Dear Women- do not give in!

That’s the word.. Do not ever give in!

Its tough being a woman as you are told, u heard, u feel, etc. But it is tough being anyone and they just learn to be themselves with the same gutso.

So you might be sidelined more, you might be leched at daily, you might be expected to give up everything for the sake of your family, it must be physiologically tougher for you, you might not have that many same gender idols to look at, etc.etc. but still do not give up!!
Always remember that for any situation and any person be it the celebrity or a poor man on platform, it requires extra effort and the zeal to get through.
The answer that you need to ask yourself at the end of everything is that who are you and what do you want?

There is a way around everything, you have to just go and pound on it.

Do not wait for the govt to create quota for you, or the companies to create special work profile for you. Be a leader, do not procrastinate, do not wait for others approvals.. Just believe in yourself and go for it. You shall discover your mojo on your own!


Live by example – Dearest, Our Abdul Kalam

When I read, hear, think of bestest people like you – selfless, passionate, hard working, patriotic, great mind & human being my mind thinks what can I do to take your teachings forward.

Another thing I feel bad is when I see around me & find 99.99% people wasting their lives by worshipping screen idols, materialism more than true values and great idols like you.

Answer to both these questions is to conduct your life to live by example. Live your life in a way that others get forced to change their thoughts and ways. Do it as a sense of indifference with no expectations whatsoever, do it as you love to do it.

Coming to Mr. Abdul Kalam, you were no less than Buddha, Gandhi to us growing kids around you. It was us you wanted to touch and inspire with your words and work, I know that I will give everything I have to achieve that 101% to make India developed by 2020.

Thank you Sir Kalam!

The focus has to be consumer solution at the core..

This line is inspired from my experiences with people, where I have noted that people who have done ultimately well in life have had some matter within himself or herself. (Am referring to people who have genuinely done well).
These people have answered questions that nobody could with same conviction and have found some strong connect with grassroots.

Same, for the startup space I feel, it has to answer some untouched aspect of life or the existing aspect in a never seen ever way.
Just changing packages or prices or faces shall not take you long. It has to be your product design, it’s user friendliness, its capability to touch base on all problem statements that sets you apart.

I somehow do admire Rahul Yadav in this aspect that at core, he says the right thing about focusing on customer solution and about solving a problem statement. However, apart from this he goes berserk in simple work professionalism, expressing himself, developing work relationships rapport or keeping a check on his material ambitions. Maybe he thinks there is nothing wrong in him but I do think he will need to be a bigger person to be more successful. The fact that he has potential and history to back him is great.

Somewhere, I have realised this is what I wish to do – to create solutions based on my understanding of technology, retail channel, economics with a special ingredient of creativity but basically providing some unique answers for consumers at mass scale.
The core, the root, the soul can’t change.. The way of presenting it has to adapt itself with time.

Right now am trying to do that with a telecom company that.. How well I do it, time shall answer.


My advice to Delhi Girls .. though I feel they won’t take it!

Delhi girls are a favourite topic of many conversations – when guys want to showcase a typical syndrome of girl or when you think of common names like Neha/Pooja alongwith the typical (Sorry for the repitition of the word) traits in a girl like overfussiness over her looks, her complexion, repetitive usage of word bhaiyaji, checking every other girl out that stands near them from top to bottom!

I come from Allahabad + Ahmedabad & have spent most of my time away from city life. My exposure to the metros only comes from my early occasional visits to the place, when I went to XLRI for MBA and after I started working. I definitely do think that Delhi girls even though being good at heart and loving, affectionate really need to go a long way in terms of growing up & accepting some cruel realities to have a more mature & reserved response.

Also to mention, these are purely based on my experiences & must be taken with a pinch of salt

– Please stop depending on your father, boyfriend, brother, male colleague to help you get ahead of the queue or get you to save the crowds at Metro stations. Facing adversities & harsh situations is as much your right as much theirs. Please insist on taking care of yourself on your own.

– Please start giving more value to the material inside than to the ones outside as they last longer & are the true gems/jewels/beauty to possess.

– Please stop giving up on your education/career for the sake of your families. Your education is not a mean to just help you get a good husband but it is a support for you to pave a way towards being a complete self dependent & qualified individual with sound power of decision making & choices.

– Please stop looking to other girls around you with envy/competition or jealousy. They are as much a human like you are and it will be great if all of us can be a force together than against each other.

– Please don’t shriek your voice at first disagreement itself. There are methods of getting your point across & shrieking or quarrelling just makes for a bad loser.

– All in all, relax a bit more and start trusting yourself more than anyone else. Learn to be a woman of substance & please don’t be afraid in moments of adversity – they are just here to test you & your patience. I am glad to be going to Bombay though 🙂
