Recent Fun Things I've Done
I intend to occasionally digitize pictures (now that I found out
how easy it is to do!! --Dilip 1/1/95) of neat things like my
travels or perhaps this March of my blooming weeping cherry and
fruit trees! Do take a look at
my Bike Friday page to see pictures of my high performance
bicycle that I had custom built in early 1995 and ...
that folds into a suitcase! Also, I put up
pictures of my house right after it was painted
purple in late 1999. (You can click on many of the pictures to see a larger version.)
On April 4, 2004, I met Presidential candidate
Dennis Kucinich at a talk he gave in Carrboro, NC.
In mid-December, 2003 Suzette Andrea
contacted me when she found some of my vegetarian resources via web search, such as
Triangle Vegetarian Society that I lead.
She is part of an intriguing Los Angeles area group of models,
Vegan Vixens who,
led by Sky Valencia, are putting together a television program to turn people on to vegetarianism.
When I was visiting Long Beach at a conference in late February, Sky invited me to her birthday
party; here you can see me with Vixens Kim as well as Suzette. You can see a few more pictures
from that evening at dilipb.smugmug.com/gallery/73398.

On December 3, 2003 at the 3rd annual IBM Research Triangle Park employee art show, I displayed this
approximately 8"x8" print of a
that I photographed Jan. 18, 2003. I had it matted with 4" margins the night before
displaying it and picked a red to bring out the veining in the orange.

My parents had a nice birthday party for me in December 2002.
One of my biggest heros is Mahatma Gandhi; I was excited that his
grandson, Arun Gandhi of the Memphis, TN
M.K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence,
came to the UNC campus on October 3, 2001, to talk about peace and nonviolence in
the post-September 11 world. I was in awe of hearing him - he has the ideals of his
grandfather! - and of actually meeting him!

I stayed on after a business trip in Long Beach, CA, to visit with
my cousin and my college friend Kathleen in Los Angeles, and friends
in San Diego in March 2001. You can see
pictures that Kathleen took
while I went sightseeing with her and her lovely daughter, JoyAnne, on March 2.
I have enjoyed the 5-Boro Bike Tour
in 1989 and then in 1999 as shown here. It is a fun event held the first Sunday of each
May. Some roads in all five of New York City's boroughs are closed to cars and
open for bicyclists on this tour - including sections of the Brooklyn-Queens
Expressway and the FDR Drive, as well as the entire lower deck of the Verrazanno Narrows Bridge!
This year there were more than 30,000 bicyclists! You can see my friend
and me waiting to get going near Wall Street.
Here are several pictures of my dear cousin Tara. The first is
her 8th grade picture from fall 1997 - she's 13.
She is a big fan of Dean Kane, who plays Superman. The second picture,
I believe, is her 7th grade picture from early 1997.
My Bike Friday, which I received at the end of March 1995.
I hope to have some better pictures of my bike soon.
(You can see
this and other pictures of my new bike on my
Bike Friday page.)
