Most of my major life changing decisions were taken after a trek in the mountains. The last few times that I have been there in the mountain I have been stuck with how similar trekking is with a startup journey.
For a trekker or a lover of the hills, the…Continue
Now, I had to share this to get it out of my system.
Firstly, I want you to know that I am a firm believer in building a team that can deliver. It's sort of an obsession for me. I take efforts to ensure that the HR cycle in my organisation runs smoothly. I make sure that every employee gets opportunity to perform. They have the resources and freedom. I believe in employee empowerment.…
My cook is Nepali. With me for 8 years. I feel he is as much my family like my wife or children. He's been in India with his family for 8 years. His children study in the christian school at Kemps corner. Even with the salary/assistance I could provide, it was getting tough for him to manage. He left mumbai 3 months back to settle his wife and kids in Nepal,With his inlaws and 3 days into his stay, the earthequakes took place. ALL houses were levelled. It took me 3-4 days to get in touch. He…Continue
Have you ever felt that your mind has been nuked from the shrill sounds that all the honking monsters produce on the roads? I bet you are not alone in having this feeling.
I recently witnessed 3 such:
Being with myself Condolim Beach
A couple of weeks ago, I was in Goa for work. When my work was over, I took my rented Activa to check out Goa’s dazzling beach life. Here, my 11 km ride begins. I had stopped couple of times to capture the exuberant life of Goa.
It took me 30-35…Continue

My wife saw a dragon fly continuously banging its head against the transparent glass of a sliding window in my room. Perhaps, the dragon fly wanted to go out in the garden, badly. My wife opened the window so that it could escape. To our surprise it did not move ahead. Something it was trying so badly for was there to be explored but it refused to move.
I saw this, and I ‘wondered’.
Often, we also keep knocking the door of some opportunity that we want to realize, but…

I was just a sperm about to die until I found your womb and life came to me;
I would have died taking birth but you soaked all the pain and gifted me my first breath;
I was almost a parasite for the first few months sucking you biting you and clinging on you all the time but you made it look like the…
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
