Ok! One more time

I’ve been missing again, mostly from here. This post coming after over 4 months since Happy New Year 2017.

Where I’ve been? Mostly sleeping, little to none activity.

Why? There’s no particular reason and best I can come up with is was busy with office work. When had free time, played some mobile games (“Clash Royale”). Almost killed this blog due to a stupid mistake. Rebuilt it from scratch and it still looks like $#*+

Now what? I don’t know. Maybe that age old line from me, I’ll try to be regular.
I’ll be back.

Happy New Year 2017

Another year passed with several ups and downs. 2016 has come to a passe now but it has touched everyone be it in or out of India.

Demonetization had been the talk of the nation at its fag end, many supported and some did not stop at politicizing it and there were some trying to take advantage. As we enter 2017, hope to have one less thing to worry (carrying currency notes) and make transactions via plastic money or online. Lets enter new year with more point of sale machine & people, banks and shopkeepers keep aside their tax saving ideas aside and adopt this change to make India great again.

Wish you all of you and your near and dear ones a very Happy New Year 2017 and no one to struggle for cash.

22km Cycling Team

After a long time I’ve moved my lazy bum and rode 22 kms along with some friends to complete the 100 for 100 Challenge on 100th Anniversary of Battle of Somme.

When we drove 88km (well, 22km * 4 😉)

One more year – 2016

It’s the time of the year for that customary New Year post. Just before writing this, I finished 2 posts in quick succession Basic Necessities and Kejriwal – Raising Stakes. Undecided what I should write (more), so I looked back. Last year was one of the times when I was quite low and also lost trust of some people. Devoted some more time to blog (yes, wrote a little more than earlier years), disconnected from social media (read Facebook). Due course of the year, I’ve understood its part of life. You win some and you lose some and as they say I’m back on my feet for now.

I cherish, this has been the most successful year of my blog and post related to SBI online banking has been most commented on. Yes! I count comments because I’m not in the league where unique visitors count. My unique visitors hardly go over 5 fingers but the response for this post want me write more. I shifted my house couple of months back and still coping with new address.

Even though my posts have been as old as 2009 but reposted due to domain name changes, which has screwed the timelines (oldest post in this blog is shown as 2010). I never had a fixed staring point but now it’s time to ask 2016, where to now?

Wish you all and your near and dear ones a fun-filled and prosperous New Year – 2016

Egg & Chicken problem: Address Change

I finished up posting about issues in India with Are we there yet? and I’m stuck knee-deep in an Egg and Chicken problem. May be I’ve a solution but it is as twisted logic as the rule. Continue reading “Egg & Chicken problem: Address Change”
