Saturday-Pentacle, Week 4 Issue
Post of the week –
This is a twitter client app. One of the best I’ve used till now. It’s not like your normal twitter client. It mainly focuses on decluttering your feed by showing almost 1 or 2 posts at once on the screen. Pictures are larger and fonts are totally customizable. Made me use Twitter more than before and in an amazingly productive way.
Here is the android download link. Unfortunately, it’s not available for iOS yet.

Photo No.5 . Behind the scenes of photo no. 2 'Hawamahal Front'. . To get the amazing full frontal Hawamahal shot (at least I think it is amazing). I checked with the locals and got to know about a spot across the street. It was on a rusty rooftop and to reach there you had to climb 3 different flights of stairs and go through a few narrow alleys and then a café. . I felt an adventurous joy in reaching that spot. . I went across the street. Climbed the first flight of stairs. Stairs weren't well lit. But as soon as i went inside, it was an interestingly lit abonandoned but not so poorly lit arrangement which looked like a praying spot to me. (1st photo). With aesthetically soothing color scheme and a few plants still green. . Inside the closed prayer house there was a mechanised instrument which had dhol (drums and bells attached with two motorized sticks. (2nd photo). It reminded me of an instrument from my childhood, which used to play in the temples (A big mechanised band, which used to play an intense tune with bells and drums. It sounded like Dhing dhing dhing… Dhing dhing dhing). . I was lost in nostalgia when i heard 'Kidhar ja rahe ho Babu' (where are you going sir?) and i came back from thoughts to find a tea server right behind me. Hawamahal ka photo lene ja raha hun, uppar kaise jate hai? (I'm going to take the picture of Hawamahal, how should I go up?) I asked. He pointed me towards a narrow stairway going up. (3rd and 4th photo) . Then i reached the 2nd floor which was so narrow that it was almost not there. But from there I could see The Tattoo Café, which I had to cross to reach the spot. . I took the third sketchy flight of stairs which opened inside the café (5th photo), where I had to go from left and all the way to the right to reach the glass door end. That door was the only thing left now between me and that spot. . I asked the three gentlemen sitting there if i can use the door to reach there and they generously said yes. I crossed it and reached the rusty rooftop (6th photo). I took a breath and then looked right to see a bustling street below (7th photo). And then there it was. . The majestic 'Hawamahal front'. (8th photo) . . #story
Movie I’m really excited for —
Lady Bird – I got to know about this movie when I was recently watching The Graham Norton show on Comedy Central (Don’t kill me I watch TV sometimes). Saoirse Ronan who is an Irish actress came as a guest on the show and I was surprised to see here wit. Quite a lot for a 23 years old girl.
But Damn! She is nominated for the Best Actress Oscars for this movie (Total 5 nomination including Best Actress and Best Picture). It’s the kind of a low budget which takes life on its own.
Plot of the movie (taken from Google) – An outspoken teen must navigate a loving but turbulent relationship with her strong-willed mother over the course of an eventful and poignant senior year of high school.
Looking forward to watch this one in the comings days. Here is the trailer to get your curious –
What am I listening to —
Winter Calm – Another amazing gem from Majestic Casual.
P.S.: It’s a 1-hour playlist. Amazing to write on to.
Quote I’m pondering on lately – A yoga quote for this week. Inspired by an Instagram post.
“Yoga is when every cell of the body sings the song of the soul.”
— B. K. S. Iyenger, January 1986
