Death be not proud!

In loving memory....
Dr. D. N. Naik (June 1941 - February 2008)

... of a loving husband and an amazing dad. If I were even 10% as good a man as he was, I would be considered a really good man.

Terribly missing my dad and grappling with endless grief, shock, emptiness, and various other associated feelings. So, it is time for a time-out from blogging for a few months. I'll be back though - likely in June.

Are God and Nature then at strife,
That Nature lends such evil dreams?
So careful of the type she seems,
So careless of the single life;

So runs my dream, but what am I?
An infant crying in the night
An infant crying for the light
And with no language but a cry.
- from In Memoriam A.H.H. by Alfred, Lord Tennyson.
The title is of course, from John Donne's famous poem with the same title.

A longer break

I am back from my hiatus but I am not going to be back in action. I am not sure if I will be blogging for the next few months. Rukawat ke liye khed hai. Other priorities in life have to take precedence. I'll try to be back to regular blogging by May/June...though I may blog intermittently between now and April.
