Times when I wanted to blog in the last few months

I wanted to write every time I have traveled - been to Andhra Pradesh in December; then went to Sunderbans (again, but this time purely for leisure) during Holi. Next week, we are off to a trek in Sikkim - hope to write a report as soon as we are back.

Wanted to vent out, whenever I have felt that India is too large and diverse a country to be managed as a unit. With all it's history of never being managed by a single ruler / dynasty for a long time, and the recent affairs of home grown insurgencies, I seriously feel India as a country is probably not feasible in the long run. More of it when I have the time.

Every time I felt low at work. That's not too many times, considering I only feel low at work when someone tries to back stab me, and when people are ungrateful. Like recently, when a person I personally groomed for a future position for over a month got the promotion, and then left the organization within four months - such a bad investment. Anyway, I also wanted to write when things were good - when each person I groom gets the promotion, when ideas we act on gets implemented and appreciated, when my team does something that gets the recognition - you know, the intangible rewards of doing things well.

More later... let me enjoy a rare off at home - today is the Bengali New Year and I wish everyone Subho Nabo Borsho!

Along with the chai, we are also offering sandwiches and mini pizzas. Of course, every meal, no matter how small, has a dessert to end it :)
Nice marketing, no?
