Read some beautiful lines recently by Scottish poet Robert Burns...
"The best laid schemes of Mice and Men
oft go awry,
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

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…Continue
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…Continue

This is my first Article, Tell me what you feel about this.
Entrepreneurship is like entering a Dark Tunnel where there are hardly any directions or lights. There are Multiple Exits, but the one which you long for is only One (Desired Exit). All exits lead to different goals being accomplished.…Continue
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.
Been THINKING of writing a…
After this week’s interview would you prefer to ignore the truth or be ignored?
Or you hope that the audience simply switched off their televisions being bored?
Methinks thou protests too much
You really lack a leader’s touch
Would you prefer to be loved or be feared?

Ever wonder when a royal dynasty begins to fall?
Does this happen when the enemy breaches the kingdom wall,
Or is it apparent when all progress in the kingdom begins to crawl,
Or when the subjects suffer and yet the royalty defiantly stand tall.
Is the end near when the queen does loudly snore,
When all hopes and dreams of her subjects are dashed to the floor,
I have been running the Mumbai Marathon for the last 6 years (1 Full, 4 Half and 1 Dream Run) and just ran the half marathon yesterday. I have been an entrepreneur for the last 4 years and have my own consultancy for Films – Magus Entertainment (…Continue
This blog post comes out of a conversation at Delhi's Nehru Park with my brother-in-law earlier today. Talking about health & the role of organic food, our conversation moved onto old age and i shared (once again) with him my ideas about the need for people in their 60's moving to villages and giving back to society. I've written…Continue

I've realised, half our lives we live in fear. Various forms of fear:
- The fear of communicating: "What will happen if I tell him the truth?", "What if she rejects me?" ...
- The fear of doing things, esp when for the first time: "I can't do that, I've never done it before"
- The fear of taking risks: "I can't quit my job and start a venture, its way too risky"
- The fear of losing (things): "What if I lose everything that I have?"
- Many more...

So you have been working on your important goal or dream for some time. However, somehow success is not in sight yet. You didn’t anticipate the kind of challenges that would come along. It appears to be taking a long time. Beginning to lose faith and hope, you feel as if you are losing steam. And now, you are tempted to give up.…Continue
In mood for some poetry, this is for all those who have been down but never out :)
Lahu ponchhta hun zakhmon se,
Par raaste ke kaaton se vichlit nahi
Haan hai sannaton ka bhay mujhko,
Par zindagi auron par aashrit nahi
Hui shaam magar dur hai manzil,
Thaka hai man, par vyathit nahi
Hun gham se bojhil maana,
Par paraajay se paraajit nahi
"You can observe a lot just by watching."
- Yogi Berra
Lately, I have been trying to develop a habit of observing myself and my reactions to the circumstances I have been facing. And I have been surprised by the power of this deceptively simple act. It has been a very interesting process of self discovery, to say the least.
