A recent survey tells us that Agatha Christie read 200 books a year. Mark Zuckerberg reads one every fortnight and an average speed reader, read up to six books a day. In this digitally connected world, we have found many alternatives to the modest pen and paper, that is slowly becoming obsolete. Touch screens have replaced our books and styluses have become the new pen. Reading has become a big task to do and sadly has been reduced to the not so important category of our daily chores list. So, we are dedicating this edition to revive the art of reading with tips on how you can carve out chunks of time in your daily schedule for reading.

The White Mtn. & Bluegrass Benefit festival is back and this time it is with a noble cause. While this is the 5th year for the event, this time we thought of attaching it to a great social cause. All proceeds from the event will go to towards the benefit of bereaved armed forces families and kin! On March 11th, from midday until midnight, we’ll have some of the best bands from across the region performing across this 3-day festival.
We have ensured that you experience a friendly and festive ambience and have kept free entry to attract maximum foot falls. We thus, encourage you to donate generously. Spread the word so that we can repay the families of those who sacrificed their lives for the country. We look forward to see you at the event.
