    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

Time to bid adieu
    March 29, 2017

The time has come to bid adieu…to the residue of the month of March, to the last vestiges of winter, and to what Lord Byron had so eloquently referred to as the “good old times” – as “all times when old are good.” However, the good old times threaten to be petering off, now that our very dear friends have actually firmed up their date to say Ma’a Salama and bid adieu to Oman-which has been their home for the past three decades.

Rewriting History
    February 1, 2017

While sitting down to pen this 170th article of the Trivial Travails , having no clue what-so-ever what to pen (quite like the previous 169), I decided to spend the evening in the garden musing on life. The weather couldn’t have been better and with ABCD to give me company (Atticus running around, Beethoven playing in the background, Cohiba between the fingers and the Dalmore-15 with rocks and a dash of water nestled in the other hand), I too, like Wodehouse, pondered that if you come to think of it, life is such a strange thing. “So unlike anything else, don’t you know, if you see what I mean?”
