This blog has now officially been shut down

It has been a good run. I began from 36 and counting and now am at 43 and counting. And rather tired of counting. And blogging. And have nothing much to say of any relevance, but then when did I ever, and when did it stop me, you might say and rightly so.
So here is a big, heartfelt thank you to all you readers who stuck with me through thick, and well thin never happened despite all that dieting and walking the minute mile I wrote about, and I love you all and I hope sometime to meet you, shake your hands and talk about the good old days when one blogged for the fun of it and for the comments and not for page views and hits and klout scores.

The primary blog will now be You can find me there. All I will post are columns, book related info and event info and occasionally, ramblings. And of course, I am on twitter, during coffee breaks. Until I bore of that too.
