Moving to a New Home

This blog is moving to new Home. Yay !!

Finally bidding goodbye to Blogger & moving to a more managed Wordpress blog after a good long 7 years & many learnings, though not all transformed into blog entries !!

Revisiting old memories, my journey as a Blogger started with being a part of Sun Campus Ambassador program and I definitely plan to continue and keep blogging about all the new technologies that I get a chance to work with.

So please follow me on the new blog. Also check out the home page I designed & created for myself. Looks cool, right ? ;)

See you there,
