Ah, well. My weakness. Well, one of them, anyway!
So – this is my latest acquisition:
I am realising that I barely write anything here. Must rectify that.
On the off-chance that someone reading this has not already seen it – the summer issue of the e-magazine of the Sherlock Holmes Society of India (it’s called “Proceedings of the Pondicherry Lodge”) is out now – has been for over a week. It’s available for free download and distribution at http://www.sherlockholmessociety.in.
That’s my favourite Sherlock – well, obviously. Ain’t he lovely?
Oh, Sherlock – you’re the best. Really.
Did you know today is the 100th day of this year? And since I’ve been putting up a Year of Sherlock Snippet on Facebook everyday – today was Year of Sherlock Snippet #100. It was “There will always come a time when we need Sherlock Holmes.”
Truer words were never said.
This is my current desktop wallpaper -If you’re a fan of Sherlock – whether you’re just Sherlocked or suffer from StockHolmes Syndrome, you should head to Sherlockology at the beginning of every month, solve their puzzle and download that month’s Sherlock wallpaper. I do it. This is the one for April, clearly.
Oh, yes – if you’re in London, tomorrow (April 11, 2014) there’s a conference called “New Directions in Sherlock” at UCL. Here’s the programme – though I’m not sure if it’s the final one (I really wanted to go, but real life interfered, unfortunately):
Anyhow, that’s that.
I’ve shifted to a new cabin at work – and this one has a window with a view of the High Court:
May not be much – but I love the colours. The red brick of the court and the green foliage.
And guess who dominates my cabin?
Who else but Mr Sherlock Holmes?
I wish I were rich. Then I could build a Sherlock Holmes Museum and even have a small temple in it to worship him.
Jai Sherlock Holmes!
My article (well, the edited version) on my European odyssey in the name of Sherlock Holmes was featured in yesterday’s Mumbai Mirror (16 March 2014). The article can be read here.
