We are now conditioned to the word ‘cost’


We are now conditioned to the world ‘cost’. It was recession which hastened us to think of ‘cost’, otherwise, I am sure, none of us ever have considered cost as prime strategy. During the recent downturn, most of the companies improved or sustained their relative bottom lines with the help of cost cutting measures. AccordingContinue reading “We are now conditioned to the word ‘cost’”

Could fulfillment ever be felt as deeply as loss?


All inherited moral laws taught me that being selfish is the least desired thing. But when I grew up, I learned that this is the most desired option, your mind recognizes when it comes to relative success. Relative success is a success in comparison with some other success referred as benchmark. That is how weContinue reading “Could fulfillment ever be felt as deeply as loss?”

When to kill a product?


Usually, when a product manager takes a decision to kill a product, service or a segment we assume that a proper analysis must be in place on financial, organizational and strategic factors. This means such products are at the end or at least towards the end of their life cycle. In other words the keyContinue reading “When to kill a product?”

Give me facts, I need reasons to believe


We need reasons to accept a view point and logic to change our own. ‘Reasons’ are typically introduced as ‘facts that count in favor’ of an action or attitude* (from Philosophy, et cetera by Richard). However, reason to believe does not mean that the ‘reason’ is definitely a ‘fact’. Last few weeks were full ofContinue reading “Give me facts, I need reasons to believe”

More will always be less


The article in today’s cosmic uplink section of economic times argued the type of goal. And I, in agreement with the post, infer that most of us have more of self centric goals than even a decimal of self realization goal. The phenomenon of self realization evades fear of failure and sense of comparison toContinue reading “More will always be less”

Some insights on routine life


Tea, toast and today’s news, and you get a synopsis of changing world. I always bothered; the daily appearing changes are actually resulting from small changes every day. In past 10 years I’ve witness a lot of change in me and in my surroundings. I believe this will hold true for most of us. IContinue reading “Some insights on routine life”

Journal; Journal


Recently, while I was going through a blog post of Pritish Nandi;  “Letters, tweets, one paisa sms” , I got nostalgic on old memories of letters and emails written in patience with full of emotions. Then I recall my habit or writing diary almost on a daily basis. I carried this habit along my journey till now but couldContinue reading “Journal; Journal”

Journal; Car Music


Now a days, for last 3 -4 months, I get a chance to enjoy old Hindi song while travelling in car with Patwardhan sir, for office or from office. He’s got a good taste of old Hindi songs especially of around seventies. I am influenced by his passion on not to miss a chance of music concerts in andContinue reading “Journal; Car Music”

Which category of love you are in?


In my previous two posts Unconditional Love and Beauty of Full Moon, I’d discussed two aspects of love; one, its unconditional which does not seek anything in return  like mother nature and two, you need to be crazy to be in real love like Kalidas’ passionate affection for Ratnavali. Think of a painter who is mixing variousContinue reading “Which category of love you are in?”
