One Sunday Morning

It promises to be another very hot day, I have been following a nest of a Red Vented Bulbul for a past few days, though I never fancy my camera as one to take bird photographs but here are 9 pictures taken around our home of other birds, was lucky enough to shoot a Paradise […]


This week has been one of the fastest week of the year. Most importantly I feel that I have successfully extracted myself from the quagmire of my “late quarter life crisis” which I have been wallowing in for past few months. Thanks to Swati who gave me the rather melodramatic mantra “You can’t be a […]

My rant on PHP

Learning PHP is easy anyone can do it over a few hours on a Sunday afternoon. That was one of the primary goal of creating PHP and has been very successfully achieved. Today everyone and their cousin twice removed can write PHP. Combine that with sites like sourceforge and freshmeat and you have got phenomenal […]

The weekend was…

Rather than crib about Monday I am relishing the sweet after taste of a wonderful weekend. Saturday was amazing – for the first time I did something I never did before. Despite being in-station I did not go to office! Not even once did I step across to see whats on in the lab or […]

Till boredom do us apart ;)

It was summer of 1991, they were young, both of them heartbroken. Her boyfriend had copped the excuse “I love you, but I can’t marry you”, his girlfriend a bit less pathetic said “I love you but I love my dad more”. Oh! yes they were very good friends. So they would sit through evenings […]

Published Again!

The only sunny spot in an otherwise hazy start to the week is that my article “Doing Distance Calculations in PHP” has been published in php|architect. The editor liked the stuff I wrote so much that my article has been made the showcase (read free download) article, must say a kind editor that one. Before […]
