So, its been a long time since the last time I posted. For those handful of people who might have noticed. However, in the intervening time, life did go on. Here's a quick summary of things I got up to.
1. I switched from listening to and following commercial bands to getting into Indie music, more specifically Indian Independant music. The genre's are as numerous as you can imagine, however the talent on offer is unbelievable. Coupled with the ability to view most of these bands at music festivals that happen from time to time, like the NH7 Weekender (personal fav), and being able to follow these bands on the internet and soundcloud, makes for very entertaining and musically satisfying times. I must list out the bands that I follow as the subject of a later post. Remind me. No don't.
2. I switched professions from being a professional software programmer and techie to leading service delivery at a technology company (been a year now). The transition, while difficult, continues to give me a lot of pleasure watching my work make a difference in the real world, and leading and grooming a team of engineers that help me achieve it.
3. I got into a relationship, that sadly, did not work out and crashed and burned. The reasons/faults etc are things I will not go into. They are not for the interwebs, they are only for us to know and deal with. The resulting turmoil, I am glad to say, peaked a few months back, and has now become like a lingering ache that although isn't going away, isn't breaking me down either. It was bad, quite earth shatteringly so, to be honest, and walking away from it was possibly the toughest thing I have ever done. Still standing, though. That has to count for something.
4. I'm 34 this year, a tambrahm single boy, well employed, not too ugly looking fellow that is still not hitched to a nice, eligible girl. Not for lack of trying on my part, however a clear case of lack of succeeding for sure. The Parents are trying too, but I'm not ready to leave this to them, no matter how well networked the mami-mafia may be in these matters.
5. I sold my Kawasaki Ninja 650, and bought a Ducati Scrambler. Effectively choosing the scrambler lifestyle that goes along with it. This lifestyle is simply a ride everywhere, explore, chill, let your inner child take a stroll through your life kinda deal. It's working out fine, and honestly I picked the right motorcycle for my life.
Thats that for now, you're all caught up. Seeya sometime later.
