He would stand at the gate to our house during exam time and do a mini-drill :


Being on time…

Why are Indians known to be late? Are they, really?


I have come across various articles where Indians are quoted to be late for their appointments or to the work place.

My Coffee Maker

One-of-a-kind, modern yet very very vintage.

Why I cannot stop writing….

Buyer Beware


Shopping online is one of my favorite ways to get what I want at a price that I can afford. There are loads of flash sales, discounts, and even coupons for just about every…


Every Great Story Ends


I couldn't tell you exactly when, but at some point during my education, I learned that stories have a beginning, a middle, and an end. Of course, that was back in the…


Free transportation for life


I've been privileged to be able to own both of Tesla's models (Roadster and Model S sedan) over the past four years. During that time I drove 15k+ miles and…


Pay Yourself First


Research, workout, or write down your thoughts each morning. Don’t check email, as that’s paying someone else.


Just write


I was stuck. I’ve been meaning to get back to writing for a long time. I tried; but to no avail. “Why the heck is it so difficult?”—I thought.
