My First Hubpage
My First Hubpage
ZanaWorld is managed by me and my wife. We both share the login information.
I signed up for HubPages in August 2008. I am writing my first hubpage on 15 Oct 2008. This is my first Hub. It is always a good idea to have a README First page.
This is the facehub of my hubpages. Though there is profile page available on the hubpage, but still I choose have an additional profile-kind of hubpage. You can consider this as an extension of my profile page! Most visitor don’t hit on your profile page. But chances are there that they might like to read your first ever HubPage published.
Welcome to ZanaWorld!
I take this as opportunity to give epigrammatic details on me. At the same time, I will also let you know what you can expect in Zanaworld.
I am born and brought up in small town about 150 KM (93 Miles) from Bangalore, India. I lived in Saudi Arabia for over a decade (for work) before returning to India. Currently I live in Bangalore (Bengaluru).
I was attracted to HubPages through a random search link. I saw here community of writers writing on various subjects. The community of hubbers here write, talk and help each other, answer questions. While doing all this, they also earn! Some of the hubbers are earning a great deal of money. But remember this is not getting rich site, though there are a few success stories.

The Desert Times
While I was in Saudi Arabia, I published a newsletter called “The Desert Times” for private circulation amongst close friends circle there. We named our group friends as Desert Friends.
One of the Desert Friend Syed Abdul Qadir wrote an interesting and informative editorial on Desert Friends in one of the issues of The Desert Times. Read the article here, it will give you some insight into what the group was all about.
I am planning to re-publish some of the articles published in “The Desert Times” written some of my friends (Desert Friends).

Although the name came later on, but the beginning of this community was when, a sales engineer new to this city of Riyadh met his old college friends at Batha in Riyadh.
Movies and Entertainment
I love watching movies. I interested in Indian cinema – watching Hindi (also known as Bollywood), Tamil (Kollywood), Telugu (Tollywood), Kannada (Sandalwood) movies. You can expect lot of articles on Indian films – specially in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam (also known as Mollywood) film industries.
I will write on my favorite actor, actresses and celebrities.
Besides movies, you can also expect some articles on Indian popular Television entertainment. I have asked my wife to write on the subject related to television, as often glued to TV set.

Did you know that I got my first email in 1994. My hotmail account was opened in 1995 (then it was own by Shabeer Bhatia, he sent a thank you note when I registered). Then my password was only 4 character long!
Travel, places and festivals
I love travelling. Recently I visited Goa (click here to read “travel for fun on beaches - trip to Goa from Bangalore”).
Goa is a wonderful place. The trip is very memorable one, especially thanks to a friend in Goa and his friend who made it doubly memorable.
I am planning to pen details are my past trips to places like Ooty, kodaikanal, Madurai and other places in South India. And will take notes when I travel in future to any exotic locations.
