Ede tumbi haaDuvenu!

Today's telecast of ede tumbi haaDuvenu took me to my old world. It was about my favorite poet K S Narasimha Swamy. It was very interesting to learn how this great person became poet. It took me back to my dream world and I am still floating in it. I hope the feelings last long!

"Back to School" after a decade!

I was really skeptical if I was ever going to enjoy class room again, I was totally taken by surprise. It was an awesome experience sitting in class and listening to the extremely tallented professors. There was no dull moment!
Of course I am talking about my MBL contact classes. Those professors are extremely talented in their fields and they kept entire class of 150+, completely inhomogeneous audience glued to their seats. I didn't realize the time at all. Class was full of young to old people with most of the crowd from non-law background. It was quite interesting and well spend 1.5 days.

A Quick Decision

Last Friday I enrolled for Master in Business Law course at National Law School of India University, Distance Education Department. I hardly had time to decide. I came to know about it from my colleague Avinash on Thursday. Friday was the last date for enrollment with fine! Just filled the form, paid the fee and thats it.
My another colleague Satya has been inspiring me on 'Business' and I too had been planning to do something related to Business. I could not afford a big hole in my pocket. When I went through the syllabus of MBL, I felt at least it will improve my general awareness. I don't expect it to change my career, but you never know. Either way, it is no harm.
I have spent a decade of professional life, not really trying to do anything big. Let this decade be the crazy one. The least thing I expect is the satisfaction that at least I tried.

Operation Fitness

This is my second innings towards fitness. I should say I was fairly fit during 2008. Post 2009 I started skipping work outs and put on weight. Stress, no work out and tension impacted adversely on my fitness. 
After my mother went to London to visit my sister, my culinary skills took care of my food intake and I started loosing my waste line by a thread. I felt good about it. Recently, I started to go on long walks in mornings, but my laziness ensured this routine is not regular.
Today, after noon I just decided to go on one such walks. I walked and walked and walked for about 2 hours. It started raining, still I kept walking. A sardar gentleman stopped his car and asked me if I wanted lift... Wow, I felt happy that world still has some goodness in it and I thanked him for the offer and told I preferred to walk.
After sometime, I got bored of walking. I took a bus to return. I checked in google maps and realize that I had walked for about 8km. Not a bad way to kill a Saturday!!

My plans!

I always wanted to travel around. I used to go on trekking and travel with friends. Something inside me was still not satisfied.
So after a lot of thought, I became a member of Youth Hostel Association of India. And, I have signed up for National Himalayan Winter Trekking Expedition to Dalhousie. My cousin Madhu prompted me to take this action and I think I did a good thing.
The plan is to make this as economical as possible, so we are going by train and as much as possible will travel in second sleeper class. I have signed up for Dec 25th batch. While returning, we are planning to visit either Jammu or Amritsar. We are still debating.
A new desire is making rounds in my mind. How about biking trip in Goa arranged by YHA!! I will have to buy a bicycle and train myself. Let me see how I execute it.
Of course there are family trips lined up for Tirupati and Kukke Subramanya etc.

Welcome back to Digital self

I feel good to be back to my digital self. I don't want to crib... ok, thats it.

First of all, I became father! And My son and I share the birthday, that means my son was born on the same day I was born!! I should tell we did not go against nature for this to happen. That is kind of unique and cool.
I lost my grand mother 4 days after my son was born. That upset me for quite sometime. I relocated to Rajarajeshwari Nagar for various reasons. So life is not the same.
Mom has travelled to London to visit my sister, wife at her mother's place, so I am home alone most of the times. I enjoyed cooking, watching movies, playing with my son and retrospecting.
Now that my mother is returning next week, I will not have to cook, retrospect etc. So I get lot of time to play with my son and do something that I had always been wanting to do.
