Its That Kinda India

Yes India is growing & India shall keep growing fast for next few decades! The standards of livings shall improve, the infrastructure shall go up, Businesses shall prosper, education & qualifications shall go up!

There will be alot we will miss & complain – but lets keep that for some other day!

Today, I wish to mention that how Different India will be once it grows up more! We have examples of plenty of developed economies in Democracy & Communist spaces – USA, Europe, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan. But India is coming up different – very different from others.

The colours, shades of Culture, Family orientations, Concerns/Fears form very much part of the pattern developing!
It does seem confused many a times – not here neither there. You see alot of aspirations, a lot of efforts not getting completely through, alot of announcements at govt & institution levels, alot of drama in the names of celebrity lives, the great divide between the few privileged & majority deprived, alot of arrogance & over confidence at Youth level, etc. etc.
But it seems to be GIVING ITS OWN FLAVOUR to the whole story!

India shall be dominant in many spaces for sure – Sports, Fashion, Movies, Technology, Health, Medical, Manpower, Agriculture, etc. etc. – everything will have its own roadmap period to achievement & some even might not however the lives of everyone shall be improved without differentiation & that is a DREAM we millennial have grown up with!

Regarding my own space in it – am sure there will be one amongst many 🙂


My Own Thing.. Stamped MS

I just want my own things….. I don’t wish to compare or discuss or envy or even boast!

I just wish things to happen the way they should for ME….

At Work : Create some great Products with Great Funny & Intellectual Beings… Grow Gradually without any conflict & envy…. Significant enough to be noticed as an achiever & a Happy Good one!

In Family : A happy, motivated Soul with a sense of Objectiveness! Small Loving & Supporting Family who Love doing their own things & still enjoy look forward to doing things together! Everyone is Proud of each other & themselves.. Comes across as Pvt & still Social to Others around. Very Much at Peace

Husband : Someone Loving, Caring who believes in Simple things & is an old soul yet Fun in contemporary times! Passionate about his own things & supportive of mine. Patience to be a virtue, Smile to die for!

House : A small cozy yet Modern abode which loves to welcome one & all – smells of warmth & bondings!

Hobbies : Hasn’t Travel & Click become too cliche` .. Still they do form my very strong Pillars along with Reading, writing! I wish to Travel to all the interesting places along with my Husband & then Family… It livens me UP like nothing !!

Passion : To create & execute Product Ideas for different use case bases

My Own Ventures : Agency + Dream Realisation + Product Startup + SHG + VC + Startup Cell in my own alma mater! Give back to where I came from Proudly & Happily…

Growing Old : Gracefully & Smilingly with my innocence & Nobility intact!

I just want things to be stamped with my own individuality! AM YES!


Its that Kinda Phase

Its just that kinda stationary phase with alot of inbuilt inertia – trying to set things in motion but only receiving a force back to square one!

Rarely happens but happens am sure! Also there is no definite way to navigate through the same!

  • Some stay still
  • Some try too hard to make things happen
  • Some take solace in religion, astrology
  • Some find peace in loved ones
  • Some find solace in their hobbies/passion
  • Some keep planning for future
  • Some find peace in materialistic things
  • Some by focusing on physical health

I have decided to learn from the same as much I can – patience, working on my personality, knowledge, skills, networking, assets being some!
I have also decided to become my best friend in the same phase as none whatsoever can understand what am going through or feeling or why/ what I think to the exact detailed point.

Am quite certain that nothing remains constant – happiness, peace, noise, sadness! That’s how powerful Time is!
However what remains is your capability to manage the sail of your boat to face all kinds of weathers.

Am hopeful & optimistic for better times as ever!

