Running a startup is like sailing in a sea, your course depends on external factors like the tide and weather. One can strive to build an unsinkable ship. There is no perfect template for startup success. It requires much more than reading a book or taking advice from Twitter or a medium blog post.

While some people start the startup with a mission of changing the world or fixing a problem. Many have got their other incentives which can be getting rich and famous quickly, which is glamorized by the media.

Meeting a dozen friends over last week’s trip to Ahmedabad and Delhi showed me the importance of profitability. A lot of my friends are in traditional business and some have taken ancestral business. All they strive for is being profitable and floating comfortably in any weather or tide.
