Fake Stories of Success and Recovery

I've done this many times before, and today I was at it again. I have a compulsive need to search for effective ways to treat or manage anxiety. I've been doing this for almost 10 years now.

Searching the web, I've read more articles and blog posts about anxiety than I can remember. I've read hundreds of success stories of people who apparently fought their way out of the mess that is anxiety and related disorders.

Getting nostalgic about... nostalgia!

It started when I was in college. By this time of the year, right around Diwali, a strangely nostalgic feeling would come over me. I could never point out what was I really getting nostalgic about, but I felt it anyway. It was poignant, as all nostalgia is, but it was also something else. It was beautiful.

Song Memories

I feel a really good blog post coming on and I'd better write it down before it fades away like a dream does after you wake up.

A Forgotten Picture

I would like to show a picture that I clicked more than 6 years ago using a smartphone camera. The phone was a Nokia E63, that was very closely a Blackberry knock-off. It was a very good phone of its time and I have good memories of it.

Back Home!

Well, a much delayed announcement as I've been back home for about three weeks now. 
Dubai was nice, overall anyway. But I was rather busy the most of the time, and lazy while I wasn't while I was there. That explains why I didn't even add a second post about my 'experience' in Dubai. No excuses, just plain lazy. I spent much of my free time watching YouTube and TV.
I went around a little bit and saw some nice things and places, though. Here's a link to my Google photos album if you'd like to see some photos. Dubai and Abu Dhabi

The Dubai Experience

Hello Everyone! :-)
I am in Dubai these days. Arrived here in the last week of July on a 2-month work-related visit. Out of the country (and my comfort zone), it has been an interesting experience so far. 

Having heard of Dubai's glamour and all things flashy, I'm finally getting to see the real Dubai as a commoner. Well, on the ground the picture isn't quite as colourful as tourism promotion commercials would have you believe. It's a city like any other: lots of super-markets and malls, well-built roads and pavements, buildings packed as close as possible, and huge crowds of hardworking common men and women going about their daily lives.
