Work Routine in Life

Some people need to have a well-defined routine in life. They follow that routine diligently and any deviations from it are despicable. For others, routine is abhorring. They much rather “go with the flow”. I am in the first group. It is important for me to have a well-defined routine. I get fairly disturbed if my routine is interrupted or disturbed in any way. I am open to changing my routine over time, but it is usually not a sudden impulsive change.

Knowing myself, I have set about to fix a routine for myself which will help me put focus on my life's priorities: Health, Friends & Family, Career and Money.

Here is the outline of the plan (open to changes):


Between 6:30-7:00 AM – Rise and Shine :-)

7:00-7:30 AM – Walk for 30 mins

7:30-8:15AM – Daily dose of Newspaper (Telegraph, Business Standard, Anandabazar Patrika)

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.
