Koovum Kalling.

I don't believe I'm actually doing any of this. Firstly, I wake up at the ungodly hour of half past five, just a little after Mr. Sun has greeted my part of the world. After which, I head out to rowing camp! Yes, I can see a few people fall out of their chairs already... but this is for REAL. Rowing has been tremendous fun and strenuous exercise... The only drawback being, well, you guessed right.. I row in the friggin' Koovum. I could actually walk up to a lot of people in the city and claim "I know what you had for dinner last night". But, I will spare myself the agony of going into graphic details. Why the hell have we been unable to find an effective solution to clean the Koovum up? The city corporation has failed to address this issue for over a decade. It's a shame really, that the Koovum is a landmark for all the wrong reasons.

P.S: Apparently, they dunk the summer campers in on the last day, so everybody in Adyar or thereabouts gets a hug from me! :)
