...and we're Back!

I confess, I have been away for over five months. 150 days. Nearly half a year. Shameful! Guilty!

I do have a little bit of an excuse, a professional one, and one related to Trivandrum. In a good way, I promise. While I have been chipping away at it for over two years now, the last few months have seen a frenzy of activity as we finally closed a long drawn out acquisition process for what will, hopefully, be a landmark development for Trivandrum, generating tens of thousands of much needed jobs and creating a truly world-class piece of urban infrastructure.


Not the lamest of excuses, I hope. And hopefully while this should keep me very busy in the coming months, I will find more time to post regularly here.

If you'd like to know more about our project, you can check our the Taurus India website and Facebook page.

In the meantime, the only other significant project to make any sort of headway in Trivandrum over the last few months and years is the Trivandrum International Stadium. Here's where it stands 61 days before the Opening Ceremony, a hive of feverish activity, with more mobile cranes in action than any other construction site that Trivandrum has seen before, one that would not be quite out of place in New York, Dubai or Shanghai!

Lots of great pictures of the stadium here and here.
