I am shameless. But, that’s okay!

I have friends who often tell me that I am shameless. Reason? Well, according to them, I make a statement or have an opinion about something and later will stand different to what I said. I don’t deny. I’ve done that a couple of times. Example? I always hated the idea of buying expensive footwear. The most expensive pair of shoes I’ve got since last year was for Rs.1099. When one of my friends told me that they had bought a new pair of shoes for Rs.2500, I said “buying expensive shoes is a waste of money.” But, things became…

Smart Age: How new age social media content makes your brain dumb?

The age of smartphones has transformed the distribution of content and media across the internet. People no longer are interested in reading lengthier passages, and are obsessed with images and videos more than any form of media. If you want your audience to read something important, type that, convert it into an image, and post it online. That’s how people’s mind work these days. How have we arrived to this state of being obsessed with small snippets of text and images? Before the widespread use of technology, the only source of information we had was books. Searching something in a…

Truth I came to know when I set up my matrimonial profile

Women’s day wishes. Today, I read a blog post written by a friend and fellow blogger, bragadeesh, who spoke about today’s marriage market, especially what’s happening with respect to matrimonial sites, which made me want to write something about what I observed when I set up my profile a couple of months back. (Yeah! You heard it right!) Until his mid-twenties, a guy struggles his way into the job market, which is cruel, highly-demanding, and constantly changing based on god knows what! Soon after he settles into a job, which he doesn’t know, is insecure compared to how it was…

Making choices is like breaking a cookie

Life is all about making choices. Sometimes we make good choices and sometimes bad choices. Every choice we make has a definite impact on our lives. It’s like breaking a cookie into two halves. Sometimes you get two exact halves; sometimes you get multiple pieces in your hand. That’s not the right example to give. But I can’t think of anything else now. May be my brain became idle as I took some time off my blog. Some of you might ask me, how do I make the right choice? My answer would be evaluating the pros and cons of…

Woody Allen on “Living your Life backwards”

This is not going to be a lengthy post. It’s going to be precise and right up to the point. Recently i came across an interesting message on whatsapp. The message was quoting the words of famous hollywood movie director Woody Allen. It tells how wonderful life could be if we live it backwards. I would like to type out the exact message rather than talking about it. “In my next life I want to live my life backwards. You start out dead and get that out of the way. Then you wake up in an old people’s home and…

The power of not thinking too much!

Its been a while since i updated my blog. I was busy with NaNowrimo – The national novel writing month that is organized every year in the month of november. I enrolled myself before four years and was able to do it only this time. I started writing a crime thriller titled “The Sanguine terminal”. I wrote 13000 words so far and I have a long way to go. Let’s see what happens. If all goes well according to the plan, then you will be reading “Sanguine Terminal” by 2014. Recently I’ve been reading about Chris Guillebeau’s “The 100$ startup”…

What it’s like to not feel like writing ?

It happens to me a lot. I used to be very eager about writing something fantastic. Something inside me would tell that it has something for me to write about. I will look all excited from the moment i get out of my bed. I could see a hazy image of the concept inside my head which would refuse to disclose itself to me. I will try to figure it out on my way to the office, but it wont help. I used to go and sit in front of the computer and open the word processor and the hazy…

How to Manage yourself if you are a creatively enthusiastic person

“Creativity is a natural extension of our enthusiasm” –  Earl Nightingale The word “creative enthusiasm” might sound new to you. If people who are googling about it, I bet you will find minimal results which are completely irrelevant to what we are talking here. Let us straight away get into what is creative enthusiasm. Enthusiasm is something that drives us to do a lot of things. It is an underlying power of motivation that resides in our conscious and subconscious mind and drives us to achieve whatever we desire. In a way, enthusiasm is a double edged sword, if you’re goals…

Being Diplomatic is not a crime

I got a lot of criticism during my college for being diplomatic and manipulative with people. But i don’t consider those both as separate terms. According to the dictionary, diplomatic is having or showing an ability to deal with people in a sensitive and effective way. A lot of people hated me for being diplomatic. They thought i am doing something terrible by showing diplomacy during the time of a crisis. But that is not true. Being diplomatic is a good thing. When a delicate situation comes wherein two people are fighting and you are a mutual friend of both.…
