Migrating my blog from CMS to Laravel

Posted on 19th December, 2017

My blog has always been a way for me to convey my feelings about some of the developments and RND that I do during my work or even during my spare time. For a long time, I use to rely on a CMS for the blog. Initially Drupal and then for almost last two years on WordPress. But, this time I took a decision and changed the entire system into a Laravel application. In this post, I am going to share my reason for some of the decision that I took and some of my views which made me take those decisions.

My trip to Shrivardhan, Harihareshwar

Posted on 11th December, 2017

Shrivardhan is a small city about 180 km from Navi Mumbai and it is a perfect place for a small trip. If you have a couple of days in hand then a trip to this place would be a perfect holiday destination. It's a nice place not very far away from Mumbai or Navi Mumbai with nice clean beach and quite a few buget hotels.

In this blog post, I will share my experience with you guys along with a few pictures that I have taken during my trip.
