To the assorted legions of my blog-readers ;-), a big sorry! In hindsight, I should have expected this big delay before I could post (since I chose not to chug my laptop along) – the problem of course, is that I don’t have a box at home. My Mac Mini (which I did choose to take along) stays at the office where it has a monitor, keyboard and mouse attached. [The lesson of course is that, despite being an incredible device, the Mac Mini can’t do what it’s not designed to. Ergo, BYODKM. But, as usual, I’m digressing.]

One word to encapsulate my Delhi experience. Eventful. Five words? A huge fricking learning experience :-). My to-do lists, (which I’ll post soon) should be illustrative, but I learnt a lot about the big L these past two weeks. It’s been nice too – have had no real horrible experience so far, and in general, I’ve really liked it.

Making good friends has always been a problem for me (because I’m a bit of an introvertish freak) but hopefully in time, I’ll make em. To counteract that however, I’m very happy being alone and I find lots of things to keep me occupied. Reading books – something that I couldn’t do much the last six months – is what I’ve been doing mostly. Five books in 2 weeks is pretty good :-). And yup, digging out movie festivals and going to em (detailed posts later). I gotta go now. But hopefully, I’ll get a monitor soon and things will be back to my usual erratic self.

Many of these impressions about Delhi might be colored by those firsts, and they probably are. Witness my to-do list for the first week I was here [reproduced verbatim, and thoughts that come to mind soon after] (as promised): […]
