On an average, a city dweller has a commute of 100 minutes in India. I use this to listen to Podcasts to make myself more productive.
Like Robin Sharma says, 60 minutes a day in traffic, if spent wisely is equivalent to going to a university to learn a new skill. This is the modern day “Traffic University”.
