    Trivial Travails

    Mahesh has been in Oman for almost 25 years. He worked with the State Bank of India group, Banque Indo Suez, BankMuscat and Merrill Lynch before starting Trinity Investments. Why Trinity? Apparently because of the three women in his life... his wife and two daughters! You can contact him at

Good to be back home

Eid Mubarak! Hope everyone had a wonderful celebration and a great holiday. It has been difficult getting back to the normal routine after almost a month. 

The 160th TT
    August 31, 2016

So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, good-bye, adieu, au revoir, Ma salama etc etc. Had you confused for a moment, didn’t I, that I was going to burst into the Sound of Music song? But no, it’s not a Von Trapp thing and neither it’s a simple trap thing nor is it me saying good bye to the world of alternate Wednesdays and the TT singing its swan song - much to the chagrin of some!

The sabbatical ends
    August 17, 2016

Mea culpa...I signed off the last TT on June 22 with the signature note bidding adieu: “Till next fortnight…” not realising it will actually be four fortnights before the twain would meet and one could get back to the keyboard to write the next TT.

Orlando massacre
    June 22, 2016

It’s been two weeks since the last TT but it’s been less than two weeks since that Sunday in Orlando and it’s now time for us to take stock. For those who may not have heard or watched Trevor Noah or Hasan Minhaj, maybe it’s time to get away from your Facebook and Instagram page and stop taking and posting those selfies, with that exaggerated pout, and spend your time instead, listening to such comic geniuses.

Old and new champions
    June 8, 2016

Ramadan Mubarak… . The holy month of Ramadan started yesterday and this is a time of spiritual reflection, a time for self-improvement and increased devotion and worship.
