Traffic troubles for all

Traffic troubles for all

On the way to my office, I have to cross the most dense traffic of the city. Every day is a new challenge. And thanks to the repair works, even the footpaths are occupied by mud, slosh and huge circular pipes (God knows when they will finally be sent into the ground, and free up the footpath). So, the frustration […]

Busy Busy Busy

Busy Busy Busy

Busy at home. Busy at office, and busy in sleep. That’s how the last month went. At home: Aadya (7 months now), is super-active now, and needs to have a few pair of eyes always on her. Within a minute, she can reach places which she is not supposed to. So, she has made me more alert, and I my brain […]

Pilaaan… The plan never works

Pilaaan… The plan never works

The day I choose to do things in a planned way, everything works against me, and throws my well planned schedule out of course. This has happened to me time and again, and still I keep trying. I sometimes wonder if planning has actually worked for anyone at all, or its just me. I wanted to wake up early. Finally […]

Cycling chronicles: Over 1000 kms

Cycling chronicles: Over 1000 kms

The distance to my office is about 16-17 kms one way, and the days I chose to cycle to office, it feels like a really long time. 34 kms, in a day, cycling, I had never imagined that I would be able to do it regularly, without fainting. I haven’t fainted yet. But, I do sweat a lot. And after […]

The Switch

The Switch

Finally, switching to WordPress from Blogger. Looks like Google would be retiring Blogger soon and I should be ready before that happens, sooner or later. The switch wasn’t easy at all, and I have just started. Exporting all the posts from my blogger blogs into this new place. The complete migration will take some time, since I have about 300 […]

30 Days of being a father

30 Days of being a father

She came into my arms a few days before I was expecting her. And the first time, I was very scared to hold her. She was probably fast asleep, and I didn’t want to wake her up. May be she would cry out loud if I disturbed her, and I still didn’t know how to soothe a crying baby. Although […]

5 Things About Life

5 Things About Life

1. It is never fair. Never ever. Well, may be at times when it is unfair to your enemies, or people you hate so much that you wish them death. 2. You always need help. Wherever you go, and whatever you do, no matter how intelligent or rich you are, you always need someone’s help. 3. There’s never enough time. […]

The Cycling Experiences

The Cycling Experiences

I have been cycling for the last few days, after a long break of about 12 years. I had my doubts if I will be able to utilise it for the purpose I had planned for. Recently, I changed jobs, and my new office is twice as far as my old one. So riding to office daily, or even twice […]

Got something, for the New Year

Got something, for the New Year

Finally, I got it. After months of planning and postponing, I got myself a bicycle. OK. Now stop sneering please. I know you must have heard this plan of mine last year. But, it’s finally official. I am a proud owner of a two-wheeler, which doesn’t run on petrol. And that was my first ride. The Bangalore roads are so […]

The Christmas Invite and the Plum Cake

The Christmas Invite and the Plum Cake

Well, my wife didn’t buy me a Lamborghini, yet, I am writing just one more post. We were just siting and watching some boring TV program, and could here a distant noise. After a few minutes, we could tell that there were some children singing songs, beating the drums, and knocking on all doors. They are very loud, louder than […]
