Rocket Sales Corporation and what it had to teach us all !! Most important things learnt the simplest way.

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…

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…

Look Who’s Running Now!

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,…

One liners about voting!

The ultimate question - 'What do you want to become'

'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…

Start by questioning the vote you cast. is a compilation of manifesto issues of all…

Election 2014 - What's in a name?

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?

All Good Things [Must] Come to an End

On 6th of April’14, The Undertaker's [Undefeated] Streak of 21-0 came to an end at WWE’s yearly event  - WrestleMania 30 (it’s been going on for the past 30 years), now resting(in peace) at 21-1.

Till now, he had won 21 times and lost none of his fights in this yearly event

The reaction of the fans was a complete and utter silence followed by sheer dis-belief that they have witnessed the…

My Rodinhooding with Delhi Metro (DMRC) - A good case of caring for customer

Among all Govt/semi Govt organizations I know, DMRC is among the most professionally managed ones. Below two incidents explains why I feel so. Its perhaps a lesson for many start-ups.

1st Incident : Sikandarpur Metro Station, Gurgaon

On my way to caching a metro for Delhi, I saw a strange thing, which is not actually strange if put in Indian context, see below image.…

You shake your head, I see a Nod!

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…

Swearing off the smartphone

A monologue in the deep, short-tempered crevices of my mind.

"The alarm didn't ring, of course. Thank Goodness I still woke up in time to rush to work. Must be my efficient body clock. There's 1 point for me and 0 for my smartphone." Getting ready, leaving home. Quickly jotting down my tasks for today and the grocery list on a piece of paper. "Well, technology, perhaps I can do without you."

Rushing to work, and here's a traffic jam. Can't look for alternate routes, and even if…

Put up or shut up!!

Last night, 4 of us were leaving a friend’s party in an elevator which stops at a lower floor. A couple were trying to enter the elevator. We politely smile and suggest that they take the next one. The lady stubbornly insists on entering the crowded space. Chivalry takes over common sense and we oblige. On reaching the ground floor, the elevator sinks a foot lower than the exit. Stuck in the elevator. The lady starts cursing the fact that the elevator was overloaded. We look at each other…

ExperienceThat Enthrals

Standing in the cash counter of any retail outlet can be one of the most irritating experiences, for many of us, more so if you are in a long queue. It is not only stressful for the customer but far more challenging and stressful for the customer care executive to handle multiple and sometimes absurd queries from the unruly people in queue. But is it possible that you reach the cash counter after a long queue and feel energized and refreshed. A couple of days back I actually felt delighted…

From just Thinker to Thinker + Doer

I have been a member of community since Jan'12 now but you guys don't know me yet. The reason is there in the title.

I was a thinker. Just Thinker.

Been THINKING of writing a post ever since I joined but could not. Sometime time has been a factor and sometimes it did not make any sense and sometimes when the post was almost complete, I did not find it perfect and it was scratched.
