About Me

My Mission:  In the pursuit of memorable and meaningful Life.

Only quote you need this life :  Be good, for your own good

Why Blogging  ?  About 5 years ago, I was complaining to Radhika that I have still got time on my hand (despite busy schedule at AppLabs, as I do not watch TV) and that I need a hobby. She had suggested me to write a blog. Finally, I was able to start blogging some time in year 2012 (a week before I jointed Cigniti), and have started becoming active in 2013.  Now, I blog once a week, every weekend.

What is this blog about ? My blog is pretty much about ‘nothing‘ or pretty much about ‘everything‘ out there too.  I often write about food, family, fun, movies, adventure, travel, photography, spirituality, happiness, and anything that compels me to write or document something interesting out there, once in a weekend.  I am constantly searching for opportunities for some events to celebrate all the time.  I try to process my videos and images within 24 hours of any event.  That is my own personal SLA.  Some may call it as as good OCD to have

How do I get time ?    I mostly blog on the weekends or when I am on the road / air / water (which is quite often last several years).  I also find plenty of free time on hand, as we pulled cable TV connection for about 12 years.  I also do not watch NFL, NBA, NCAA, ICC, Wimbledon, all forms of cricket / other sports events, except if it’s a final game, and most talked event on the planet (like I watched India play SA at MCG in Melbourne).  I also stopped reading newspapers.  I login to social media to post something, but spend time on consuming stuff on social media.  My kids are getting older and are in “leave me alone” phase and are self sufficient.  Also, most of the domestic stuff in India can be outsourced.  So, I do not see many reasons for not getting enough time to do

Is life fair and perfect with me ?  Some folks say to me, “Sai, I am so jealous of you. You have so much time, and your life seems to be picture perfect“. I do have the similar challenges that you might be dealing in your life too. Life is not fair and perfect to anyone.  I am only doing best to make a lemonade, whenever life gives me a lemon.  I take life, one event at a time in my personal life, and one e-mail at a time when I am work.  Yes, I deal with similar ‘crap’ you are dealing with too :-).  I am blessed to have support of friends and family like yourself.

Nothing more than that.

  1. Sai,
    Just came across your blog from your email. Its great to know more about Life work Balance in some of your articles. Time is most important thing for most of us but when you prioritise things it should be possible. I’m into meditation and my wife Vani into yoga. Thanks about some of the websites which i did not knew before. Keep posting.
