    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 fortnight that was
    November 16, 2016

What a fortnight and what a year!

Last fortnight we saw their Royal Highnesses, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall visit Muscat. On Saturday November 5th, around mid morning, we got to see their motorcade zipping by the Corniche, and as the traffic was stopped to let their motorcade through, we waved out from our cars (keeping in line with the oft repeated maxim that one grew up with Atithi Devo Bhava , meaning “be one for whom the guest is God”), even though we couldn’t really make out in which car the Royal Couple were actually travelling.

The beloved October

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.
