Marks leave no marks, so why fret?

Today the ‘so-sigh-tea’ aka ‘society’ will judge all the kids whose CBSE results came out earlier today based on the percentage marks they got. That’s pretty SAD & MAD. This is for all the kids out there...

What's NukeLeeUs all about?

What's NukeLeeUs all about?

Cell is a basic unit of life. Some organisms have only one cell, whereas others could have trillions of cells. 'Nucleus' is the one 'literally' at the centre of each of those cells. The driving 'force'.

We have further played with the word 'nucleus' for something we really stand for and believe in, 'NukeLeeUs'. It's taken me over 33 years of practicing what I preach here, it simply isn't a theory.

Children, Collaboration, and Sports!

Over the weekend I met Mr. Raman Bajaj, CEO - Educomp Childcare Pvt Ltd. He made a very interesting remark on the importance of sports for a student while discussing education, sports and my passion for fitness.

Week 1 - Launching Nuke-Lee-Us

I have come up with a very simple exercise program that can be done by anyone, anywhere. It’ll take you less than 5 minutes to do it, but by the end of 2018, you would have become super fit, someone you’ll be proud to know. 

What if these weekly progressive exercises could help you do one-hand-pushs, single leg squats and super comfortable pull-ups along with running 5 kms non-stop by the end of the year? We’ll together get there.

Murdered the treadmill!

I wrote this blog / email on 22.2.2008. Some numbers raise their head even when you don't know what they mean. And then somehow it all makes sense.

We Ran To Be Human

We human beings ran as sperms to be born, and contrary to what most of us have been made to believe, new scientific evidence shows that it isn’t a race. It is a synchronised run to the egg where all of the millions of sperms have very specific roles. All of them move. Being lazy is never an option.

Confusion about running in air-pollution?

Confusion about running in air-pollution?

Recently air quality in Delhi was really bad. Around the corner was the most iconic running event of North India. Even now its the best that it's been in last 45 days but is still poor. Here is a 60 second presentation that'll help you think even more. About more.

Do farmers deserve to be blamed for Delhi air-pollution?

About a week back on #NDTV panel discussion where I was one of the panelists, a lady belonging to #MyRightToBreathe said that farmers need to understand that their children’s lungs too will be affected because of air pollution, courtesy all the stubble burning.

Patronising the farmers by starting the sentence with, ‘we are not blaming the farmers’ doesn’t help such a condescending remark. I belong to a farming family. I know the ground reality a lot more than such air-conditioned air-purified drawing room air-pollution crusaders.

I don’t hear them talk about the farmers now. Hats off to you Faye D’Souza from #MirrorNow for bringing it up.

As for Runners, we missed an opportunity to join together and be heard on behalf of ourselves and all the poor farmers too. As has been Indian tradition over centuries, we all ‘educated’ folks got into an ego tussle amongst ourselves, rather than being heard addressing a far bigger cause. But then again how would have Mughals & British conquered India had we been missing this trait!

I’m so glad I simply don’t fit into this so-sigh-tea.

Disclaimer: I was rusticated, luckily so, in probably less than 48 hours from the above hashtag for using inappropriate language on my Facebook page 🙂 . I was a very celebrated ‘invited member’ for the time that I lasted there. Ironical that it’s only ‘their’ right to breathe. Not mine. No one else’s.

Find your rock

I got 44 out of 100 in English Grammar in class 8th. I was given 11 grace marks in Biology in class 11th. I have now been contributing for India's best newspaper, Mint, besides other newspapers. I was invited to write a book on Pain by Penguin Publications. This all happened because I found my rock. You need to find yours. Ignore all the quick sand around.
