    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 mahesh.verma@apexmedia.co.om

Ramadan Mubarak…may this holy month bless everyone with good health, togetherness and happiness and may peace and tranquility reign in your lives. 

Easter traditions
    April 23, 2019

A very Happy Easter to all those who celebrate the occasion and also to those who don’t. Easter was actually the day before (logically Easter Sunday should fall on a Sunday, and so it did!) but as the TT appears only on alternate Tuesdays, it sort of makes logical sense to wish everyone a belated Happy Easter today.

It’s A Double Nelson

This one is a Double Nelson...my 222nd TT!

Beware the protos of Aprilios
    March 26, 2019

It is now time to say good-bye to this month, which started off when people began ‘to swerve and to stare, and be as brainless as a March hare’ aiding and abetting the madness which is now waning, as the last vestiges of March now blends into the foolishness of the April month, which has been best described by David Lehman as the month where there is “too much thesis, too little antithesis, too many novels, too few poems,
too many poets, not enough poetry.”

Beware the Ides of March
    March 12, 2019

Beware the Ides of March…and even though it’s still three days away, it does makes sense to be cautious. In 44 BC, Caesar didn’t follow the soothsayer’s advice, and you do know what happened to him? Brutally or ‘Brutusly’ murdered by his so-called friend Brutus and the other fellow senators baying for his blood, akin to the cawing of a murder of crows. Nothing to crow about though, but ‘here was a Caesar, when comes such another?’
