Achievers of Excellence – Talk by Harsha Bhogle

January 20, 2010

A couple of days back, I was forwarded this link, most likely by pachi.

Its a talk by Harsha Bhogle at IIM-A, about life, his college, professional career, personal ideals beautifully analysed and presented. Highly inspirational. Lot to learn about life, career and excellence from this man.

A must-watch, though agreeably, its a bit long. Trust me, take time out and watch it within this week, you’ll love it.

What might religion look like, if it were invented today?

June 17, 2009

“If Email were to be invented today, what could it look like?”, this was the vision that started Google Wave. I hope you have all watched the Google Wave demo (if not, you certainly should). remarkable vision, true innovation, deservingly acclaimed by many.

Now, isn’t this a question we must ask ourselves more often? Get a new perspectives that we fail to, many a time..

I was wondering just how would religion be if it were invented today. Now, religion is a large part of our lives, I say this because a majority of the world’s population follow some known religion. There is speak of diversity being essential, and many religions also contain in their preachings that it is the only true true religion.

I do not have answer to this. I must think about it myself, too. You too think about it, and maybe pen it down.

so here’s what I though of, my 3 commandments –

  1. do and let do
  2. everyone is equal
  3. have patience o wise one


wow! the requirements have consequences that are far reaching. this can perhaps be a very good test of the ultimate knowledge and learnings of a person.
while doing your list, remember – your system has to work even if _everyone_ follows it. Religion is devised for the masses, estimate their capacities. (precisely for this reason, religion has to change with the changing masses)

I do urge you this time, to take a minute off and answer the question seriously. looking forward to knowing your thoughts.

The Tipping Point

February 10, 2009

Ah! Again, we come here. The impact of the first impression

Assume –

A person associated with a tribe starts a conversation with you and leaves a very bad impression.

The image of the whole tribe is affected by that individual. Is it right ?

To an extent yes, maybe no. But surely the image in your mind is right if the leader of the tribe witnesses it and ignores it/takes his associates’ side.

They may be right. You may be right.

But you are entitled to your opinion on them. And you can share it with your tribe.

Nothing wrong.
