The Year that was 2015

Its been a roller-coaster year. We did a great trip earlier this year then like a plan all of us fell sick one after another. All of us got some kind of viral fever. I think it was weather. I watched so many movies during those days. At the end of the year I tried to read as many books as possible.

I didn't run this year. My main goal for 2016 is to restart running & cycling. Do some motor-cycling trips. I also want to go on couple of treks.

Otherwise its been a great year. All the very best for 2016.


  1. EPIC Drive was awesome. I learnt a lot.
  2. Almost got sued. Thanks to Lawrence Liang of ALF for the support. Here is the full coverage.
  3. I turned 35
  4. 67 Movies and 18 Books. All these are part of my quantified self profile. I track BP, Weight, Movies, Books, Beverages and Sleep. I am slowly finding a way to publish it.
  5. I fell sick so many times :(. Everyone in my family fell sick. Specially my mother. We all are getting old. On a good note this is the year I restarted meditation. Its was very difficult to concentrate in the beginning. I think starting slow and making it a routine helped. Calm App is really helpful. I usually use sound of rain and waves as background.
  6. Joined board of Oorvani Foundation and Tech Advisor for BuzzIndia.
  7. I am happy that I contributed to the work of Citizen Matters, Wikipedia
  8. I spend most my time with Mavrix and Data{Meet}. I also contribute to with, NPTEL (National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning) MOOC and BuzzIndia
  9. I am quite happy about my code contribution to FOSS projects I have 400+ contributions this year. I need a better way to track this.
  10. Changed theme. Cleaned up the pages. Now my blog looks much more cleaner. It uses Hueman theme. I have sections on maps, notebooks, lists and recipes. I am still moving content around. Should be done by June/16.
