It’s been over 23 year my address had been revolving around the PIN Code 110023. I’ve been so much attached that at many places this has been my permanent address (actually just like we put –do– or –Same as above– in Permanent Address & Present Address field). Now it’s time to move on… not leaving Delhi but 110023 is not where I’ll be.
Spent all school days from this place, even returned here in college, , got first job, got married and also have a kid. When so much happen around the same place you grew up, it actually holds a special place. Remember many shortcuts, those cycle races, play grounds, chased away by gardeners, house-hopping. Actually have been spoilt by the area and never will find such a place. As my dad says, “We are living at the citadel”, yes Raisina Hill is not for from there 😉 We bid farewell to friends, offices, jobs and even to frenemies but this is me leaving with a heavy heart and lots of memories. Good Bye 110023.

I’m traditionally a movie theatre person, but that charm seems to be loosing, movies ain’t cheap anymore. Continue reading My Movies, My Way!→
There are times when we feel if we had this or that document. I faced this a lot and put my data on cloud, as they say it. My first space was mail provider which have lot of space (Google Gmail was choice then). Due to limitation, I moved to AjaXplorer (now called Pydio), because I had space available with my host and kept things in my control. They have an app too. With advent of services like DropBox & Box, it seemed I was just using up my hosting space.

Do you love the dialogue, “teri keh ke loonga” or “beta tumse na ho paayega” or even “baap ka, bhai ka, sabre badla legal tera Faizal“. I do & now I own the movie too
