Looking back through January 2017 at the Lounge

January 2017 was a remarkable month for both Shipra and myself. After coming back from our rather short vacation from Australia (hey, 20 days there is not much, ok!), we got down to business, along with preparing to move homes within Mumbai. That should explain infrequent postings over some days as the lack of Internet kills it. We are settling in just now, and are trying to do our best currently to keep you posted with everything as it happens. The much requested credit card strategy should also be out soon.

Here are the most read stories of January 2017
