Dec 2009: Looking back, looking forward

The last month of the year is usually slower than the rest of the year - unless you have quite a way to go in meeting year-end targets :-) . We think it is the winter or the holidays, which slow things down. This gives time to reflect on the near past - usually the year; and an opportunity to plan for the future.

Looking back at the year 2009 - we had unexpected changes and losses mid-year. We had to cancel on our vacation plan. Now, after 6 months, we think that we took this very well, and are again back to business. We did feel like we were in the middle of a twister when adapting to the new environment. Now things seem to be falling in place - bit by bit.

For the year ahead, we hope to see greater things and maybe, a vacation.

Continuing to share pictures, here is one of ours at Chilli's in Bangalore on Christmas Day.

Wish you all a very Happy New Year!
- Uma and Saurav.

November: Season for thanksgiving

There are quite a bunch of updates to share with you. First, Uma now has a job at IBM. She started on the 9th. This has also meant a slight adjustment of our daily schedules. 11th was our anniversary. We spent an evening out on the 12th celebrating our anniversary. Here is a picture from the dinner that evening.

On the 21st, we partied at Abeer's (our friend Saleem and Nazneen's daughter) birthday party. A few pictures from that day and a video.

26th is Thanksgiving in the USA. With all the good things this time, we thank God and everybody for this.

Washington DC, Cherry Blossom Festival

It is Cherry Blossom Festival at Washington DC this spring. We drove down last weekend (4/4). It was a windy day as you can see from some of the pictures. Shebeen and family (Shahana, Ahshaan, Zaara) were with us on this trip.

Yaari.com got hold of my address book

Yesterday (3/25/2009), somebody sent me an invite to this networking site (Yaari.com), and as I started to explore what this is about, the website got hold of my address book and has sent an invite automatically to everyone in my address book.

My suggestion is keep away from it.

I was later shown this Blog entry - Yaari, Social Network or International Scam? - should have read it earlier. Spreading the news to my friends through this blog.
