The Okavango Delta: The river that never reaches the sea

To be in the middle of the delta is immersing one’s soul amidst birdsong, palm trees and water lilies. An immersive experience within nature-that’s what we city folks always long for. Why else would I choose to take a pre-breakfast walk through a jungle trail teaming with hippos, elephants and lions? When during the walk, mammoth elephants blocked my way, I felt the adrenaline rush through my veins. As my heart pumped faster I knew I was truly alive. Being yet another animal amongst the wild animals in their natural setting is an excitement like no other. Welcome to the Delta. There…

Do resistance training for an ageless body

Running, cycling and other forms of cardio are good exercises but for holistic health and life-long fitness, you need to incorporate some form of strength training in your routine. Right in my late twenties, I invested all my energy in one thing only, my work. My Company, LNM Auto became my top priority. Working eighty hours a week, the growth and success I achieved, gave me a kick. The more my company grew, the more I would put effort into it. I never had time for myself or my family. Never thought about taking vacations. Then suddenly, I was hit…

That makes my daily calorie intake 148 X 12 = 1776 calories.If you wish to look like a fitness model, then you have to fine tune it. But if your goal is to get in…

My mornings and Why You Need to Claim Yours Too

If you win the morning, you win the dayTim Ferris It’s 5 am as I write this blog. I have always been an early riser. It began during my boarding school days. And for the last few years I have been waking up at around 4.30 am. Waking up early has transformed my life. I wake up this early every single day.  The average wake up time of Indians is 7:15 am. Guatemala citizens wake up the earliest in the world on average at 6:15 AM and Greece wakes up last at 8:29 AM.  So as you can see, I…

Reboot Your Life: Conquer your Anger to Find Real Happiness

क्रोधाद्भवति सम्मोह: सम्मोहात्स्मृतिविभ्रम: |स्मृतिभ्रंशाद् बुद्धिनाशो बुद्धिनाशात्प्रणश्यति|| 63||  Bhagwad Geeta: Chapter 2 – Sloka 63 Anger leads to the clouding of judgment, which results in the bewilderment of the mind. When the mind is bewildered, the intellect gets destroyed; and when the intellect is destroyed, one is ruined. During the US Open 2020, Novak Djokovic steadily extended his winning streak as he outclassed Germany’s Jan-Lennard Struff 6-3, 6-3, 6-1 in a routine third round victory. He looked unbeatable and his 18th major title seemed certain. In the next match against Carreno Busta, Djokovic had three set points. The set would have been…
