Recognized as top IT Healthcare Leader

This morning I was thrilled to learn that I was recognized as one of the top 25 Healthcare IT leaders by IT Services Report. This came from nowhere, for neither I participated, nor did they invite me. In fact, they didn’t even validate with me before publishing. Truly an honor to see my name amongst the industry’s who is who. Deeply inspired and motivated. If you browse through the list I am at no. 11

My Story, Fifty Dollar Bill Published in Indian Periodical

Friends hope you all are having an amazing weekend. Maybe you didn’t know, here is a small trivia about me. I love writing fiction. Stories of all kind – flash fiction, short stories, proses, novella, anything that can make my mind run wild😀. Some of you may know I wrote one full-length book( currently in the last stage of editing) and writing my second book in parallel😀. On WP I have not published any of my stories, maybe some proses but not stories. Mostly because I was saving them for the publications😜.

Today, I am happy to let you know that one of my stories got published in Indian Periodical. It is a work of fiction but inspired by an incident that happened in real life. You can find the link below. Please read and let me know what you think. It will be great if you can leave your comments on the website, provided you find it interesting enough. Thank you all for your love and support

France Travelogue​ – Cannes Day 2

Cannes

Cannes, oh you beauty. The glamor, nature’s brilliance, historic monuments, and miles of sea blue settings, Cannes had it all.

Ever since France decided to make Cannes as the world’s film and arts center in the year 1946, the place had been sought after by the who’s who of the celebrity world. Be it leisurely vacation or for the shooting of films like the GoldenEye, Cannes had innumerable Hollywood’s memories canvassed all around the place. Like the locals said, if the hotels had ears, there would be untold stories to tell.

We dedicated about 6 hours to explore Cannes. This time we decided to take the train – a 20 minutes ride from Nice St. Augustine station.  Right outside the train station, there was an information center. You can get all the tour details or a city map if you would like to explore the place on foot.

We made a left from the train station and headed towards the beach,  about 20 minutes walk along the Boulevard de la Croisette.  Once we reached the waters, we made a slight right to reach the main attraction of Cannes – Palais des Festivals et des Congres.

The Petit train ride was one of the best ways to explore the city.  The train was about a 40 minutes ride and ran every 30 minutes.  One could board the train right outside Palais des Festivals for 10 Euros, children under 12 could ride for free.  The train offered a running commentary, with headphones and choice of language. I highly recommend listening to the interesting facts while enjoying the ride.

The tour would take you through the beach side-walk showcasing the famous hotels, the old port, arrays of shops, and the old town.

Palais des Festivals et des Congres was the main attraction at Cannes. We stopped by the red carpet that had graced the past and the present celebrities on its famous stairs. We took some time to enjoy the view, strolled around the beachside park, and captured some memories. The toy train started right outside the famous red carpet stairs, and we waited for our ride to arrive.

The toy train ride took us through the famous Boulevard de la Croisette. On one side we saw the elegant strip with the display of famous hotels such as Le Grand Hotel,  Majestic Barriere, and Martinez and on the other side, we saw the beautiful beaches of Cannes.

The train then looped around the Palm Beach Casino, the place where the young and the rich party. The place offered game rooms facing the Lerins Islands, an upscale restaurant, and a terrace overlooking the sea.  Shortly after that, the train took us through the branded arrays of shops through the narrow streets of Cannes.

From there the train headed towards the old town, Le Suquet. The town sat on top of a hill overlooking Cannes. The cobbled streets, the narrow pathways, and the local restaurants, all provide the distinct flavor of the history of this place which dated back to the 12th century.  The train then climbed the narrow road and stopped by an old fortress – the Notre-Dame de l’Espérance. The fortress was built in the 14th century and offered some stunning views of the old harbor and the city.

The stone roads were laid over 400 years ago and gave the reminiscent history of the old fisherman’s bringing their fresh catch to the old market(Marche Forville) alongside the rue-saint Antonie road.

After 40 minutes of the enthralling ride, we concluded our journey at the Palais de Congres building.

After a quick bite in a close-by Italian joint, we headed to the beach. The French Riviera had all kinds of beaches – Rocky, pebble, and Sand. Cannes offers mostly sandy beaches. The waves were mild and water was warm enough for us to enjoy the rest of the afternoon soaked in water and sand.

It was time to head back to the hotel and get ready for Monaco by the Night tour.

Realization

The sea of ruddy dunes silently adorned the vast canvas of the interminable horizon. Not a sign of vegetation, nor any presence of life, just enormity, and an ethereal feel making me realize I am a minuscule, so are my problems pretentiously caged by none other than my ostensible thoughts in the otherwise endless eternity of life.

Complex emotions

The pain is still raw. The words of a beautiful tomorrow are still humming but with a flair of melancholy. The time changed seasons yet her thoughts smile with a deep shade of crimson hue. In the end, the heart knows that no matter what atrocities life bestows upon you love never fades.

Positive Affirmations

For any relationship to prosper, one needs to show positive affirmations, the words of reassurance, and the touch of warmth. The display of such emotions fuels the bondage to go from strength to strength. On the contrary, silence is detrimental. It slowly but surely spreads angst and helplessness, scrapping away love from life one leaf at a time.

Love an Illusion?

Love becomes an illusion when the heart is not tuned to the desires you want to execute

Failed love

When the heart takes a turn from love it is often because of pretentious silence precipitating between two souls screaming with an eldritch tone in the wings of time

Mesh

He is an addiction she can’t wean off despite the many layers of intertwined emotions they are caught in.  She refuses to commit, for the ostensible anxieties scare her off. 

He loved her with everything he has, but often get hit by the wall of her silence. Frustrated, when he decides to leave she give him pretentious hope. And together they lived in this intricate gossamer of complexities called love.

Epitome of love

The most excruciating dilemma one could accost is when their love never gets the same fervor in return. Whether such love is beyond any transient physical attraction beholds when the love remains interminable enlightened, selflessly driven, until the end of time. Such divine love stands on a belief that one day the tides shall turn, and God seldom keeps such soul deprive of love.

Waiting

Waiting is the most beautiful feeling that I have ever dwelled in, the juxtaposition of emotions, the rattling of thoughts, and the dreams we weave, all gets fused into a confetti, filled to the brim to explode
