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.

3 Years Of The Modi Government: Impressive Words Or Effective Actions

3 Years Of The Modi Government: Impressive Words Or Effective Actions

​Let me begin by congratulating Narendra Modi and the NDA government for successfully completing 3 years. I am extremely glad that things in India are much better in 3 years than the 3 months of the newly elected US government. Even the staunchest opposition to Narendra Modi and the current government will agree that his ability to connect with the masses is strong and effective. The working of the government is a miracle at best and a very well run marketing machine at the worst. This is where closer analysis need to be done. This government so far has much lesser serious scams, th... Read More

Decoding Narendra Modi 2.0

Decoding Narendra Modi 2.0

He must be the most unique personality of the post independent India. Nobody has gained as much popularity during this time, much bigger than Anna and AK, perhaps bigger than JP Narayan, perhaps as big as Indira Gandhi. He has become the symbol of non-corrupt, developing Indian, a true statesman. Even his biggest critics can't take this away from him. The only true statesman of significance I can think of in the last 20 years. Anna may be in the list but was very short-lived & hence insignificant. But the confounding question is: Who is he and where is he headed? To answer this quest... Read More

Decoding Demonetization: The Balanced View

Decoding Demonetization: The Balanced View

In the last blog I talked about how demonetization looks like a TRUE socialist movement or policy created in independent India. The last 3 weeks has indeed been a rollercoaster ride for all of us. As politicians, activists, common people discussed, debated, criticized and accepted the move, memes, conspiracy theories and obnoxious WhatsApp messages and Facebook statuses spread like wildfire. Even today the nation stands polarized and the good, bad and ugly about the move has rented our peace of mind. After much conversation, coffee and analysis, my point of view now has some fineprints*.... Read More

Anti-Corruption Crusade – What Does It Mean?

Anti-Corruption Crusade – What Does It Mean?

Perhaps the biggest change in India since I have been born has been what we have seen in the last 4 days. It’s not the change that amazes me… It’s the ferocity with which it has happened. For years and decades, cynics like me have been calling for an almost dictatorship like rule in India to cause major changes. This change seems exactly like that. This is perhaps the most secular change that we have ever seen in this country. There is no exception for the rich or the poor, for Hindu or Muslim, for Brahmin or Dalit. There seems to be a clear focus in the government to not give a ba... Read More

Lets Blow the Trumpet!

Lets Blow the Trumpet!

Its been an amazing last 36 hours. The world has changed more in the last 36 hours than it does over decades. 9/11 and 11/9 are 2 dates that the world will remember for a very very long time to come. If you are Indian, its even more special for you. More on that in a separate discussion. I don't want to debate on whether Trump is the right guy or wrong. But its representational for sure. Lets look at emerging political themes we have in 2016 globally and will continue to see over the next 10 years: Majority is the new minority: Minorities have governed politics for the last 50 year...

Independence – Its not so great!

Independence –  Its not so great!

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

My Experiments With Entrepreneurship

My Experiments With Entrepreneurship

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
