Guy of small things...

Big things are important. They help you steer from happiness or misery in one shot...but this post is not about them. This one is for the joy of small things.

This one is for...

1. Treading on unknown path - asking way from people and reaching to places ...
I dont have a very good sense of directions and so I seldom take unknown ways...but when I have time I like doing this...may be unconsciously it helps keep the traveler inside me.

2. Siting in Sun and scribbling my thoughts...like right now...I am the "Winter guy" - sitting in Sun and dreaming - fav past time ;)

3. Seeing her cry over an emotional movie - and feeling tears in my own eyes

4. Looking in the playful eyes of Aakshun...and enjoying his dance on Dhoom song

5. Roaming endlessly and aimlessly in markets - enjoying the stillness and vibrancy - local delicious cuisines always there to rev it up

6. Finding a thousands note in my old wallet!

7. Winning over a bank (read HSBC) and getting the due money back (with an apology!!!)

8. Selling old phone at good prices...by planning the entire thing well..

The list is long...and I relish all of them...the bottomline is...Not only am I the "BIG MOMENTS GUY" - I am also the "GUY OF SMALL THINGS"

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…
