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 6 years ago, I was complaining to Radhika that I have still got time on my hand (despite a 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 the year 2012 (a week before I joined 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 (see the cover page pic), my work, fun, movies, adventure, travel, photography, spirituality, happiness, and anything that compels me to write or document something interesting out there, once every 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 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 have also stopped reading newspapers. I log in to social media only to post something but spend very little time on consuming stuff on social media. My kids are getting older and are in “leave me alone” phase and are self-sufficient, and Radhika on yoga and seva mission. Also, most of the domestic stuff in India has been 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 with in your life too. Life is not fair and perfect for 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 at work. Yes, I deal with similar ‘crap’ you are dealing with too :-). I am blessed to have the support of friends and family like yourself, to laugh at the ‘crap’
