26th July - ended up doing economics and insights eco questions.. Whole day did that.. And wasted 2 hrs on wats app and joining art of living - as never tried meditation.. Just know how to run or excercise.. Can't sit peacefully.. 


Lesson learnt - ek friend ko  5 min ka msg karne ke chakar mei 10 friend se Baat ho jatei hai on wats app..toh avoid that initial friend.. Jisko jaroorat hogi.. Call Kar lega.. Last Sunday also got wasted on wats app.. Solving marital problems of friend..will not repeat it
