License to Live!

Yesterday, late in the night, I finished reading a highly motivational and engaging book called ‘License to Live’, by Priya Kumar.
What makes License to Live even more interesting than the messages that it gives; is the manner in which the story is told. The author has managed here to constantly keep the readers on the edge of their seats. The book changes track midway to bring the reader onto a roller coaster of adventures. And the funny thing it … even if you somehow realize what to expect next, you never know in what form will it strike!
The most appealing message I found was when the protagonist meets Jade, the keeper of the present. The concept of time trap was so simple, and yet so complex at the same time. I could practically view myself in that situation a few years ago. I am sure everyone will be able to relate to the book in one way or the another, and that’s the book’s main strength.
I heavily recommend this book to anyone interested in improving their attitude, and consequently, find success in life.

The Perfect Partner – A new webcomic from my stable

Today I present to you a new webcomic I have started on. It’s a funny take on the relationship between a video game loving husband and his nagging wife, and is aptly named ‘The Perfect Partner’. You will know why once you read ahead.

I will post this web comic one page at a time on this blog, as and when the pages get completed (which means I am just too lazy to work on a deadline).

So without mincing more words, here we goooooooooooooo….

Specialization!

I came across this interesting quote from the late Science Fiction writer, Robert Heinlein. Something worth pondering upon:

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects!

Video of My PADI Certification Dive @ Lakshadweep

It’s been more than three months since I completed the PADI Open Water Certification course in scube diving in Lakshadweep.

A couple of days ago, I completed making a film on my underwater experience. I had carried an adventure cam with me (Oregon Scientific model # ATK2000). The cam captures bit low res video, but this is one tough guy!

The official specs for the camera said that the camera is ‘water resistant up to 5 meters depth’. But I took a chance with it, and it actually worked perfect for a depth more more than 16 meters! I love this gadget.

So here’s the footage of my underwater dive in the pristine Lakshadweep lagoon. The actual footage was more than 3 hours, which I have edited down to less than 12 minutes of (interesting) video.
