This blog documents my experiences in my life post October 2005. And don't forget to check frequently for words of wisdom from Vijaya Gopal!! Explanation for unusual URL: This blog is dedicated to my grandfather, R.V. Sarma. He lived a healthy, and relatively independent life till the age of 94; and he used to write a daily diary which I haven't been able to trace. I am not able to find suitable words to express my feelings so let's just leave it at that.
