About

Vatsap? I started blogging in my second year at IIT (you can read my first blog-post ever – written on 06 Feb 2005).

I worked as a management consultant in India for few years after IIT. I was still pretty active at blogging – to the extent that Hindu did a feature on me in 2010.

In mid 2012, after my second promotion (to a Manager this time), I took a year long sabbatical to experiment with life. I never went back to the corporate world after that.

I soon married my then girlfriend (we had been dating for two years already). Few months later, we moved to Goa (early 2013). I have been in Goa since then.The marriage, well.. that’s a different story…

I make most of my money by making candid photographs in weddings (which also makes me travel across India – I hardly shoot much in Goa). I also make short documentary movies (started in mid 2014). That started purely as personal projects but over the years, I have graduated to regularly getting paid assignments to shoot and bring out amazing stories from across (mostly) India.

Working on that. How are you doing? Vatsap?

    ‘Shit’ is the word! I prefer calling it blogshit! πŸ˜› And that is exactly what I have to offer. If you find value in it, you are welcome. If you don’t, keep commenting anyways and keep coming back! Who knows, I might get serious about your suggestions and end up making you feel proud of me and my blog!

    By the way you told earlier that there already are worthy, significant n contributing stuffs happening all around! Why then do you have to keep landing in my shitty hourly update? I am sure you would like to answer that, won’t you?

  17. Hey, got here looking for comments on 10D Chennai- just moved into the city! Must say your comments section did keep me entertained while I waited for lunch hour πŸ™‚
    Cheers!

  18. There was this guy see.
    He wasn’t very bright and he reached his adult life without ever having learned “the facts”.
    Somehow, it gets to be his wedding day.
    While he is walking down the isle, his father tugs his sleeve and says,

    “Son, when you get to the hotel room…Call me”

    Hours later he gets to the hotel room with his beautiful blushing bride and he calls his father,

    “Dad, we are the hotel, what do I do?”

    “O.K. Son, listen up, take off your clothes and get in the bed, then she should take off her clothes and get in the bed, if not help her. Then either way, ah, call me”

    A few moments later…

    “Dad we took off our clothes and we are in the bed, what do I do?”

    O.K. Son, listen up. Move real close to her and she should move real close to you, and then… Ah, call me.”

    A few moments later…

    “DAD! WE TOOK OFF OUR CLOTHES, GOT IN THE BED AND MOVED REAL CLOSE, WHAT DO I DO???”

    “O.K. Son, Listen up, this is the most important part. Stick the long part of your body into the place where she goes to the bathroom.”

    A few moments later…

    “Dad, I’ve got my foot in the toilet, what do I do?”

  19. @ Biggoga’s “Where you are going to meet new year?”

    I’m going to meet New Year in my drawing room – in front of the TV! Would have loved to hang out with him in a pub or a disco too, but he’s a very introvert kinda person… likes to stay home!

    Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha !

  25. Hello,

    I was wondering if you accept guest post for your blog. If you do, I would like to submit a few. I’m a recent college graduate, with an English major, looking to build out my portfolio. I can write on a wide variety of topics and am sure you would be happy with the quality. Please email me back if you are interested. Thank you for your time.
