A Trip to Shilparamam Exhibition

It’s an arts and crafts village and having opened in 1998, it was the first time ever that I made a trip to Shilparamam. Though I had been coming on and off to the city of Hyderabad during my decade long stay in Singapore, a trip to the Shilparamam exhibition was never on my mind…

Return to India after living abroad for years

3 months ago, I was supposed to write a series of posts on how I handled the return to India after having lived and worked in Singapore for more than a decade.  My career started with working in a company in India for about 3 years.  Going to work in the US was always the…

2 months hence

What have i been doing in India 2 months since coming back from Singapore?  Studying, taking a break from work at the same time.  But things are still as busy as when i was in Singapore. Have suffered one of my worst summer in a decade.  Its always 40-42 degrees daily and i suffer the…

Its been a week

A quick update…Its been a hectic one week for me here in India.  The speed of this place is simply mind boggling.  Trust me, Singapore seems to be very much laid back compared to Hyderabad now.  Did anyone say that Hyderabad had a easy-go nawabi culture?

2011 – A Recap

A bit late into the year, but its always better late than never. Its been a practise i have followed for the past 3 years, so here it goes. Moved to another department in the company. Got a salary hike, a higher position and not to mention work related stress. Attended a weeklong ISMS course…

Year End Travel – Christmas 2011

Lots of cakes, cookies, appam, stew, hyderabadi biryani and the…
