Past few days....

Blogging was not a top priority for last few weekends but I thought before I forget most of the happenings, I should write whatever I can ....

1. Dinner at MAJ's place on 28 July

Today after about 16 days, I can still remember the corn curry, paneer ki sabzi, chawal, rotiyan ,etc. It was delicious and yes everything in MAJ's place was exactly like I had imagined to have been - meticulous and detailed - and then Parth treated us with the best sweets possible - his songs and his guitar.

It was a great experience - when do we do it again MAJ???

2. Weekend of 4-5 August

Megha, Rajit, Abhishek, Aakriti and myself went to the lake (which was actually a pond and not lake and even pond is treating that place with respect ;))...and had a picnic...and from there we went to IHC to catch any play and luckily got a play happening - it was mediocre but company was great so enjoyed.
Pics: Fish pond at IHC and scene from the play
Aakriti and Megha were too thrilled of watching such colorful fishes so closely and Rajit was contemplating about what it would be to eat them :)

3. Weekend 12-13 August

I would remember it as movie weekend...
Watched following movies:
1. Casanova - I wasted my time watching it - but it was great to know that a guy who is notoriously known for his charm with women was also a brilliant and sensibly genuine guy

2. XMEN3 - the last standing - quite good but not the best of the X Men series.

3. A walk to remember: Quite nice movie, especially the scenes of North Carolia were quite refreshing.

4. HP 1 and HP 2:
Out of curiosity (as a major force of my life has special interest in the series), I decided to watch it and loved the intricacies of magic and tragic depicted in the a lot on wikipedia as well

Top 5 things that make World Economic Forum work

World Economic Forum, Davos 2011.  5 days from 26 - 30 January 2011.  2500 delegates. 26000 people.  In 1 village called Davos whose population for the rest of the 51 weeks is only 13000.
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.

3. He was the best closer that you would want in your team - knew how to finish things. Whether it was AV shoot in Chennai, fixing dozens of cabs, writing a strategic prese…
