Week 37 of 2019

The rains in Mumbai are not allowing any activity other than those absolutely necessary such as going to the gym and getting to work. This week also saw me finishing with Season 3 of Game of Thrones. Phew.

Week 35 of 2019

It looks like you recuperate slower once you’re on the other side of 30! I’m still recovering, the cold, though, acting stubborn and remaining with me. The consequence is I havent been able to workout, and I miss it.

Other than that, the opthalmologist I visited said that my vision was even better than his. There, at least, vision is A+. 🙂

Work is keeping me busy, and I’m grateful for that. My mind is occupied for at least nine hours; works for me.

Finally, it’s raining again in Mumbai as it enters one of the most important festivals – Ganesh Chathurthi.

Week 34 of 2019

It has been extremely busy at work. Even my friend these days asks me, “How busy I am?” If you ask me, on a scale of zero and honey bee, I’m the queen bee gathering honey for her colony. 😀

Health has taken a toll. Hopefully, it’s just exhaustion and a little rest should make it right.

Week 33 of 2019

I am going to term this week as the week of self-care and pampering.

The workouts are rocking and the indulgence in some self-care absolutely essential. I love going to work, and I totally love what I’m doing.

Book 14 of 2019

Name: Raavan – Enemy of Aryavarta

Author: Amish Tripathi

Genre: Fiction, Mythology

Pages: 374

Publisher: Westland

My rating: 3/5

I like the way Amish brings out the humanness of those we were taught to revere, and so I read his books. I still prefer the Shiva trilogy and the first book of this series but I’m definitely looking forward to the next one.

In this one, we see Raavan as never before (at least for me). The character that stood out for me, however, although subtle and secondary to that of Raavan’s strong one, was that of Kumbhakarana – silently intelligent, caring, and an overthinker like me. 🙂
