Entrepreneur & CEO

Kapil has a knack of making things simple and that's what makes ​him a great entrepreneur. He believes you have got to be crazy to be an entrepreneur. It is perhaps the most frustrating of tasks, utterly thankless and always chaotic! Per him, a CEO ought to be a people's person. Someone who thrives on helping people grow. Someone whose base role is to make themselves replaceable as early as possible and pick-up newer growth avenues for themselves and the company. He is popular as someone who means business when he does business but a true prankster when he is not. Kapil enjoys sleepless nights and crazy work hours and over years, he has mentored numerous people at and outside OMLogic and has helped them grow. Coming from a very humble background, Kapil has created OMLogic as one of most premium digital communications agency without raising a single penny from anywhere. His has been a true entrepreneurial journey.

Mindfuck? What The Fuck Is That?

Mindfuck? What The Fuck Is That?

Let me first put this in context. The crisis that you see most people go through every so often, the stress and the unhappiness that most people have in their life and in things around them is called mindfuck. Whether its existential crisis or issues in relationships or some other seemingly missing aspect in most people’s life, the underlying theme is called mindfuck. So, what is the classic definition of mindfuck? Wikipedia describes Mindfuck as Psychological manipulation, a principle of discordianism. These words are definitely going to put someone in mindfuck if they already weren... Read More

What’s In A Process?

What’s In A Process?

A process is a series of actions or steps taken in order to achieve a particular end. By definition a process should make working easier, replicable and take out potential misadventures or deviations. While this continues to be the objective, a prime need for the process is not to become a barrier. A process is prima facie meant to make the work more streamlined. In my experience, most processes fail on their rigidity. They fail when people start using them as an excuse to get out of work or as an excuse to not take responsibility. To be true to the process, never say ‘I won’t bec... Read More

GST – Where It All Goes Wrong!

GST – Where It All Goes Wrong!

Goods and Services Tax – The biggest tax reform in India since independence! Conceptually, the best thing that could happen in a country laden with incredibly complicated tax structure. For a very long time I have been a strong proponent, till I saw chinks in the chain. Don’t get me wrong. It’s a great philosophy. It’s the right thing to do but for the implementation structure and the actual execution. It’s a classic case of the Indian politico ruining something good, just so they don’t lose votes. So, what’s wrong with GST: GST should have reduced the amount of Tax peop... Read More

10 years, No Regrets

10 years, No Regrets

Today is reality day. 9th May. It has a very significant presence in my life. It’s the day when I decided on calling my new venture OMLogic. A company that has become a part of my life bigger than anything could ever be. OMLogic, the name, completes a decade of being, and its certainly time to reminisce. I still keep getting asked, mostly by people who find my decision disappointing and confusing, as to why I decided to move back to India. And I have given multiple different answers to them based on who was asking the question. Entrepreneurship bug, parents, Delhi life, kids are top amongst ... Read More

E-commerce Is No Joke!

E-commerce Is No Joke!

E-commerce has lately become a keenly watched sector in India, especially with a handful of home-grown successful ventures being valued at billions of dollars. Likes of Sachin Bansal and Binny Bansal have inspired many of us to join the e-commerce league of India. As easy as it seems, it isn’t one of the simpler businesses and definitely not the most lucrative one in the initial days. The business model involves an array of operations ranging from acquiring sellers, finding efficient logistic partners, raising funds and most importantly providing customer satisfaction without incurring lo...

Time to Serve the Alma-Mater

Time to Serve the Alma-Mater

When you’re young all you want to do is grow up. When you grow up into successful adults, all that you want to do is go back to the roots and relive your childhood. I have been a part of the best of educational institutions in India and abroad, acquainted with stellar professors but my alma-mater DAV School, Shalimar Bagh shall always be the one I would want to revisit. Living away from my native land in USA always brought memories of my beautiful childhood in the playgrounds, classrooms, and canteen from DAV School. DAV laid the wreath for success and excellence, carving inch by inch... Read More

See you at NILF 2016!

See you at NILF 2016!

NASSCOM India Leadership Forum, perhaps one of the best gatherings of thought leaders and global influencers from all over the globe. The event is focused on exchanging ideas and experiences related to the world of technology. But that's not what interests me in this year's event. Sure it will be a gala event. Sure there will be lots of wonderful national and international speakers. Sure there will be lots of business generated and discussed on the sidelines. But what is really exciting for me is that this year represents a transition. A transition from the exchange of ideas figuring... Read More
