Last few months have been very busy. Here is a long pending update.

Saatvik: Yogitha and I are blessed with a baby boy. Saatvik was born on May 26th and he is nearly 7 weeks old now. They say that it is much easier with second kid. It sure is.

Keerthana: Keerthana is 3y 4m now and she started going to school. She must be enjoying it as she happily goes to school without complaints. She is taking a while to get adjusted to the addition to the family though.

Yogitha: Yogitha quit HP and is taking a break now. She will figure out what interests to pursue once Saatvik is a few months old.

Myself: Moved to Flipkart few months ago. I am into Analytics. To put it in a nut shell, Flipkart is aiming to become the of India. We are still very small but we have the potential to change the face of retail in India. I am enjoying my work and like the culture at Flipkart very much.

That is all for now.

Looking for a school for Kittu

Pallavi had a post about tests and interviews for admitting her niece in a school and I commented about my experience.

Words of Wisdom

"If you want to be the best tennis player in the world, you may start out trying and soon find out that it's hopeless—that other people blow right by you. However, if you want to become the best plumbing contractor in Bemidji, that is probably doable by two-thirds of you. It takes a will. It takes intelligence. But after a while, you'd gradually know all about the plumbing business in Bemidji and master the art. That is an attainable objective, given enough discipline. And people who could never win a chess tournament or stand in center court in a respectable tennis tournament can rise quite high in life by slowly developing a circle of competence—which results partly from what they were born with and partly from what they slowly develop through work."

An interesting conversation with Kittu

Even though Kittu's grandparents keep raving about every little thing that she says, Old Lady and I assume that those things are typical of a two year old and thats how kids are. That said I can't help but share this one:

Kittu was sweeping the floor with a broom and the following conversation ensued:

Grandma: "Kittu will you grow up to be a home maker like me, cleaning up the house, cooking food and doing dishes or will you grow up to be like your Mom and go to office"

Kittu: "Hmmm... Hmmm... I don't know yet. I will know later"

PS: Found an interesting TED talk about kids and creativity.
