    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

The beloved October
    October 20, 2016

Surprise, surprise…TT on a Thursday! Some of you experienced withdrawal symptoms when the alternate Wednesday fix was conspicuous by its absence yesterday, while some of you rejoiced presuming that the TT was finally axed by MD! Absence makes the heart grow fonder or maybe absence makes the heart go wander?

A New Year
    October 5, 2016

Wishing you all peace and happiness in the Hijri New Year, which was celebrated in Oman, the day before, though many would have preferred to celebrate it on Sunday and thereby get a longish weekend. 

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.
