Being Human – Stages of Life – 29/10/21

This is my own theory of life.

We have multiple stages in our life.

At each stage of our life, we feel that this is the best stage of our life. It cannot get better than this. We don’t want this to…

Daily Human – Paths – 14/10/21

Was watching this series. A young African American woman is going to lead her first surgery. She was nervous and expressing it to her boss – an Asian American women. What her boss said was profound.

She said there was no need to doubt…

Daily Human – Loss – 9/10/21

Someone I was very fond of and very attached to passed away today.

The last time we met, two years ago, we chatted and laughed for 4 hours.

I grew up in a super joint family ( the kind you cant fathom and I…

Daily Human – Rwanda – 2/10/21

I started watching this documentary series about football on Amazon Prime. It’s really well made and highly recommended.

The first episode is about Rwanda. About the 1994 genocide in which more than a million people died. Almost everyone lost someone who was dear to them. In most cases, they were butchered in front of them.

It was horrible.

And then football helped heal the country and bring back a semblance of hope.

It was very sad for most part and then there was a little cheer at the end.

Daily Human – Little Sisters – 1/10/21

My elder daughter was doing something to her hair and making a video of it.

My younger daughter was making her presence felt from time to time. Like all irritating little sisters and brothers do.

So the elder one turned the hair video into an “irritating little sister” video. Funny captions and all.

It’s the funniest thing I have seen in a while.

This is something I strongly believe in. Before I tell you WHY, I will first tell you HOW I arrived at this conclusion.

I had been studying various aspects of marketing as part of my job. While doing that I started trying to understand consumer behaviour by studying things like…

Daily Human – Mothers – 29/9/21

Today, many Hindu communities in the Hindi belt celebrate something called ‘Jitiya’. Mothers fast and pray for the well being of their children.

This year my mom was very sick. She had every medical reason to not fast. Yet, there is no way she wouldn’t have done this puja and not fasted. Only a mother can do this.

My mother is just incredible. Like all the moms in this world.

I hope I can make all sacrifices worth the effort.

And I wonder if I ( as a father ) will ever do as much for my children.

Daily Human – Finally – 30/9/21

Today, Shaya’s ( CaratLane’s sister silver brand ) shop in shop went live in Shoppers Stop Malad. It’s an important step in Shaya’s foray into retail.

But it has a much bigger, far more symbolic meaning for me.

12 years ago, 1 year after…

Daily Human – Cruyff and Guardiola – 28/9/21

I am reading this amazing book about Barca, the football club by Simon Kuper.

In addition to all the other stuff, the writer peers into the minds of two of the most influential people at the club – Johan Cryuff and Pep…

Daily Human – Indra Nooyi and Girish Mathrubootham – 26/9/21

My LinkedIn feed is only showing two things these days.

Stories of Freshworks’ Nasdaq IPO and Indra’s new autobiography.

I don’t have to explain why both of them are so awesome.

I have an extra affinity for Girish and Freshworks…
