Thoughts on Love

Monday, February 22nd, 2010

Back in 2008, somebody asked me a question about love and relationships. Can two people stay happy together? Here’s what I had written back. It’s not easy. Look, the best thing you can do is to find a person who loves you for exactly who you are — good mood, bad mood, ugly, pretty, handsome, […]

In The Lull, The Garden Blooms

Monday, November 12th, 2007

I have been silent here for a while and in this meantime, there have been some major changes in my life. The most profound one is my marriage in September to a wonderful girl from Jallandhar. I took 2 weeks off and we went south to the picturesque Lakshadweep islands where even my phone wasn’t […]

Of Sleeping Souls & Opportunities Lost

Saturday, March 31st, 2007

A friend who is an avid biker except probably he’s the only one so excited about it in his/my group forwarded a link about going on journeys on bikes in the hope it will rouse the sense of adventure in our sleeping souls. In my meanness, polished over the years of practise, I retorted back […]

A Calvin & Hobbes Fan

Thursday, February 1st, 2007

I’m a Calvin & Hobbes fan. Have been for a long time. Once upon a time when I wasn’t as busy with work, I actually spent time collecting strips from the official site. Religiously. Every day. Built up quite a collection too. Recently I came across the collector’s edition of Calvin & Hobbes: The Complete […]

Loving & Enjoying What I Do Gets Better?

Monday, January 22nd, 2007

Three words that most people who know me know nearly run my life: Computers Internet Music How many people get a chance to do what they want to do, their hobby being their job, and their passion for something getting a chance to become something real & practical? Not many. I’m one of the luckier […]

What I Do At Work

Friday, January 19th, 2007

Since I had to and am not feeling particularly modest today, I decided to write down the important bits from among all the stuff I do at work: Manage a team of 15 designers for online advertising/marketing + brand development work.

The site for a new residential development by Jade Jagger in New York City developed by my team in Net Solutions with C-Cube is Adobe Site of the Day. Cool.

A Curse…

Friday, October 13th, 2006

I just cursed a friend thus: god is a witness to your crime. you will eat more salt than what is prescribed for a man of your body mass with your activity profile and consequently you will have to drink more water and piss more and in one such visits to the loo, you will […]

Hero Honda has re-launched the once-phased-out 156-cc bike CBZ as CBZ Xtreme. I had bought CBZ in October 2000. It was my first big purchase with my earned money. The only reason I had bought CBZ at that time was because…

Why don’t people realise the importance of saying goodbye? I wish I had said my goodbye better.

Ain’t it outta this world that within a few hours of me declaring a personal war on procrastination (one of the biggest evils in me), I find that 43 Folders has a post about it? Go read it; it makes sense sense too.

Pareto’s Rule & Indian DJs

Sunday, September 4th, 2005

Like many other things, the Pareto’s rule also applies to the Indian DJs: 80% of them have heard only 20% of the music they ought to have. I listen to a lot of music myself: bought, borrowed, gifted, and stolen. Perhaps because of this, and/or because I had the right friends, I was in contact […]

My Team

Saturday, August 6th, 2005

One thing that I have tried religiously to do is keep most of my work-related stuff out of my blog. It’s been slightly tough since I spend an average of 130 hours a week in the office (out of a total possible of 168). There are a few things that have crept in of course: […]

And Another Year!

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2005

Happy birthday to me. Happy birthday to me. *toot* *toot* Okay, so I completed 27 years today. Wow. Twenty-Seven. I still feel 18 though. That’s gotta be good in some psychiatric interpretation. πŸ˜‰ I’m in far better spirits than last year. Lately I’ve become a hard-core positive thinker and I’m rather enjoying the energy it […]
