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
When I completed my engineering, I was sure of one thing, "Ki yaar jyada time job to nahi karni". Money was not on my priority list since childhood so never thought like a baniya inspite of being from a typical baniya…Continue
Can we learn from a movie ? Yes, but what is learned is important. My taste of movies has always intrigued and often angered my friends. I am not the only man in this world who refuses to fantasize commercial cinema in spite of all those (not so) charming celebrities and their loyal fans who…Continue
Education in India has a great value especially in middle class and higher class. The struggle of parents for providing a quality education to child starts with the birth of child and so does the struggle of a child to fulfill the expectations of its parents. But even after so much of efforts, our…
Come sit; let me tell you a story divine,
It doesn’t start with a, “Once Upon A Time...”
A story of what’s, and how’s and why’s,
Of pains to paint the blue, blue skies.
Life is such, it never stops,
Flows away, drop by drops.
Make plans, we always do,
Wishing red, life chooses blue.
Sometimes you wonder, what’s all the chase?
Why run at all, what’s in the race?
Why this, and not that,…

'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…Continue
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.

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?

And leave us nothing but grief and pain,

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…Continue
