Looking Back at 2016

LOOKING BACK AT 2016 To avoid any preconceived notion about me, I resisted posting anything on Facebook except photographs. Starting today, that will change. That's one goal I have for 2017. Photographs are safe bet. It's hard to judge anyone based on their photographs compared to written posts. My goal for 2016 was to complete…

Stop Using Smartphone Mindlessly

I realized today how much of a negative impact gadgets like iPhone has on my life and why we need to stop using smartphone mindlessly.

Lessons from Crying Guy

I was sitting alongside the street watching vehicles pass by when I saw a guy stop his bike. He stopped and stood there for sometime until a woman arrived (who he had probably been waiting for). As soon as she arrived, he started crying. He walked out of his bike and kept standing on the roadside crying. They talked…

Add, But Dont Abandon

When you are faced with a situation where you need to abandon a project for a period of time to make time for another project, don't go for it. I was faced with similar situation at the end of January. I wanted to write blog post every day during the month of February. Before that,…
