We, humans, are like onions, made of numerous layers. Most of us don’t have time to peel and peek into each layer.

We are part of an instant world for finding love, sex, or grocery. No one has time or patience.

We are all running and aiming for a perfect life, partnership, or work without waiting, observing, or peeling off all the layers.


Khoye hue hai hum apni ek aise zahan me ki khud me hai magan. Ek zindgi aise bana li hai ki bass khud mae he subkuch hai.

Zindgi ka har waqt har pal khud mae he to jina hota hai. Kyun ho zate hai hum chakachaundh bhare duniya kae.

Kaise bhul zate hai hum khud ko, kyun ho zate hai hum gulam khud ko chor ke is duniya kae.


As a founder, you are the best to judge what and how you want and build.

Are you in a short game or the long game?
The dynamics of the organization and journey both depend on this.
Also, neither is right or wrong.

It will also set up the culture for years to come.

Have a game plan and work accordingly.

Orphan founders

Many young-age founders think raising early on from a tier 1 fund guarantees success against others. On the contrary, taking an early cheque from a tier 1 fund limits your option. 

Some of the things that will happen: 

  1. Your champion will leave the fund. You will become an orphan.
  2. Not enough growth. You will be left to die slowly.
  3. Tier 1 fund will not lead and throw a mixed signal to other incoming investors.

What can founders do?

  1. Focus on fundamentals and not get carried away by who is on their CAP Table. 
  2. Focus on the team and building and delighting customers.
  3. Avoiding noise, PR, and self-promotion. 


We don’t have to worry about being judged.
We are not living in an ideal world.
We can not satisfy everyone.

We have to focus on our progress, getting better every single day.

We are not hurting others or being mean to the rest.
What is there to worry about?

How does it matter what others think about us?


We are living in a creator economy.
Everyone is an influencer and creator in itself.
You don’t have to be a rich kid from the metro to sell education on Youtube or lipstick on Instagram.
The flip side is the rise of pseudoscience and fake influencer marketing.

We are swimming between numerous content without quality checks and authenticity.

Is it good or bad?
Is it an equalizer for humanity?

I have no clue, but I feel we will die deep into the curation mess. Otherwise, a kid seeing a YouTube video will become averse to relationships or watch the wrong video on Newton’s law of motion will fight in school.


Twitter is full of VCs advising how founders should conserve cash or keep a healthy runway and whatnot.

Some are talking about growth with sustainable burn (not sure “WTF” it is?)

Firings and layoffs are all over the media.
A few founders even spoke about investors who are arm twisting them and re-negotiating on term sheets.
In short, things look all gloomy.

As a founder, it’s time to realize when to call it to quit or have faith in yourself and your team.
Also, time like this will test all relationships, be it personal or professional.
Not everyone likes to be part of a shrinking ship.

As a founder, be it good or bad times, it is your journey: you are the master of your ship.
Destiny is in your hand.
Take all the decisions wisely with clarity, not under emotions.


Many people I know have stayed alone, built things, and enjoyed the solitude. It goes against our societal definition of having company.

We are all different and live by our likings. Some like socializing, and some don’t. Some enjoy their solitude while others company of friends.

Our living should be what makes us comfortable.


We all have some triggers due to our past experiences. It can make us vulnerable or wise.

Our current actions are a result of our past experiences. Be very wise when you are behaving or responding to a scenario. It should not be because of triggers but rationality.

Knowing about our triggers can keep us and others around sane.


We are living in a divided world. We have divided: be it caste, religion, ethnicity, etc.

At the same time, we call ourselves free and take the liberty to hurt others. We should draw a line that ensures we are free and at the same time not hurting others?

What is freedom essentially if there are restrictions? Who is accountable for misusing freedom by hurting the sentiments of others?
