Of Globetrotting Scribes and Lankan Conferences

Globetrotting is no longer a strange word for our colleagues.

Business dude Sumit Upadhyay was in Colombo in December for a workshop and another one in Kathmandu some months ago.

Interestingly, Bengali maiden Rituparna Bhowmick was also in the Sri Lankan capital at the same time - but for the USAid conference on 'Violence Against Women'.

Wondering who will leave Indian shores next? Keep watching this space.

Of Zee ji and his Hotel Story

Wondering what Zeeshan Sheikh has been up to all this while?

Well, the Mumbai dude has just returned home after a junket in Rajasthan. Things are also looking up on the professional front with the Indian Express prominently displaying his 3-column byline story on the booming hotel business in India's financial capital. Way to go - Zee ji!

Of Shivika and Journalism of Courage

Mind you, Shivika Kapur (or should I say Sood?) is no longer a homemaker. The Punjabi damsel has left the comfort of her posh flat in Colaba to fend for herself in the big, bad world of Mumbai.

She's just joined a publication under the aegis of the Indian Express and may also be reporting for it. Best of Luck Shivika - we're waiting for some real journalism of courage.

Of Bawling Babies and Graveyard Shifts

Bengali babu Debjit Chakraborty is just back from Kolkata after spending time with wifey Ruma and newbie daughter Sreejoni.

The young one reportedly gave Deb dada a harrowing time with regular graveyard shifts at home.

And we thought we at the office were the only ones who hated these late night shifts.
