    New York calling!

    This year has been a relatively eventful one when it comes to holidays… also expensive! I know I haven’t blogged much about personal life, but this event definitely warrants at least one post as I’ve always wanted to come down for a holiday to New York and this one has eluded me for several years. New York, I’m here! Ashwina and I took our annual holiday to India in March this year. We stayed at the ITC Maratha in Mumbai for more than a week followed by a trip to Mangalore and then Pune. We then had two weddings to attend – one in Athens and the second in Helsinki.…

    Top 10 v2.5.6

    I’ve released Top 10 v2.5.6 which adds a new tool under the Top 10 > Tools page which allows you to recreate the PRIMARY KEY in the tables. This provides a much needed fix to a bug in 2.5.5 where the primary key got lost in several installs likely because the dbDelta function didn’t work as intended. This follows two bug fix releases over the past several weeks particularly around compatibility with the Settings API that was introduced in Top 10 v2.5 where things didn’t work properly in some installs. Detailed changelog in v2.5.6 2.5.6 Features: Added new button under Tools to recreate the PRIMARY KEYs 2.5.5 Bug fixes: Fixed…

    Happy New Year 2018!

    As most good things come to an end, so must 2017. Browsing through my list of posts for the past two years, I realised that I completely missed out a Happy New Year post for 2017. Can’t miss that two years in a row now, can we? 2017 – A Year in Review Life… I began 2017 in India, more specifically being ill in Bangalore where I (as did Ashwina) spent a good portion of the holiday in bed recovering from bad allergy attacks. Apparently I can’t handle the pollen and pollution anymore! At least it got better when I got back to Mumbai where we were soon well enough…

    Book review: Dan Brown’s Origin

    I’ve always enjoyed reading Dan Brown, right from the time I read Da Vinci Code. I know a lot of people went crazy questioning faith, questioning the book and more and it’s an argument I find pointless. However, it does remain that he is a good author. Since then I’ve caught up on a lot of his books particularly when Google Play or Amazon threw me some offers. So, when I spotted that Origin was ready for release, I pre-ordered it and it to be delivered to my kindle which is on its last legs. So what exactly is Dan Brown’s Origin about? Robert Langdon, Harvard professor of symbology and…

    14 Years of Blogging

    Been traveling over the past three days and I completely forgot that I missed October the first. 14 years ago in a city far away from here, I decided to set up this blog as an experiment. It’s been 14 years of blogging. I must confess I’m not as regular as I used to be, but hope to get back with hopefully something more interesting to write. Any suggestions?

    Journey to the Isle of Skye – 5 years later

    A long long time ago or five years (if you consider that long), a much younger version of Ajay and Ashwina went down to the Isle of Skye. This was pretty much our first big holiday as husband and wife which sparked a whole set of adventures that we have had over the past several years. I’ve usually been reluctant to do the same trip again because there are so many other places to visit and it’s hard to relive the magical experience you have the first time around. However, as her parents were in town and Skye remains one of the most beautiful places in the UK, we decided…

    Happy birthday to me!

    It sure has been a while since I wrote a personal post and today is definitely a good day to write one as I celebrate my birthday today! The day turned out to be quiet yet positively eventful. Got some good news yesterday at work, which has become really hectic over the past several months, or should I say year? At the US embassy This morning began with me making a trip to the US Embassy in Grosvenor Square for a relatively early morning appointment. I’ve always wanted to make a trip to the States but never found an opportunity just yet. With a trip on the horizon, the first…
