2012 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 6,900 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 12 years to get that many views.

Wrong Timing? Not Really

80s90s

You always hear the older guys around saying that ‘During our time it was so different’. And I always use to say ‘Yeah Right’. However it’s the basic human tendency to compare things and look back. You began to wonder if this is an integral part of human evolution. I, on a personal level have been a part of lot of debates and arguments about the Born in the 70s/80s/90s and even wrote a few blogs on Generation Gap and how things differ as decades pass by (that indeed fired a lot of old guys up). However if you think a little there is a strange relevance to each generation and it’s even more fascinating when you realize you are a part of two and not one decade.
