I am essentially a hobby blogger, blogging primarily to share my personal views on what I read.

I would now take up a few regular activities – an article on blogs that I read on Hindi Film Music, in the format of a carnival; a similar article on Quality Management and an article on Leadership Development Carnival ( primarily hosted by Dan McCarthy. I would begin from January 2013.

Five decades later, the assassination of John F. Kennedy remains one of the few utterly signal events from the second half of the 20th century.
