Writing With Hand

Ever since I've finished my college education, I've missed writing. Writing with hand. Sometimes it seems ages that I'd written a page or two.

I'm very much fond of writing on paper. Most of my work is done by writing on the keyboard. And as a result, I miss the feel of using a pen and writing in cursive on a plain sheet of paper.

Recently I'd to write a lot while we were being imparted with in-house training in the company. I found that I've lost the speed and the ease with which I used to write. Even my hand started paining after writing a few lines. We had an exam after the completion of the training and I was the last one to finish. I scribbled until the examiner came to my desk. I'd many thoughts in my mind, but my hand could not cope up with the thoughts.

I used to write my thoughts on paper sometimes and then would again type it out and publish on the blog. But that practice gradually disappeared. Now, most of my blog posts (including this) are directly typed onto the keyboard.

I miss the days when in school and college we had to finish our homework by writing with pencil and then pen.

There are benefits of writing with pen and paper. It can act as a personal productivity tool. It helps in concentrating on your thoughts and there's no one between you and your thoughts. Also, writing with hand is better when your thoughts are flowing at high speed. At least, I can't cope up with the speed of the thoughts while I'm typing. At such times, writing with pen and paper is the optimal way.

So, I'll try to write at least a page a day using pen and paper.

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

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).

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 ;-)
