I have plenty of time to watch Indian Premier League, Pro Kabaddi, Indian Football League in front of TV.
I have a good amount of time to spend with friends & colleagues at restaurants, coffee shops, etc.
I have a lot of time for googling, Facebook, checking emails, playing games, etc. every day.
I have plenty of time to browse various shopping websites to buy shoes, dresses, etc.
I spend a lot of time to read reviews on newly launched mobiles, electronics, cars and other gadgets on various websites. That too daily.
Even after doing all these things, I still have time to chat with friends on WhatsApp!
