I am still unprepared for the world

I was unprepared for the elephant pineapple incident. It didn’t factor in, even in my wildest imagination. Just did not. I moved into a new place this week. I was unprepared for the kindness of strangers. Random shop keepers going out of their way to make tea for me. Society guards being helpful, in spite…

The top 5 mistakes I made in my first year as an entrepreneur

I stopped prioritising my health. Prior to being my own boss, I worked at an MNC. Five days a week, I worked out with crazy dedication. I invested in the right proteins, an appropriate gym and the right trainer. For me it wasn’t an expense, it was an investment. The first year of being out…

Can someone really change?

When I look back, say 10 years, I don’t think I was a nice person. I was zero on empathy, didn’t believe in feeling too much or anything at all. I was in a relationship of convenience, or maybe in multiple relationships of convenience. A lot of what I let myself feel was “transactional”. I…
