Innovative Light at Ciclo Cafe

I visited Ciclo Cafe, the first specialty cycling themed cafe in India. While taking a look around, the thing that really caught my eye was this improvised light using a cycle wheel rim. Took a photo to use it as a reference to do a similar design at the farm house.

Robert Shiller’s Devastating Takedown Of Housing As An Investment Will Have You Renting For The Rest Of Your Life

Gosh! This an article that none of the construction companies want you to read. Robert Shiller, the Yale Prof who won this year’s Noble Prize, says buying a house is such a bad investment idea. I must show this to my wife who is hellbent on buying a second apartment. http://www.businessinsider.in/Robert-Shillers-Devastating-Takedown-Of-Housing-As-An-Investment-Will-Have-You-Renting-For-The-Rest-Of-Your-Life/articleshow/24168367.cms

Experience of dining on the River

What a brilliant idea! As we were driving from Shimla to Chail, we had to cross a bridge over a small river. The one thing that caught our attention were a few tables laid out in the middle of the river. It turned out that a small time hotelier could not afford to get land to build a restaurant on the road side and instead chose the river to be his spot. The water was ice-cold but super refreshing during the afternoon. The biggest USP was the unique experience of dining on the river. He was doing wonderful business. Hats off to the guy.

I particularly loved this thatched roof setup. Most people preferred to bask in the sunlight though.

These guys were enjoying their whisky and truly chilling out.

Perspectives: Farming of the land and the mind

Ranjini Rao, Editor of http://IamPositive.in/ blog and a Digital Marketing expert with a large global IT company has an interesting take on life after watching the video on Vaksana Farms. A very interesting read. http://iampositive.in/farming/


My interpretation : It is indeed a nice way to begin a video and introduce Vaksana farms.Its always so good to be close to Nature and greenery.Did you know ? The end to end process of “Farming” teaches us one beautiful life lesson and I would like to relate this to process of ” thoughts into action ”

Sowing : Our mind is the like the green barren land you showed us.A farmer decides what seeds he wants to grow into a harvest at the beginning , which means if he sows a mango it won’t grow into a jackfruit – analogy on sowing the seeds is like sowing good thoughts in our minds

Maintenence & Cultivation process : Farmers need to keep checking the soil condition and keep watering the cultivation for the seeds similarly we need to cultivate good thoughts and good actions by being in good company and positive people and enrich our minds with good content and deeds. and bad thoughts or deeds are the weeds in our mind ,farmers ward off any rodents , organic pesticides to ensure quality output , whereas in life we need to ward off bad habits and keep checking our goals and journey on the right path .

Harvest & Fruits: Finally when it’s harvesting time not less Or more – the farmer knows when to start enjoying the fruits of his action – life is governed by law of multiple returns or karma . What you sow you reap in action :)

Kiruba, Thank you for this wonderful video it just helped me gather a different perspective.

You Can Now Officially ReUse My Business Card Designs

That’s right.  I have put all my Business Cards under Creative Commons and for most of the cards I have shared the PSD files of the designs.  This means that you can download the original source files of the designs, change your name, photo and details and have your very own custom designed cards. Visit the Business cards page here.

I have had a fascination towards customized business cards for a long time.  You might want to read this news coverage in INC magazine. There has been considerable interest from people wanting to use some of the designs.  I would mail them separately.  But then, it stuck me that I have nothing to lose by giving it all away.  After all,  most of my designs have been inspired by designs of other folks and so it’s only right for me to share it with others.

All I request is to give a link to my site or send an email if you use these designs. That’s it and nothing else.

Good luck and have fun. Cheers.
