And, yes…the person standing and rocking, is yours truly. The left hand makes a solid, powerful appearance, as you can all see! 🙂
Life is beautiful, isn’t it?
Hello peeps, here’s the update of what’s going on!
I am now a member of the Research Group of Infinity Journal, London! Pretty stoked about it!
Also, one of my research paper came out in International Affairs Review, GWU…on the change in US Foreign Policy…
Finally, I’m proud to announce that I’m selected as one of the 12 young business and ideas leaders for a month long fully funded studentship by Upstart Business Incubator, funded by New Zealand Trade and Enterprise, Otago University, Otago Polytechnic, Dunedin City Council, Deloitte and other private funding! Can’t express how happy I am, being the only foreigner in this great team! Totally looking forward to this incredible experience!
Now, to celebrate these, the lady and I decided to do a short trip…I always wanted to see a Seal! And boy, an experience that was!
More photos here! Enjoy!
Just some photos, of Dunedin Northern Cemetery.
The Northern Cemetery is a historic location, with over 17,000 graves and tombs, including Thomas Bracken, the author of NZ National Anthem.
Here are some photos:
For more…visit my Flickr page.
Pictures do convey a thousand words…hope I did justice to this fascinating place!
As promised, here is another collection of pics. But I got complains in my mail, that some of you are having probs seeing the pics, maybe because I upload them on my personal FB, and then share it on the DWW page…but I still can’t fathom why, as it ideally shouldn’t be…my picture settings are mostly on public, and I can be found on search too!
I still really wish that you just join the DWW FB page though!
In other news, I am starting to write a guest column for the (famous/notorious depending on which side of the spectrum you are) Critic Magazine, the largest and most read student mag of New Zealand…my first column will probably come out next week. My editor is MEGA-cool though…and due to his advanced age, probably won’t even remember that I write for him…much less interfere in my journalistic liberty. Continue reading
Kia Ora? I had a day off…so I visited the Otago Museum, and clicked some hilariously bad pics with my BB…like those drunk amateur wedding photographers…plus Blackberry phone cameras are probably the worst thing to happen to a photography connoisseur, that’s a fact. But indomitable spirit that I am, here’s an exclusive photo trip on the FB page… Continue reading
Hey awrite there mates?! Sorry for the long delay in typing. I am severely contemplating all possible meanings of the song “take my breath away” here in quite possibly the southern most habitable part of the World for an Indian-Bengali. A little south from here means I will be living with the Penguins, which romantic though it sounds, is practically impossible for the bunch of rice eating people who likes to wear sweaters at 24 degree C. Other simultaneous reasons include settling down in a new city, having no net connection yet, filling up over sixty seven forms per hour for a variety of purposes, scholarship application, lack of oxygen and breathlessness walking up and down a hill everyday, and tragedy of my sad experimentation with my hair. The last bit is particularly grim as my hair is now not exactly spike, as intended, nor is it wavy as usual, but a halfhearted cross of both, whereby making me resemble the closest primate relative of an electrocuted punk cockatoo. Anyway, such is life. In the words of one of my favourite British movie rock-star/character Aldous Snow, “Listen, don’t let ’em grind you down…take it easy, eh?” Continue reading
