Diary of a Wimpy Kid

I love to read diaries. Especially those written by small kids because those cute little diaries portray the innocence of small children. For example, I've read a few pages of the Diary of Young Girl (Anne Frank). And recently, while there was a sale going on Amazon, I purchased "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" by Jeff Kinney.

The Wimpy Kid series is quite popular amongst the kids with 9 other releases and a movie based on it.

The other Wimpy kid series include [Click the below links to buy them from Amazon India] :
Jeffrey "Jeff Kinney" is an American game designer, cartoonist, producer, actor and author of the Wimpy Kid Series of books.

In the Wimpy Kid series, Jeff writes about the daily struggles of a boy named Greg Heffley in middle school.

I haven't read the whole book, but read a few initial pages and was impressed by its satirical narration.

For example, Greg makes it clear to the readers that its not a diary, its a JOURNAL. I'd like to quote him : 

First of all, let me get something straight: this is a JOURNAL, not a diary. I know what it says on the cover, but when Mom went out to buy this thing I SPECIFICALLY told her to get one that didn't say "diary" on it.
So just don't expect me to be all "Dear Diary" this and "Dear Diary" that.
Later, on the next page, he writes his childish thought on being rich. He writes:
The only reason I agreed to do this at all is because I figure later on when I'm rich and famous, I'll have better things to do than answer people's stupid questions all day long. So this book is gonna come in handy.

Next he starts writing about his middle school and how he is stuck there with a bunch of morons.

I liked the way in which the diary (oh sorry, JOURNAL) has been written accompanied with funny cartoons.

Recommended for all the kids above 7. Also a good read for elders.

We Have Lost Touch With Humanity

I was reading Robin Sharma's - "Who Will Cry When You Die?" . Love reading the book because I can start reading from any page. And each small lesson of these little book provides food for thought. I read this book whenever I'm short of time, but want to read. It is great. A small excerpt from the very first lesson of the book: We can fire a missile across the world with pinpoint accuracy, but we have trouble keeping a date with our children to go to the library. We have e-mail, fax machines and digital phones so that we can stay connected and yet we live in a time where human beings have never been less connected. We have lost touch with our humanity. We have lost touch with our purpose. We have lost sight of the things that matter the most. Isn't it worth pondering? We're busy checking our phones and emails every 5 minutes but we forget to check our purpose, our goals and our family members. We continuously try to refresh our news feed on Facebook

Updates - 7 can be found here Winter has approached. And as usual, I'm motivated to remain fit. Hope this time the motivation remains throughout the year. Have started running. However, it's a different story that I'm running less and walking more. But the important thing is, the needle is moving. Apart from running, have also started doing a few stretching and upper-body exercises . My initial goal is to complete 5 km run. Became member of Central Library, Gandhinagar and read 2-3 books namely, 1. The Palace of Illusions 2. Curfewed Night and currently reading Akoopar (Gujarati). In between I also read Chetan Bhagat's The Girl in Room 105 Rudraraj and Rivanshi are not here in Gandhinagar. So I can engage myself in Running and Reading. Lets see what happens once they are here.  Eagerly waiting for this years' Ahmedabad National Book Fair. This time it's in November (winter season) rather than May (Summer season).

10 Things To Do When Your Vehicle Breaks Down

I'd been for a doctor's consultation in Ahmedabad today. While I was going to Ahmedabad, it wasn't raining. While returning back to Gandhinagar, it started raining. It was pitch dark and the visibility was less due to the heavy downpour. And then a bad idea came to my mind. What if my vehicle breaks down at this moment ? So I got my topic for 10 ideas . Here are 10 things to do when your vehicle breaks down: Enjoy the rain and forget about going home. Park your vehicle at some safe place and ask for a lift/free ride. Call a taxi. Call a friend. Walk up to your home. Stay at the same place the whole night and observe the nature and the surroundings. A bad idea but it would definitely be an adventure. ;-) Try to repair the vehicle.  Call a mechanic. Stop a truck and carry it to your place. Leave your vehicle and buy a new one. Very bad idea ;-)
