HOW I FASTED FOR A DAY

So, married Indian ladies have a huge festival called “Karvachauth” that they celebrate it each year.   This year, it was my turn because I married in February this year.

THE BUSINESS OF SOCIAL MEDIA

  Last night I was watching the 10th Anniversary of Keeping Up with the Kardashians and it I wondered how fast 10 years went by. It was 2007, when I remember Facebook and Orkut ruled . The words like “Snap Me” were not even present! To come to think of it, our lives evolved and the millennials for sure are engulfed in technology and social media. Right now, I am scared to think (for a second) what all would have happened by 2027!   Lets take a trip down memory lane from 2007 to 2017 of launches of major social networks:…

When one pitches an idea, when one dreams, when one starts something, most successful people always look at the bigger picture. Often successful business people look at a situation from an “Eagle’s Eye.” That meaning, the bigger picture. Looking at the picture from afar. So let me explain this to you in the business sense.
