I write a blog called Distant Whispers where I muse and pontificate on things travel, technical, and tech policy. [ WWW ]


I have interests in creative writing, badminton, and Indian classical music.


A sampling of pictures down the ages is here.


A page with my current reads and music albums is here.


Here is the web page of somebody who keeps me sane and smiling.


For those of you wondering how to pronounce my name. And are too polite to ask. And willing to butcher it instead. [ MP3 ]


I act as a consultant on technical matters through a consulting company that several of us have called CSSCS. I am currently consulting on reliability, security, data analytics, and high performance computing. Current status: Consulting for 2 companies, so not looking for others, unless it is right in my wheelhouse.
