March 19 1985, 05:28. Date and time a certain SJ (no, not Steve Jobs, me!) came into this world. Fast forward to March 19, 2010. Today. Yesterday. couple of days ago. 25. I’ve “officially” completed 25 years of which 22 years were spent in Mangalore, 9 months in Austin, and the remaining time in Chennai.
Yeah, I’m back in India. Well, actually landed in Chennai long time [ damn it’s been more than a month o_0 ]. So let me recap what’s been happening and what I’ve bene upto.
First thing: the return trip. The return flight was rather uneventful, nowhere near how my flight from Mumbai to Austin was ( well, that’s a good thing).
My flight itself was rather long ( heck what do ya expect from a transcontinental flight anyway), covering 4 different flights – American Airlines from Austin to Chicago, and from Chicago to New York and Jet Airways from New York to Brussels (stop over) and from Brussels to Chennai.

Well the third Chennai twitter meetup was held yesterday – and like the second tweetup, this one too was decided in a hurry. UNLIKE the last tweetup, we had more people – 7 people all in all including me, The ones that attended were
- Ashish (@ashishmohta)
- Balaji Sowmyanarayan(@labsji)
- Gayathri (@gbot)
- Palaniappam (@palam)
It seems with twitter everything happens instantaneously. You get instant feedback, instant replies, instant responses. And the next Chennai twitter meet was decided instantaneously.
I was talking to Ashwin aka cruisemaniac regarding his day day in Italy, and he asked if I’m in Chennai. I responded in positive, and he told me he’ll be landing here and will be here till Saturday and bam! Next thing we know we decided to meetup this Saturday, and extend the invitation to fellow Chennai twitter users.
Here’s the details:
Date: Saturday, August 2nd 2008. Time: Around 13:00-13:30
Venue: Not decided yet, most probably Resto Bronx bar at Hotel Manhattan, Santhome.
I’m open to any other suggestions.
If you’re interested in coming, drop a comment or send me a @reply on twitter. Hope to see you there!
