Important Events of 2015

1.    The year started by shifting home in Gandhingar as my landlord needed to shift downstairs and renovate the upper floor.
2.    After visiting many houses finally settled down in a pretty good house just a few meters away from where we were staying.
3.    Loved the new house and the neighborhood. It was a pleasant stay.
4.    However, we could not enjoy much over there as I decided to change college and shifted to a college in Vadodara.
5.    Students gave a grand farewell.
6.    Left Gandhinagar on 23rd March, 2015.
7.    Stayed in Vadodara college for about 3 months. Shuttled between Vadodara and Bharuch after staying for some time in Vadodara initially.
8.    Change college again and came back to my Alma-mater in Bharuch.
9.    Visited my Kutch and enjoyed a lot.
10.   Abhijit became Dad on 23 December, 2015.

As the year passes by and we move onto a new year, we need to reflect on the things that we did wrong. But this exercise seems to be meaningless unless and until we find a way out that could change us or else we are going to repeat the same mistakes again in the new year.
I have tried this “New Year Resolutions” thing many times but have always failed.

I don’t know whether to make new resolutions this new year or continue in the same way that has been all these years. Resolutions seem to be good initially but later on we forget them and again try to make the same resolutions in the coming next year.

So rather than making any new resolutions this year, I try to fulfil my old resolutions this year. Old resolutions include exercising daily, a few career oriented goals and try to read more books.
Happy New Year.

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 - 8

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). Reason: To reduce carbon footprint a

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 ;-)
