Rujuta Diwekar

Warning: Sitting is the new smoking!

Don’t lose out, work out! is all about staying fit. It is a very informative book on fitness, which tells a lot about the human body, heart and dispels quite a few myths associated with exercise and fitness. Rujuta Diwekar has written a book that has educated an ignorant jogger like me on how to stay fit the smart way. Off course staying fit is all about sweating, but Rujuta tells us the smart way of doing it.

Book Review: 2 States by Chetan Anand

two states chetan bhagat

I bought 2 States by Chetan Bhagat on instinct. It looked good sitting in the shelves of Liberty Books and I just picked it up. It is a fiction which describes the story of love marriage. Love marriages are not very common in India and Pakistan as we still believe in arranged marriages. Its actually a very complicated affair; boy meets girl, they fall in love, boy has to love her parents, girl has to love boy’s parents, girl’s parents and boy’s parents have to love each other, if the girl and the boy want to get married. If anyone out of the above is not in love with the other, the whole equation becomes imbalanced to the point of falling apart and love takes a back seat. So Chetan Bhagat tells this story in a very amusing and fun filled way.

Indulge yourself in Ice Cream with Magnum Pakistan



There existed certain consternation in my son’s mind as we drove towards his school for a parent-teacher meeting. He was expecting not a very good result in the monthly assessments, but on the contrary he got above 90%. How was a father to reward him for a performance that far exceeded our expectations? I had this surprise visit planned for my family but just could not spare the time for it. So I drove them straight to the recently opened Magnum Pakistan (Karachi) in Clifton, near Boat Basin to be exact! The drool on my younger son’s face was obvious and the family was more than happy!
