My new hobby
For last couple of years Iâ€™ve cultivated the habit of creating new hobbies. Couple of hobbies Iâ€™ve started in the recent past and Iâ€™ve been successfully doing is;Â
- Vagabond travel trips where in I travel to places in India in all local transport / low cost transport. In this one year Iâ€™ve travelled to Kodaikanal, Munnar, KaniyaKumari, Coimbatore, Andamans etc.
- Social media activity and Iâ€™ve become a consistent Blogger, Twitter and actively participating in Linkedin and Peerpower kind of networks.
- Long drives and finding new routs in and around Chennai.
- Amateur photography.
Other than this Iâ€™m adding an additional stuff to this list. Last week when I was in Coimbatore I visited G.D.Naiduâ€™s museum and I was carried away by seeing his collections.
I always think ahead which people thing I must be crazy. When I was in college I booked my domain name WWW.AnandNataraj.Com for Rs.4000/- then using all my savings. When my parents and friends questioned my I said when I become Bill Gates one day and when I donâ€™t get the domain I might feel bad. Though Iâ€™m not to the level of Bill Gates Iâ€™m happy that Iâ€™m the owner of the Domain name which has my name.
Likewise when I visited the museum I thought even after my death there must be something I did orÂ I used and I thought I must start collecting something different. All my hobbies are low cost or inexpensive. So Iâ€™ve decided to collect designer articles. The first in the list is a Key-Chain in the design of shock absorber which costs Rs.350/-. So what is special about this key chain is it is GMâ€™s Official Design.
Next thing in my list is to buy a designer wooden showcase to display all my collections. It is time to get stingy and save money for new goal.
