How I Wish I Could Be That Same School Going Kid

Last Friday I'd a small surgery (which turned out to be a little lengthy one.) Lasted for almost 3 hours.

I took a few days off after the surgery. Will be going to office from tomorrow.

I've been away from my mobile phone as much as possible these few days. And I feel that mobile phones have really robbed the simple pleasures of our lives. And also rob our precious time.

I've almost started hating mobile phones/tablets/laptops - anything that distracts my mind with utter nonsense stuff (FB, Whatsapp, Messages, etc.)

While being away from my mobile phone I was thinking that we've missed so much just after phones and Internet came in our life.

First it was the TV that invaded our personal lives and thoughts, and now its the phone and Internet.

I somewhat cried and missed my old school days.

Days when I had ample of time to play, read, study and still attend mandatory time-consuming things like school and coaching.

I had so much of time to do all the things I wished. It was a carefree life.

The thing is - life is still the same.

It's just that we have made it complicated.

And the tragedy of our life today is that we let die us inside of us while we live.

We have allowed these electronic devices to invade our lives and our personal space. In turn, we are getting more distracted, our concentration span is decreasing and we are constantly running short of time.

I would urge my readers to think over it and enjoy life without making it complicated.

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 ;-)
