In our daily course of actions, we tend to do many things which we know are not good. The are bad in terms of of the negative affect they have on a living being (including ourselves). And what would we call a negative affect, abstract nouns like pain, hurt, etc. So, we know some of the actions lead to negative affect, still end up doing the same at-times! Only knowing is not maturity, but implementation is what counts.
So always aim at doing not, what you know not to do!

Just an observation of three kinds of driver/riders plying on Indian roads.
1. Those who don’t signal (indicator) while changing lanes and change abruptly.
2. Those who give signal while changing lanes, but don’t care of current state of lane before changing, i.e. if some vehicle is near and just behind on the target lane.
3. Those who give signal to change lanes, but wait and wait and wait, and don’t change! Two possible reasons, by mistake indicator has been kept on, or an amateur driver trying his best to find way out in the Indian traffic!
All three are equally dangerous enough scenarios. Remember, always show indicator (especially if in 4-wheeler) and check for if the target lane is clear enough to change to! Have safe driving…

Am proud of myself. Have been long awaiting for such a moment…. Broke all mental blockages and successfully completed couple of acts for second time in life, within couple of days! Hence the name of blog, “Power of 2!”
First, I ran 10km Hyd Run on Sunday (Nov 22, 2009) in 75 min. Had kept 90 min as the cut-off for myself to complete the race. But, was happy to keep it well within reach. Trust me, its difficult to carry a 78 kg weight for such long time and distance. Ran for 2.5 km in single stretch at the start and then the jogged and brisk-walked alternatively. It was fun, especially with the crowd cheering, hard metal music pumping the adrenaline, beauty of Hussain Sagar Lake in the early hours. Had earlier ran only 5km run. So, it was for first time, and though I had doubts of completing the race, somehow I managed to. :) Next target would be, a couple of more 10K’s and hop on-to Half-Marathon!!
Second, an act of random kindness (ARK). Donated 350 ml of valuable blood today (Nov 24, 2009). This was second time in my life too, first being 1.5 years prior to this. Was worried, but once in, there is no turning back. Its a noble cause, people, so would definitely appeal to all to donate blood generously at-least once a year. (Of-course through a well-established organization).
So, here it is, a double strike for me. :)
