    A Trip to Paris

    In spite of being in London for nearly 3 years now, I applied for a Schengen visa a few months back. To open the visa you’re required to visit the country your applying from and what better place to visit than France and isn’t Paris the romantic capital of the world! So, Ashwina and me planned a three day trip to visit Paris the week before Christmas. Paris is a little over two hours from London with the Eurostar and it is a comfortable trip from St. Pancras International to Gare du Nord. We stayed at Hotel Le Petit Paris, which is just close to the Panthéon. We reached there…

    First three vacation days

    Christmas is the time of the year I’ve always looked out for. This year has been a very fulfilling year, which I shall write about in a future post. I took my core leave from 18 Dec to 3 Jan, which is the longest duration of leave that I have ever taken till date! Had booked the tickets in August itself, so it was only the matter of getting to the airport. Unlike last time, where my cab arrived early and the plane was late, I reached the airport at 10am on Friday. They have become a lot stricter at Bangalore airport. I wasn’t allowed to even take my bottle…

    Diwali in Mumbai

    Yes yes, I’m more than 10 days late with this post as well. But, managing to blog while attending lectures and being in two committees is a big big challenge. When I came down to Mumbai on January 4th, I did receive a welcome surprise from my Mom and Bro. Started off the Diwali vacations with mass on Sunday followed by a decent haircut (the last ones were two and half months back)! Picked up my bike from Abhijeet Jana, who has been using it while I’m out here in Pune and then went with for Nancy Drew on Sunday evening. During the week, I was invited for a well cooked…

    Life Last Two Months

    Have I been busy or have I been bored, considering my last post was two months back! Well, busy is more like it. WebComm Team This team was instituted after Ravi and I joined / founded it. And work was hectic the last week of August and the first week of September. While we did get the SCMHRD site up and running, as you can see it is painfully slow. There’s absolutely nothing I can do to speed it up except redesign the entire site. I’ve been working on a layout and speeded up the entire thing. A test site has worked decently, but I guess I will have to…

    Leaving on a Jet Plane

    Actually a Boeing 737. Woke up by 3.30am (not that I got much sleep earlier) and quickly got ready to leave. Mom insisted on coming with me to the airport (love you Mom) as I wasn’t too well. Spent a good half and hour standing in the checkin counter in a long line. Got through immigration easily and spent the rest of the time in the final waiting area. Thankfully the flight was on time.
