    Happy New Year 2016

    Happy New Year to everyone reading this. I wish you the very best for 2016. It’s definitely going to be more awesome than 2015. 2015 – Year in Review For a change at the start of 2015, I didn’t make any major resolutions, but instead decided to take the year as it came. What’s the point of resolutions when you don’t keep them, right? On work… 2015 started out to be a year like any other year, busy and in fact ended as busy as it started. However, that being said a good portion of the year was definitely better with me stepping up my role and desperately fighting to…

    The six month life update 2012

    When I  was busy changing the theme on this blog, I realised that it’s been five months since my last personal post. Time has become a precious commodity ever since I became an investment banker. As a result the number of personal posts has reduced. And, it unlikely to change in the near future. Back in December, I made a trip down to Mumbai. Besides being Christmas season wasn’t the only reason I was down in the city. While the blog post didn’t say it, the main reason for my trip in December was the first preparatory steps for my wedding in February! After returning from Mumbai, I dived head…

    2010: A Life Changing Year

    Come new years eve, most people stop and take a look at the year that was past. I am no different. The end of 2010 also brings together the end of the first decade of the new millennium. And, what a decade it has been! And, what a year 2010 has been! For me 2010 has been one of best years professionally and one of my worst personally (or so I think currently). I began 2010 with a clear future in mind. I had my usual 5 year plan ready, complete with a Plan B in place! But, as they say, man proposes, God disposes, little did I know how…

    A Brief Life Update

    I made my last personal blog post four months back. Since that very date, my life has changed, a change I never expected to come to pass, a change that till today makes me wonder if it is for the better or worse. Since then I have been involved in many things, including a few parties and the Arsenal vs. Fulham game. And, we did get to watch Samir Nasri scoring the first goal. I also had my first experience with snow about two weeks back when I woke up to falling snow. Set out with great excitement, took two steps and landed flat on my back. The next time…

    It’s movie time!

    Surprise! An update in less than  one month 😉 Two weeks back I went off to the O2 to watch Inception. Since then I have caught three more movies, viz. A-Team, Knight and Day and Karate Kid. I have taken the unlimited movies plan at Cineworld, and I have already made that up for this month by watching two movies in the last two days 🙂 By my math, I’ll need to watch just 18 movies in the next three months. Call me thrifty 😉 Work has been crazy as usual with me finishing my fourth all-nighter at work in the three months that I have been here. Not something…

    London update

    Finally got a day to myself and hence the point of this post. Ideally, by now, you should be able to see a million photographs on my photo album on Facebook. However, a total lack of social life explains the un-updated album! Since then, I have been slogging like crazy at work with minimal amount of fun. In the last 6 weeks I have: Worked almost every weekend and almost every day till at least 11pm Watched Robin Hood Went to Piccadilly Circus area and had amazing pizza at an Italian restaurant Shifted residence, well, almost And, that’s about it. There is one bit of good news though, my original…

    London Calling!

    My secondment at my company got me flying off to London and I fell in love with the city the minute I stepped out of the airport. And, I have grown to love the place even more in the past three weeks. I must confess that I haven’t seen much of this place, because I have been working a lot more out here than back in Bangalore! But, the work is good and responsibility is even better. I am hoping that the week to come will be a bit lighter. I landed here on the 3rd which was a bank holiday out here in UK and so grabbed complete opportunity…

    Visiting Indiranagar

    It was a really short visit about two weeks back, when I went to meet Akshat and Neha at the Cafe Coffee Day in Indiranagar. Those who know me do not find it hard to imagine that I haven’t seen Bangalore even though I have been here for nearly 11 months. I also realized that Indiranagar is not as far as I thought it to be! It’s about 7-8km from where I stay. But, it doesn’t take too long because of the wide open roads leading to the place. It has been a while since I cruised along so sweetly. I’m still waiting to go out to Barista sometime soon.…

    I’ve been busy!

    The last month reminds me of 2007 when I just entered SCMHRD as a budding MBA student. Life was totally crazy then since I just didn’t have the time to blog or even check my email. That is something that I have been feeling off late. Well, blame it on my exhausting job. In my line of work, the only thing that keeps us going is the level of enjoyment we have at work. Otherwise, I am sure I wouldn’t have survived! On the work front, I’ve been working non-stop on a good number of weekends! I had an extra day off in which I tried really hard to complete…

    I’m alive!

    When someone decides to message you all of a sudden and grumble that you are not blogging, then it is an indication that it has been a while. Well, I know it has, considering the last post was a month back. However, my life is so full of work, that I honestly, don’t have much to blog about. Anyway, as an update, I have been working long hours all through the week and the concept of weekend is a blur. e.g. I worked till 1.30am on both Thursday and Friday! Weekends that do come along are spent with me resting all day long. Well, that’s life of an investment banker.…
