Reasons why you must not stop running/jogging/walking

Cheapest way to stay healthy:

No need for club membership to run on a treadmill for hours and that too in a closed environment. Infuse early morning’s fresh air running on tracks than artificial air in gym.

Shower yourself to the morning sun light. It has its own advantages.

Increases your Endurance:
Do not sprint if you are a starter. Prefer jogging or brisk walking and set a target for yourself.

Review your target daily. Do not have limitations.

I started with 5 rounds jogging and now more than a month, I’ve increased my count to 6. Remember, slow and steady wins the race.

And do not strain yourself. Rome was not built in a day. So endurance will increase only after a period of dedicated hard work.

Reduces Weight:

Running is the best medium to keep yourself in shape and reduces the extra flab on you.

Run to improve your cardio vascular system. Regular jogging acts as a slow poison in eradicating unnecessary fat in your body. But you need to be careful with your diet as well to feel the difference.

Creates Balance in your sugar intake:

Run to stay fit.

Run hard and hydrate enough to break down all the sugar in your body.

Have a balanced life.

Keeps you active:

Imagine 2 scenarios: Wake up at 8 in morning and feel lethargic whole day or wake up at 5 and feel energetic after jogging. Feel the difference.

I got rid of laziness. Say “Thank You” to your cozy bed for the last night’s sleep.

Run as much you can and feel the difference.

Time yourself. It feels good:

I started with 15 minutes each, jog and walk.

I've improved myself with extra 5 minutes now. Time yourself to observe the exponential curve touching the sky.


Do not worry about few hiccups if you miss jogging a day or two. Keep motivating yourself to come back on the tracks next day.

Speak to a friend or someone in your family who can accompany you for jogging if you cannot do it alone.

Keep yourself hydrated.

Reduce processed sugar intake, replace it with jaggery. Avoid artificial sugar.

Do not skip meals.

A Bug In My Gmail Account

Yes i have a bug in my Gmail account and that's bugging me out.

I took the screenshot as soon as I knew I had the fish on my hook.

I sent the image with bug details to Google and still hoping against the hope, that, one fine day, Google will revert back to my query with an adequate feedback.

Or, May be, Google must have given it a pass (considering the severity or the impact on end user to be minimal – just an assumption) to such a tiny-winy bug from one of their application user.

No regrets.

Without adding much curiosity, let me share with you the bug I found couple of days back in my Gmail account.

PS: I am not very sure whether it’s a bug or what but when I try regenerating the error, it did appear couple of times before I signed out from my account.

Objective: Exploring Gmail web application

Date: 21 Oct 2011

Time: 11:01 hours IST

Theme Used: Minimalist


The BACK button happened to lose its “black colored back arrow” visibility every time I opened a mail.

Although the BACK button was visible but the black arrow inside it was missing.

This happened not once, twice but couple of time before I signed out and signed in later to get the right BACK BUTTON with correct black-color-back-arrow visible while opening any mail in my inbox.


It can be an issue with web server connectivity or some graphical misalignment but who knows!!!


Well, a bug is a bug, no matter how big or small it is.

It may/may not be significant for Google and they might ignore my testimony but I do believe this bug have tendency to impact end user keeping in view the naivety of a newbie Gmail user.

This bug thus holds a good deal of importance to me!!!


No intentions to ridicule/tarnish the image of Google mail application or of Google directly or indirectly as I am a big admirer of Google and their products and using Gmail now for more than 5 years.


Mistakes can happen and bugs can appear anytime at any place.

After all, a bug is a bug...!

Till then,

Happy Reading!!!
