2022 Week 39 Update

Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in and day out. This quote is from American self-help author, Robert Collier. According to Collier, success isn’t handed to anyone. It’s achieved by hard work and what one does every day to reach their goals. The efforts need not Your efforts have to be big leaps and in huge bounds, but if one takes a realistic approach and takes small but incremental steps regularly, success will automatically come.

In my walking quest, I crossed the state of Bihar and reached one of India’s largest states, Uttar Pradesh and am about 100 km north of Varanasi and about 5000 km into my journey. I have about 1700 km to reach my home in Mumbai, which I doubt I will be able to finish this year, but one can always hope.

My reading is going strong and I have read 56 books to date this year, which is about 75% of my target for the year. I read 8 books this month and am on track to meet my reading goals for the year.

There is a shortage of wheat flour in Singapore due to the ban on exports of flour to insulate the Indian market from the global wheat crisis. India is the world’s second-largest producer of wheat.  The heatwave during the summer months parched crops and affected wheat supply domestically which has led to this crisis. And those who rely on wheat-based products like rotis and chapatis as their main carb intake are finding it very hard and rush to buy wheat flour when they hear any store has stocks of wheat flour. Hopefully, this crisis ends soon and we are back to eating the rotis and chapatis as usual.

And this is all for this week. Take care folks!
