Blood donation is a form of salvation

I am an avid blood donor. In my college too I had donated blood and got yummy refreshments in return. But the best part was that my contribution was literally saving someone’s life. To ensure I get updates regarding blood donation, I signed up to receive notifications from BloodConnect, a wonderful organization working towards addressing blood shortage in India. Today I again got an opportunity to donate to a blood cancer patient. A BloodConnect official gave me a ring and I promptly went to Safdarjung Hospital in Delhi for doing the same. The sight of a government hospital threw me

Never had an idea what the actual difference between them really is, till you actually ended up befriending a girl and started going out with her.

Porn and I

Long back I heard a quote written by the great Harivansh Rai Bachchan. He said “Mandir Masjid bair karaye, mel karaye Madhushala”. If only he lived in our times when pornography is no longer restricted to books, he would realise that boys unite much before they start drinking. As any other kid I was born curious. And then I got the answer to every secret of human life. THE GANG-BATE – 10th standard, Jamshedpur My parents had left for Kolkata and I was supposed to be alone for the weekend. Perfect time to invite friends for ….whatever. I called 2 of my very

Shocking: How Lifestyle Store Cheats Consumers

During the weekend I was at the lifestyle store to buy some apparels and footwear. The sale is on and we have always thought this to be a good time to buy stuff from the brand outlet. After having bought some shirts, a shoe and some other regular stuff, I punched out a bill amount of Rs. 5162 and walked out.   The story began from here. Upon walking out, I noticed that the store had overcharged me by Rs. 1 for something called lifetrust. I would not have bothered but an overcharge without asking made me suspicious. On going

#5. INVESTOR PITCHING & SOME CONCENTRATED THINKING :)

  With our little start up getting more real and serious everyday, we figured we needed the real funds to start coming in. A series of investor meetings started lining up – each one with a different outcome. Some great feedback, some good and some just plain “why are you guys wasting your time with this ?” Yes , some of the feedback did hurt but ‘just keep moving’ became our constant thought and action. We all really got a pretty hard training in multi tasking and everyone started learning all the aspects of our company so buffering for each

A Quick Look at Employee Retention Strategy

  One of the greatest challenges faced by today’s employers is not only tapping the appropriate talent but also engaging and retaining employees in the long run. Remember that a comprehensive people strategy is not comprehensive enough if it does not include a proven employee retention strategy. While the above strategy may sound logical, it is a fact that most small companies tend to overlook this critical component—that is employee retention. While most companies feel that a handsome salary, incentives and golden handcuffs are enough to retain employees, it is actually far deeper than that where the human psyche comes

Beginning of the Grind and the Festive Season Combined

Brainstorming while experimenting different cocktails and dreams (yes, I still love Tom Cruise) at various venues was what our new family did for the next 3 months. We had a new excuse to go OUWT even more now – it was all to figure out exactly what kind of product we wanted to create. With a fair share of procrastination and some pretty fun ideas, we saw ourselves getting serious about new work quite naturally. (or so we thought !) Balancing our day jobs and drinking almost every night for work did become a bit of task after a bit
