As a daily exercise, I love to read the New Yorker archives, where Malcolm Gladwell writes articles.
The link is: http://www.gladwell.com/archive.html

Thoughts on simple things in life are expressed. Why do we behave in a certain way? Why do some one tells a story while another gives a technical/ dispassionate account of an event? What does a person's gesture, hand movements swaying really convey? How can a person read another's mind?
Topics which are at once challenging as well as refreshingly new...

Having been out of Kolkata for nearly 6 years, it is really odd for me to hear everyone talking in bengali, to let the thought sink in that I am actually working in my hometown...Usually happens when when I am conversing with someone. I start talking in English or Hindi, only to realize that the person is a bengali. I have been asked by several people, Are you a bengali? People feel I am not.
It's so ironic - when I am outside Kolkata, I am branded as a bong. When I am in Kolkata, I am asked where I belong.

Work's good. The excitement to make a difference, however small it may be, is great. Hopefully, I'll be able to do that.

Met an ex-colleague of mine. He has some 10 years of work-ex....far senior to me. Completely tech guy...and when conversing I realized how different the tech world can be.

:D
