The art of learning
When dancer-choreographer Navtej Johar works, be it his productions or the vocations he juggles in, boundaries cease to exist.

Driverómaximise distance
The distance the ball travels after being hit with a driver is a combination of carry (flight) and roll. If the fairway is hard, the ball would roll and therefore we would like to have a ball which has less backspin so that it could roll more. If the fairways are wet and soft, we would need a ball which apart from high launch, has a higher rate of backspin so that it carries the furthest. Golfers, who hit a draw, have a lower backspin rate and therefore would require a driver which gives them a little more backspin which could make their ball carry more. Golfers, who tend to slice the ball, have a higher rate of backspin caused by a steep angle of approach and therefore have less roll. They would need a driver which has less backspin, so that the ball could roll more.

It's lonely out there 
It was sad, a few days back, waking up to the news that Robbin Williams, the renowned Hollywood actor had committed suicide. The cause was depression. I wondered, people who the world dotes on, the die hard fans who would do anything to get a glimpse of their favourite star, die lonely lives...Those whose hands people would die to hold, die wanting to hold a hand...
