"That is extremely debatable. Is Dalai Lama/Bill Clinton/Adolf Hitler/Mahatma Gandhi less/more impactful than Bill Gates. Question is, why did the richest give up making money to make an impact in the world. Would Bill Gates have continued to be the…"

Money is a good servant but a bad master. That's been my belief and that's how I have led my life. I am a  minimalist & keep my 'luxuries' to a minimum. I had a car, I don't have one now. I had a TV, I don't have one now. I don't own a dvd player or a bose stereo system or an Ipad or an imac/macbbook. I sleep on a mattress on the floor and everyday, for the past 4 years,I have eaten the same protein shake(indian) for breakfast. Yes, I do own a kindle because I read everyday, I own some nice…See More

Running Musings: Let Procratistination guide you to Action

I have never been much of a procrastinator. However, in the past few months, I had been procrastinating on a couple of issues. One was regarding the purchase of a significantly expensive machine. Though our estimates of savings + revenues had us paying off the machine in 12 months worst case & 6 months best case, the huge temporary dent to my cash reserves + being one of the first in the world to use this untested technology had me procrastinate for almost 3 months. …See More

Running musings: Startups: cheapest money available

Was just running through the calculations of how much interest various kinds of funding available to entrepreneurs cost: 1. Venture funding:  A 10X exit atleast. So basically you are paying a compound interest of 60% annually for that growth. 2. Angel Funding:  More lenient, but still requires a reasonably profitable exit. So would cost you conservatively 30% annual compound interest. 3. Bank Funding:  Typically 16 -18% compound interest. 4. Friends:  They deserve a return slightly better than…See More

Running musings: Do we stand a chance

A discussion with a  newly turned entrepreneur friend regarding the opportunities in India got me thinking. She was convinced that it was impossible to compete with the Reliance’s & TATA’s in a mass market and it was best to focus on niche markets which had plenty of opportunities. Though I do agree with her, I don’t believe the story ends there. I believe that going for a niche market is a great innovative strategy to enter a market. From there you can innovate to capture a larger market.…See More

Saraswathi Pulluru commented on Amit Arvind's blog post Persistent or Stubborn: Running Musings
"Loved the article, especially the last paragraph. What you said is absolutely true - if you win, you are persistent. If you lose, you are stubborn. But, I think neither can be unlearned :) "

The 10 lessons I learnt from my Asian Games Campaign

1. Vision: I started my 2006 Asian games campaign as far back as 2002. The vision of a medal in 2006 is what drove me to train from 2002 till 2006. When I started, it was not clear which event I would be participating or the path to get that medal.

The original vision for iLogo was to organize the fragmented & disorganized business of custom T-Shirts globally. This has kept us going through all challenges.

 2. Perseverance &…
