2021: A new beginning

Thinking | Teaching | Talking rebranded --> {P}rescription

The world moves into 2021 with renewed hope and cheer from the prospect of seeing the end of the COVID-19 pandemic. In keeping with the spirit of the new normal, I have been working on some major changes to my monthly newsletter.

I feel the need to do more, to give greater value to my readers who have been so tremendously encouraging and supportive. I am also trying to bring down the costs of my efforts by using a new provider — Substack — which does a lot more, all free. Can’t beat that!

First of all, I am rebranding myself under the banner of {P}rescription. It will consist of two sections.

  1. Thinking-Teaching-Talking (TTT) will be subsumed under the new identity but will continue as before, with more content. It can be viewed by clicking on the link shown below.

    TTT will be mailed to you at the beginning of every month.

  2. In view of my 4-decade long experience as a doctor, I will be launching a healthcare/ wellness/ productivity/ self-improvement (HWPS) - focused feature. You guessed it: it’s called {P}rescription — what else from a doctor?. It consists of a bunch of short videos concerning a wide range of HWPS items which will be of interest and value to a well-informed audience like you.

    {P}rescription will be sent out in the middle of the month.

Please feel free to send me your c omments and criticisms on these changes.

So, here goes.


Thinking | Teaching | Talking - November-December 2020

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Unlike earlier, when the email contained the entire list, I am putting you through the inconvenience of one more click. It’s in the interest of economy (for me) and workflow easing. I promise you that it will be worth the effort. Thanks.

You have 2 options for viewing the list of articles. Click on either one.

Only the list, please


SECTION 2 - {P}rescription

A set of brief videos that I make after foraging through current ideas, suggestions, debates in healthcare/ wellness/ productivity/ self-improvement (HWPS) will be mailed to you in mid-January 2021. Stay tuned.


You can unsubscribe at any time with one click if you feel that you could live without this fortnightly nuisance.

OR, if you like it, share the newsletter — email, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Reddit — with your friends and relatives. It will be a terrific gift.
