The rollercoaster

This whole mess is a really big roller coaster. And I want to get off.

Beauty in the morning

You wake up late, jump out of bed and into the bath, get dressed in a jiffy, miss your train, make it to work just in time, tackle boorish colleagues, slump in your seat and switch on some music wondering what the rest of the day is going to bring... and you hear "A long December, and there's reason to believe, maybe this year will be better than the last" ... and all the stress just melts away.

After INXS with Rockstar, its Tommy Lee's turn to join the growing list of sellouts. Tommy is going to college at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. Who's next?

A lot happened last week

Went to Hyderabad to meet a few companies and more importantly, to attend the Infosys Analyst Meet. An impressive full day event that saw the entire investment fraternity flock to the Gachibowli campus at Hyderabad, it was a good opportunity to hear the heads of various business units talk about the state of affairs, and to rub shoulders with the Infosys top brass, including Mr. Narayan Murthy and Nandan Nilekani. Mr. Murthy introduced us to Hafeez Contractor, who is designing a set of pretty futuristic campuses for Infosys. If they turn out to be anything like the proposed design, Bangalore will have yet another tourist spot.

Got back to Mumbai late Friday night, and slept away through most of Saturday. Sunday morning brought horror, with the murder of a young Manipuri girl in broad daylight at the Gateway of India. 58 years of independence and yet there is no place where you can feel safe.

Back to the gym

I've joined a gym again(yeah, I was lazy the last time around), and I must say that I've never enjoyed a workout more. Stretched muscles I never knew existed. May the Powers grant me the will to continue!
