The peak of Mt. Everest is still out of reach for me but the heights of human endeavour were within reach at Burj Khalifa. The panorama of Paris spread before you when you’re atop the Eiffel is still my favorite, but the beauty that is the bubble that is Dubai is still worth a look!
The size and scope of the frenzied construction that has made Dubai the international city that is is today are visible all around.
This human effort is made all the more precious when you see how close the enveloping sands of the desert are to the heart of Dubai city.
Turn a quarter of a circle and the waters of the Gulf are visible. At the intersection of sand and water stands this symbol of the heights humankind has reached, and Dubai aspires to go further…
I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then.
I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile!
A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit).
I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog.
I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly.
I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.
Wow… an incredible airport!