Indian Gifts that will shine always #2018

  • YOGA
  • Ayurveda
  • Indian Education System
  • Family Ecosystem
  • Business Culture of the small families, SMEs & SHGs
  • Mahabharat + Ramayan epics
  • Peace – Buddha, Gandhi, Jainism Message
  • Technology Outsourcing yep – The Brain Drain!
  • Strong depth of History & Culture

What India needs to be known for even more :

  • Creating an indigenous model for rural + urban cooperation in health, education, individual spending habits
  • Lost & Found unique examples of Art, culture, food, handicraft, faith, medicinal treatments, astrology, science, maths
  • Unique Business Models like Dabbawala serving masses involving huge labour & connect with upper middle classes
  • Adopting Modernism in Agriculture (yet to happen)
  • Developing models around sanitation, cleanliness, desalination of water, renewable energy, Better Forecast Mechanisms

My Fears for Indian Growth :

  • Money Ownership concentrated to limited HNIs much like Middle East
  • Aspirations & Representations like USA but lack of system might topple them to the other side
  • So far rapid growth & development in manufacturing, electronics, Digital is due to China (aping)
  • Laggardness in promoting Pride & History like Europe
  • Different cultures & variety like SEA & Europe again proving to be a challenge

In reality – India shall grow by a unique model of Govt & a few HNI hand in hand for now. Remaining Pvt bodies as well as SMEs will have to be alot more cooperative to Govt regulations & financial guidelines to ensure the growth is entirely & completely inclusive. Once that happens & penetration of the Good can go deep, growth will automatically happen which I have no doubt about.

Also India & Indians need to understand a few other things :

  • Less spending time on mobile & digital devices
  • More time being spent on exploring & understanding the world + people around you
  • Less spending time & energy & giving less importance to celebrities & entertainment modes or other distracting modes
  • More time being spent on knowing your trueselves & your true potentials
  • Aping others blindly for solutions, inspirations
  • Being independent, fearless, self reliant in true meaning


Celebrity Diarrhoea!

Had to write this to get it out of my system!

These days when the economy is on a sort of stand still & not much movement is happening on the policy decision making after a few biggies like Demonetisation, GST, Jio, Patanjali – it looks like the media especially the Digital Media is hell bent on making someone a Hero & creating content around them! They are making anything around a movie ‘star’ or a cricket ‘star’ a national event & wish everyone involved to be following every hook, step, twitch, bowel movement or what not! Am Sorry! Spare me the least!

When I open my newspaper – I want to read actual news in politics, economics, public policies, education, rural reformation, science or even art, literature. But this celebrity worship syndrome (CWS) that the media seems to be suffering from & want to infect the remaining sane audience is just not cool, so very unhealthy.

It has reached to the level that am afraid of opening my Google Feed News, Youtube Feed, Various News Channel Feeds, websites – am also sceptical to meet some of my wannabe friends & other immature people, who cannot help but discuss Celebrities & their wonderful lives. How their lives are perfect & how we are made to feel worse. Am sorry again, I refuse to be part of this shanghais! #SpareMe again!

I anyways have started to lose a lot of respect for the internet generation & the Smartphone generation (15-28 yrs old, well provided for the first 3 needs on Hierarchy Pyramid) who seem to be hell bent on only following what looks, sounds, appears “COOL” & have stopped understanding the harsh parts of sacrifice, hardwork, dedication, mental toughness, focus, attention span deficiency! But they are hell bent ambitious & know how to get their work done.

Current Digital Media & this “COOL” generation are a lethal combination who shall take our social, mental, physical, financial, economical sensibilities to a quick down trail very soon! #SpareMe

Mithali Raj – Second Blog in 6 mths!

This article made me write a 2nd blog on her!

I feel so much common with her that its difficult to describe in words. The struggle, standing up for self, not giving up on one’s values, keeping parents & performance first – these are the simple but strong values that middle class girls in India from 80s & early 90s were brought up with.

So many of them gave in to marriage, materialism, shallowness for reasons unknown! Yet it feels so RIGHT when a few of them make it to the TOP & wish to be raring to go even more – Mithali Raj, you inspire me to not give up despite all hardships & disappointments and am most thankful to you for that.

Second, you inspire me how to carry myself with grit & humbleness!

Am sure you inspire so many others a lot more – my wish & pray that girls in India find a permanent place for sports in their daily lives for keeping fit & personality development. Also I hope more parents encourage their girls to not give up on sports!

