Run to work Vs Cycle to work

In africa, men run to reach their workplace. In America, men cycle to reach their workplace.

My car is under repair and my friend dropped me near the apartment entrace. INstead of walking from there, i started running towards home. Thats a 3 minute run. Then, i remembered this incidence.

During 2003, i was in south africa (Johannesburg) and i saw that people run 5-6 miles to reach their work place. In africa, most men are well built and very fit. They can run very easily for upto 10 miles without any stress or strain. I tried following one of the guy. When i look at him, his stressless face shows as if he is running very slowly. But when i tried to run with him, i got stressed out in 2 minutes. I guess it was not even 2 minutes.

News item that caught my heart's attention after a long time...

Infy founder Narayana murthy's son is Rohan. He graduated from Cornell last year, is a doctoral student in computer science at Harvard University. Narayanamurthy's daughter is Akshatha. She having just finished business school at Stanford, will go to work for ‘Lexicon’, the renowned branding firm in San Francisco.

Narayanamuthy takes obvious and deserved delight in his children saying “Once you turn 50, the biggest joy in life comes from your children.”

I am truly proud of father, son and daughter. Why did i leave the mother? Guess i have to read more of her.

Read the complete story at

Run for Life...

Kavitha has started running for 4 minutes continuously. Her peak speed now is 5.2 miles per hour. She is able to run continuously at this speed for 2 minutes. Overall she runs for 10 minutes at an average speed of 4.8 miles per hour. I am sure one day she will run more than me. Now i run 2 miles.

I was happy to hear that another friend of mine is running for 50 minutes a day (which should atleast be 4 miles) and has last 13.5 Lbs in 4 weeks.

Me singing & she listening

This is my dream life.

Very nice malayalam movie song

Joshua Sridhar has given yet another wonderful music in the malayalam movie Keerthi Chakra. Listen to the songs in raaga.

The same movie is taken in tamil called Aran. If you want to listen to the songs in tamil, listen here.

However, i liked it in Malayalam, so sweet language.

My life is made of...

We are having a real good time. Rishi is 2 months now and he is slowly recognising us. He sees us and moves his eyes if we move around him. He is yet to see us eye to eye and give us his wonderful smile. He is, however, smiling to himself. He looks at a girl in a calender all the time. He smiles occasionally looking at her.

Genuine appreciation from husband

Kavitha motivated me to run. Now i have successfully lost 35 pounds, by running 2 miles a day. But she cana only walk in the treadmill. She feared running. Infact she could not imagine how to run. She wondered how can anyone run on the same place. What if you fall? How do you stop running in the treadmill. Though she had all these kind of apprehension, she set herself a mission. Loose 35 pounds like her husband.

Six weeks after delivering baby, kavitha took her first step towards her mission. She joined back gym. The first day, i was with her to tell how to run. She was so conscious that day that she was not even able to walk. She feared running in treadmill. So i told her that she can walk and i wont increase the speed. Then she started walking in 3.2 miles per hour for a minute. Then i asked her to slowly increase the spped. She went till 3.7 and her hands didnt press the 'increase' button. Then i increased the speed from 3.4...........3.5...........3.6..........3.7.........3.8......3.9....4.0 and her legs started to pace and she started running. Ho Hoooooooooooooooooo. Atlast she ran.

She ran for a minute in 4 miles per hour and walked for 2-3 minutes. Then she ran at 4.2 for a minute and walked for 2-3 minutes. At the end of 15 minutes, she would have run totally for 4 minutes. This is day one.

On the second day, she ran for 1 minute and then walked for 2 minutes. The running was between 4.2 miles and 4.5 miles.

On the third day, she ran for 1 minute and walked for 1 minute. The running was between 4.5 miles to 5.2 miles.

On the 4th day, she ran for 2 minutes and walked for a minute for a total of 15 minutes. The running was between 4.5 miles to 5.2 miles.

When i started running, i used to get excited and run at 6 miles per hour for a minute and then get tired and stop running. But she is very calm and knows her ultimae goal. To run for 24 minutes at 5 miles per hour. That way she will run 2 miles a day. She hope to achive this target in 2-3 months time.

I hope one day, both of us will enjoy outdoor running.

I like my mom's shoulder

Sometimes Dad threatens me, but i don't get threatened by his gestures. His threatening does not stop my crying.

I like my mom best. I am so comfortable on her shoulders, i stop my crying. I know it pains her shoulders, but i like it so much.

Mom, please keep up with my demands, one day, i will stop troubling you and grow to become a big boy. I will keep you on my shoulders.

Dad, be careful. One day, i will grow to your size and will threaten you. Posted by Picasa

Rishi Crying and how he gets soothed

Rishi is crying and how my magic fingers soothe him.

Rishi is crying and how my magic fingers soothe him . See this video. This is taken from Sony DCR - HC21. It was saved as a DAT file on to my computer. I converted DAT to mpeg and split the mpeg into this small piece. Can someone tell me how to increase the clarity of the video. I am sure Sony can do better than this

You are my Sunshine

You fill up my senses like a night in the forest,
Like the mountains in springtime,
Like a walk in the rain,
Like a storm in the desert,
Like a sleepy blue ocean.
You fill up my senses, come fill me again.
Come let me love you, let me give my life to you,
Let me drown in your laughter,
Let me die in your arms,
Let me lay down beside you,
Let me always be with you.
Come let me love you, come love me again Posted by Picasa

Soothe the crying baby - Magic Solution

My baby cries , i guess its usual for any baby. But if i put him on my shoulder, he feels comfortable and stops crying. So i was wondering why companies have not manufactured an item that resembles shoulders, so that one can put the baby there and be happy.

Then i did my own thinking and came up with this idea. I place the baby's chest and stomach on this leather sofa's handle / arm rest. Its soft and provides the needed pressure on baby. My baby goes to sleep very comfortably in this as it would do on my shoulder.

So, if you are wondering on how to soothe your baby, here is the magic solution. Posted by Picasa

Nike and Me

I worked in a office close to a Nike Showroom. It was the only company operated store in Bangalore, India. I used to visit the store once a month and look for good models and dream of possessing a good pair. My eyes finally landed on this model and my mind was on it. I dreamt of it for a while.

I visited south africa soon and i ended up seeing this pair on someone's foot on an escalator. I was so impressed again by this, that i followed his footsteps for a while. After 7 weeks of staying in that beautiful city of Joburg, i came back to india and went to the Nike store and purchased this pair. This is my best pair of shoes. I use it for jogging in gym and i use it in office.

Do i have a crush on any other shoe, not really. So, i may not buy a next pair of shoe for atleast 2-3 years. Posted by Picasa

Everything Grows until cut again

My hair is g rowing back....How dare??? I will cut it again this weekend. But this will not be a total cut. This will be a different style, inspired by Dario Perez. Dont think too much about who he is. He is not a celebrity. He is my office collegue. Guess he was in military before and hence that style. Keep watching this space fpr my new hairstyle. Posted by Picasa
