New Year Wishes – Year 2011

In just a few hours time, one beautiful desktop calendar that served me for the past twelve months would find its way to trash. Thankfully, my memories wouldn’t go accompanying it.

For those who know me for over a year now perhaps know I show up on this ‘special day’ every year, where ever I’m, to remind you that you’re in my thoughts and that I’m so grateful for your significant influence on my makeup. I call this a ‘special day’ not because any of us expect the world to be any different, when Sun rises tomorrow, but because at least some consider this to be a day to draw the curtain down on a year long episode of life and start a new one, a better one, with greater vigour. Like every year, let time tell us if we were smart enough to keep our resolutions realistic. But I do hope that we develop and maintain the will to achieve all noble goals we have in our mind for the Year 2011.

With some hours left in Year 2010, maybe, it isn’t futile to quickly look back at it, cherish all great moments once again, try and absorb the events that invoked negative emotions in us and forgive ourselves for all mistakes made and figure out corrective measures to fix it. With a hope that we all turn mature enough to accept all events in life with equanimity and make necessary changes in life, if,when and wherever required, to keep ourselves reasonably happy at least most part of the year, let’s get ready to welcome the Year 2011.

On a personal note, I’m grateful to have been able to maintain positive relationship with most of the people whom I knew before the beginning of Year 2010 and more so for being able to connect with some more wonderful human beings in the year that’s passing by, and for the great lessons of life they made me pick up from them. Thank you! Sorry, if I didn’t live up to the expectations of some. Next year, I hope to reduce the degree of separation with the world citizens even further.

Before I leave you to let you enjoy the New Year Celebrations in your own way, I want to thank you again for all your support and wish you and yours a New Year full of purpose and meaning.

Celebrate the arrival of Year 2011.

Lustre File System & N1 Grid Engine Sessions in Dubai

That the Egyptian One Pound Coin carries the figure of Pharaoh Tutankhamun is something that I learned from one of the folks in the picture below. Not just that, the story of Sphinx is quite clearer to me than ever before, thanks to these fellows from Egypt. It felt great to interact with them, learn a lot about the geography of Egypt, its culture, and was also interesting to know of the grand library that they all work for. Well, my commitment to them was to conduct a teach on Lustre and Grid Engine. In a venue at Dubai whether my discussion was useful for them is for them to comment, but I found it a good learning experience to be with them for a week and learn some interesting things. Thanks to each one of them for showing up for a course on Lustre and on N1 Grid Engine and for their wonderful company.
