It is our 70th independence day. I can’t even imagine what the life or world was 70 years back. Of course, I wasn’t there. I can’t imagine what emergency was like, of course I wasn’t there. But I can’t even imagine what life was 20 years back though I was there. It was a different world, I was a different age, everything had a different meaning.
What is independence? The more I keep thinking about it, the more it hits me. Is independence necessarily a great thing? Are we as humans born to be independent with no boundaries and nothing governing us? What does independence mean and w... Read More
Elon Musk once said, “Creating a company is a very difficult thing. Starting a company is like eating glass and staring into the abyss. You have to do lots of things you don’t like. There’s no time to wallow and lick your wounds. Don’t let stress sideline you. Instead, use it as fuel to keep rocketing ahead, maybe even all the way to Mars."
Today, as I complete 6 years as the CEO of OMLogic, I can for sure tell you that I have eaten glass, stared into the abyss, licked my wounds and have rocketed ahead. Hopefully, we will soon get our Mars landing too.
Having been at the helm of aff... Read More
Reservations were necessary (absolutely necessary) for providing equitable treatment to people across the country. But they should have been removed (atleast refined) years back. Reservations are needed, anyday, to provide equal opportunity but they can't really assure equal treatment by mere implication.
Before we gauge further, let me tell you this blog is NOT about reservations. It is about women empowerment but the quandary remains the same. Last couple of years have been majorly about women empowerment and all the conversations about it.
And I BEG TO DISAGREE!

Launch an online game for people to come and bet on their favourite teams.
And we bring to you UNFIX. The currency in this game is FIXINGS, and you do it all to reduce match fixings. J (Did not someone say, life is full of ironies?)
From Draupadi to Raj Kundra; Betting, both legal and illegal, both what’s yours and what’s not, both making rich and making poor, has always had a special place in the Indian culture. When the scandal around #MatchFixing, #SpotFixing, Raj Kundra, Sreesanth, Vindoo, etc broke, we at OMLogic were heartbroken.
It hit two things that we loved the most; Cri... Read More
Outrageous. Let’s demonstrate. Let’s destroy some public property. Let’s hang some people. Let’s ask for some heads.
We can't be okay with this.
It is very normal for everyone to feel this way after the gruesome gang rape of an innocent girl in Delhi. The question is: Will all this help?
Just 3 days back I was comparing safety in India vs US (Delhi versus Newtown). And here we are, a sad reminder to the world and what's changing around us.
My humble opinion is that it’s not about guns & not about police/security, it is not about lust & not about man's propensity for ... Read More
Read the news and was SHOCKED. Newtown is less than 10 miles from where my house in the US was (I still own the place but I live in India now).
When I moved from there, I was clear that I was moving to a slightly riskier place. A place where it’s easier to get hit, easier to get killed. On the road and outside.
That probably is still true, but I am shaken by what all I have heard in the last few weeks.
That brings me to an interesting debate which has been doing the rounds in the US ever since a couple of shootings in 90's: “Should guns be allowed in US?” Here is what I have heard so... Read More
I have been running a social media agency for years now, and have shied away from starting a blog of my own.. Weird, right!!
Well, come to think of it, not so weird. Everybody in the social media industry seems to want to right, some prolific great writers, and others just like to hear themselves (read in this case).. :-)
No need to start another one of the self-fulfilling kinds..
I have started this blog with an intention of making this a diary of my experiences, and share those with my readers.
I will love to hear feedback, so feel free to shoot if you want..... Read More
