I’ve led an eventful life and post retirement I’m raring to go. You’ll read about the crazy stuff I do here . If you feel a chord of empathy or inspiration do hit the like button. I’d love it if you drop a comment and do feel free to share.
I love to write about my travels, my encounters with spiritualism and outlandish stuff on hiking trails and cycling paths and a tip or two to budding corporate executives. Lurking some where within me is a mentor and coach.
I’ve published a couple of books and I’m passionately engaged in writing the next one.
I started this blog way back in 2006 but all that is the past and I’ve swept it into the realm of distant memories. The future beckons now and as I said I’m raring to go. Read the old stuff if you feel inclined I’m nostalgic about it.
The last few years have been hectic. A 250 kms ride in Rajasthan as part of the Desert 500 event being one of the highlights. I dedicated this ride to cancer care for disadvantaged children in collaboration with the Indian Cancer Society. I ran a reasonably good fund raising campaign and donated a tidy sum to the Indian Cancer Society.
Then there was the walking pilgrimage to Velankanni with a group of Anglo-Indian friends.We walked a distance of 350 kms over 10 days. I saw compassion a lot differently and witnessed the fervour of faith.
Then there was this awesome trek to Thumsar Pass. My friends and I crossed this pass at an altitude of 4705 kms. We saw some amazing landscapes that compensated in full for some extremely difficult days of trekking on either side of the pass.
And then over the last four years I have been working on my book,”These Bloomin’ Anglos.” I released the book in April 2018 and held well attended and successful launch events at Chennai, Bangalore and Delhi.
Well you can read all about these escapades in greater detail in the blog.
I am now embarking on a cyclothon in support of old age care and active aging. I turned 70 years in January this year and this endeavour will demonstrate that age is no bar in leading an active and productive life. The cyclothon will commence from Chennai on 19th January and conclude in Delhi on 19th March 2019.
