2010 in review


As I think of the perfect adjective to describe 2010, "busy" is the word that comes to my mind. Whether the "busy"ness yielded positive results is something time will tell. As for 2011, my plan is to live a much more conscious life - the moments lived and captured and not wonder later how the months went by.

The review list below is for my own tracking as I've been doing for the past 5 years. So you can skip reading the rest.

Getting my PGSEM degree from Mr.Mukesh Ambani during IIMB Convocation was a memorable moment
Converted my final year project into an IIMB working paper 
First time working in a start-up kind of environment. Lots of releases and action packed year it was! Good learning experience.
Attended the inspiring TEDXChennai event, it was my first time attending a TED event
Made a presentation at product camp Bangalore on "Product Positioning". A nice feeling to see my topic as the top voted one
90% of my commute this whole year was through BMTC buses. A tiny fraction of an effort towards conserving nature
Switched from Windows to Mac. Awesome experience so far though I miss MS Office 
Visited Delhi after a long time on an official visit. Brought back memories of my final trip with mom years ago.
Attended workshops on Creative Writing and Organic gardening
Started composting organic waste using Daily Dump Kambha. All the vegetable waste from my kitchen is getting reused
Did not eat Lays and Kurkure chips for the whole year (Yes, this deserves a mention!)
More tweets and very few blog posts. Need to get back to writing next year
Fell in love with Zynga games, especially Farmville
Visited 3 new places this year - North Wayanad, Coorg and Swaswara
