This morning I ran a 10k for the first time in my life. I’m more of a cyclist and once said “running isn’t my thing.”…Continue
I lived in US for many years and had a chance to watch the show of David Copperfield (one of the world’s top magician) and recently two performances of Ugesh Sarkar (one of India’s top magician). We know that what we see in the magician’s performance is an illusion and not reality but it looks real to us. For few moments we cannot believe what we see and what we believe is not seen. I was thinking if we can flip this magician’s illusion to our competence and…Continue

Here is one of interesting experience I had during summer of 2014, this came to my mind while reading Vinit’s post “I got better customer service from my client than I gave them”. If one pays close attention to regular people who keep on doing very simple and menial work/job, they have lot to teach us and being humble is surely one of them. Below is…

Sometime back I had a chance to spend few hours with an elderly gentleman and his wife. He is more than 70, still tall and handsome with an extremely winsome smile and an unending repertoire of jokes that he could crack at opportune moments. His wife who is above 60 is full of charm that made it abundantly…Continue

A ceramics teacher announced on opening day that he was dividing the class into two groups. All those on the left side of the studio would be graded solely on the quantity of work they produced, all those on the right side solely on its quality.
His procedure was simple: on the final day of class he would bring in his bathroom scales and weigh the work of the “quantity” groups: fifty pounds of pots rated an A, forty pounds a B, and so on. Those being…

Many a times it feels like taking a plunge to do new things – far from the ordinary. I wish the day I’ll live my dream is not far. I personally feel that everyone must explore avenues that excites life with a new perspective to rise above mediocrity.
I looked around and found even my closest pals busy amidst hush hush monotonous lifestyles. They too crave to explore the unknown but there are inhibitions and fear of the unknown. And the most…

'Life is hard and then you die'. I heard this line on a Shark Tank episode. One of the billionaire sharks said this - ironically. This led me to really introspect on the importance of each moment that we have which we literally burn away. To decide what priorities you have in life, what sort of a person you are.
At every stage in my life, I come at crossroads and ask my self - what my next step should be. Should it be the 'right' one. The right one is where I choose a safe path, a…Continue
Irrespective of their interests, the whole world was watching The Scottish referendum of last week. Undoubtedly a very special event to watch in our lifetime, if a country wish to break their union accord of 307 years, or in other words, if they really feel they are capable of captaining their own ship.…Continue

Investor is just another Marwari who needs to be wooed to fund you. Most of the investors invest when they are 100% sure of the product.…Continue
I have a 20 month old son and I thought I had to teach him the rules of life……….till I realized I had it all wrong.
I joined my family business which was small in scale,
I dreamt of turning it big someday, but my ideas were stale.
I kept grinding myself in the hope of turning things around,
They said ‘opportunity’ will for once ring a bell,
But I never heard a sound.
I read a lot about self made men and tried to copy their style,
But in copying them I forgot to change the one thing that I had been doing wrong all this while.
Working hard was one small step…Continue
Mujhe yaad Hai wo Bachpan Ke Yadein,
Jab School ke Chuttiyo me aksar hoti the bus aapki he batein.
Aapne hame Hasna Sikhlaya, Aaapne Hame Cartoon ka matlab samjhaya,
Bachpan beet gaya Chacha Chaudhary, Billu,Pinku, Raman aur Shrimatji se
Jawani tak aapne kya khoob sikhaya,Gudgudaya, Gyan batlaya.
Raddi ke dukano pe jab hum aapke Comics dhoodte the,
Raddiwale ko 2roopye ke jagah 5 roopye dete the
Wo baat hame khoob achi lagti the, sabse yahi kehte
Wah! Wah! Aaj…
A lot has already been said about gender justice. And sexual harassment is one unethical issue which most of us face in out day to day lives. Not just limited to touch, lewd remarks, those greedy eyes, quirky smiles and raunchy gestures looked like a nightmare, now have become a part of life. But does that goes untouched psychologically? My answer to that thought, even now, goes …… A BIG NO!!!…Continue
Recently during one of the early morning flights from Bangalore, I picked up a book at airport on explanation of change through models, called "The Change Book" by Mikael Krogerus and Roman Tschappeler. As I sat in the lounge, nonchalantly flipping through first couple of introduction pages, I was oblivious to…Continue
