Before you think that we have completely disappeared, here we are !
All of us have been spending time figuring out several things about Ranan - where are we headed? What do we want to do? How do we achieve what we want?
And one of the things we want to do is to definitely breathe life into this blog ...so soon you will be hearing a lot more from us.
