  1. Good to hear you’re doing well, Om. Thanks for sharing your encouragement to have others live more healthy lives. I lost my dad — who shared the vices you mention — very suddenly a few years ago. We all need to take better care of ourselves!

  2. Omie – welcome back!! DT, RR and I are glad to see this post 🙂 And next time you are sitting here next to me, I’m glad I won’t have to buzz you up after a smoke!

  3. Looks like you will have to drink more Red wine if you need a new vice that has cardiologists blessings .

    Good to see ya back mate .

  4. Om,

    Take it slow – life is a marathon, not a sprint. 2008 is your year to fix your health – your blog will do just fine. It will help you learn to delegate and manage just that much better!

  5. Om, thanks for sharing some news and advice with us all. We miss you. Get better and take real good care of yourself.

  6. Om,

    So happy to see you back and looking great! Thanks for sharing your new perspective and advice — words to live by!


  7. Thanks guys. I think the big realization as Don Jones so nicely put it – “life is a marathon, not a sprint.”

    It is going to be the guiding principal going forward. I am working on putting together a more coherent and manageable and healthier life-schedule in place for the future, taking the time to smell the roses.

  8. Hi Om!!
    I’m very happy to see you back again. You need to be completly recovery in order to visit my country in late march: URUGUAY!!
    We are very excited waiting for your visit and we want to share ideas with you

    See you soon,

    Manuel Cicarello.

  9. Not that it should be the goal here (your health goes first) – but your findings would make great content for FoundRead. This is like a wake up call for us all.

  10. Welcome back Om. Great to have you back. No offense to the rest of your team – they’ve done a great job in your absence, but it hasn’t been the same without you.
    Take it easy. We certainly hope you continue to make progress with your health.
    Cheers Om!

  11. OM!

    Just think, many people live a long time after their first heart attack, if they make lifestyle changes as you have mentioned that you are doing.

    Best Wishes for your Health!


  12. Good to see you back Om. Btw what happened to u as i’m out of the loop. I hope its not too personal to ask. It sounds u are referring to heart related issue. You have to be careful mate.

  13. Watch the portion size in saturated fat laden Indian food. Its the number one cause for heart problems. Sure Indian food is the tastiest among ethnic food but it is a silent killer.

    The number of by-pass surgeries performed by Indian doctors in India is staggering. Heart disease is a epidemic in India.

    Eat well, rest well, exercise. Delegate and learn to say NO to non-essentials. Life will be peaceful and balanced.

    Make this the top priority in 2008.

  14. Hi Om:

    What words of advice or warning would you have listened to BEFORE your heart attack? If you were to choose words of advice or warning that you’d have heeded yourself, re “unhealthy eating habits, lack of exercise and vices such as smoking” what would they have been?

    If there are such words, maybe we can put them out there so it doesn’t take a big wake up call to shock someone into action along these lines…

  15. Om-
    You look fantastic in this picture. Like a young man with a new lease on life.

    Om Bhur bhuvah svah
    Tat savitur varenyam
    Bhargo Devasya dheemahi
    Dheeyo yonah prachodayaat
