It suddenly dawned on me that it has been ages since I wrote here.  During the term, inevitably life does become busy. Taking advantage of the vacations, I went on a trip to the mountains with some friends. The trip was lovely.  We went to Badrinath and went on a couple of treks. I will write more on them soon. Apart from the sheer joy of being in the himalayas, I had the pleasure of running into the parents of a very close friend of mine in the Badrinath temple. They are from Chennai – the world indeed is a very very small place.

I am now back in Kanpur, thoroughly rejuvenated, remarkably pleased with the world and ready to work.. and also hopefully to make good progress with the violin.. time will tell….. till then!!!
