I realize the time has come to close down this blog. I have been in Brazil for the last 3 months, by myself without the family, with lots of free time.
And if that does not make me feel like writing, nothing will.
Like all other things with me, this will be something I started, but did not finish.

Summer is finally over and the mercury has dropped down a bit. I hope to never again experience 45 degrees, but who knows. I guess I've had all the biryani I could, time to move out of Hyderabad. Will definitely try hard to not spend another summer in the city.
As of now, enjoying the monsoon, before the traffic jams and the waterlogging starts. Complaints, complaints

One more blog

The blogging bug has bit the wife. She has now started her own blog to write about her experiences in raising our daughter, which she hopes to present it to her someday. let's see how long that lasts. Considering that the wife is even lazier than I am , I would be surprised if this new venture lasts long.
All the best to her anyways !!!

No time for blogging. Need to find more interesting topics to write about. This place has turned into a personal diary. But with Diti around, guess posts are gonna be slow for some more time.

Another Diwali has come and gone. Could not go to mumbai, haven''t been there for diwali in 6 years. The japanese study has gone nowhere. This blog sounds like a personal diary. Thinking of starting another one to rant about politics in India. Think it might be interesting to note "Breaking News" that loses steam in 3 hours or so.
Still waiting to register the car and get my driver's license. It would have been nice if I could have blogged about this entire process, but procrastination is always the enemy. Getting ready for the hospital trip next month. Hope all goes well.

Another regular weekend

Nothing much happening these days. Spent another weekend at home, setting up the new apartment. Lots of work to be done, but too lazy to do anything. The Japanese lessons are not going anywhere, need to pick up if I am to give the exams in december.
Was out to the research center in Hyderabad to say farewell to one of the wifey's friends who is leaving for Japan. Hence the sudden urgency to learn japanese. Let's hope i finsh the alphabet and Kanji by the end of this month. Then to get on with the vocabulary.
This blog seems to be turning into nothing more than a personal diary. Need to take a new direction and start one which is more general in scope. Will try harder.

Nihongo @ Microsoft

Had a visit to the Microsoft campus in Hyderabad today. We were invited by a couple who Minako met throught the online japanese community site in Hyderabad. The campus is unbelievably huge, money has clearly been well spent. It's got a football field, basket ball court and a cricket pitch amongst other things.Even the canteen has a subway sandwich kiosk.
Most of the conversation was in Japanese, and although the wife was happy, I was a bit embarassed at not being able to speak much. Need to put some effort in learning the language, it's long overdue.
