In Rajiv Ji’s Memory

We lost Rajiv Ji on 10th May. His body lost the battle with Covid. I had the pleasure of working with Rajiv Ji for over 9 years. He joined us in 2012 when we were tired of the part-time accountant. He came from Dialnet – a company that then was struggling to meet the payroll.…

Taking Long Positions

Amazon is a fascinating organization. I love this particular quote by Bezos. “I very frequently get the question: ‘What’s going to change in the next 10 years?’ And that is a very interesting question; it’s a very common one. I almost never get the question: ‘What’s not going to change in the next 10 years?’…

Isn’t this already out there? Why Repeat at all?

A question looms on every writer just before they are ready to type the first letter. “What I am about to publish on the internet has been said over and over again. Why should I contribute? What I am saying is barely original? Will this even make a difference? Why is my perspective even important?”…

Making Deposits in the bank

I wrote about compounding a few months back. For compounding to really happen, it needs 3 simple things – Discipline – Discipline of being at it. Iterating, learning as you go along with not breaking the rhythm. Patience – Keeping faith that over long period of time – system thinking works. Perseverance – For those…

Valuing Family and Friends

I worked my ass off in my 20s. Once I was out of college, which is 2011, I ignored my family. And I barely managed to spend time with friends – the one’s that I stayed with. The 20s is when you get to work really hard. I remember that I was operational for 16-18…

4 Books At A Time – On Audible, Kindle, and Paperbacks

I am an impulsive book buyer. I would buy a book because someone I trust referred to in a tweet. Thanks for the audible experiment that I completed a few months back, I now get the same book in all three formats. Paperback ( or hardcover, whichever is cheaper), Kindle edition, and an audible. The…

Handling Contradictions

I have never been a fan of the league games. On the other hand, I have always enjoyed watching sports events where countries compete with one another. It’s very simple to align your loyalty with one player of our country. And the fact that the player won’t change the country is comforting in its own…

Compounding

Compounding – For everything  The concept of simple interest was first taught to me in 6th standard. I was 12 years old then. Compounding is best understood as a mathematical formula, which is probably the only reason why it is taught in Maths. And that’s how I had always thought about it until 2013. In…

Growing up in Middle Class, Spontaneity and Sanity

Keeping the spontaneity  Growing up in a middle class family taught me several lessons. The ones that has stuck with me for the longest was – “Spontaneity is our biggest enemy“. When I look back at my childhood – almost nothing was spontaneous. I remember, when I was in Class 6th, there was a small…

Building the perfect feedback loop

On 1st June, my mom got diagnosed with Jaundice. That day, I packed my bags and got back to Jaipur, my hometown. I have been here ever since. As my mom recovered, my wife went to her parents and my Mom took full control of the kitchen with little help me from me and dad.…
