Did I share this here?

I gave a talk on India Helps at the Zeitgeist Conference at St Xavier’s last Saturday. Will write more about that experience later, but suffice to say the levels of professionalism and organisation that these students showed knocked my socks off, holes and all.

The best thing of driving all the way into town, with the strong, silent spouse by my side and the strong but not so silent brat with us to, was this picture shot by Roycin DSouza who was a co-panelist on the talk on Social Media Going Offline discussion. He, if you don’t know already, is doing this Twitter A Day calendar, where he shots twitter personalities, one a day.

Here’s my shot.
It has my book and my boy. And yes, that is why it is so precious to me.
