I’ve led an eventful life and post retirement I’m raring to go. You’ll read about the crazy stuff I do here . If you feel a chord of empathy or inspiration do hit the like button. I’d love it if you drop a comment and do feel free to share.

I love to write about my travels, my encounters with spiritualism and outlandish stuff on hiking trails and cycling paths and a tip or two to budding corporate executives. Lurking some where within me is a mentor and coach.

I’ve published a couple of books and I’m passionately engaged in writing the next one.

I started this blog way back in 2006 but all that is the past and I’ve swept it into the realm of distant memories. The future beckons now and as I said I’m raring to go. Read the old stuff if you feel inclined I’m nostalgic about it.

  1. Dear Sir, I came to this blog by accident and read the HRL story. I still remember the story on the service engineer from Canon (from your pre-hcl days) that you had told us when talking about customer satisfaction.

  2. Hello, sir. i founded your blog while i was preparing for the SGM (Soka Gakkai Malaysia) district discussion meeting study about (Strong Prayer and Determination), and the passage of “Ode to Josei Toda” was a good reference to me. At least i get to heard the opinion of other person comment on the impression of reading the “Human Revolution”. Thanks again.

  3. Dear Sir,

    I accidentally came across your article about your introduction to Buddhism. I am a practising member as well. There is something I would like to ask you. But I prefer doing so via email. I would be grateful if you could provide me with your email id.

    1. Hello Eric, Thank you for stopping by at my blog. No I dont use filters. In fact for some of the snaps taken on a trek to the Himalayas I just used an inexpensive mobile phone camera as I didn’t want to carry a bulky D-SLR.Some of the colours may have been on account of the play of lights on the mountains. I do use simple editing tools such as those available on Picasa including the use of graded filters . Glad you liked the photos . Will check out your blog too.

  5. Dear sir, I’m currently trying to document my lineage and family history from North Malabar and would love to talk to your further about it. Please let me know how I can get in touch with you.
