Introducing Preethi

with 6 comments

The end of this week would see me getting pushed out of the Bachelor’s hut, loosing the degree, and being dubbed as a “family man”. I am not quite sure what that means and what is in store, but like the billions of others who walked down the same road, have decided to give it a try ;).

I will be marrying Preethi on Sunday (a week from now), and since today also doubles up as her birthday (English Calendar) thought this was as good a time as any to write a short intro about her. She loves writing, reading, listening to music and singing. One thought that she is a good singer, though not in the same league as yours truly ;). She is also a talented blogger, and here is the link to her blog. There you can read her posts and her poems. At this point of time, her blog has more clicks (visitors) than mine, and that is something I need to work upon, and quite fast at that. Hey, someone having a copy of “Become a better blogger in 21 days” handy? :)

The only thing missing from that rather modest resume is the “art of cooking” and I would advice her to learn that ASAP, so that I don’t starve in the future. The alternative would be to learn it myself, something most of the married guys are advising me strongly about. Just kidding, guys!

She has secured her transfer to Chennai from Mumbai, and so both of us would rejoin office in Chennai on Tue, 03-Oct-06. Her office is at Nandanam, and so is quite near to my place.

So, I am expecting to see most of you at Mumbai over the weekend to join the celebration.

The Month That Was – June ’06

leave a comment »

June is a month that I would like to forget for I was sick for most of this period. The running around for the engagement preparation and the countless hours at work and outside had taken its toll on my body, immediately after the engagement. In fact, looking back at the engagement snaps taken during the late evening, I can see that I was visibly tired!

But I would like to remember this month for the first week of June, when Preethi was around in Chennai, and we managed to go watch Fanaa (a waste of a movie except for a couple of good songs) at my weekly outing place (Satyam Theatres), and got to visit the Besant Nagar beach twice.

Apart from that all I remember is the countless tablets I gulped down and the countless glasses of the thing I hate most — Kurumulagu Rasam — that I drank to ward off the seemingly invincible cold and throat pain that just refused to go away! By the end of the month I had conquered the worst cold I had ever experienced, but my system had taken quite a knock, forcing me to loose some weight (at last)!

Of course, I also remember this month for the great German run at the Fifa World Cup! To me, they along with Argentina were the teams of the World Cup, though France sprang back to life late in the competition.

The Month That Was – Apr ’06

leave a comment »

As promised I would like to rush through my life over the last five months. April was a month that I would remember as the one that brought Preethi (who is my would-be and who would be my wife in a week :) into my life. It was also a damn hectic month with the usual running around for the new flat, some interesting (read demanding in terms of time) assignments at work, and also the first flight of my life (to Pune)! So, at last I proved that any idiot can fly, thanks to Air Deccan!
