He had walked a long way in the burning heat,
but he kept walking along.
Suddenly he saw a cave and a sage,
the sage meditating alone.
To escape the heat he sat in the cave,
To pass the time he started to meditate.
Six hours passed by,
feeling the cold air he opened his eyes.
To his surprise he saw 20 more people besides,
all meditating with closed eyes.
In span of less than a day,
He witnessed a miracle one may say.
What happened he wondered…

Most of us who are out of college and want to start up are now clear that it takes not only guts, passion or a clear plan about what we intend to do, but a solid fight, something like a war. What is true and will always be is in India we really don't have a Zuckerberg or some out of the blue entrepreneur like one because sadly most of our parents are influenced by "pathetic" company and the day we are born, we are set a target (engineer or doctor) so we slog, try and do what we can and…Continue

A discussion with the folks at Microsoft got me explaining our technology choice on the cloud.
It led to an idea on how Microsoft should be positioning their cloud offering, keeping the lifecycle of a startup product company in mind :-
1) Most companies start on the cloud, with just an idea
Face it : when starting out, all you would want to build is your product and test that it works for your consumers. The cloud gives you the perfect platform…
Moving to a new office is often not as written about as moving to a new home is. The various insufferable clichés of having “lived my childhood there”, or a popular variation “left my childhood behind in those 4 walls” , “grew up there”, “best memories” etc etc.
However, all of those are in fact true. Even for Americans.
An office though is a different ball game. Since most people shift…Continue

I am one of those kids who are a very big fan of Zuckerberg. I have kept a special place for him by putting his poster on my wall. I was accessing #facebookipo on tweetdeck from last 3 days to see all the latest happenings on IPO.
I have seen lot of hate tweets/articles on $104B valuation and YES, they all have a valid point. Facebook has $3.7B revenue and $1B profits last year. They are valued at more than 100x…Continue
I recently pre-ordered the Special Edition of Max Payne 3 on Flipkart. While this was more than twice the cost of the 'normal' edition, it had some amazing extras. I paid the amount in full, using my Credit Card.
I had been looking forward to the delivery of this game for over a month. A day or so ago, I received an email telling me that the vendor was unable to get stock of the special edition. It may come to India eventually, but the normal edition was the only option for…
So we`re in slowdown territory now. Growth has slipped to 6.9% and that figure includes some “creative accounting” by our government too. If India Inc is to be believed, then the government is’nt moving forward with any work.…Continue
Suppose you decided to give in to your long time dream of setting up a restaurant, would you spend 10 crore rupees to do it and expect to make your money back in 39 years profiting at the rate of only 25 lakh, 64 thousand every year.
A rate of return on 2.5% on your investment.
Well, if you invest in the current IPO of Speciality Restaurants, you`d be doing just that. At a mind bogglingly unrealistic valuation of 800 crores, Speciality Restaurants is the con of the year on a…Continue

I’m turning 22 on 26th June and Zuckerberg turned 28 today. Why my next 6 years are so challenging and what motivates me to work days and nights.
Here are few things about zuckerberg that makes me feel proud (as well as jealous ).
1) He runs a company that is about to go for IPO with a valuation of 100 billion dollars – Just Imagine !!
2) He has been on the cover page of Time Magazine – How did you feel when you were…Continue

I was fuming after one of the worst customer service experiences one can ever begin to imagine possible with a private DTH operator and was wondering about the best medium to share my experience with, when I remembered a friend’s pearl of wisdom – “if you want to heard, write on Rodinhood”. I have never posted on Rodinhood before but I hope I am not out of place to be posting this here.
When I relocated to Bombay in 2011, I brought with me my existing Sun Direct connection from…Continue
