Happy Birthday

Completed 27 years on 27th April 2013. Took a day off from the college. Vimal Pambhar was here for his final dissertation presentation at Ganpat University. I and Kiran Patel went to Mahudi (Jain Temple) on his new Activa and Anand Sutariya and Vimal Pambhar came directly from Mahesana. Our plan was to go to Tirupati Nature Park, Visnagar after taking darshan at Mahudi, but due to the summer heat we canceled the plan and returned back towards Gandhinagar for a visit to Amarnathdham, near Swapna Srushti Water Park on Mahudi-Gandhinagar Highway.

While returning back from Mahudi, a man overtook from the wrong side in his car to which Vimal showed his hand. Later the man came near us and took out a wooden rod from his car and beat Vimal on his hand. He thought that Vimal abused him with words while he was driving his car on the wrong side. Meanwhile, Anandbhai and Kiran too came. Seeing them, he went away driving his car.

After visiting Amarnathdham, we came home and rested for a few hours. In the evening we went to Akshardham to see the water show. On reaching home, Vimal and Mahesh had planned to celebrate my birthday with cake. So we had the cake cutting and enjoyed it. For dinner, I gave party to Vimal, Mahesh, Tushar Trambadiya, Kiran and Anandbhai.

Next day in the morning, we watched the new movie Aashiqui 2, at Cinemax, Sector 11. Later, after lunch we visited the Akshardham museum. Then, Anandbhai left for Mahesana and after dinner, Vimal too left for Rajkot.
In short, the birthday was well spent and we all enjoyed a lot. Thanks to Vimal, Anandbhai, Mahesh and Kiran.

34 things I learned from The Last Lecture - Randy Pausch

Assume that you're on the verge of dying. You've probably a few months to live. You're suffering from some notorious form of cancer wherein you've very less hope of surviving.
And then you think that you've very less time for all the things you wanted to do, for all the things you wanted to say to your loved ones, to your children and to the world.
How would you want your children to remember you? Of what you thought about them? Your feelings for them?
A few days ago I read the book - The last lecture by Randy Pausch. Randy was a professor at Carnegie Melon University and the book and the lecture is about achieving your childhood dreams. But more than that, I found the book as a good resource on parenting.
Here are a few points that I found worth sharing:
1. If I were a painter, I would have painted for them. If I were a musician, I would have composed music. But I am a lecturer. So I lectured.
2. Engineering isn’t about perfect solutions; it’s about doing the …

Disconnect to Connect

For the past couple of days I have been reading on Productivity Tips. Have been scouring various blogs on the same.

One thing that has caught my fancy is Digital Detox. To stay away from all kinds of Electronic Connecting Devices, especially Smart Phone.

I am constantly connected to the Internet via my iPhone. Even while working on stuff that doesn't require me to be connected to the Internet, I keep my WiFi on. And this in turn compels me to check my email or browse unnecessary stuff on the Internet.

This disrupts my thinking process or my work.

Although I love being connected to my friends and family members over Whatsapp and other social networks, I don't want it to be a habit where I check my phone even if there are no new notifications.

Tip: Stay Focused with this little Google Chrome Extension

So here's my plan to Disconnect and be more Productive:
Use Whatsapp sparingly. No forwarding of that joke that you found funny or no unnecessary chit-chat.Put your email in Fet…

First Step Towards Self-Development

Off lately I’ve been constantly thinking and reading about self-development. A topic that I’d read for years while in school and college, but then I totally forgot about it.

A few blogs that I read, my own life, and the random thoughts that strike my mind enforced me to think about my own development.
I observed that I was so engrossed in the outer world. I had forgotten to talk to myself. To think about me.
These days we all are so busy with our mobile phones and the “notification world”, be it email, blogs, twitter, facebook, Instagram, etc., that we’ve totally forgotten our own world. A world where we can be alone and at peace.
Mobile phones have distracted human beings a lot. I can’t comment on all of them, to what extent they are distracted, and whether everyone feels the same or not.
We are constantly distracted by notifications. This constant supply of information in the form of Social Media, News, Blogs or Whatsapp is continuously depleting our concentration.
Our mind shuffl…
