Usually, people work through it but sometimes you find these ‘people’ who love to make epic excuses to get out of coming to work.

10 on 10 – The Next Digit!

Hard to imagine it’s been 10 years. 10 years when some of us against all the odds took on a setup with Rs 2 lacs of revenue, Rs 5 lacs of expenditure and an outgoing set of people doing frauds and everything else to bring us down. While some will look at us as a […]

Keyboard is Mightier Than the Pen is Mightier Than the Sword – Cyber Terrorism

“These are the best of times, these are the worst of times.” The above lines best describe the changing nature of media and news. From a simplistic world where there were 8-10 news outlets that regulated everything, where there was a clear distinction of Alpha male in news (the news generators) and the Beta male […]

It’s the biggest festival of India. Its what binds everyone together. Its one of the few things that transcends above caste, region, gender and believe it or not, even religion.

Digital India: Decoding the Myths

This month, I had a distinct pleasure to speak at Bareilly, “New India: Opportunities and Challenges”, an event organized by Jagran Group and Future College. I was asked to talk about Digital India and Make In India. Perhaps the 2 initiatives that have governed the development of India over the last 2 years.
