Failure is always an orphan...

Since my childhood I have been listening and reading one quote that is

"Failure is the key to success."

Unfortunately, entrepreneurs are afraid to accept it because they don’t accept their failures and this how failure becomes alone, nameless and ORPHAN. Failures break those people emotionally but they pretend to be stronger. And that pretense doesn’t last…

How does it feel?


 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…

In October, 2013 (previous month), I started a new innings in my career, started my own company with a physical office in my place Visakhapatnam.

1. Animation? what is it? (Animation? kya hey?)

Startup lessons from success (not failure) :-)

Everyone seems to think that one only learns a lesson when they fail. Though that is mostly true, I think lessons can be learnt from successes too!

In 2009, I was "forced" (why forced? I will come to that some other time...).. forced to start a tech product company. I had very little time to launch the product so I had to make some hard decision very very quickly.

I remember sitting in one of our brain storming sessions on the features the…

Book a table and while you're at it... Experience your city...

We work hard during the week, looking forward to the weekends to rejuvenate us. But with city life being the way it is today and the needs of the insatiable human spirits makes us easily bored with options we have around us.

A search for some such rekindling source lead me on a journey through the vastness of the worlds best library of information, in short a search on google... brought me to a unique page called Was in in for a surprise. Fun with Food was what I had…

What Microsoft could learn from how start-ups work

A discussion with the folks at Microsoft got me explaining our technology choice on the cloud.  

It led to an idea on how Microsoft should be positioning their cloud offering, keeping the lifecycle of a startup product company in mind :-

1) Most companies start on the cloud, with just an idea

Face it : when starting out, all you would want to build is your product and test that it works for your consumers.  The cloud gives you the perfect platform…

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.

There were many other sites with the same objective and it was difficult to stand…

Do something which scares you…..

Why is that we feel sadder when we loose $100 as compared to the joy in making the same $100. When analyzed dispassionately it does seem rather strange that we should have differening intensity of emotion between the two as BOTH are one and the same thing.

My take is that a monetary loss for us is BUT always accompanied by a feeling of inadequacy and is always equated with failure(this is more true in the male gender). We feel sadder as on one hand we have lost money but worse as we…
