S.W.O.T. Analysis

Having been a student of management, this term was thrown around a lot. Frankly, it is still thrown around like pennies from Warren Buffet's pocket. But you care to conduct it when in on the crossroads. Having been at an all-time professional LOW for a while now, I finally gained some strength from somewhere to pick up... Continue Reading →

Mating with Marijuana

  Hash, Cannabis, Pot, charas, Ganja, Bhaang, Dope, Grass or Marijuana; I have flirted with the idea of having them all through my life. At 35, I had had given a 'shot' to all sins except this one (tried bhaang in college holi, but very mild and almost non-existent when compared to beer that followed)...... Continue Reading →

2019 Goals and Happiness

It is time to review the year, and the life too! I have been ambitious like an I-banker; but lately have learnt the calming effect of minimalism like a monk. Currently I am somewhere in between. It is but a fact that I will sway towards the latter (like all ageing people do), so I... Continue Reading →

10 things I would do if I had more time?

We all suffer from it, don't we? We all are pressed on time — the most valuable resource we’ve ever had. Sometimes I wish the scenario in the movie In-Time was for real… Anyway there is always “time” to sit back, relax, maybe pop open a can of beer and deliberate — what if i had more free time?...

Life’s Simple Pleasures

Some say “There are no free lunches in life”, and maybe they are right too. I am forced to critique however, and remind them of an afternoon meal at a gurudwara, comprising of dal, sabzi and rice (pity if you havent had it ever..)   The point is — Best things in life often come for free.  ...

Can Money Buy Happiness?

I will start by sharing a little bit about myself, and how my 'buying' behaviour went by. A little self-loathing is always a good start at unmasking self to truth. "The more you make, the more you want, The more you have, the less it counts..." These lines have especially been true for myself. There... Continue Reading →
