A Fresh Start

February 5th, 2008 · 18 Comments

It has been an extraordinarily long break from blogging. After six years of daily updates, I took a break last June-end, necessitated by a bout of influenza which left me bed-ridden for a couple weeks. Around the same time, work became very busy. Also, my son, Abhishek, (growing from 2 to 3 years) made sure that mornings and evenings were his time with me. And, I had just gotten bored of the format of one weekly Tech Talk series (which was becoming repetitive) and giving links to interesting articles. So, I stopped – hoping for a magical makeover and some inspiration! That never happened – until now.

This time around, I will blog more on what I think – rather than giving only the links. So, the posts will be less frequent, but hopefully more meaningful. I have also migrated the blog from MovableType to WordPress. All in all, time for a new beginning.

There’s lots to talk about, so let’s get started!

    Great to know this Rajesh.

    I have been a great admirer of your writings which contain something that is practical and applicable to India at large.

    Looking forward to learn more from you.

    I’m sure the posts would be much more useful.

    My wishlist: How to build scalable database web apps (where you can view, search and compare products, for example) for newbies like me! 🙂

    Wow – nice surprise … had stopped looking at this feed and just noticed you’re back! Would have loved to do an interview in Barcelona … fell ill last minute and only a camera and producer went!

    Congrats anyway and hope to bump into you soon.

    Welcome back, Rajesh!

    It was your blog that inspired me to start one of my own… And, I’m glad to hear that you’re back in action in an all-new, improved format!

    Thanks again,
