Family Man

Being a family man back again is cool. Life now moves in an orderly manner. No more sleepless nights with computer and sleeping days on weekends. Week days now starts with a good break fast. Then I carry the tiffin with lunch to work. These days, the work pressure is less compared to those initial days and I can be back home in time.

Weekends are busy with shopping. We tried all shopping malls like Walmart, Kroger, Albertsons, and Fiesta. There are lots of Desi super markets too where you get Indian grocery. The problem with most of them was that they sell expired items. Most of the packets will not even have the expiry dates displayed. Also we did lots of experiments with cooking and at times we had my friends join us for lunch.

It is not uncommon these days to meet your long lost friend from another country. Abhilash was my colleague at Soft Systems, Kochi and ever since he left Kochi for his studies in UK, we have never met. Now he is here, right here in Dallas... actually just few miles away from my apartment for a short term project from his company in Pune.


  1. Our most basic instinct is not for survival but for family. Most of us would give our own life for the survival of a family member, yet we lead our daily life too often as if we take our family for granted...
    Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family. Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one. The family is a haven in a heartless world...
