When I was in Engineering, I used to write poetry, generally in Hindi and sometimes in English. I also maintained a diary however with time I lost touch with both. I used to bore one of my very dear friend, Vijayant Thakur, with those poems. Yaar Vij! you have a lot of patience. 🙂

The way I remember few lines of one of my Hindi poem are here. Of course forgot the exact composition so trying to translate and write it in English here, keeping the crux. The following lines define where we are?

Heaven and Hell are ‘here and now’
The way you pass each moment
You define whether you are in Heaven or a Hell.

I sent the above poem for publishing in NCC magazine (I was in NCC in college). What happened to that poem and that diary, I do not recall now. Also, what are the next few lines, I do not remember that too. Its been more than 10 years. Oh! I remember its almost been a year I am writing blogs, I would take a small break from writing. Reason? I felt I am becoming addict to write blogs, so thought to check myself and see if I can control on myself.

In this post I would want to thank everyone who was the driving force for the past blogs (…and of course the readers too). Specially, Prof Lopez who was the driving force right from the beginning of blogging – Playing Golf, Work and Meditation to Business of Religion! Prof Mankad who always supported my blogging and shared many things (I wish I could record them), Prof Natarajan, Prof Moradian, Prof Ramkumar who inspired me to put some thoughts together. Thanks you Akshat and Ramanan (Six sigma failed… not in reality but in the class simulation). KR (Kaushik Ramchandran) for suggesting and encouraging to continue writing.

… and I am defining the time I invested with you – HEAVEN :).

Heaven and Hell are ‘here and now’
The way you pass each moment
You define whether you are in Heaven or a Hell…

Here I am supposed to write about myself. Professionally, I am quite serious and a workaholic; personally I am an individual who enjoys what he does and takes life as it comes. I am passionate about my work and actions and empathetically careful, attached and committed to them. All this makes me a fierce competitive professional and yet a compassionate soul, the Yin and the Yang together. Balancing is the art to be practiced using the middle path.

Prof Natarajan and six sigma rings a bell. Are we talking about the same one I wonder! Where did you come across Prof. Natarajan?

    I think we discussed it.. Prof Natarajan taught Quantitative Techniques to us in our MBA. He was in SP Jain Mumbai in 1980s or something, currently he is in Singapore. Very sharp and Mensa-ian, IIT-IIM as you can guess…
