We’re off for the rest of the year, and will be back on the 3rd of January. We have been off since monday, but this post got delayed because I was thinking about something profound to say about the things that shaped 2011. But it has been hard to put my finger on any one thing, because so much has happened from an industry, business and politics point of view – Not just globally but also locally- and so much seems uncertain.

Of one thing, there seems little doubt- that 2012 will see an acceleration in the pace of change, so as the year comes to a close, perhaps it’s time to switch off for a bit, disconnect from the virtual world and connect with the real one, to get a better sense of whether what many of us read on research reports, newspapers and online conform with reality. I’m travelling without a laptop – just the mobile phone this post is being thumbed from – across Gujarat, into Kutchh, with the intent of experiencing, rather than just observing and noting…a calm to prepare, perhaps, for a stormy 2012. What are you doing?

From all of us at medianama- have an interesting 2012 :-)
