Tata to B’lore!


This week has been very amusing. Guess what guys? I am moving out of Bangalore! I am so much in love with this city and so, it is really hard to think of moving out even though it is only for few months.  

I will be posted in Lahore to learn communication practices in Pakistan. It was definitely a difficult decision to make as this was not forced on me. But considering the professional benefits, I fell for it and said yes to the offer.

I will be staying next to Khalid Hosseini’s aunt’s house in Lahore. Apparently, Khalid is now in Lahore to write his third book. By the time he finishes his work, I am sure we will make good friends and all of you will get to see my name in the Acknowledgment Page, “ A hundred thanks to my dearest friend Shalini, who has been the motivation to write this novel. I am sad that I didn’t know her before” And you readers can console him, "So what Khalid, Better late than never."

Oh, such exciting days ahead, I just can't wait! I've already packed my bags; Pakistan...here I come :) And my dear friends, see you on the 'acknowledgment page'!   

By the way, today being April 1, Happy Birthday to all of you born on this day J
