The ultimate question - 'What do you want to become'

'What do you want to become', 'Where do you see yourself five years down the line'; 'Why do you want this job'; 'Why would you like to become an entrepreneur'; 'Why did you chose this field; - These are variations of the same question, and somehow the answer to this determines the starting point for everyone. 

We are human beings, we make mistakes; some are able to correct them sooner, and some take their own sweet time. For instance, when we were small we had a limited exposure to…

Question your Vote!

When you have an idea you proud of, its more satisfying when you have a team that delivers it.

Feels good to create a property of pride that's important to every Indian.

Your values are a reflection of the country you live, represent and build for tomorrow. Respect your vote as much as you want the country to respect you.

Start by questioning the vote you cast.

Forefingerfirst.com is a compilation of manifesto issues of all…

On 6th of April’14, The Undertaker's [Undefeated] Streak of 21-0 came to an end at WWE’s yearly event  - WrestleMania 30 (it’s been going on for the past 30 years), now resting(in peace) at 21-1.

Election 2014 - What's in a name?

What's in a name?

We all have heard this umpteenth number of times? Many times we have even wondered whether this really is true or not and whether this holds in all situations.

Depends.... that may be our conclusion in most cases. But today with the election fever on a high all around our country, I felt like pondering over this phrase all over again.

We all, as responsible citizens of India, should vote and we will do so.

But whom will we vote for?

Will…

My Rodinhooding with Delhi Metro (DMRC) - A good case of caring for customer

Among all Govt/semi Govt organizations I know, DMRC is among the most professionally managed ones. Below two incidents explains why I feel so. Its perhaps a lesson for many start-ups.

1st Incident : Sikandarpur Metro Station, Gurgaon

On my way to caching a metro for Delhi, I saw a strange thing, which is not actually strange if put in Indian context, see below image.…

You shake your head, I see a Nod!

That's what happens, whenever I see anyone shaking their head as a blatant non approval of me, my bizarre ideas and the absolute confidence with which I add 2+2 as 5!

But being a rebel is supposed to be cool, isn't it? The thought of proving everyone wrong and emerging a super hero at the end of all the struggle keeps all of us moving, right? I guess my problem is bigger - I never forget. I do not forget the good, the bad and the evil and surprisingly enough, I call my critics…

Swearing off the smartphone

A monologue in the deep, short-tempered crevices of my mind.

"The alarm didn't ring, of course. Thank Goodness I still woke up in time to rush to work. Must be my efficient body clock. There's 1 point for me and 0 for my smartphone." Getting ready, leaving home. Quickly jotting down my tasks for today and the grocery list on a piece of paper. "Well, technology, perhaps I can do without you."

Rushing to work, and here's a traffic jam. Can't look for alternate routes, and even if…

Put up or shut up!!

Last night, 4 of us were leaving a friend’s party in an elevator which stops at a lower floor. A couple were trying to enter the elevator. We politely smile and suggest that they take the next one. The lady stubbornly insists on entering the crowded space. Chivalry takes over common sense and we oblige. On reaching the ground floor, the elevator sinks a foot lower than the exit. Stuck in the elevator. The lady starts cursing the fact that the elevator was overloaded. We look at each other…

ExperienceThat Enthrals

Standing in the cash counter of any retail outlet can be one of the most irritating experiences, for many of us, more so if you are in a long queue. It is not only stressful for the customer but far more challenging and stressful for the customer care executive to handle multiple and sometimes absurd queries from the unruly people in queue. But is it possible that you reach the cash counter after a long queue and feel energized and refreshed. A couple of days back I actually felt delighted…

Hi,

From just Thinker to Thinker + Doer

I have been a member of community since Jan'12 now but you guys don't know me yet. The reason is there in the title.

I was a thinker. Just Thinker.

Been THINKING of writing a post ever since I joined but could not. Sometime time has been a factor and sometimes it did not make any sense and sometimes when the post was almost complete, I did not find it perfect and it was scratched.

Been THINKING of writing a…

Hello Mr. Politician!

Mr. Gandhi

After this week’s interview would you prefer to ignore the truth or be ignored?

Or you hope that the audience simply switched off their televisions being bored?



Mr. Kejriwal

Methinks thou protests too much

You really lack a leader’s touch 



Mr. Thakeray,

Would you prefer to be loved or be feared?

Or should…

When Dynasties fall..

Ever wonder when a royal dynasty begins to fall?

Does this happen when the enemy breaches the kingdom wall,

Or is it apparent when all progress in the kingdom begins to crawl,

Or when the subjects suffer and yet the royalty defiantly stand tall.



Is the end near when the queen does loudly snore,

When all hopes and dreams of her subjects are dashed to the floor,

And the…

Old Age -- A great time to move to villages and GIVE BACK!

This blog post comes out of a conversation at Delhi's Nehru Park with my brother-in-law earlier today. Talking about health & the role of organic food, our conversation moved onto old age and i shared (once again) with him my ideas about the need for people in their 60's moving to villages and giving back to society. I've written…

Getting out of my comfort zone

I've realised, half our lives we live in fear. Various forms of fear:

- The fear of communicating: "What will happen if I tell him the truth?", "What if she rejects me?" ...

- The fear of doing things, esp when for the first time: "I can't do that, I've never done it before"

- The fear of taking risks: "I can't quit my job and start a venture, its way too risky"

- The fear of losing (things): "What if I lose everything that I have?"

- Many more...

Have you…
