Introducing MAJ

By this post I would like to introduce MAJ, Madhavi, my co-worker at HCL.
It was a pleasant surprise for me to find out that she is an avid blogger, so I celebrate by adding her in my Favorite links and here is part of her writing. For more details you may visit her blog

And MAJ I really liked this piece :)

You will ask me Love

How I am
I will tell you about
How fine I am
I get through the day
I get things done
I know my way
From dawn to dawn
In the twilight zone
Life passes away

Passes away

With Time

And sometimes when the walls
Of this closed room
Grow closer and closer down on me

I have no expectation and
Hence no Fear
No one will come knocking
To disturb me here

Except piquant Memory
Except Dead Memory

The kind that causes pleasure no more
Because it cannot cause pain
The kind that shows
No rainbows because
It cannot precipitate the dammed rain

From dark nebulous clouds
Those abstract shrouds
To uncertain feeling

Because, when, Love, you left me
Laughter died
Along with tears
Excitement died
Along with fears
There isn't any love left in me
So there isn't any need
To give or to receive
And ever since then
I have not been very happy
And I am thankful to you
Because neither have I been sad
And that's not bad

After all, that's not so bad
I am fine, thank you.
Thanks for asking.
No I am not sad.
I am getting along and that after all
Is not so ba

Questions on its efficacy and impact are bound to happen. Especially when world's top leaders spend millions of dollars. Not counting their opportunity cost of millions of dollars which they could have used for their work.
I attempted my own rationale on 5 reasons which make World Economic Forum work.

How Branding can help your startup

I can bucket a startup entrepreneur into either of 2 buckets – one – Branding-is-for-Biggies! and second  who believe -Branding-is-important-after-Series-A-funding”. And first bucket is full till the brim. Let me start with a simple question with a possibly simple answer -

Remembering Tej...

You don't normally think of writing this for a friend who was just 31 years old.
Friend who you have just met.
I dont want any of you, reading this, to experience this ever again.

Tejendra Gwala, or Tej, as we lovingly called him, a 6ft 2 inches man was still a boy at heart. Full of dreams, full of youth and full of  dare to be different from everyone out there.

Few things -

1. He knew how to make you comfortable - I spent innumerable evenings with him - where he would just go and start speaking with strangers - whether t was a gym, dhaba or a 5 star restaurant

2. He knew his values - I was just 1 year younger than I was but he respected me and Aakriti (my wife) as his real brother and Bhabhi. There were dozens of time, when he would just call and say - I want "Ghar ka khana" and lets go for a drive.
