Happy New Year

2008 has been an eventful year to say the least.

It begun with an awesome party at my last place. We have since moved to a nice little place and have had a couple of fun parties there too 🙂

Work was fun. Some friends moved on from Evalueserve to seek a different career path and that forced me to think about my future plans. After a lot of dilly dallying I finally decided to take a plunge at MBA and since then life has been almost exclusively about work and apping. The next month and a half will be very crucial for that and I hope to get some good news.

On the tech front, I learnt a lot more about my DSLR. Did experiment a lot with it. Resulted in a couple of good snaps. Also, Twitter was a big addition to my online profile, and in the last year I updated it approximately twice daily on average. I also posted on this blog more than a hundred times.

Personal life was interesting. Bro came back from the States. Thax came back for a while, only to return. Debo moved to UK for his education. Four very close friends (three couples) have decided to get married before the end of next year. Here’s wishing them and their significant halves best of luck and loads of joy. And I wish one of the couple puts their wedding invite online on Slideshare – it is absolutely the most amazing invite, wedding or otherwise, I have seen in my life – Hats off to both of you!!

What 2009 holds in store for me, but I can’t wait to find out.

Wishing you and your loved ones a Happy, Healthy, Peaceful and Prosperous New Year 🙂

And it rained..

I have lived at in my current apartment complex for almost three months, and have almost never seen anyone else outside, except in the morning.

But it rained today and it brought a lot of people out of their homes. The old gentleman trying to cover the stuff lying in the balcony. The neighbour and her three small kids, with outstretched arms, trying to feel the rain. The cute kid in the bajoo wala ghar, playing with her dalmation. The uncle (in 605 I think) having a smoke outside. And me having chai, and feeling the rain on my face.

It felt so fresh 🙂
