I had started this blog way back in 2004. Its been eight years now. And as you might have marked, I am not writing much in last 2-3 years. The blog has fallen into disuse. Reasons for this are:
a) Anything interesting happening in office or public life is either CONFIDENTIAL or CONTROVERSIAL. Anything that is not (say, an anecdote) becomes controversial once leaked out to public glare. Blogging is a dangerous terrain for civil servants.
b) Since I am a civil servant, there are certain proprieties of language and behaviour I am supposed to maintain. My personal life, ideas and crack language (as some refer to it: God knows what it actually means) will expose me.
But I wanna talk. I wanna share. I wanna discuss. I want to express. So on this date, the first of January, 2013, I am opening a new blog. This blog will be floated into the cyber-ocean under a pseudonym. You will find me unchained and unhindered.
This blog will be retained in its present form: primarily devoting it to some academic debates.
