I was sitting at my desk on a Saturday evening mixed with feelings of immense frustration, an unproductive frame of mind and cravings of taking a long networkless, laptopless and TVless break. After 5 hard-working and densely productive days (for me), I yet again managed to effortlessly bring myself to work to tick off some pending administrative tasks from my todo list. This I hoped would save me from inescapable long days the following week. This was my routine for 5 years.
As I sat back and looked at the screen, with all hope lost of making it a productive 6th day, having multiple ‘windows’ of MS Word, Excel, Powerpoint and thankfully, some consolation—Safari from Apple, I opened Google Maps and planned a 450 KM bike ride to Hampi.
