Today is the 5th anniversary of Mumbai Attacks. I remember the day clearly - I had just entered the office in Mountain View, CA and as part of my usual habit, opened NDTV website. I was SHOCKED to find out about the scale of the attack. I immediately called my ex-roommate who was in Mumbai at that time. I was afraid for my friends in Mumbai. I was afraid for millions of people in Mumbai. I couldn’t work in the office. I was glued to all news website for hours and hours!! I couldn’t sleep for days.
Few weeks ago, I went to the two locations which were attacked - Leopold Cafe and Taj Mahal Hotel and prayed silently for the victims. I hope that such attacks never happen anywhere in the world.
One thing that struck me - the strength of Mumbaikars! They have an inordinate strength of facing attacks or calamities. Let’s raise a toast for Mumbaikars!

I went to Big Sur with Vivek, Miloni and one of her classmates. We drove all the way from Sunnyvale to Carmel Valley Ranch for the breakfast. The ranch was HUGE and AMAZING!
Then we drove to Limekiln State Park along CA1 highway. It was easily one of the most beautiful drives! Every spot on the highway has such gorgeous views that it can’t be described in words. You have to go there to experience it yourself.
Here are few of many photographs that I took. It was just surreal!
“Luck is not an accident. Luck is created via the daily process of devotion to your goals + consistent action and relentless innovation —that over time (with patience) leads the world to call you lucky. So go Get Your Luck!”—
