How do we know what our limits are? Why do we have to add a limit on ourselves? Society defines what we or we cannot: class, race, age, sex, and culture all have their limitations. The ones who looked beyond these made their dream come true. Very few of them were the reason for the mass change with their advocacy, writing, politics, or technological contributions.

We are what we think. Our thoughts define us. Our limitations or limitlessness depends on how we see our world.


There is a fire within us, the fire to do something. Most of the time, it comes when we are ignorant and uncorrupted by societal rules. Ask a young kid what he wants to become growing up, and they will have some answers. In most times, they will not remember as they age. It is because they have become part of the system which decides who they should become. There could be multiple factors behind its finances.

A few of us went against all odds, kept the fire within, and changed the world.


I know this sounds philosophical, but karma works in mysterious ways. We live in the era of capitalism, where the sermon has become: “What’s in it for me?” Everything starts with wealth and ends with “I”; we as a universe have no place.

But what are we seeking in the end? After all the wealth, if you have to buy friends and loved ones with it?

Our little act of randomness works in our favor in mysterious ways. So help others.


I was listening to and reading about BRICS+6. It feels like another divide against the US. Who will benefit from it?

In the fight to become a superpower, countries are fighting. It is dividing the world more. As a result, ordinary people in these countries will suffer more.

The fight between multiple blocks and countries is causing war and more hunger.

Our forefathers wanted a free, better world in prosperity. We are living in a debt-ridden, stressed world.


It’s been less than 24 hours in Tokyo. 

I am in love with the city. 

I have a few friends via open source connection. 

Along with it, I had a few meetings. 

Despite all the modernization and capitalist ethos, Japanese tradition still values people-to-people relationships. I am here for work and vacation.

Things I loved: 

  1. Local public transportĀ 
  2. Kind and hospitable peopleĀ 
  3. Food
  4. Cleanliness
  5. Civic senseĀ 


Advantages of being an underdog is that no one gives fuck about you. It helps you to lead a life in your own way. Living life without anyone watching or constantly monitoring is bliss. It means you are not under any scrutiny or FOMO.

As a result, you become more fearless and take all the decisions out of the box. In short, you are not scared of doing the unthinkable.

Society hates underdogs because most form herds, and underdogs don’t have any option, which goes with the majority.

In most instances, the world has come to a new life with the effort of underdogs. Because they survived and thrived where more humans would give up.


Marketers, Movie makers, and fiction writers: have sold us, love, the feeling of being with someone, and change in our world.
Everything in our life revolves around love: from OTT to billboard signs.
If you are not in love, you have committed some sin or are in fear of missing out.

Mostly it has become a trophy to showcase. We, humans, were hunter-gatherers, and that part of the brain still seeks ownership of a counterpart.

Our time has changed. We have progressed, but even then seems like love is some game, and we are chasing it.

A few ask for its real meaning, and almost none for its need. A few seek companionship, togetherness, trust, and becoming better in the painful journey of life.


I celebrated my birthday yesterday, and a good time went into self-evaluation on the positive side of life. Most attribute their grit, hard work, or whatnot to their success. I attribute my existence here to the people around me. I can cry over that I got into entrepreneurship in my 30s, unlike the GenZ, who are born with the bent.

Other than people and their teachings, it was their absolute trust in me. Starting Taghash, I got into reading books, mostly autobiographies, and I also limited my alcohol intake. I took health as wealth seriously.

Also, over the journey found my co-founder and many other friends and mentors who were/are beside me: listening, nodding, and participating in my ideas. A few I keep calling and talking for hours and hours, exchanging ideas.

I am 38th year of my life, It feels like childhood, and I am still out there with the same energy, innocence, and curiosity. I am waiting to see the world and what the future has.


People write books when they become famous or when they age. In my case, the learning has been simple. We live and die with PEOPLE around us.

We need the company of PEOPLE who value us and make us better every moment. At the same time, integrity and trust are the virtues which keep relationships intact.

Seek positive PEOPLE in life. You will die peacefully.


I was talking to Karthik and got introduced to Zubin Mehta, a conductor. The next few hours were all watching and listening to his work. It was incredible. I have added one such video below.

Reading more about Zubin and Orchestra made me compare it with startup life. We are all part of an (Orchestra) as startup. Our leaders are conductor, the success of performance depands on the team and process.

It comes down to the culture, process and fuctions which conductor has defined. It again rests on conductor building the team to guiding for a perfect masterpiece.

If you are a conductor, the Orchestra’s success depends on you. You are responsible.
