Aaaahhhhhh!!! Nostalgia!

Its a solid 4 months since i had worked in delphi.
as a consolation, installed d7 back into my machine ...
and oh boy!!! what a feel it is to see the delphi ide.
brings back all those nostalgic memories of the good ol' days.

yet, it leaves me with a heavy heart to see what delphi
has become off late.

Office, Bangalore
3rd March 2005

Sara joined in today. poor fellow, putting myself in his shoes, i can sense his despair on the first day. am leaving this place, he's getting back to hands on coding after awhile and this whole new enviroment is all alien for him, coming from more action packed environs. i wish but can't help him in any ways other than being there for him when he needs me and to provide a smooth beginning and paving ways for his betterment!!!

How i wish to have had him in my new team! Well, aren't things after all been driven by murphy's laws??!!

Oh coming to Reiki, the thoughts of it were triggered as i was thinking about ravi and our conversation earlier last weekend. Somehow, am getting fascinated and interested to know more of Reiki and to check out what it has to offer!

So i went on to check out reiki on google, and this is what i hit upon! Bold and Big, in the first prominent search result on reiki. read on...

Just for today, do not worry.
Just for today, do not anger.
Honor your parents, teachers, and elders.
Earn your living honestly.
Show gratitude to everything.

Dr. Mikao Usui

What a beautiful thing!

I Certainly am delving into Reiki.

Celebrations and a loooonnnnnggggggg chat

25th Feb 2005
Pinxx, Manipal Center, Bangalore
All of Tarka, sriram, jayashree, ravi and me!

Nice(?) dinner with the small group, celebrating the first year of
of Tarka and the release of SimplEX, maiden product offering from

Two Surprises at the venue:
a. Pinxx turned out to be an continental joint
b. The Presence of a blr magician, to entertain us with a bunch of his magic puzzles

Sriram(?), Ravi(?), Me and Murthy, solved one puzzle each, after a mug of beer!
Funny thing, our brains were so rusted, i had to take out a paper and draw out the solution,
before solving the puzzle. (forming a T of 4 broken pieces)

Ended up with a western/continental platter of dishes for dinner (Whew, man, isn't it
stupid to taste westernized indian food, paying a western bill, sitting right in heart of
india???) As usual, it can happen ONLY in india.

We had a nice time later that evening, me and sriram, stayed back and what started
as an usual discussion went on and on, across various topics well over midnight.
it was almost 1am, by the time we said our byes.

A Good small get together, which proved to energise me for the next few days. :)

A Different Time, A Different Place

Its almost another month, since i've updated my blog.

and this new one month has taken me to new places, with new happenings and new situations!!!
This trip to london came up quick and after a few nail biting moments, i got my visa stamped, on
one single page left out in my passport (getting an additional book would have taken atleast another 10/15 days
which would've meant the cancellation of this trip!), and with the invite letter arriving just after a weeks' delay,
(by then, the i'd almost given up the prospects of making this trip at all!!!)

And man, i get the visa, a day earlier than expected - and with a quick re-scheduling of the tickets,
was lucky enough to get them confirmed for the next day - and i did leave the next morning - dirty, quick and

and what a start it was!!!
I Got Sick..., just the night before - undigestion and throwing up... terrible feeling!!!

Pushed thru the trip, in the morning, with mum and dad terribly worried!
by Gods grace, thankfully, things started improving... over the days.
Thanks to all the medicines mum had packed up, and the first two days of starved stomach, with
a lot of prayers!

Man, being sick could have such unpleasent effects! whew!
both physically and more mentally!

But again, it was great time to be in london again, after almost an year and a half.

More on the london adventures later...
