Antony, Did You Live a Life?
Write a letter to your 100-year-old self. Living too long is a risk too. That is what I have learnt from the field of Insurance. I lived a life less ordinary. Been there done that kind. Have I done enough to live this long. Celebrating 100 years of life is no what I will be…
Shopping is Adaptive and Equally Therapeutic
Where would you go on a shopping spree? I would like to do that on the streets of Sri Lanka. This country has a lot to offer in terms of quality materials and value for money. It is vibrant and has plenty of Indian fashion imbibed in its culture. The hues and shades of Buddhism,…

Phinnaeus: Why I like English Subject
One of the best investment decisions I took in my life was in 1999. It did not involve money but it was necessary to make it. I pronounced, “English will be the only language allowed in my family. No conversation can be in Malayalam or Hindi”. It was not a welcome move. Many of my…
