Night shifts

Working in night shifts take a toll on your body, your entire metabolism goes for a toss. The cons of working in night shifts surely win the race against the pros.

After working in night shifts for a week, I was tired, sleepy and dreamy.

Since I worked continuously for a week, my company was considerate enough to give me 4 days off.

The tiff between multiplex owners and bollywood produces, kept us at home and did some favor to our wallets. I thought of renting few DVD’s from bigflix, an excellent concept, certainly during these times, but then I thought, why movies, why not some good books, why not rent some books.

Blame it on my Google skills, but fortunately (???) I could not find a single website which will rent me books I want, at affordable price, and will deliver them free at home.

Someone has rightly said great ideas either occur in toilet or in between 2 AM and 4 AM. I decided to start a rental book service of my own.

I discussed it with my family and surprisingly enough for me, they agreed to it happily. I did some research, made some plans, did a lot of analyis, and finally invested some money to start a new book rental service called Bapat’s Rent Me A Book.

It would not only earn me some money, but will also help readers, who due to some reason, did not have enough time to go to libraries, book stores to get a book they want to read.

We @ Bapat’s Rent Me A Book provide you with a simple, free delivery, free pick-up rental book services.
Just call us, or send us a sms @ 9595081055 or email us @ and we promise you a guaranteed book delivery within 24 hours.

Currently we are operating out of Pune city, but expansion plans to some other cities do exist.

Note: I had not written a single post since last six months due to some personal and professional issues, and it was hurting me. The idea of rental book service, helped me overcome the writer’s block I was facing, and hopefully now I will be blogging regularly.


The service is owned by my wife, and I am involved only in providing her some morale support.

    “Currently we are operating out of Pune city, ..”

    you prolly meant.. you are NOT operating out of pune city??

    All the best 🙂

    Operating out of Pune means -> Operating from Pune? ain’t it?

    for e.g, where does Mr. Y operates from? He operates out of our NY office.

    I might be wrong too.. need to google on it. Thanks Sakhi.

  5. I have a doubt. Does your current employer’s policies allow you to start or be part of a business? I am not sure about it but my offer letter said so clearly. You may want to check the policies first. If you haven’t done so already! 😉

    Your doubt is genuine and no my employer’s policy does not permit me to start a business of my own. I have added a note at the bottom of the post. The service is entirely owned by wife, the idea was mine, implementation and execution hers. I am just to provide some morale support.

    1. Actually I should have warned you before. But I assumed you must have considered the possibility. But I am glad I reminded you today. Better late than never. Anyway, I checked with some of my friends, and they think that you are also not supposed to advertise the business where the employer can see it. 😀 or something like that. May be they just mean you to be careful and not to something like that intro-email you sent us.
