The irony of our times ...

The irony of our times ...
  • Those who oppose crimes against themselves, inflict crimes on their own people 
  • Those who want peace within, advocate bombing the 'criminal' states 
  • Those who oppose 'repressive' regimes, side with them when the 'rebels' start bombing their countries 
  • Those who work for off-shoring IT businesses, condemn governments for allowing cheap Chinese imports 
  • 'Export' cloth manufacturers encourage laws restricting of foreign manufactured vehicles
  • Families who built houses with repatriation money castigate illegal immigrants from neighboring countries 
  • Those who worship most feverishly are also those who preach hatred
  • People conduct 'culture' festivals at the Bank of rivers damaging fragile ecosystems on the riverbed 
  • Those who find affirmation action 'unfair' to the majority cringe when the government taxes their savings 
  • Minorities always cite the law; majorities make the law! 
  • My opportunity is fair - if they trouble you, you are incapable of adapting to change 
  • My troubles are unfair because they result from injustice meted out by chosen few to the majority 
It is easy to get drowned in the cacophony of media - especially the very personalized Social Media - but it is too damn hard to think with a clear mind about right vs. wrong, courageous vs. tactical, hard-work vs. smart-shortcut; and the answers are often too damning in the short term! History however proves that in the long run, justice is delivered and truth prevails - as they say सत्यमेव जयते !!

How will travel industry transform post-Covid

Unlike philosophers, journalists and teenagers, the world of entrepreneurship does not permit the luxury of gazing into a crystal ball to predict the future. An entrepreneur’s world is instead made of MVPs (Minimum Viable Product), A/B Tests, launching products, features or services and gauging / measuring their reception in the market to arrive at verifiable truths which can drive the business forward. Which is why I have never written about my musings or hypothesis about travel industry – we usually either seek customer feedback or launch an MVPised version and gather market feedback. However, with Covid-19 travel bans across the globe, the industry is currently stuck – while a lot of industry reports and journalistic conjectures are out, there’s no definitive answer to the way forward. Besides there is no way to test your hypothesis since even the traveller does not know what they will do when skies open. So, I decided to don my blogger hat and take the luxury of crystal gazing

हिंदी दिवस के उपलक्ष्य में एक ट्वीटमाला

A thread on Hindi Diwas; for the last few months I have been influencing my daughter to learn Hindi by telling her greatness & elegance of Hindi हिंदी दिवस के उपलक्ष्य में एक ट्वीटमाला; पिछले कुछ माह से मैं अपनी बेटी को हिंदी की महत्ता और लालित्य के बारे में समझा रहा हूँ| She is in Grade 2 and just started learning the Hindi alphabet and grammar.  वह कक्षा २ में है और अभी हिंदी वर्णमाला और व्याकरण के पहले पाठ पढ़ रही है|  Yesterday, she asked me why I think Hindi is a great language. Context being India has so many languages and our mother tongue is Marathi.  कल उसने मुझे पूछा कि मैं हिंदी को एक महानतम भाषा क्यों मानता हूँ - जबकी भारत में इतनी सारी भाषाएँ हैं और हमारी मातृभाषा मराठी है|  My answer - No doubt Hindi is a rich language in terms of literature, vocabulary, variety and its script Devnagiri is very scientific in nature...  मेरा उत्तर था की यद्यपी हिंदी साहित्य, शब्दावली, विविधता से परिपूर्ण हैं और उसकी प्रमुख लिपी देवनागिरी वैज्ञानिक है, ...  ... But then these virtues des