Human’s Stay on Earth

Have been thinking lately (these thoughts are definitely not based on any recent developments but are based on my observations, interactions, discussions, reading over the past known years).. am quite certain of following views as well :

  • I do not think that Humans were supposed to breed on this planet, this planet was (if) created then was meant for appreciation, wonder, happiness, peace, plentifulness, etc. As story goes Adam n Eve faulted & every one later are bearing the (black) fruits of it!
  • Coming on this earth, in which family, country, religion, etc. are not chosen by anyone. However what one believes, controls, speaks, acts, behaves, etc. are & should be owned by the individual herself/himself. Saying this is how it happens coz of background or circumstances is simply a poor craftsman
  • Now that one has come on this planet & got a life, body, mind, heart – one should make the max use of it to lead a fulfilling life which does not harp on any negativity, demeans others lives, compares, hurts oneself or others, etc.
  • Whatever life one gets – 10/30/50/70 years – one should lead a healthy meaningful life while trying to uplift others around, give hope/faith amongst others. Create & sustain happiness while discarding materialism.
  • In order to achieve this, one is gifted skills/knowledge/awareness which are to be made the most use of to uplift themselves as well as others around them. Acting selfish is going against the basic purpose of this life.

Zingography : Tech/Product/UX/StartUp Update # 7

Today, let us discuss the importance of “Art of Organising” to be relevant in today’s Management Space.

The Optimum Art of Organising & Planning to ensure efficiency however not causing too much delay & redundancy is a difficult Art to Manage.
It requires attention to detail, understanding of situations + people, right amount of patience to hold your horses or speak at the most opportune time. Above all it required alot of maturity, analytical skills & calmness to manage all the situations.

In my understanding, this is quite the skillset a qualified MBA is supposed to have to be an effective manager & leader. In same breath let me mention the subjects of MBA course in my understanding prove to be most critical for a leader in due course of their professional careers :

  • Organisational Behaviour : Though its difficult for young MBA minds to absorb & estimate the impact of all the topics in a class of 20+ hours, it is the subject which cuts across all students & is applicable throughout the careers every single moment
  • Game Theory : If one subject can teach the outcome probability best then it is this subject – one should always be prepared & calculating to know the best outcome possible in every situation/event for themselves or colleagues or business, etc. Its quite the lovely topic
  • Operational Research : This subject teaches the art of balancing different sets, values, variables, constants to ultimately reach your optimum goal of efficient results.

There are other subjects worth mentioning though matter a lot on how they are taught – Managerial Skills, Leadership Skills, Strategy, Accounting, etc.

My efforts of mentioning all this in my Tech/Product Blog is that how relevant they prove in giving me a grip & edge for doing Product Management on daily basis. Phase Gate, Optimisations, Filtering, Detailing, Deep diving should become more of a habit that comes naturally while thinking, talking, acting, deciding on things for future growth/Leadership roles.

A word of caution – please do not even think of becoming “Monica” for the same! Phew, that’s OCD.

Mithali Raj & Indian Women Cricket Team – A salute!

Who has not been impressed enough with the recent show of our ladies in the Cricket World Cup 2017 with their gallant march to the Finals by taking one world class team after the other down!

They took everyone by surprise with the inexperience in their team & played excellent knocks of 100s & taking multiple 5 wickets especially by Spinners. Indian team looked inspired, motivated & FRESH! They were wanting to go for the Kill & looking to WIN all the time.

Words fail me to impress Mithali Raj who has become a role model for me for sure with her cool headed & non interfering approach, solid knocks & smiling yet confident personality. Her body language exuberates Modesty, Dignity, Mental Strength, Defyness, Eagerness to prove all wrong against all odds.
Her story has impressed me & am sure so are the stories of 14 other girls who have come against various odds in their lives to perform at the big arena & become a world class player! Its not easy & everyone should know that.

In India, women sports is not really looked upon as a career option after so many years of Independence, Education. Though things have changed & we have had some national heroes like Mary Kom, Sania Mirza, Saina Nehwal, Sindhu, PT Usha, Dipa Karmakar, Sakshi Malik recently. But we are nowhere when compared to West & our culture, mindset has to go a long way to change for things on ground to change. Money shall flow, management shall improve if we get more & more acceptance from Society & Families at grass root level.

Perhaps this is the reason why I am so heart-broken at Ladies not winning the Cup. Rest am sure they have done more than their best & have made us so so so Proud while giving us so many moments to cherish & cheer for! Am still rooting for Women IPL to start soon.

Heart goes out to Mithali & Jhulan – am hoping against hope that they will give next World Cup another chance for us as they still have a lot to offer.

Rest am sure, things will change for the better! Amen
