My own domain name :)

Finally, after a spell of inactivity, I have decided to revamp my blog and get this customized domain name http://raghavabbhi.com . Thanks to blogger.com for the same. :)

My sincere thanks to all who are reading this blog and have read it. Keep watching this space now for more activity and seemingly interesting experiences.
