The Secret - Rhonda Byrne


I don't like a "self-help" book - but I got curious with this book as this book had been doing quite good in States and raking up quite good ranking. I got curious and thus decided to read this one.

I did not like the book much - I already know what the basic tenet the book has harped in more than 150 pages (and there is a movie as well!!!)

The Book talks about 'Being Optimistic" - we need to think that we can do anything because of "Law of Attraction" -
The "Law of Attraction" principle posits that feelings and thoughts can attract events, from the workings of the cosmos to interactions among individuals in their physical, emotional, and professional affairs.
Summary is - If you think you can do it - you will be able to anything else NO!

If you want someone to fall in love with you - first love yourself - since like attracts like - if you are not happy or content with yourself how will any other person be?  If you don't send out I AM WORTHY LOVE message in the universe - how will the universe be able to understand you

The book is presented in a narrative dialogue documentary manner and is an easy read....the best part is the summary of each chapter given in the end...

Overall - I think if you don't know that you can do wonders by your mind - i.e. by positive attitude - please do read the book else its worth a miss.

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.
