Some Life Changing Moments

Writing some Life Changing Moments, Good & Bad :

  • Apart from coming into the Earth – being born in India, in an educated middle class family, in Northern Part of India, living in a thriving industrial engineers colony with families of different backgrounds, kids from different schools, different aspirations, mindsets
  • Since it was a partially Joint Family – so influence on my GrandMom & relatives being stronger
  • Admission into a Convent & adapting to its requirements – English speaking, strictness for discipline, competition for appreciation, emphasis on being a Leader
  • Playing with more boys in the colony -> resulting into being easily exploited & for no fault of mine
  • Exposure into Badminton Coaching & Theatre Classes – Perhaps the best aspect apart from being Convent Educated
  • Having some great friends like Nishu & Sweta Di for the reasons of mutual appreciation & good quality discussions Only
  • Not being allowed to pursue Badminton on an advanced Level made me quite sad
  • Some great trips to my Maternal Grandparents house – huge bungalow & amazing fruits to enjoy with loads of cousins
  • Moving to Ahmedabad – adapting to new school & friends circle (Uff! – toughness was a new feeling more so for emotional baggage)
  • Tough studies days – exposure to a bigger & developed city life!
  • 10th & 12th Board exams – > BTech admissions (you get exposed to systems & start disliking it there & then)
  • Some new set of people you come across & thinking about your career ahead! (Again UFFF! – This was perhaps one of the Darkest phases 🙂 since I felt everything I have done so far is a waste of everything)
  • Being Introduced to CAT ! <Yippee – 1> Discovered something great! & Totally fell in Love with it & was convinced to do it more & more!
  • XLRI admission & 2 years campus experience – It played a strong role in being who I am & what I hold dear to myself
  • JJMI Internship – Short & Lovely 🙂
  • Tata Stint – was not excited about going there but I think it turned out better than expected! <Travel, Click & Social Circle were found here>
  • Airtel & Snapdeal – They came & went like Firecrackers which shaped my profile for sure but also gave me some unasked pain! Its ok, No Pain so No Gain 🙂
  • Discovering a Permanent Friend in Krishna & Buddha -> Watching Mahabharat & Reading Gita is a natural healing process
  • Current Role Profile – No comments till I move to next role but I will always be thankful for it to give me a chance to build my Product Profile
  • Product Management & UX Discovery – Definitely Yippee -2 Moment as it has given me so much that I wanted to be & do in terms of professional space! I know this will be the path I want to be on & will take me towards my Ultimate Dream Realisations from here!
  • Much of my Travel + Click + Sports (Playing & Watching) + Social Entrepreneurship Moments have given me the Small Joys & Reaffirmations required at different turns of my life! Much Grateful for them
  • How my dependence on my Friends & others has reduced is amazing 🙂 Much more Thankful for that since I know I won’t allow anyone to hurt me emotionally or take advantage of me. How I have learnt to SelfCare & SelfLove & depend on my own instincts gives me the much required strength.

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!

Some Blabber More..

Last night dinner with my cousin.. a few thoughts came up, which I have been thinking a lot lately for self improvement, became clearer & stronger further :

  • Confidence to look inside by being objective came from doing decently well at WORK – which is probably not Ideal or recommended but in my case it had to be via Work because it plays an extremely important role in my life.
  • Piush had alot to do with giving this confidence & then mentoring me to look further inside to become a better person – though his recommendations were from work aspects but its not surprising that exactly same qualities are required by me in current life – To be Analytical, Amiable 🙂 always..
  • Sneha’s constant response to my blabbers, traits, behaviours, words were more than helpful – Probably I am indebted to her for Life for this. I used to always think that am high on empathy, concern for others & outward looking while honestly I was only being selfish in all my pursuits by only expressing what I felt was right while ACTUALLY NOT realising what the other person is saying or wanting to say or means or feels. This has been a revelation of sorts to be equally if not more concerned about what the other person is saying, feeling, thinking, wanting.
  • Probably all my relationships have gone wrong at some points coz of my constant need to control & looking inward only – Mac, Rahul, Appy, Shweta Di, Nakul are a few I can think FirstHand.
  • Am not very good at Letting Go! It comes from Impatience, not trusting others to do the Right, not giving space – COMPLETE NO NO!
  • I was not very good at having difficult conversations – but have to learn the art of having a difficult conversation in a calm & peaceful way.
  • I did fear losing others and myself a lot – majorly Fear was making all the decisions which is not the Right way always! 

Zingography : Tech/Product/UX/StartUp Update # 4

Its my 4th Update in 2 months but its not too late to admit that I do not consider myself a techie or a geek! I love having a life without gadgets or electricity for that matter – amidst pure nature & seeking, providing organic life with the basics.

However, Alas, we are in 21st Century which is moving fast & needs solutions/answers even faster – so people like me try & ploy our minds/education into providing.

I do feel that I think consumers & that is my greatest strength plus since I understand technology of mobile + telecom + e-commerce – I am able to answer a lot of queries. Having said that, I have to read zillion articles/GIFs/Infographics/Apps/Websites to be updated on what’s happening across the world by the unit of a millionth of a second!

So today I will be sharing some of my favourite App Designs but before that I want to make a point about how designs evolve.

Dictionary definition of Design is : “a plan or drawing produced to show the look and function or workings of a building, garment, or other object before it is made.

Another definition is : “to plan and fashion the form and structure of an object, work of art, decorative scheme, etc.”

Basically, Design can start from a dream or a word or a thought or a breath of air to be translated into ppt/excel/drawing board/software/camera/blueprint/magazine/ newspaper/ mobile app/ website, etc.

And that’s what makes design so generic yet so special!

And here’s to SUSTAINABLE CREATIVITY!!

Coming back to some of my favorite designs : (Do give your comments)

Random Musings 4th Feb 2017

Random Musings for a Weekend :
Some Friends Disappoint You – Let them!
You Do not get enough Appreciation at Work – Let it Be!
You Do not Find your Kind of People around – Be So!
You are not able to find time for your Passions & things you truly care – Not Cool!
You do not find enough strength to not repeat same mistakes – Not Good at all!
You get disappointed easily & require constant motivation – Disastrous!
You find something worth improving in yourself but do not find enough inspiration – Look inside further!
But do not be too Harsh upon yourself, everything is natural over here & let it flow – accept everything that comes along even the injustice, wrong-doings, rude behaviour. Speak/Express Out in whichever manner it comforts you but do not hurt yourself for long to make the dents permanent!
Let it heal, let it breathe space & comfort! Everything is good & will find its space soon.
Always remind yourself that at the end its the Mother Earth which will survive, we all are going to perish & be part of 5 elements of nature!
