How could you?

I was accused of something I did not. Truly, I had no part of it. Because I wanted to be completely understood, I asked specific questions to see if what I think is the same what he thinks. I explained that it was a total misunderstanding. He did not believe a single word I was [...]

​Why is it hard to get news ?

With internet democratising the knowledge space, why is it I'm finding ever so hard to believe in news I get ? The world used to get joy from watching parody shows. It was not just laughter, but good education too on issues that mattered. The real news is now parody like.  First, most of the [...]

The other side of ratings

I was waiting for my ride on Uber when I saw on app that the driver had a 3.5 rating. Only 3.5 ? A sudden irritation crept inside me. What could this 3.5 number mean? Is he a reckless driver? Is he bad with using maps? is he mean? may be his car is in [...]

Asking questions and fear of failure

I find audiences very peculiar. They don’t ask questions after a session is over. When I go to a session, an event, a meeting or to a talk,  there’s a good reason why I am spending my time there. Otherwise I don’t go. So when I am there, I want to ask questions to clarify [...]

How can I help you ?

At events, especially after completing a talk, number of people who network with me is high. It's all good. But time is limited. At one instance there were 3 persons from different organisations around me. All want to talk about their work, but all want to leave soon as well, because it was already past [...]

No, people don't queue up for change in straight lines. It's messy. So instead of zooming in on trends, try to zoom out and watch behaviour changes of people. You don't [...]

Fake news is bigger than we think

This post I wrote gives a philosophy to face fake news. Yet it seems fake news is now beyond individual attempts to decipher. Take a look at video below. After watching this video, take a deep breath and reflect on the next news you see. It's a fake world out there. Be careful of what [...]

Why increasing minimum wage is good?

I have heard enough stories on how badly the workers on factories, warehouses and supermarkets are salaried. I questioned the ethics of it. I mean, giants like Amazon, Walmart and Apple are ripping the low income workers. Doesn't sound right. The stories are horrid. Here's a sensible 3 minutes video explanation from a Silicon Valley [...]

On those new year resolutions.

I had a peak in to my last year's resolutions. It's like a rude joke on my self by me. 🙂 Through painful analysis, I found out where I had gone wrong. It's a trend, and it sounds good. Everybody's doing it. I should catch up. 8 resolutions. Really ? Why I could not scheduled [...]
