North East – A dream come true

North East – A dream come true

Though I don’t have a ‘wanderlust’ tattoo on my arms but traveling gives me the same high that an Indian cricket fan gets when MS Dhoni hits the winning boundary on the last ball. There is something so alluring about those magnanimous mountains and those curvy roads that you feel like going back to them time and again. There is a saying in India ‘more remote the place gets, more hospitable the people are’ – in my opinion truer words…

Where is my news ?

Where is my news ?

I am of the opinion that the value of your personalised data points is way more than you can imagine. Being a part of the data boom journey within IT industry, I can vouch for the fact that your personal data is being analyzed like never before. They are peeling you layer by layer like an onion while you weep about your privacy. Whether it is bombardment of flight advertisements as soon as you checked a potential booking on MakeMyTrip…

Cashless In Kashi

Cashless In Kashi

I had never seen my father so angry before. He slammed the door as the ashes flew all across our 3 storeyed house and locked himself to make a few phone calls to ascertain the level of mess our family was into. It was around 8:30 PM when Indian Prime Minister – Narendra Modi announced that notes of 500 and 1000 would cease to be a legal tender from that very midnight; though I’m quite forgetful when it comes to…

Taxi Driver & his Blackberry (2012)

*I had written this post back in 2012 and this is just ponder over the fact that how many things have changed drastically since then and a lot of things haven’t changed at all – like E-Commerce Valuations still being exorbitant* People often say that best lessons of the life are learnt while having a conversation and consciously observing how people act. They cant be more accurate. If you have this knack of striking random conversations with rickshawallas and cab…

Replying never goes out of fashion

Replying never goes out of fashion

Back in 2011 when we were struggling to get management internships as potential MBA graduates, most of our peers were already having their internship confirmations in their mail boxes and all we had was a 512 mbps internet connection, a self curated database of finance companies in India and a lot of patience to get dejected doing cold calls all day long. Look, everyone knows the drill. You need to write customised emails, you need to have a personal pitch…

To write or not to write

To write or not to write

One of the longest battles I’ve been fighting with myself, is to write. So I thought of writing about it (after an insane amount of procrastination). Though I love writing but it comes at it’s own pace. At the same time, I strongly believe in the fact – ‘The more you do something, the better you get at it’ and I also believe in ‘Quality over quantity’ and because of these conflicting views, the battle is long and fierce. As…

PONDICHERRY & AUROVILLE

PONDICHERRY & AUROVILLE

The tale of 2 cities – Part B In my last article, we roamed around in Pondicherry aimlessly. This is not going to be any different. Auroville is not a place to visit, it is an experience itself. In my opinion, if you are not going to live in Auroville for around 2 months, it will be very difficult for you to absorb this place. Though a lot of things in my life don’t allow me for this luxury, but…
