Who art thou 2009?

Yep, 2009 has come and gone, for good. Not a particularly good year, both professionally (in part) and personally.

No major highlights except growing older. And…

Left GE Healthcare. I think the team is imploding literally, almost like a repeat of Applibase. Heh
Joined SPML-Semitech, with responsibilities in an entirely different industry and segment. Heck, I don’t even code for a living anymore. Don’t know if that is good or bad…
Work has been a killer in my new job (which does not have Saturdays and also some questionable policies but then the company is managed by my uncle and cousins so can’t complain :) )

Traveled a LOT. Visited Xi’an (Sian), Hangzhou, Shenzhen, Hong Kong (All in China), Bhopal, Mumbai, Jaipur, Delhi (about 4 times this year) Pondicherry, Assam, Calcutta.

My Grandmother died this year and I was really close to her. That was the worst of the year. I miss her.

Well 2010 is here now and I have a lot of hopes for this year. Hopefully a lot of change in my outlook, life and work, a lot more travel and clarity about myself, future and my thoughts.

Here’s to a new year and bye bye to the year past :)

    @Rashmi: Amen to that.

    @Pramod: Well a li’l. But on an overall scale, it was more of a downer for me :(

    Oy! Watch it. Don’t make me come there and smack you. Partly because I don’t want to be smacked back and partly also because one can never tell where there might be with you.

    Btw, the rest of us, Pramod and I atleast, think you’re having a mighty fine life. At least looks that way from where we stand :). Yeah, yeah not the best two commenters on what a great time might be.
