Since it’s the last few weeks of the year, I have started working on the reflection on the year to write my year-end coverage post series called The Year That Was. This year, I am also thinking about what my focus should be in 2024. I have not done that before, at least consciously, except for sharing New Year’s Resolutions in haste, which has rarely worked.

For me, having kids has been a dream for a long time. It was only in my late twenties and early thirties that I thought about adoption and chose it to be the primary option. I was super lucky to meet someone with similar thoughts and dreams. It just became super easy once we got married.
We are five weeks away from the year-end. I already feel the year is over, maybe because I can see everyone’s holiday plans.
I have recommended KoboToolbox (and KoboCollect) for nonprofits, and we also use it at DataMeet to collect all kinds of data, including IDVC. For IDVC, I pull the data from KoboToolbox, do some massaging, and then upload it to CouchDB. It works very well. But what if I want to make this whole process real-time?
These two pictures of Echo and Pathu by a friend in their natural habitat :) Both of them look so lovely, so I’m posting them here.
We spent an extended weekend at Bekkina Kaadu (Linger) near Magadi. We did nothing other than sleep, eat, and watch. On Sunday, we had to rush back as Echo wasn’t feeling well. Bekkina Kaadu is very close to the city and yet very far. It can be an ideal place to do focused work as you get Airtel 4G and nothing to distract you (other than ofcourse internet).
