Resolutions for the New Year

Since, its the New Year and it is sort of nice to have some resolutions, here are my ones.

  1. Lose Weight - This has been at the top of my list for the last few years and as usual I have not lost a single kilo. So, this year I am renewing my resolve to lose weight. But, what I will also do is to have a plan for losing weight systematically.
  2. Spend More Time with the family - Work has seemingly taken over my life and time spent with the family has been on the decline. Utilization at work is a highly monitored metric. Resolving to have high "utilization" at home & with family as well.
  3. Make money - 2008 probably would be a year where it would be difficult for all market players to make money. My target is to preserve my capital and make atleast 15-20% returns by end of the year.

Review: My new ebook reader - Infibeam PI

I bought a new ebook reader. It is the Infibeam PI ( . I have seen and used both the Amazon Kindle and Sony ebook reader. The main reason I selected the PI is because it was available in India. I did not have to wait for weeks to get my hands on it.

I will not go into detailed comparisons between the three readers I have used. The reason I bought the ebook is to read books. Although that sounds rather a stupid thing to say, I found some features on Kindle quite superfluous to book reading. Like the space consuming keyboard. I dont know of any book which comes with a keyboard, so why should an ebook come with one. If I have to surf the net, I will use my laptop to do it.

The whole buying process was easy and seamless. Delivery happened within 3 working days. The only regret I had was my father was not there to see this. He was pretty excited with the concept of an ebook reader and I had entrusted him with the duty of checking the condition of the parcel when it arrive…

Book Review: Let's Do Lunch by Roger Wilson

I read this book sometime back as part of my journey of understanding food and how it affects the body and mind. In the last two years I have managed to lose about 10kgs of weight and in the process have learnt a fair deal about food, although not enough to talk authoritatively with a nutritionist.

Roger Wilson's book deals mainly about how the author lost a significant amount of weight himself after trying his own diet plan. The diet he followed was eating fruits and proteins. His lack of fundamental knowledge of nutrition makes his commentary a suspect from the very beginning. This book is more a chronicle of the authors weight loss journey than a guide to healthy eating.

Conclusion: Better to avoid.
