Hussain’s non-controversial Saraswathi

Do I love my job, or WHAT?

Details on the interview will have to wait. But he did ask me to drop in again, after all ‘we both live here in Doha.’ Uh-hum!

Hussain's sketch in my notebook

PS: Over the last couple of days I’ve been reading an outpouring of angst against him — his perversity, his insensitivity etc, there were images to support the argument… I was a little confused, especially since my outpouring has always been to the contrary.

But I am a fairly good judge of people, he didn’t seem guilty of any of that. He is just a ย funny, happy, energetic ageless man.
