Day74: We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope. -Martin Luther King, Jr.

Sun/Mon 30/31 Dec 2012: 12:01amElectronic City, Bengaluru And…the final day of year 2012 has begun, an year which has seen some heart-rending and most sorrowful incidences, be it the the mass killing of innocent children in US or the recent Delhi brutal rape case which took the country by storm; to say the least. I see a ray of hope, I see light at other end of the long dark tunnel. I am optimistic that Earth will be a brighter place to live in, in this coming year. I am optimistic India will shine where Women would be RESPECTED and Gender Equality will be a norm. This Sunday I slept more, cleaned my otherwise messed up room, listened to the melodious tunes of Vividh Bharti this afternoon, called family, Cooked, Ate and just chilled 🙂 Looking forward for the final day of the year.. Good Night Everyone! Narendra...

She is no more…..

Sat/Sun, 29/30 Dec 2012; 12:05am Electronic City, Bengaluru She is no more… just physically though     She was just 23. Like every other girl of her age, she had dreams to Graduate, get married, have children and live a happy family life. She wanted to LIVE, she fought hard for it, even the prayers of millions of we Indians could not save the angel’s life, perhaps God needed her more than us, and perhaps she was destined for a better place. The demise of the Braveheart has left the nation shocked with tearful eyes, and completely heartbroken. I may be mimicking many voices, but then as an Indian, I must say, I apologize to you Sister for not having saved you, and I apologize to many more sisters who have undergone such ghastly crimes by someone of my gender, I deeply apologize to you all being a MAN. This afternoon (at 2’o clock) I was taken aback on listening to Arnab’s debate on Times Now with panelist discussing on Women’s safety. I got anxious and started thinking if She is alright and after a few minutes, the news flashed, She is no more…(She died in wee hours of Saturday morning at a Singapore hospital). I was deeply saddened and (almost) cried for few minutes, for I and millions of Indians had been praying for her speedy recovery for last...

Day72: “Too often the shortcut, the line of least resistance, is responsible for evanescent and unsatisfactory success.” Louis Binstock

Friday, 28 Dec 2012; 11:30pm Electronic City, Bengaluru It had been an eventful day with good experiences. I started the day by keeping my promise, the promise I had made to the little Girl yesterday, who was promoting for the new Nutrition Centre (called Turning Point….script your future) in Electronic City. It was basically an invitation for a Body-Fat checkup and it was for free. Here’s a quick summary of my body report during my visit to the centre: Height: 172 cms Weight: 77.3 Kgs (Actual), Ideal weight: 68-70 Kg …(very much in sync with M-70) Fat%: 24.9% (Actual), Ideal for my body (as per Height and Weight): (12 -16)% BMI: 26.4 (Actual), Ideal should be in range of 18.5 to 24.9 It is clear that I need to reduce on my fat% to regain ideal BMI. The 15 minutes spent at the centre was useful. Apart from making us aware on certain things which lead to obesity, various good diets, etc, they also provided a glass of Ayurvedic drink which tasted somewhat like Green tea, a little less bitter though. In the end, came their business, which was about different packages of weight loss program, minimum being a 1 week program for 1050 INR. I personally do not encourage any short-cuts to weight-loss, I thanked them for their service and the healthy drink, and proceeded to office. In...
