Maybe the end of love with city of Lowell

An admission deferral and a failed attempt later the student visa got approved in the first week of June in 2013.  I flew to the United States in August, from then on Lowell became the distant hometown. I cried, meet new friends, and countless times commuted to New York City via Boston. The city of Lowell made reminisce of Bangalore, initiated me to travel to Hyderabad for a week or two twice in four months.

Eventually graduating from school after the omnipotent impediments of Python, AI, and OPT approval problems. I accepted the offer and moved to Concord, the tax-free state's capital.

But Lowell lives still inside me, necessities like buying groceries or swiping the card in stores always reminded the graduation day. The fascinating moments surrounded by friends and one of the most unfortunate nights. That night I lost wallet and the first iPhone, which resulted in stress and impaired professional choices for a year.

To the thief, the desi student fool, I assume that you knew what was in the wallet apart from money and yet showed no concern. Thank you for making life more difficult and adding fresh distress in a foreign nation. Even after pleading you to leave the OPT card in the library or in the lost and found section. I will neither forget nor forgive you in a lifetime. There were many late nights and dawns when I walked alone from the library or Olsen without fear of getting mugged. Now I fear sleeping in my room when there is a party next door.

Thank you, for breaking into a home after a graduation party and when people are asleep in the room. Also, when my mates had drinks with you moments earlier in the house. During a few sleepless nights, I hope you experience the things I said to Chetan on the drive back to Concord the next morning. Furthermore, the appointments with cops in Lowell, who seem to neither care about the problems arising from loss of work permit nor be bothered to investigate after naming two potential suspects. A cop replied: "why do we desire to spend resources on a petty crime" when Lowell is a hub to other crimes. I do get the cops perceptive and leave you to karma.

By the way, how did you drop that single credit card in the cs lab?

Update Some Time in 2017:
A good samaritan found the purse near a riverfront next to the suspected fool's house and returned to Dracut Police. Then they tracked to the present address and returned it to me with all documents.

Friends and Facebook!!

A few days back out of boredom, I went through posts eternally on a blog maintained by bachelor classmates. Two posts intrigued most one drafted by me and another by Almeen, which prompted me to message him on Facebook after months​. Gee, it felt like Facebook is too heavy to even message a friend when he is neither active nor in the news feed. Which was populated prominently with commercials and film trailers, and videos but not the status updates of friends except for one 😄? Time passed on endlessly, with the CPU working hard to make a USB bootable for a friend using UNetBootin . The fan fuming out the heat reminded the Vizag steel plant blast furnace, that I visited in 2004. It might seem strange to remember a trip from ten years back, but I do remember that trip vividly due to reasons 😜. The night continued unlike seeing Doctor Who on Netflix (you can binge it as of 2020 on Amazon Prime in America and Hotstar in India before it disappears to HBOMAX) as it was routine from

How it is all started

Bored these days, wasn't that active socially hopefully, I will blog frequently from now on. Update on 03/30/2020, The above statement did not age well, as I posted just four times in six years. Now in times of COVID-19 pandemic and quarantine, I thought to give it another try. Also with Yayin in making and other professional decisions, it made sense to write more.

Updates in effect due to Covid19

With this COVID-19 crisis and the yayin project, I realized the need to enhance the presence across the web. So, I designed the portfolio and hosted on GitHub pages on this website . I have been working on a  blog where I post the collection of tools for web development in Java, Python and React. IELTS learning repository hosted GitHub is being redesigned using Hugo, which can be found  here . I am trying to start a store that sells customizable multi-language mechanical keyboards. This website would post articles about writing content and hosting in regional Indian languages.
