I wish all my readers a very happy New Year. 2011 was a very mixed year with so many things happening all at the same time.
I decided to move out of New Jersey but was unable to sell the house due to the downturn in the housing market. It has become more of a distress sale. The writing of my 4th book took a very longtime, rewriting - after each announcement of a new beta. Microsoft rapidly announced the RTM soon after Beta 2.
Due to lack of time, I wrote fewer articles and made fewer posts to my blogs. I hope I will be able to correct this in 2012 and that will be my New Year resolution.
On the positive side I visited India and in particular my beloved city, Mysore where I grew up. I will blog about this city, a mysorian writing about Mysore, a bit of bragging; a lot of complaints and a bit of nostalgia. I also visited some famous cities in the North, Delhi, Jaipur and Agra. I hope to return to Hawaii soon where I am likely to spend a major part of my next few years.
Another thing I have been following in India is the cry of the masses against the all pervading corruption. It looks like the judicial system is tainted as well by this c word.
My best wishes to the activists who are trying to get the blessings of the constitution to put anti-corruption measures on a firmer ground through legislation.
