We are in Thrissur; it was unplanned. Usually, our travels are well-planned. But since most of our work is remote, it’s not a bother. But it does disrupt other things.

Welcome to the new year. We are still in Thrissur, though I am in Mumbai today for a short visit. I am back in Thrissur tomorrow night. We should be back in Bangalore next week.
