Look and feel of this site

Due to circumstances out of our control, we had to change our hosting service. While making that transition, I also made the decision to change the look of this blog. But I not clever enough to on my own fix all the little annoying bits that need fixing with such a transition. I get technical support for my blog from my dear friend and colleague Alok and he is really busy at his real job these last couple of weeks. Soon enough he will be relatively free to help me out. So take this opportunity to speak out and tell me what changes you would like to the look and feel of this site.

Back on the beat

Many of you have noted the fairly long hiatus in the postings on this blog and some have even written and called to find out if I am ok. Glad to report that I am indeed alive and kicking. I apologize for the extended break and I hope to get back on the treadmill without further delay.

So what’s in store for 2009, you may ask. I think I am going to work on a bit of synthesis. For the last few years I have touched upon a wide but interconnected set of issues related to India’s economic growth and development. It is time now to gather those together into a coherent whole and see how the big picture appears.

I hope to make some progress on the work I am doing. What is that, you ask. Well, first of all, I am working on setting up a service that would be of use for those in the educational sector. A great for-profit venture. It is true that I have been talking about it for a couple of years and I have precious little to show for it to date; but that is how it works — you think for a long while and then do. I am a great believer in thinking a lot before acting.

So here goes nothing. Do keep in touch and let’s all have a great new year. Cheers!
