Writing inane stuff to retain my sanity

It has been just that kind of week/month/quarter - I really cannot remember farther than that! 

I work for an organisation that has its fiscal year end on 31st October every year and the last couple of months typically are chaos - well, mildly organised chaos at least. And while wallowing in such chaos, one comes across very rare moments of sanity and does something that, on reflection, appears to be actually useful.

Here are some pics of what I was up to while trying to maintain my sanity.

Here, I believe a word about ASA Pens is in order. Run by Mr. L. Subramaniam of Chennai, these pens are like a breath of fresh air and for the quality you get, these easily tick the "extremely affordable" and "value for money" boxes.

As an aside, other notable pen manufacturers from India include Ranga pens (based in Thiruvallur in Tamil Nadu), Ratnam pens and Guider pens - both based in Rajamumdhry, Deccan pens based in Hyderabad and some others like Fosfor pens from Pune who make extremely beautiful custom pens.

In the past few weeks, I have found that there is always one ASA pen inked up and ready to use when I reach for something to write with. In the past couple of weeks, I have used the ASA Rainbow and the ASA Popsicle and they have me completely hooked by their fantastic balance in my hands.

If you are interested, there are links to purchase the ASA Rainbow and Popsicle below. Also here is a review of the ASA Rainbow by a fellow Fountain Pen enthusiast.

Hope you liked this.
