Sometimes it is rock climbing or skateboarding. But always at the back of my chameleon brain is...

How to Stop Smoking?

When I entered carrying my travel bag, it was already foggy with cigarette smoke which was accentuated with a tired yellow bulb glowing in the middle of the room. Immediately the smoke watered my eyes and led me to a coughing spell. My course mate, then, offered me the poison stick and I accepted it readily to try it out. Amongst the three of us, I was a non – smoker. And I became a smoker from that instance for next 11 years....

Race Report – Bhatti Lakes Ultra 100km – 2015

I reached home on 26 September with a terrible viral fever. I was coughing, sneezing and had very high fever. On top of...

7 Books on Running I Read And You Should Too

I have been running for over a decade now but only a couple of years back I actually started to enjoy it.
