ALONG CAME OCTOBER

Hi,

Its been a while since I last blogged. No particular reason, perhaps I was lazy; lazy to blog. Honestly, I have been more than active on facebook & have just taken a liking to twitter. But from February, when I last blogged, to October, many things of international, national, local & personal importance have taken place. An afro-American is the President in the United States of America, the UPA came back to power in India, the fringe groups have a free run of my hometown & my wife & I have had twins!

Daniel Luke & Lisa Maria arrived, a little ahead of time, on June 18th 2009. Daniel came out into this beautiful world at 10.46 a.m. (local time) and Lisa a minute later. They are 3 months old now and have become the center of attention ever since they arrived. My wife Ann and I knew that we would be having twins, but we weren’t told their sex. Imagine our joy and surprise when they arrived. We had waited too long for this gift of life!

A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bankroll smaller, home happier, clothes shabbier, the past forgotten, and the future worth living for!

Daniel & Lisa are coming along fine and each day is a new learning experience both for them and us.

On the work front, I have been busy teaching. And this time I had the opportunity to teach Financial Management to starry eyed youngsters at Symbiosis Institute of Business Management, Bangalore. I enjoyed the stint. Some of the students were brilliant, some had to be prodded along & a few lost the script! Life’s tough & it just got tougher for the younger generation with recession and all that follows it. As I write this blog, I am hopeful that the economies of the world will recover and life will be easier in the days to come!

I promise to be back with my blogs; a few are in the pipeline and should be ready for publication soon.

Until then, good bye & take care!
