Kumartuli to Jacksonville

By | Personal, Travel Diaries | US | No Comments

Ma Durga crosses the Atlantic to shower her blessings on the residents of Jacksonville, Florida.

Jacksonville was my first place of stay in the US and I can easily call it my second home. So while all of my friends and family were enjoying the arrival of the ‘Mother and her Family’ in the City of Joy, I did not miss much of the fun, thanks to the efforts of so many people who made the Jax (as we lovingly call the city of Jacksonville) Durga Pujo possible.

This post is dedicated to their hard work and enthusiasm.

Thanks to Mayukh Da, for the write up.

Few minutes with Canon’s First Full Frame Mirror-less

By | Gadgets & Gears, Personal | No Comments

A brief hands on with Canon’s first Full Frame Mirror-less, the EOS-R before it hits the shelves on October 9th.

Cameras have been getting smaller and more versatile than ever. While DSLRs still dominate the market, mirror-less are catching up fast.

So after Sony (being the market leader in full frame mirror-less cameras) it was Nikon and finally Canon caught up to the mirror-less game.

At times Canon can be really reserved and sluggish at delivering certain features for some of it’s most premium cameras, but generally when it does it is one of the best out there.

Being a Canon user myself I was pretty excited at the launch and when finally got a chance to get my hands on one before it actually hits the shelves, I could not be more excited.  Top of that, this was an actually working model and not a pre-production one.

A special thanks to team #pixelconnection  and #CanonUSA for bringing this together.

This is not a review or comparison post, rather a look at some of the features I really loved about the camera and some not that good (when compared its mirrored brother – the Canon EOS 5Dmk IV)

Tour de cure St Augustine Florida 2016

Tour de Cure 2016 | Biking for a cause

By | Personal, Travel Diaries | US | No Comments

Unlike it’s close namesake Tour de France, Tour de Cure is a not a gruesome bicycle race , rather a ride to raise money for diabetes research.  In recent years it has gone from just a bicycling event to options like walking and running as well to include a wider participation.

In this post I share my experiences including mistakes and lessons learnt from the 2016 Tour de Cure held at St Augustine, Florida, where I participated as a rider for the 41 mile circuit and yes… I managed to complete it.

The Last 2 Years | Catching Up

By | Personal | No Comments

Being decently active at maintaining and updating my blog at regular intervals (at least twice a month) to suddenly stopping adding new posts and then finally hanging up a maintenance page on it for almost a year and a half. It was not a random decision, definitely not an easy one.

So why do it ?
