Long Time no Post!!

Hi all,
Sorry for not posting for some time now, but I was busy at HiPC, the International Conference on High Performance Computing, helping with registration. Made quite a few good friends there and hope to stay in touch with them (anyone listening!). Presently at home at Mankapur, a sleepy township near Lucknow, in the north Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.

Have quite a few stories to tell, how I nearly missed my flight to India from LA, what all happened in Bangkok and then in Bangalore and Delhi.. the snaps will be online as soon as I get back to LA. Till then, they are happily sitting in my laptop.

Next stop, Varanasi and ITBHU, my alma mater.. lets see what all is going on there!

and yes, a very merry christmas and a happy new year to all !

yours, truly

Leaving on a Jetplane

Finally, the moment has come.. in 8.5 hours time, a Thai Airways plane will take off from LA airport with me in it ... on the way to my motherland - India!

So, I won't be posting very frequently in the next month.. as I will be travelling, and internet speed may be an issue too.

Let's see if I meet any of YOU - my blog readers, in India.

Wish me luck!
P.S. more abt my journey later.

How my laptop made me clip my nails

This was coool... I realised that I had to finally clip my nails.. but the funny part is what made me do so!

I realised that typing on my new laptop (yes I bought one finally!) was getting increasingly painful with my nails making contact with the chicklet keys of the laptop's keyboard, which is very unlike a PC keyboard I realised.

So here I am, nails clipped, typing away at lightning speed :-) ... a laptop "does" change your life B-).

'Cut perks of MPs disrupting House'

The Times of India has a nice article about Cutting perks of MPs disrupting House. The 'house' here refers to the Indian parliament and MP = member of parliament.
With so many stupid politicians disrupting the works of the parliament, I think this is a real nice thing. I hope this bill makes it to law....

cannot stop laughing at the thought of the MPs stopping their friends from making a noise because their paycheck will also be affected =).

Long live democracy!
