So you have been working on your important goal or dream for some time. However, somehow success is not in sight yet. You didn’t anticipate the kind of challenges that would come along. It appears to be taking a long time. Beginning to lose faith and hope, you feel as if you are losing steam. And now, you are tempted to give up.…Continue
In mood for some poetry, this is for all those who have been down but never out :)
Lahu ponchhta hun zakhmon se,
Par raaste ke kaaton se vichlit nahi
Haan hai sannaton ka bhay mujhko,
Par zindagi auron par aashrit nahi
Hui shaam magar dur hai manzil,
Thaka hai man, par vyathit nahi
Hun gham se bojhil maana,
Par paraajay se paraajit nahi
"You can observe a lot just by watching."
- Yogi Berra
Lately, I have been trying to develop a habit of observing myself and my reactions to the circumstances I have been facing. And I have been surprised by the power of this deceptively simple act. It has been a very interesting process of self discovery, to say the least.

“Learn from failures.”
How many times have you head this statement? I, myself, have bragged about it a lot. A lot. But if we closely look at the lesson, we got to know “what not to do”. Right? Right. Who will tell us what to do?
There are a million things that one shouldn’t do. A million, and that too is my very optimistic estimate. Will you fail one million…Continue

OUR PREPAREDNESS IS NOT ONLY DEPENDENT ON OUR PERSONAL ABILITY BUT ALSO OUR ENVIRONMENT
We have often heard that the success of an individual is based on two primary factors; opportunity and preparedness. Though this is true, we forget some great aspects of being prepared; our Personal Preparedness and our Circumstantial Preparedness. In order to understand this philosophy better it's important to understand our Circle of Concern and our Circle of…
In October, 2013 (previous month), I started a new innings in my career, started my own company with a physical office in my place Visakhapatnam. I had given the office space owner the rent 1 month before starting the office so that I can buy furniture and conduct interviews. While doing this amazing job in my career, these are the few funny things that I encountered.
1. Animation? what is it? (Animation? kya hey?)

Everyone knows that startups are sexy. You make the rules, you get the money, glory and fame, press coverage, you name it. And while you have to work hard for this to happen — well, even harder than you ever thought you would — all is good in the end.
Until it’s not.
The challenge lies not in creating a new company, or a new product. It’s actually pretty easy. The challenge is not in raising money — it’s a fairly straightforward process, even if it is, at…

The fastest selling freebies on this planet are opinions. The pleasure of forming an opinion or passing a judgment on anything and everything is as adrenalin pumping as a racing rumour. That’s what makes us social animals and the social media is just a validation of this age old creed. An ad/article/blog/sound/visual/video etc. attracts vocal and vocabulary voices even from the 3 wise monkeys. How we all love to run into it!!
In a corporate cubicle context, imagine its impact on…Continue

Successful people ask better questions, and as a result, they get better answers. ~ Tony Robbins…
In early February this year, I attended a concert of some of the finest maestros from across the continents, who have excelled in their own genres - Ustad Zakir Hussain, Bela Fleck, and Edgar Meyer. They were briefly joined by Rakesh Chaurasia who is making a mark for himself with the flute, in the footsteps of his renowned uncle Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia.
There was a perfect blend in the fusion music they created, and the concert was aptly called Confluence. It was spellbinding,…Continue

Scene 1: I enter the venue. Its Jam packed. Cramped parking, cramped Tent, cramped house, cramped sofa, 5 poor children fighting to sit on a 3 seater sofa, so much of chaos and look at me. Instead of cribbing that I generally would have been doing, I see myself smiling. I don’t know what’s wrong with me.…Continue
