For the past 4 months, I have been seeing a whole lot of water & paper being wasted. Let me explain
In our office washrooms, there are these sensor taps which dispense water when your hand is close by. The first issue is that there is no way to reduce the force of the water. Inevitably, more water gets dispensed than what you need it for. Second is that the sensors go bad regularly which results in the taps dispensing water even if someone isn’t nearby. And given the admin cycle, it is sure to take a few hours to get that fixed.
Third is there are few folks who are obsessed with either washing their hands and/or face with so much water, that one could have a bath. Seriously you don’t need that much water and using a little less water is not going to leave your hands or face dirty. The point is to use only what you need.
We have a tissue paper dispenser where you pull sheets as you require it. I personally believe, hand dryers are a better option since only people who are obsessed with dry hands use them. And these same set of people end up using SO MUCH of paper that one could wipe your entire body with it. Using a handkerchief, which is what I do, is so much more better, both for the environment and for keeping your hands dry.
Instead of fancy taps, a regular tap which you open along with a simple hand dryer should suffice instead of fancy options
JIM HENSON: A puppeteer’s advice
This is so much brilliance. Loved it and wanted to share it right away!
We were pleasantly surprised with this place. Excellent location, overlooking The Central Park in Jaipur. Very good music, wide range of teas. We tried Kawah the first time and cutting chai on the second visit. Good food. And a lot of quirkiness.
Considering that we were here twice in 24 hours, we will surely recommend it if you are visiting Jaipur
Its been a while that we took a holiday as a family. So quite excited about taking 10 days off. Planning to cover a few places in Punjab including the much awaited visit to the Golden Temple and Wagah border.
The toughest part for me is going to be staying as disconnected as possible from work. Don’t think I will email able to stay away for long. Hopefully email on the move should be easy to manage.
Lets do this.
Johnnie Walker - From The Future
In this stunning advertisement for Johnnie Walker, we listen to a very convincing android talk about humanity and immortality. Creative was shot in Bangkok and Sao Paolo and shows people from around the world facing mundane challenges at their workplace before breaking free of their jobs.

Yesterday, it was Grandparents day at my daughter’s school and I dropped my Mom there for a few hours. She apparently had a good time. I went back to pick them up and reached a little earlier. Mom was in a lecture for grandparents and the school was just getting over.
The first to come out were kids in the nursery section, the youngest in the pre-primary section. It was a public holiday and a lot of parents landed up to pick up their kids, who would normally come by bus, probably.
The most amazing thing for me was to spot the joy the children exhibit when they see their parents and the even greater joy the parents show when the take the children in their arms. School for these kids is just 4 hours, but they are 4 really long hours :)
I end up dropping my daughter to the school bus stop pretty much every day. Its become routine. Dad drops her, Mom picks her up. The moment I treasure every day is when the bus just starts to move and my daughter stretches her neck, spots me and waves me goodbye with her wonderful smile.
It just makes my day!
We attended the JadhavGADH Musyc Festival last weekend. While the drive was quite bad, after you enter Pune, the location, the weather, the ambience and the music made it worth the effort.
This resonates at so many levels, especially since I’ve started nurturing something on my own
