40 questions about 2007

I am trying to continue the trend started by me when 2006 was ending. To summarize the things in the way that you can recall them later, more easily than ever.

 

Here is the first series of that kind (you can also find same list for last year) –

 

  1. What did you do in 2007 that you’d never done before?
    1. Continued my job for 2 years (of course that is an achievement when it is for first in 3 years of career)

    3. Found my love
    4. Traveled abroad / US (Writing from there only)

    7. Visited Historical Monuments in Capital nearby
    8. Met with old time mate (Happy)
  2. Did you keep your New Years’ resolutions, and will you make more for next year?

    Oh yes I kept it. I don’t have habit of leaving impossible things like that. If it couldn’t be done in 2006, it was kept in 2007. Hey Krishna, are you listening? Of course, making another one for year 2008 and this time, again it is next to impossible for a person like me!

    1. Nitesh,
      Some how i stumbled upon at your pages.
      Your passions look great and your writings are very interesting. Only few people will have the ability to pen ( or type) down their thoughts in a right manner, which interests others. You have very good writing and organizing skills. Develop it and Keep it up.

      Thanks,
      SaravanaKumar
