Valuing beyond the hype

Started with I am writing this to share a train of thought that started when I read on the Economic Times about an Ozy Media executive impersonating a Google executive during a meeting with Goldman Sachs which had the potential to raise the media company US$40m. The article also talked about the figures shared byContinue reading “Valuing beyond the hype”

Not Okay

With the widespread hypocrisy and the silent misogyny, is it really okay? Are we thinking about the pending cases or the ones that are not even reported? NO.   Are we thinking about what we teach the next generation? Or about the different house rules, the unspoken ones, that we put up based on genderContinue reading “Not Okay”

On Education and Academia

Education, in the general sense, means the act of imposing or acquiring knowledge, and is a vital building block of society. Why, then, do we not give it enough importance? It may seem like we do with all the “study hard”, “get good grades”, etc., but I would like to disagree with this notion. EducationContinue reading “On Education and Academia”

On Trade Off

Simply put, “Trade Off” means “to exchange something for or with another”. The concept of trade off is a basic one and is one of the founding pillars in economics. You have to give something to get something, and I am writing this article from a similar point of view. This came to my mindContinue reading “On Trade Off”

On Being in the 0.0x

In a national level test, I secured a percentile of 99.9x, making me one of the top 0.0x. Here I am writing about how it was and sharing my views on improving in that area. How it felt? It felt good, really good. But somewhere inside, I thought it was not enough. I often say,Continue reading “On Being in the 0.0x”

On Operations, Management

“Where are you doing your internship?” “It’s ‘XYZ’.” “Cool! What specialisations are you opting for?” “I’ll be concentrating on Operations and Finance.” “So your job at ‘XYZ’ is mostly Finance? There’s not much for operations.” “No. It’s mostly Marketing.” “But why?” Going with specialisation first, there is not one specialisation per se, at least inContinue reading “On Operations, Management”

A Quest for Perfection

Perfection, how wonderful would it be for someone to achieve it! But it is one of the things that cannot be reached. It is like an epitome of desire placed at a distance. You crawl, walk, run towards it, but you can never reach it. With each step you take, you feel it; you feelContinue reading “A Quest for Perfection”

Love and Being in Love?

I recently read somewhere, “I loved him, but I was not in love with him,” on which a friend of mine said that it’s like “I ate food but the food didn’t go through my oesophagus.” Keeping genders and the fact that it was meant to be a light-hearted joke aside, my friend’s statement resemblesContinue reading “Love and Being in Love?”

Buying a Pen

I bought a pen after a long time. Last time I had bought four pieces of a model with a few re-fills. It took a few months for me to use them all up. I am writing more than before – as in exams, posts for the blog, and random stories and stuff, etc. ButContinue reading “Buying a Pen”
