Leaving for China today

Tonight I will be leaving for China. Packing is complete, courtesy my wife :-) I almost was making a mess of the start. My flight from Kolkata leaves at 2:30 am on Oct 16. I was under the impression that my flight was on Friday night. I was telling about my itinerary to my father-in-law and he told me that Oct 16 2:30 am is Thursday night and not Friday night as I was thinking. I immediately realized my mistake! So, spent fast-forwarding all my pre-travel arrangements by a day. Now, more or less everything is done. Just need to get some sleep in the afternoon as its unlikely that I will get any sleep in the night.
The toughest part of traveling on work is leaving the family behind. I specially miss my two-year old son. I spend most of my free time playing with him or talking with him. so, will miss him a lot. Next post will possibly be from China!!

Review: My new ebook reader - Infibeam PI

I bought a new ebook reader. It is the Infibeam PI (www.infibeam.com/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.
