Day 1 - Happy New Year!

"One admits that this artificial demarcation of the ever ebbing tide of time is unnatural, strange... But it helps to review the past and look with bright hopes forward."
                             - S.Chandrasekhar, Astrophysicist and Nobel Laureate.

[From a letter to his father, picked from the excellent book Chandra:A Biography of S.Chandrasekhar by Kameshwar C.Wali]

This quote echoes exactly what I feel about the new year.

I hope you have a wonderful year!

January is going to be another month of A-post-a-day, so wish me luck! :)

And I'll leave you with my latest article - on MOOCs, or Massive Online Open Courses, my current favourite topic!    Read it here.

Madhu, :)

Srividhya, no, haven't taken any, Srividhya. There are a couple of "Writing for academics" kind of courses available on Coursera - more for how to write for scientific journals. But they cover the basics of good writing too... what exactly did you have in mind?

Rashmi, hope you enjoy it!

Radhika, thanks, and wish you the same :)
