It was the clash of the titans! When we took IITians Vs the Viveka boys!
We were recently sponsoring few workshops in IIT and Vivekananda on entrepreneurship- it was a great vision for both colleges, students select their lives than jobs and make the most of life.
I tried to do justice in both the programs, Here how it looked, IIT guys were well prepared, well dressed and had all kinds of gadgets and data to prove their story- some of them wanted to change medical industry, some of them talked about machine humans.
On the other side, The Viveka boys were in simple dresses and nothing pompous. Few of them talked about businesses but many of them were focused on milk and farming- self employment than entrepreneurship.
I tried to do justice, but to be honest, both sides had values- innocence, egoless state, obedience and even happiness. Genuine goodness was the key to success of both the schools despite the high fee or tall statures.
I had to agree, I just gave away t-shirts and certificate, but I’m proud of the next generation. People who really want to make a difference despite their humble lifestyle or parent’s arrogance.
I wish you guys well- no matter which school or college- keep learning and improving, because life will give you the best no matter what!
It was a crazy day- I could hardly sleep. I was extremely excited– we were visiting IIT for a promo event for one of my clients. So it was day 2 and I was extremely out of sorts- I gathered courage and went to the college in my car- I got all the merchandise of sponsorship etc to pep up the students during the show. I had a small neck twitch and it was killing me all week.
I parked my car in the campus; by the way, the campus was an amazing place with beautiful trees and serene peace. Then, suddenly when I got out of the car- it locked itself, the keys where inside and event was going to get over in an hour. The monkeys in the campus howled from the trees and I was stuck. I ran to see- if someone was around to help, apart from the monkeys, few students walking around. I called them over and explained the situation, they were very helpful- despite their reputation, IIT students are reputed for best minds.
Few laborers also joined the Endeavour. They tried with all means possible, banging the door- using thread, pen and nothing worked. I looked at monkeys in disgust, then suddenly the idea hit me- I need a bigger thread or scale- the watchman liked my idea and ran to the staff room nearby to request it, yes they had big thread and scale. When I came back, a bunch of students were trying to open the car with all ideas possible. I was impressed, they were very helpful. Then suddenly, the watchman shouted, yes, its working- I ran to the other side of the door and saw the lock had moved- we were able to make the mountain move- yes finally door sprung open, the scale did the trick, just sliding it in and jerking it- it moved the lock. The students sighed relief. The watchman got one of the t-shirts and was happy, the merchandise and sponsorship material, poster, banner were all ready to be given to students- the event was a roaring success Thank you students, Thank you IIT – no matter how intelligent they were, the students knew to help and with patience and persistence, we achieved it. Wallah! Thank you for reading
From my recent workshop at a Chennai College…..
The word entrepreneurship is used in concurrence with creation. We need to create from our hands and mind/heart. Either jobs, children, family, work, money etc. The tool given to us is time- with time and space we can create jobs in this world. This is called entrepreneurship.
The ship where we enterprise for more is the idea of this domain. The ship needs people, power and horse power, tools to move. When it moves, the horse power helps us reach places, that’s the same for any business – either a guy on the street fixing scooter or the biggest business running tv or mobile. The most important thing is desire followed enthusiasm, persistance and we of course the need for time, money and space.
Social Entrepreneurs are creators of networks and spaces- online and local. With socializing , it is clear we can create a domain to interact for fun, work and more. In most cases, the means is business and money. Growth and development.
Go out and rule the world- enterprise even if you would like to fix things or create wealth online, just make sure to enjoy and learn.
Keep it real! Keep it enterprising 🙂
We need to make sure to lead our way to success- it needs to be all inclusive, once we move forward taking the interest of all stakeholders- the mutual growth and long term success will be high.
We need to ensure we are always not creating harm in the way of our stakeholders and even our competition some times. Healthy competition is the key.
Once we are able to discuss our success and growth with our selves- we need to show we lead with care- the divide and rule and lead/bleed way of life- can only bring short term and non mutual growth which is mostly short lived.
I wish you well in your endeavor – Inclusieve and careful leading brings happiness and success to all!
Lead away! With care 🙂

It was a obvious dream to be on stage, my friend called me in and next stop was IAMAI. Digital Summit are Indian version of world mobile congress- display of technology by top notch companies, CEOs and entrepreneurs. I caught the earliest flight and checked in to catch all the action. And when the moment arrived, we made the pitch for Akyumen Digital Phones, first time in India- though I’m camera and stage shy, I must admit, the audience was nice on me. Do order your version of this phone now. Read more on the link below by one of the most prominent techno blog site.

The best thing India needs is a projector, but how could I show the presentation to a bunch of rural village kids or to my office staff in middle of the rajasthan desert. I don’t know! I did not have a budget or space for a projector in the room! And next thing you know, enters Mr.Saied.
Mr.Saied is the inventor of the phone inclusive of a Tablet also inclusive of A PROJECTOR!!! Yes, mobile projector, it is just unbelievably fantastic! So, you just click the projector button and next thing you know, it becomes a high tech screen to showcase your work, presentations, video etc at great resolutions!

Cricket here and now
We are very close to the t-20 world cup and all Cricketers are gearing up!
Being an Indian it’s like looking forward to IPL 2016, only at an inter-national level. The IPL is in Apr, 2016 but a month earlier- we have the T-20 World Cup kicking off in Nagpur, India.
The current disaster in Australia is meant to be forgotten, it’s been runs on board for everyone but no result in favor of India; making the captaincy of Dhoni under lot of pressure. Why would someone retire the longer format to stick with shorter format. You need to ask the man! Would Kohli, Rahane or Rohit Sharma be better without the most successful captain India has ever seen, only time will tell. In this case, few months!
We all can’t wait for March to April season of cricket, but for now I hope you are enjoying India’s doom in Australia. If you are an Englishman, South Africa will shy away from you! Broad has been at his best to take England to record victory. And, if you are a Kiwi, dwell in the run mela of Kane Williamson and Guptill, Pakistan have a lot of catching up to do.
Adios, Amigo until next time! Cover drive away!!! And don’t forget your copy of Happy Meter! Cricket Meter on the say! J
