@Robin: don't remember the camera. It was a simple point-and-shoot canon camera. Nothing fancy.

Just a programmer · amateur poet · avid trekker
Introduction
I find solace in computer programming, bliss in Hindi poetry, solitude in Himalayas, and humor in personal finance choices.

Between growing up in the industrial town of Kanpur (India) at the bank of river Ganga and my almost a decade long present presence in Bangalore, I wandered in 6 cities in India and US with all my worldly belongings packed in two suitcases. There was a 3 year long patch when I shifted to a different house and/or city every 6 month. I still sometime grow restless and escape away to solitude in Himalaya. Each travel or trek teaches me a bit about the place I am visiting and people I am with, and a byte about me.

Never a disciplined writer, inspiration for writing Hindi poetry blesses me once in a while. मन - प्राण (Man-Praan: Heart & Soul) is collection of my selected poems written before May 2003. I haven't written much since then. What I lack in writing, I try to make up by reading. Ramdhari Singh Dinkar's रश्मिरथी (Rashmirathi: on the chariot of sun rays) is my favorite epic poem (it's subject is Karna, one of the greatest warriors in the Mahabharata war). Among its several influences on my life, I named my daughter अरुषी (Arushi: the first ray of sun).

I earn my living by writing computer programs. I used to work at Microsoft Research as a Senior Software Engineer. Yes, I still program and I unabashedly confess that I am just a programmer. My computer science interests include program analysis & profiling tools, compilers, software development environments, software engineering tools, programming languages and type theory.

The last, and the least, of my interests is personal finance: especially how some very smart people sometime let emotions, and not logic, drive them in making inferior financial choices despite being fully capable of comprehending mathematical reality; and how in those instances psychology and sociology trump over arithmetic and economics.

I finally decided that Mast Kalandar doesn’t deserve my business anymore. I have been reluctant in making that decision as I loved their homely & healthy food since they started their first restaurant opposite Ranka Colony, and have admired their growth. While we lived on Bannerghatta Rd, we frequented them often even during those several months the Ranka Colony road was dug-up. Food quality has been deteriorating in last couple of years. But now, with too much salt, too much spices, too much oil, it is just slightly better version of north Indian food that you get at various Shanti Sangar type places. I have been to several of their restaurants over the years: Ranka Colony, Arakere, Indiranagar, Koramangala, Airport Road, Domlur, Sadashivnagar, and in recent months after moving to ORR, to Sarjapur Road and Bellendur. I must have ordered a home delivery a dozen times from their Bellendur shop, and more than half time the order has been messed up (chutney missing from Kabab order, number of paratha being less than what ordered and billed, roti having ghee despite specifying to not do so, ordered family pack but instead platter versions are sent, completely raw unroasted Paneer tikka, Kadhi family pack with just liquid and not a single pakaudi). Once order was delivered almost two hours later! Every time I got a standard reply: sorry sir (for Kadhi they said, it has got over so they could just make the liquid; hello! you could call back and say not available, please order something else). Today when I called up Bellendur at 12:15pm, they said that they have just started setting up the Tandoor so it will take a long time to deliver the paratha platters (yes, just plain simple paratha platters) that I was ordering. So anyone walking into the place at 12:15 today for lunch, not sure how long would have had to wait. Quality of service is nowhere compare to the days when they put up a notice on their Ranka Colony shop when the road was dug-up reading something like: we appreciate you taking pain to reach here, free dessert with every platter. Having admired their founders, as sad as it might be to see this deterioration, I am no more willing to pay for their current (lack of) quality of food and service.
