Long term goal

All of the young people out there - when you are 60 years old what are the things you would want to have? What are your goals? What is your long term plan?

Money? Career? Family? Knowledge?

And what if at that age you have reached top position in the company, living in a multi-million dollar house, traveled the world, have a gorgeous family but guess what you do not have the most important thing that one needs to have to enjoy all of the above? HEALTH  physical and mental both.

Is it your long term goal? Are you taking any action on it right now?

Games People Play

I am not talking about the emotional games that people play ;-). 

I love to play Catan, Ticket to Ride and most of all Chess.

There have been many times when I took the opponent's main pieces (queen, rooks) and was confident to win but some of them still managed to trap my king without the main pieces on their side. I always say chess taught me the biggest lesson in life -

One is given everything that they need to win, some may keep complaining about the sacrificed or lost pieces and some will be busy using what they have left. It is all about winning and if you don't then nothing but you yourself is to be blamed...!

I am on and my id is rasikamahabal.

Perfect Weight?

How much weight is perfect? Well it's definition varies from person to person depending on the level of our laziness and disillusionment.

I referred to this chart - and trying to match the weight suggested by Robinson formula (for my height and age). Try it, it is pretty cool.

Lame Excuse

One may put on weight because of several reasons: pregnancy, childbirth, medical issues, bad diet etc. but the most lame excuse I have heard for being overweight is 'It is genetic!'.

The only thing that is genetic or so to say runs in the family is lifestyle, choice of diet and exercise.

I am not an exception to have used the lame reason simply because it was too convenient to blame it on genetics.

woman's name

A woman goes through the pain of childbirth but the child is given the last name of the father, our existence but the name we are known by is of the man of the house.

Married Indian women wear a black beaded necklace that shows their husband is alive and kicking, while the men don't 'have' to wear such things. 

Know any one who used wife’s money to buy a house which is legally on the man’s name?... 

I wonder if the men have anything that is named after women… I mean apart from Coco Chanel?

Red Lipstick

Shoes, a beautiful dress, new haircut, jewelry are all trivial material things, in all honesty it should not matter because people say our inner self is what matters.
Once I went to meet a friend who was down with severe bronchitis. She was wearing a nice dress and a red lipstick, she didn't look sick at all. 'You look good' I said. While pricking her skin with a needle (for her gestational diabetes) she said 'Exactly! I look good and so I feel good'.

Our physical form is strongly connected to our identity, that is how we interact with the world around us. The exterior matters as much as the interior...

Backside Front

I realized last week that the buttons side is actually the backside of this dress (that is where the label is) and I have owned this dress since last 6 years :-). It is definitely better than inside out which I have done a few times in the past  (some other clothing items) and trust me no one noticed!

As my theory goes... no one gives a shit what you wear... no one but we ourselves.

Got a Haircut

If you live in Seattle then Phase 3 & Gary Manual are the best places for haircuts. They use the best products, give the best service and Phase 3 is not expensive at all ...

We are all born with some sort of advantage - be it being born in an influential, brilliant or a rich family, being brought up in a peaceful, loving, quiet atmosphere or it can be anything from good looks, skills to great health. Do we realize our advantage? or crib about things that we don’t have? why not have a realization and make the most of what we have?

Quality or Variety?

How many of these do you require? Use and spend time with the ones that you already have or get a new everyday? What is important quality or variety? I am talking about clothes, relationships, friendships, hobbies and everything.

Black & White

Black and white are so much alike in their behavior, they look beautiful on their own and also with all other colors, they go well with each other as well… or do they? Subliminal messages?

More attractive

Who is more attractive - a person who is wearing lot of gold and diamonds or a person who is wearing fitness?

Fitness is philosopher's stone - that makes YOU look gold.

Pardon me

One may adorn themselves with clothes, makeup, accessories and shoes worth a thousand bucks but they will look good only if they are fit. This is a strong statement so pardon me if you are offended. If it makes you feel any better I said it when I weighed 175 pounds, I still feel the same way now that I am 130 pounds (and by the way I am still overweight for my height).

Feel Good...

Do you feel good when you live in a clean room or you clean your surroundings when you are feeling good? Do you feel good when you wear good clothes or the other way round?

Body is the only thing that we have from the time we are born till the time we die. We must take proper care of it and certainly not add any poisons to it.

Long lasting happiness

What gives you long lasting happiness - Consumption or creation?

For me it is creation… that is why I decided to create a blog on what I consumed ;-)
