I had no idea these would even grow in Bahrain, let alone develop so well. When a plant shop salesman handed me these seeds months ago, he was also not sure what would happen. Yes, they will grow, he said, to a few feet above the ground and, maybe, give some flowers. You can try, he said and try I did, not knowing what … Continue reading Tall Story
The sky looked surrealistic this afternoon as I gazed out of my bedroom window. It was cloudy, as if about to rain; it was windy, with the icy winds (yes, seems improbable, but there WAS snowfall in Saudi Arabia today and that’s having a ripple effect on Bahrain); and it was dull and dreary, with just a hint of sun peeping from behind the clouds. … Continue reading And then it burst into flames

It’s finally happened. It had to. Petrol prices in Bahrain have today shot up 60 per cent – the first time an increase has been effected in 33 years – and all hell’s broken lose. A litre of gasoline now costs between 33 to 43 cents so one can imagine what it was earlier! Virtually free, if you ask me. Coming from India, where it … Continue reading The Game is on
