This is the first post on my new blog. So, hello world. I’ve been blogging for a while now on cricket (yes, cricket, the game, not crickets). Here, I intend to blog on things other than cricket. What that might be will become progressively clearer once I commit myself to actual writing, as opposed to thinking about writing. But I expect there will be posts on books, movies, philosophy, teaching philosophy, the body beautiful and its not-so-beautiful demands, technology, sports; in short, the things that take up most of my time and hence demand attention and occasionally, opinions. I will be setting up the blog over the next couple of weeks, making it useful for myself and for my readers (hope springs eternal); the idea is to find a balance between pimping and Sparta.
