Happy Holidays


Wish you all happy & prosperous New Year.Its time to write almost last entry for this year.

For quite a while was thinking to write about 2005 year diary. Hmm............not able to write with this dull and grey sky and no need to mention the cold at Paris but wait............ seems some ray of light is trying to reach my desk which I do not want to loose, hope that will keep my spirit high while writing this.

2005 started with the longest vacation I ever had so far in my career. It was six week India trip and an escape from cold Europe. It was not a vacation after all, as my younger brother was getting married.

Coming back to Paris we did traveled as-usual in the first half.We have been to Germany, Austria, Spain and Portugal.It was superb with excellent weather and good food.
Pamela did a great job which I was not able to accomplish from quite a long. She made sure my parents visit Paris. And yes...they did came in mid-August for 4 weeks. Organizing their first trip abroad was not perfect; starting with floods in Mumbai, not able to get cheap tickets & with delayed baggage service by airlines in Paris etc. But at the end hope they had good time in Paris.

We celebrated Pooja and Diwali this year at Maison de l'Inde. And yes, one more thing not to forget... in-spite of my disliking of France & French, I ended up joining French class.

Being crazy did major change to this web site. Anywayz, this holiday season is highlight with visit to Vedanta Society at Gretz. Need to see how I end up this year.

Once again best wishes and keep visiting.

Thank God its Friday


It has been a while I wrote any post. Well, after quite a long time I met with Tapas a good old friend from Bay Area. The meeting was short while having dinner at our place; got some updates on other friends in Bay Area.

Yesterday, was last French class before 2 week vacations so we went out for drinks after the class. I never had this kind of social events where you have to speak in French and you are not ashamed of your mistakes. It was good as all others did not started conversing in English though the french language was butchered like anything. It was fun; returned home late night :( . Well, need to finish lots of homeworks and revise the course now or chance of passing the exam is bleak

The big reason for writing today is about the comment I got - if I am selling my TIBX shoe laces or not? Well the whole idea of writing that post came to me when I read the news of Intel offering $10K for Dr.Moore’s paper published in Electronics Magazine 40 years ago.
