No smoke without fire-World No Tobacco day

Indulging in a puff or a two is usually associated largely with the ‘cool’ quotient. Probably this is why we see that cigarette finding its way into the hands of high school and college students.

Back on track

They say life comes around a full circle. This was experienced at the IDBI Federal Life insurance Mumbai half marathon stadium run last year in June.

When I was in college, the prospect of doing a Management degree never fascinated me. I somehow refused to follow the usual norm of engineering, MBBS or MBA and decided to create a path of my own. Probably the fact I was right brained and showed more aptitude towards areas like communication, human behavior and people, had something to do with it.
