The Full Moon

22nd January 2008...while going back to office ..in around 7:30 pm....I saw the moon...it seemed it was beckoning me to look at it...and when I noticed...the scene of "Sex and Lucia" where the moon is shrouded by a cloud...it was an amazing view...but before I present my views here are some of the views of people whom I reached out and I thought would have loved to see the moon in its form...

Consider this before you read on the bellow interpretations...

It was very chilly - around 4-5 degree centigrade...with lot of winds...moon was getting covered by fast moving clouds as if playing hide and seek with Earth...

1. I ve always loved full moon.....i can feel the presence of the ultimate power n let out all my inner thoughts n feelings n be sure of their secrecy....i can feel the warmth even in this chill..also i wonder as to what is the extent of nature's beauty...:-)

2. The chill invoked adventure in me, the darkness a fear and the unusual bright light of the moon beckoned me to explore the unexplored.

3. The moon is chilled with the winds,but has a fire within.......It spreads joy n light,but is dying from within and no one can see or feel its pain

Amazing view...and amazing interpretations...

Here is mine...for me it stood for - "Craving to be not alone"
It appeared that moon was rushing past the clouds just to catch few glances at the Earth...it had completed its journey of a month and has come back to spend some time with Earth - but the cloud was blocking its way ...and its rushing as if in a nightmare...but not able to pass through...racing against its passion - its tired but is still fighting to catch last few glimpses of it...

I can write one more version of the same thing - but not today - not in the mood ...

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…
