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
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
Though I belong from that generation of engineering students who suddenly felt all hippie listening to Avril yelling out of cheap non Dolby speakers of brand new laptops, this title has no relation to her superhit number. I also belong…Continue
Geeks there is nothing for you! Yes, I know that the title of my blog post is very catchy and sounds little techy but I apologize because my motive is not to troll you guys :) if in any case you can stay for a little long you will find that more or less the title is not inappropriate. My motive is little different that you’ll get to know by the end of this blog post.
It was September 2012; autumn was knocking at the door and it was time to shed the old leaves and wait for the fresh…Continue
Well, its 2.10 on the clock and I have turned 25 a couple of hours back. AS I look back at the two and a half decades gone by, I cannot help but smile with satisfaction at a lot many things. The lessons learnt, the mistakes made, the friendships, the arguments, the failures, the successes… all of it seems overwhelming when you contemplate. As such, I decided to pen down the 25 big lessons of life as an Indian student, teenager, employee,…Continue
I had an idea, a great idea. I stayed awake at night tweaking it in my mind. I spent my free time at work daydreaming about other uses and markets. I had a perfect name, memorable and fun to say. I could see people using it. I was ready, but now what? I pored over blog posts and articles, videos and podcasts, and these left me very informed about the mechanics of starting up. This was information that I needed. But there was so much to do, so far to go, what if this didn’t work? I had a good…Continue

Just heard of Rodinhood and signed up!
I have been a first generation entrepreneur, fresh out of college at 21. It was a super 7yr roller coaster ride - many lows & a few great highs. Recognition from the likes of Business Week & abject failures.
Finally, in June 2011, I gave up and took up a job. Started keeping a blog to analyze my reasons for failure and create a…

About 9 years ago, I was engaged with a online gambling startup in the US.
They built 100% compliant, white-labelled casino sites and had many of the popular casinos of the time as their customers. Their content focus was on typical Jackpots and Bingo type of games, which…Continue
"How do you compete in a space that is so crowded that you don't get heard even if you shout out loud?" This was the question that haunted us when we ventured into the event portal space.
We started AllEvents.in as a tiny event aggregation portal with a very simple idea: "A space where everyone can know what is happening around."
There were many other sites with the same objective and it was difficult to stand…Continue
The internet made me an entrepreneur, it truly did. Never before did i have the courage to even think that a boy like me who comes from a middle class family could work out a way to start off on his own. Thanks to social media(specially twitter), many meetups and rodinhoods , i started getting the feeling that the entire world is in fact moving towards becoming one. I must specially mention Alok and this platform which has allowed people from all over to come share, get inspired and get…Continue
