About this Blog
If I had to continue doing what I did prior to July 2011, there would have been no [formal] retirement. However, my family members held a strong view that we must “live together” for the years that we still have with us, without the career-dominated-time-management encumbrance on ‘our’ time. I also was nurturing desire to test myself to be able to live the life to its ‘fullest’ on the fodder of ‘my hobbies’, purely as source of mental fitness & stamina as well as joy & happiness.
Hence, I am “retired” person at present.
I have aimed to gainfully utilize the time available by following these guidelines:
- I / We shall plan time as we choose, rather than being dictated by the external circumstances
- By seriously pursuing the till-now-half-heartedly hobbies so as to reach a respectable level of proficiency in the respective area.
- Accord high priority to high physical stamina activities and healthy diet in the daily routine.
- Accord higher priority to quality time for the family and the friends.
Pursuant to this, I would be documenting my erstwhile habit of informal expression of my thoughts and reactions to what I read and what I listen in this blog. Incidentally my reading hobby covers unbounded variety of, primarily English and Gujarati, fiction and non-fiction literature whereas I like listening to pre-1970 Hindi Film songs, Gujarati Songs, ghazals and Indian classical music.
I also intend to develop the virtual internet-connected network of amateur and professional bloggers having similar interests.
