Review: Half Pants Full Pants – an enjoyable read

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Some weeks ago, there was a package delivered from Hector Beverages. Too small to be another flavour of their Paper Boat drinks and bigger than the Paper Boat Chikki, and it turned out to be a book – “Half Pants Full Pants” – by Anand “Suspi” Subbarao.

Unfortunately, after the initial glance-through, the book just lay in the cupboard for a while (my love for reading has been in hibernate mode for a while now), before I finally decided to check it out – and wow, what an enjoyable read it is!

Amazon order delayed: 3 times in 5 days – Amazon is slipping!

Reading Time: 4 minutes

“Amazon order delayed” – never thought I’d see this, or feel they’re slipping up. Been a very satisfied customer of Amazon for a VERY long time now, and have never faced any major issues.

However, 3 delayed orders in 5 days and the subsequent experience with their customer care on chat has taken some of the shine off all that previous good experience.

One year at Walnut

Reading Time: 2 minutes

One year at Walnut. Wow. *takes a deep breath* Has a year gone by already? 🙂

Indeed it has, and what a ride it has been! It seems like just a few weeks ago when Amit pinged to say they were looking at expanding their team and wanted to know if I’d be interested to meet up and know more.

I was on a break after my last job and at the time had mostly been freelancing for the past couple of years, so initially expected this to be another freelance / part-time gig but that wasn’t so. Now I’m probably among the rare junta who has *not* worked at a startup in the past few years, so there was just that initial hesitation, but a couple of meetings with him and then with Patan, and I was aboard a week later.
