We have had support and kindness from innumerable sources as we progressed through a tough & chaotic time. As we traversed through different contours. But we are here. And that’s what counts !
Colleagues. Friends. Mumbai. Bangalore. Family. Old neighbours. New neighbours. Tenants. Landlords. Classmates. Everybody! Stood firm and stood by. And we are greatfull.
So now…we have new house to live in. A new city to call home. A new set of smells, sights and sounds. A new set of colleagues & of course a brand new job! The list of ‘new’ keeps increasing. But certain things endure!
In the space between then and now many events / activities that could be posted here came and went. I have mental notes of them all. Will write about it someday. Some theme(s) / topic(s) include
