    How are ppl handling cold weather at colder places?

    Chennai, India, where I live is supposed to be a warm HOT place and it’s just November now. I already feel so cold that I’ve been through a session of fever & cold in recent days. I prefer not to switch on the fan even during the afternoon, except when I am working on my laptop. I feel so sluggish that I don’t feel like going to the regular daily walking sessions around our home. You may not believe it but sometimes I prefer to drink hot water nowadays. I have been wearing a monkey cap over the last month or so when I sleep – to cover my ears!…

    Oh, these MLM Meets!

    On weekends, I attend meetups and events across the city. Mostly these are about marketing, business processes, social causes, or even creative skills. That’s why, when I accidentally ended up going to an MLM meet – due to a misleading title and description given by the organizer, I didn’t have a clue about what to do! MLM means Multi-Level Marketing. Basically, in the guise of making you a business owner – even a part-time one at that – they make you buy a lot of over-priced products and expect you to sell them through the ‘power of your network’. If you are unable to do that, they encourage you to…

    Diwali is a Festival of Lights. Not Sound.

    View this post on Instagram A post shared by Rajesh K (@wowsuper_net) on Oct 25, 2019 at 7:38pm PDT I take this opportunity during this festive season to wish you all a very Happy Deepavali 🙂 As usual, I prefer to add a message to make our festivals, and our lives, a little bit greener. Today, Ramya asked me if I remember from when I stopped bursting crackers for Diwali. If I exclude the one where I did burst a few crackers three-years ago, I think it’s been more than twelve years since I burst crackers. That’s some achievement, don’t you think? Anyways, this is just my preference and it’s…

    Golu at Vadapalani Murugan Temple

    View this post on Instagram A post shared by Rajesh K (@wowsuper_net) on Oct 14, 2019 at 7:01am PDT A few days back we went to the Vadapalani Murugan Temple, Chennai. We go to Temples for prasadam and stuff like that, but this time we went because of a whatsapp status that showed a video of the Golu dolls kept there for navarathri. Ya, we don’t allow such (photographic) opportunities to pass. Since it was the last day of navarathri, there was a huge crowd – not at the golu section, but to see the main deity. Unfazed, we went straight to the small queue standing to see the golu…

    Veg. South Indian Restaurant @ Royapettah: Maamis Samayal, Regenta Central Deccan

    Recently we got an opportunity to visit Maami Samayal restaurant @ Regenta Central Deccan Hotel, Royapettah, Chennai. (Google Maps link) The above-embedded video gives a few glimpses into the restaurant and the food offered there. The video also features a short interview with the main chef – Ms. Padma. If you are in Chennai or if you are visiting Chennai on a business/personal trip, it’s a good idea to taste authentic South Indian dishes made by South Indians at this restaurant. Currently, they offer traditional Brahmin-style lunch with rice, sambar, rasam, sweet, poriyal (vegetables), papad, dosa, side-dishes, and other items. It seems they also offer many types of South Indian…

    Why Renting a House is Better than Buying thru Home Loan

    One of the SILLIEST things I see people doing nowadays once they get a decent job is to buy a house. That too by taking a housing loan for more than 50% of the property value. Many times even higher. Buying a home when we have the money to pay upfront is better – except for the astronomical land values and the hassles of shared ownership in apartments. (An own house still creates inflexible lifestyles and cripples our freedom, but that’s beyond this topic.) But why take a huge loan for a very long term (10-25 years?) that too at a floating rate of interest is BEYOND ME. If you…

    Fun at Our School’s Alumni Event Today

    View this post on Instagram A post shared by Rajesh K (@wowsuper_net) on Jun 16, 2019 at 7:32am PDT Today I went to our inaugural alumni event – D.A.V.

I was given the task of overseeing the registration process – both for the existing batch that was passing out (for whom this event was mainly organized) and for alumni from previous batches from all our group schools in Chennai. I had a lot of fun going back to my school where I have a lot of fond memories. I feel childhood/school days are the best days of our life. Actor…
