A novel coronavirus brought the world to its knees at the start of 2020. Three months in—as India, the US, Italy, the UK, Spain and nearly every other country on the planet went into a lockdown—it became clear that this event would define our generation in ways we never expected. Starting from the first day India was locked down, a set of daily notes were published as the COVID-19 diaries that would record the views of a handful of people, but primarily of the owner of this website, of life under quarantine and several thoughts on how India and the rest of the world were handling this crisis.
Other articles have also been published on the SARS-Cov-2 virus: read about the bright side of humanity’s capacity for survival; the global economic impact of COVID-19.
Visit our permanently archived wedding website
The lovely Vaishnavi M. Kulkarni and I got married in December of 2018. This was our wedding website and since I coded it I gifted myself the right to unabashedly use my favourite typeface of all time, Minion, almost everywhere. (The wife approved.) While this website is not of public interest, it is certainly in my personal interest to archive the link here for posterity.
The currently live version has been edited so everything is in the past tense and our wedding day counter has been removed. However, there is a frozen version of the site that still looks exactly as it did before the wedding except with the countdown timer reading zero for obvious reasons.
An archival of select blog articles
From 2011 to 2017 this website was powered by Wordpress. In 2017, to mark its ten year anniversary, there took place what I like to call the great purge: I removed over 500 essays permanently from the database to allow for a leaner collection of articles with an increased baseline quality for the entire archival. Since 2017 this website has eschewed databases and moved to Hugo (after a brief stint with Kirby) for a more modern framework on which to run the site; and articles made since that time, including a handful from the 2011–2017 years, can be found on this website. You are welcome to browse the archives anytime.
