Mumbai Under Water

Mumbai is recovering fast from the downpour two days ago. You may want to see pics of it at flickr.

It took me two days to come back home, but I'm fine. Thanks everyone for those mails. Everyone I know is fine too. I hope everyone you know is fine.

Not Jobless Anymore

I just picked up my offer letter from HSBC Asset Management yesterday, for the position of Executive - Web Design.

I still get to continue doing my freelance projects as I was, though an immediate slow-down is inevitable. I've been doing it for more than two years now, and simply quitting would be impossible.

I am still to settle down at the new job with the new work timings (I'll actually have to get up in the morning), new bunch of work-related problems (for starters, I'll have to make an hour long train commute to work everyday) and new dress code (I understand I can't code in my underwear anymore). I start the routine on Monday.

I hope this means that I'll get a lot more time at hand to do more reading (my feed reader indicates that I have more than 4000 unread items in my box), and writing (and you thought I had plans to wrap up this blog soon). I will also hopefully get more material on and exposure to real-world web-based issues.

Anyway, for now, it's time for celebrations. Time for hitting that bottle of beer. Again. After all, it's a new excuse.
