Curtains

So much has happened in this year alone.
Its given me so much of food for thought and a drastic change in desires & responsibilities.

I thirst for different things.
Time has become priority.
Profession needs to take a back seat for a while I guess.
Health is under a special focus - for those I love & dear to me.
Some new friends and stronger bonds forged.
A new city - not like the old love it was.
Strands of grey - I love them.
Fewer blog posts, more drafts.
More pictures and lesser  comments.
More awareness than top of mind recall.
Have grown a thicker skin and a lighter vein (non sarcastic).
I traveled little & day dreamed a lot more.

Hope 2015 has more positives
Until then. Adios

Rear view records

If I say a lot happened this year it will be quite the understatement of sorts. 
Life took all kinds of turns around bends that could give anyone a heart attack and also had its share of astronomical highs that one had never anticipated. If you saw a number 9 of the Indian cricket team score a ton in a test last week, my life felt the same too. Although, the speed at which it came was akin to a ton in a T20. 
Never been the one to complain but this year seemed to be one of the toughest in terms of a million things such as the health of loved ones. However, it was one of the best years of my life too when you see all that the universe conspired to throw at me.
Not one to trust in religion, I have consistently believed that life's zeniths are not far behind from its dreariest lows. It reminds me of an old post that I wrote on up being the only way to go when you are at the bottom is up. That has been followed to tee and I am proud to say so.

Changes

The things that have changed in life ever since I moved far east.

I am no longer Akshay but AK. At restaurant reservation desks, client meetings, emails and receipts as well.Chopsticks are a part of kitchen cutlery and so is soy sauce a staple part of the diet.Officially an NRI now and that warrants an NRI account to be opened soon. Hate the tag.I have 700 unspent India rupees lying on the kitchen counter. Need to get rid of them before De-Moditisation takes toll on the 100sThe laptop and phone now keeps track of 5 times zones. DC, Melbourne, Qatar  & home of course.Mango pickle is a highly traded commodity.Local Indian store is on uber and saved places on maps.Shaving cream is on the endangered species list. Foam is challenger.I only cross (well mostly) at zebra crossings. Tagalog is getting added to a list of languages I know a smattering of.

Take Two

Its been a while.

Also two years that I left Mumbai memories behind to discover the other side of New Delhi.
To say I did not miss Mumbai will be as much as a lie as to say I do not love New Delhi more now.
I have the same list of things I would want to do here that I did almost two years earlier. I thought Mumbai was the obvious next step. Life had other plans.



Bombay from the office.
Lets see what Bombay throws at me this time.
