My friend I, always argue or rather discuss where to buy books online. He is loyal to a particular store. He argues that, though he gets a little raw deal compared to other sites, he is content with the service it provides, for it truly is quick and delivers on the promised day. I differ with him and my principle is ‘Buy where it is the cheapest’. I tell him, I don’t mind waiting a little longer as it would be the same product in the end you would be getting.

Some of my views have changed since I started reading on the Kindle on my commute in the morning. I didn’t want to edit the previous article, but to add some new views, for the views expressed earlier are real and still valid.

The name ‘Kindle’ has always caught my fancy. What am I going to kindle? Or is the device inviting me to Kindle it and know more about? Choosing a verb for a product name is interesting.
Though Kindle is a very popular device in the west, it is completely an alien device in India. I have never seen it even in...

Exercising after a long break, brought back the reminiscences of my high-spirited work out 2 years ago.
When I look back to those days, when I started going to gym, it leaves me amazed by the spirit and enthusiasm I had then in knowing about bodybuilding. I read a lot about workouts and nutrition on the internet, collected tons of material, prepared exercise routines, read volumes of books, experimented new exercises every now and then…I think I’d never be able to muster all...

A mail appeared in my inbox about a trip to a nearby forest. It mentioned about a day in forest to volunteer some work there. It sounded quite exciting. Though the actual motive behind the trip was not very clear then, except for a vague idea that some estimation of forest resources has to be done, with my increased interest in travelling in recent years has prompted me to nominate myself, though all my teammates opted out citing heat and social responsibilities. And moreover with...
