A long time back my laptop conked. All my data was saved and my laptop restored back to health. But due to some reason it would show some picture folders twice. So in my infinite wisdom I did a ‘shift del’ on those folders and somehow both the folders vanished. Now all this data was backed up in an external drive as well. But Brat 1 and 2 gave that drive to a friend and I would often say, get that drive back and they would say “yes Bua“. And there the matter would rest. Among the lot were photos from my first ever trip to UK as well.
Then imagine my happiness when one of my IT staff at work asked me this week, “Ma’am how come your laptop data is stored on a PC in the lab?” Now this happened because of some backup the then IT staff had taken. So, I immediately gave him another hard drive and my old photos are back. The one above is from the UK trip in 2007. I had to post one, right?
I am Mridula Dwivedi and I started blogging on 'Travel Tales from India' in June 2005. I renamed it Travel Tales from India & Abroad in 2016. Within a few months of the launch my travel blog found a mention on both the BBC and The Guardian. I also featured in a National Geographic Skoda Yeti Video.
I quit my job as a professor in May 2015. I am having a blast ever since. I do not miss my work but sometime I do miss my salary! Somewhere along the journey I ended up acquiring a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur! I now wonder why?
