Our dear friend Rusi Sorabji writes…. I attach something I wrote about friend, ASPI Engineer*, the 17 years old should go down in the annals of World Aviation better than the likes of Alcock & Brown, Charles Lindbergh, Emelia Earhart, Amy Johnson and to correct the continuous mis-information that is floating around that it was Man Mohan Singh that came first in the Aga Khan Race. Even as late as last year I saw an article in the Indian press stating Singh came first, but do not find anybody fro...

Burnt out: is the exhausting cult of productivity finally over?

In the last decade, employees have been encouraged to see work and life as interchangeable, and to hustle ever harder. But the pandemic has brought a new reckoningIn the US, they call it “hustle culture”: the idea that the ideal person for the modern age is one who is always on, always at work, always grafting. Your work is your life, and when you are not doing your hustle, you have a side-hustle. Like all the world’s worst ideas, it started in Silicon Valley, although it is a business-sector th...

Hungry for Higher Education

Life has undergone some drastic changes for most of us in the past year.

Should I Put Solar Panels on My Roof?

I’ve always wanted to install solar panels to generate our electricity needs. It just never made sense for us because we’ve been talking on and off about moving for the past few years. Still, the fact that you can pay a one-time fee to avoid paying the monthly electricity bill forever kept me interested. After we moved last year, we decided to shop around for solar panels. The salesperson made us think that we can recoup our costs in three to five years or less, but those numbers are filled wit...

How Much Do You Save If You Live Abroad?

In fact, there are more friends and family of ours living in Hong Kong, Taiwan, or Canada than where I live. Moving to any of these places wouldn’t be much of an adjustment because the connections we hav...
