How time flies.
It has been more than three months that I have scribbled something here, and yes, how time flies. So much has been happening in the last hundred days.
(Yes, it is around hundred days that I have posted something here).
The New Year started on a peaceful note, with a calm night at the home to welcome the New Year. So much unlike the previous years, where inevitably I would be totally inebriated and amidst high volume cacophony (yes that is how it seems now!) ringing in the New Year. This year, it was a calm evening dinner and reading at home, and then the customary cake cutting at the stroke of midnight. Yes, this is how it is now. A calm welcome to the days to come.
Post the New Year beginning though has been a mad rush. I was on a long leave for three weeks, away from office, on a personal assignment. I got Married.
The journey home itself was quite memorable with the flight to Vizag getting delayed by more than 4 hours, and we having two cabinet level ministers in the airplane for company. One of them happens to be the Civil Aviation Minister himself. It could not get more ironic. It showed how everyone is equal in front of nature. What possibly can be done on a foggy morning?
I did indulge in some small talk, and on learning that the reason of their visit is to open the new IIM at Vizag, it did lead to some thought provoking conversation with the HRD Minister. Quite an eventful flight to begin the wedding celebrations.
The traditional band-baaaja welcome at home and running the last minute errands amidst a whole lot of guests made the celebrations even grander. No wonder time just flew.
Sunday, 25th January 2015, I got domesticated. I got married to Ankana Priyam.
Post the wedding, after a couple of days at home (Vizag and the Pune), we flew away on our beachside honeymoon trip to Maldives. The short trip to the pristine beaches made us realize once again the hidden beauty in the amazing planet that we live in.
Post the romantic getaway, we paid our respects and seeked blessing from the lord of the seven Hills, at Tirumala.
Three weeks done. We are back to Gurgaon, back to normal life.
