because I intend to use the data in a research paper I am attempting to write). I don’t understand why do jobs like surveying, model making and 3d rendering have such a big (social, cultural, political etc. choose your pick) stigma attached. Is that a sign of lesser intelligence?

But anyways to all you people who thought surveying Cuffe Parade is boring (and beyond their intellectual standards) we landed up in a BEST Mac Lift buckets thanks to Namrata who requested aamchi Mumbai BEST kamgars who were only too happy to take both of us to the top of the world !

Urban Floop

Yes i have reloaded the blog...
Decided to stick to the old name...i think it is phonetically interesting; breaks the seriousness of 'urban'...imagine the blog being 'urban research' or something like that. A little bit more phenomenological theorizing on 'floop' and i might just be able to push it in the oxford.
Urban Floop will be an experiment, archive and other things big and small that shall occupy my interest and I may want to record, retain, share beyond the scope of my short term memory...some postings may be vaguely related to something personal but I shall try to steer clear of personal day to day acts, grievances and courtships as I can knowing this to be a sort of balcony/terrace space...dwelling between semi public- semi private...some place vague.
Urban Floop will be a combined effort of all my confusions, misinterpretations and blind ambitions to create something vaguely fun to read...though at times I may take to using footnotes in order to assure the authenticity of the sources but mostly it will be true and everything will work out all right...
