हज़ारों ख़्वाहिशें ऐसी कि हर ख़्वाहिश पे दम निक‌ले
बहुत निक‌ले मेरे अर‌मान लेकिन फिर भी कम निक‌ले
– ग़ालिब
Thousands of longing, each one to die for.
Many were fulfilled, but still too few!
- Galib

Here is a partial list of all the wishes I'd like to fulfill before I die. Prepared it after watching Dasvidaniya and saw such a page on Kartik Mistry's Blog. 
(Note - The below list is prepared keeping my budget in mind.)

  • Visit all the states of my country - India.
  • Write a book.
  • Visit all the 7 wonders of the world.
  • Donate money in some hospital for treating poor children free of cost or at negligible cost.
  • Learn to play Piano and Flute.
  • Even though I have studied in English Medium throughout my schooling and college, I love my mother tongue Gujarati more than English and I would like to make conscious efforts to keep Gujarati alive.
  • Learn to catch snakes.
  • See India-Pakistan border in Kutch (Gujarat), Rajasthan, Punjab and Kashmir.
  • Attend Manhar Udhas' live concert of Gujarati Gazals and Sai Bhajans.
  • Donate my eyes. Read this post.

  1. ચી.ભાઈ યશપાલ,

    મારા 'મધુ પુંજ' ઉપર વર્ચ્યુઅલ પિયાનો મુકેલ છે, જે તમે કોમ્પ્યુટરના કી બોર્ડથી વિના મુલ્ય વગાડી શકો છો. ૧૯૬૪ની સાલમાં ભાવનગરની ભાવસિંહજી પોલીટેકનીકની અર્ધવાર્ષિક ટર્મ ફી ૫૬ રૂપિયા ના વાંધા હતા એટલે ૧૩ મહિના મુંબઈમાં રિજર્વ બેંકમાં કારકુની કરી. પછી એવું શું બન્યું કે સિંગાપોર, મલેશિયા, થાઈલેન્ડ, ઇન્ડોનેશિયાયા, કોરિયા, જાપાન, શ્રી લંકા, દુબઈ, બહેરીન, કુવૈત, અમેરિકા, કેનેડા અને મેક્ષિકોની ભૂમિ અનેક વખત ઘમરોળી ! બાળપણ ના બધાજ સપના મારા જીવનમાં કેવી રીતે સાકાર થયા તે જાણવા મારી ઈ-બુક 'અંતરના ઊંડાણે' થી વાંચવા મારી તમોને ભલામણ છે. તમારા પણ સપના જરૂર સાકાર થશે, જો સાચી દિશામાં આગળ વધશો તો - yK

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…

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 …

Online Courses

I love the idea of sharing knowledge. Off lately, I have seen much action in the MOOCs (Massive Open Online Course). With the proliferation of the Internet amongst the masses, this knowledge sharing helps many students to get access to one of the finest courses and teachers from best universities in the world. Be it Harvard, Michigan, Stanford or our very own IITs - all these universities have started sharing their courses in an online format over the Internet.


The best thing about these online courses is that the student gets an open forum to discuss the things that they have learned in the courses. Also with the use of various tools, students can submit their assignments online and the teacher can grade the students.

Some of the websites that provide great learning resources are :
