Me and Prathap in Bangalore

After months of having a fantastic time sending silly and occasionally useful tasks to my online, outsourced, Indian personal assistant, Prathap, I was so excited that during our trip to India, I was able to meet him.

This is our hotel in Bangalore, and Prathap brought around another friend of his from the office. They work from 10 pm to 8 am because they have to work on an American west coast schedule, so right after work they came over and we had some breakfast together. We talked about:

a) How nice Bangalore was.
b) The history of India
c) Other parts of India, including where Prathap came from originally.
d) Panchakarma (the cleansing/relaxing/massaging thing my wife and I went there for and spent 3 weeks enjoying)
e) How big Bangalore has gotten in the past ten years.
f) Martial arts.
g) Calcutta
h) Traffic
i) How great a boss I am.

They also brought flowers, and told me that I was the first one from who has made the trip to Bangalore to meet my assistant in person, so that’s pretty kickass.

I haven’t been able to think of any good tasks for them recently, so I’ve slowed down with my hours, so if you think of anything you need done, let me know.


  1. I have definitely had the pleasure (read: the awesomest of awesome) of a call from Prethap, who reminded me that I cannot escape the zeitgeist.
