How Children Teach Us About Creativity

I was sitting on the stairs and waiting for my friend to complete his test as soon as possible. Meanwhile, I was watching a few children who were playing in the rain. If their mothers would've seen this, then it would've created trouble for them. I took the opportunity to observe those children and how they exhibited creativity and my observation was something like this...…

A note to myself and fellow entrepreneurs

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…

Master and Slaves - The Most Common Corporate Architecture!!

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.

Three Steps To Awaken The Entrepreneurial Voice Within

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…

The First Crore

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…

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…

First year anniversary of and a story of struggle and success!

"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 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…
