trip to a village again

Monday, March 2nd, 2009

Has been quite a while since last time, so about time for another trip to the village… Luckily my mom could join me again and this time my sister as well. It had been a pretty cool trip (inspite of the hot weather) with my brother in law Anand and the three women in my […]

a good investment

Monday, February 16th, 2009

Today I received a handwritten letter. Its been a long time since I got a handwritten letter in the mail, many years (I don’t even remember when the last time was!) So it was a good surprise to find one today. The contents had a photo of a little girl, and a copy of her […]

quantum leap beyond a mediocre life

Sunday, February 8th, 2009

In physics, a quantum leap or quantum jump is a change of an electron from one quantum state to another within an atom.

FW: the monkey with the wooden apples

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2009

A forwarded mail from Venki (Today’s Kagga)… There once was a happy monkey wandering the jungle, eating delicious fruit when hungry, and resting when tired. One day he came upon a house, where he saw a bowl of the most beautiful apples. He took one in each hand and ran back into the forest. He […]

celebrating my dad's birthday

Tuesday, January 13th, 2009

Now, well after almost a decade after my dad died… this year of 2009 we decided to celebrate his birthday a little more significantly than just remembering him.

detachment vs negligience

Thursday, November 20th, 2008

In one of the daily kaggas, one of the things I felt is its warning us that detachment should not deteriorate into negligence. Of course, I know a lot more about negligence because I’ve been better at it 😉 But there have been a few detached moments as well have an idea about the difference, […]

Thursday, November 20th, 2008

Whenever the teacher asked any question, he would lift his hand enthusiastically “me me me I know I know”. The teacher being bored of seeing his hand go up, would look around and pick someone else or maybe […]

multi-select option for a has-many relationship : check box list

Thursday, April 17th, 2008

[TODO: open a new site for technical posts or revamp this one so that they don’t get mixed up…!!] After a long time, thanks to the lovely spirit, opportunity and encouragement I received from my fellow spiders @ spiderlogic, I actually managed to contribute something however insignificant to the GRAILS open-source community. For a has-many […]

to lie or not to lie was no more a question

Monday, January 14th, 2008

Tata’s birthday was last November, and this is something that occurred to me then. But I’ve somehow gone out of touch with writing so not put it down. But though there are lot of articles pending, felt should not postpone this any more… so here goes… We had a West End Cooperative Society with Jeejabhai  at […]

quote on relationships

Wednesday, November 21st, 2007

Nowadays with the increasing popularity of live-in relationships compared to marriages, maybe this makes a lot of sense… Love, all alike, no season knows, nor clime, Nor hours, days, months, which are the rags of time. – John Donne Loyalty is a precious quality that we have almost lost sight of today. Instead of loyalty, […]
