Its been exactly a month since my last post. I’ve been busy traveling in India for a field study project towards my MBA and also getting a bit of vacation in as well. The project involved studying the impressive operations of Akshaya Patra, a non-profit organization which feeds over a million kids a day as part of a school lunch program. I traveled to 10 different cities, finally saw the Taj Mahal along with various assorted forts and palaces, and spent the new year in Goa (where Jason Bourne’s girlfriend died in one of the Bourne trilogy movies).
I also read a lot of good books, one of which was Shantaram, probably the best fiction book I’ve read in a long time .No, it wasn’t the best piece of literature but it was immensely entertaining (in the way that a Bollywood movie is). Other interesting books were Outliers, SuperFreakonomics, and Jack Welch’s Straight from the Gut.
Classes have started again and the first couple of weeks are always busy. But I’ll try and post a full-year total of my dividend and online income as soon as possible.
Wish you all a happy new year!
