Election Day

by

Election Day turned out to be an unexpectedly active one.

But first, I wanted to start the election ...

Coorg- A Photo Essay

by

In some ways, our trip to Coorg was a rainy mess, but we still managed to have a great time. The rains made the place look so beautifully green and we ended up taking tons of pictures. We did have to be a bit careful because we didn't want the rain to get into the ...

Laughathon at Barbeque Nation

Went to catch up with my friends over dinner at Barbeque Nation in Indra Nagar. Contrary to popular perception, this is a pretty veg-friendly restaurant with enough options for me to be comfortable, relax, and enjoy myself. The availability of wine on the house also helped :) We sat n chatted n laughed so much that ...

Dinner with my much-missed ex-colleagues

by

Last month, Shobha (one of my colleagues from our HP days) came to visit Bangalore. Our whole gang met up for dinner and we all had a total and complete blast.
