• Finish reading one book before moving on to the second one. Remember, you have five books to complete and three more are in the cupboard!!
  • Don’t buy books just because they are on the ‘must read’ section of some book review site. Remember 400 odd rupees spent on that award winning book? You dozed off every time you read beyond 5 pages. I hope you have learnt a lesson from it. If not, it is high time you do.
  • Getting drenched in the rain while coming back home from office is ‘sheer laziness’ . So, use the umbrella you carry and don’t be lazy. You will have to keep your nose aside if you keep getting drenched in the rain. It is already leaking more than it should.
  • Post frequently on your blogs.  Don’t spend time looking at the sky. “The sky will fall” is just an idiom. So, instead of waiting for it to fall, you can post something sane and readable in the meantime.
  • Drink lots of water. The water crisis will not end with you drinking only 4 glasses of water a day.

  2. @ Anu – :p Yeah I need to get some plumbing done for that leaking nose of mine. Blame it on Bangalore weather. It is raining cats and dogs in November. @ Shrijeet – :p LOLing is surely a word just like ROTFLing 😀

  3. Haha! I went to this book exhibition and they had 50% off on almost all books! I couldn't resist and bought like 29 novels, each atleast 400 pages fat and now my exams started. Not that I spend the whole day studying. But reading a novel before exams seems like a sin! So now they are lying around unread. They are horror and thrillers so mum can't read them either. I don't know when am I gonna find the time to read all those books!

  4. Poojjaaaa :-Dat least you read…i have a dozen unread :- and thus i have stopped buying….i love sky gazing too…but i have stopped….not really..but a one minute isn't enough either…keep the gaze i say….its blisswalk in the rain builds character….and it flows from your nose 😀

  5. @ Pooja : 29 books??Wait for the holidays. I used to do that when I was in college. I used to spend time reading the books from morning to late in the night during vacations.@ Chintan: I do find time to read. But, I have a few left unread and some books I am sure am not reading come what may. Just wasted money on them. I wish I could kick myself for it. Maybe I should ask mum to do it, she will oblige :p Yes, sky gazing is bliss. So peaceful. But you know, am waiting for the sky to fall so that I can feel it :DHe he, I get drenched in the rain because I am lazy to unfold and fold the umbrella everytime and yes , my nose is leaking 😛 I have been carrying about 3 hankies and two packets of tissues everyday during rainy season :-S
