Meanwhile, Indians were overjoyed to learn that their shoestring-budget Mars space probe had successfully gone into Mars orbit (I had blogged about it on Nov 5 last year):

Finally, I learnt today that I had nothing in my brain, and that's supposed to be good!
I underwent a brain MRI to rule out any lesions in my brain that might have been causing my spine to "pinch" and as a result affect my gait while also causing a stabbing pain in my shoulders and arms, especially on the left side.
As I was settled into the machine, the radiographer fitted headphones on my head and said: "You will hear soothing music to help you cope with the loud noises." I asked if I could request Pink Floyd. The young man looked nonplussed. He had never heard of the legendary rock band.
So what "soothing" music was played as I lay there for 30 minutes? The first was "Tears in Heaven" and the second was "Right Here Waiting (For You)". Hmmm. Thankfully, the last tune was "Morning Has Broken". I had survived.
Anyway, the doctor came by later to say, from his preliminary look at the result -- he will have the more detailed report ready the next day -- I had "nothing in my brain"... and so I had nothing to worry about. Thanks a lot.
Pink Floyd is still swimming in my head, though. So here's the YouTube video of three songs from their concert featuring their The Dark Side of the Moon album:
