Things we take for Granted

Typhoon Nuri went away & the weather improved. We managed to catch up with friends over lunch to celebrate my birthday. As always I got a couple of lovely books – biography of Lakshmi Mittal, A lonely planet coffee table book on World Cities, and a BBC Book on 20th Century Innovations.

As I browsed through them today I realised how many things we take for granted today were the biggest innovations of their times. In some cases its a work of a lifetime but we seldom acknowledge that. Just goes on to prove that what you innovate today will be taken for granted tomorrow.

Reincarnation

This is my new blogging avatar. I had a few avatars before and the last one was quite good. But it died a slow death because of my crazy travel over last 18 months and inertia to connect over the weekends. I then installed a blog uploader app on my desktop & I kept jotting my thoughts. It didn’t work that well.

So finally beginning of this month I killed my inertia – spoke to Parag – who has always helped in setting things – and started configuring the blogging platform.

I was planning to launch it over the weekend but today we got an unexpected holiday because of a severe typhoon headed Hong Kong’s way. Incidentally it happens to be my birthday as well and hence it made perfect sense to launch.

Here’s to my new Avatar – Rays, Reflections & Refraction.

Thank You Parag!!!
