The girls have some connection with their hair. Some grow them long, whereas others keep it short. As a child, I have always kept my hair short because I hated plait. Short hair means you can keep it open forever. Once I came to college, I started growing my hair, but till medium long as I felt that long hair is big maintenance. For the last 23 years, I craved for long hair. Wanted to see how I will look if I grow my hair. Being an experimental personality, I crave for change and never ever stick to one thing for a long time. 

So I started growing my hair, cutting my hair and growing again till I reach a length beyond which my hair never grew. It wasn't even that long still for me that was the longest and I crave for more long one. It never happened. I had thin hair and after growing it became thinner. I had coloured my hair so the tips were of faded color. Though I had a decent length, I never had healthy hair. Sometime it looked good, sometimes it felt dried out. The most commo…

Book Review: Maximum City

Image
Mumbai, a city which never sleeps, a city of dreams, a city of lights and fast life. Mumbai, earlier called Bombay, has many names. This city has attracted people from all parts of India to come and change their life. But does their life improved from that of in the village or they created a different world of their own. Being born and bought up in Mumbai, never thought how the life will be for people who come from villages or other part of India. Also the two categories of people, lower and middle class, whose life has many ups and down, middle class people (like me) don't know what it is like to be in their shoes. 
For me, Mumbai was a place where I grew up, many things in the city were normal to me. People who grew up in other cities, saw a different side of Mumbai and came here to chase their dreams. From 1990's till 2000, Mumbai as a city has experience best and worst, from Bomb blast to the emergence of don, from the rise of Marathi community to fight between Hindu and M…

Book Review: Fix Your Problems - The Tenali Raman Way

Image
When I was teenager, we used to see this show based on Tenali Raman. Before the show started, I already knew many of his stories and seeing cartoon of same was indeed reminiscing childhood days. Now in adulthood, these memories fade away and you end up remembering stories of soap opera and comic character converts into superhero movies. Tenali Raman stories are very witty and smart, but you lose touch with the content and crux of character. 
Reading book like 'Fix Your Problems - The Tenali Raman Way' by Vishal Goyal in adulthood is not just an exercise to remember the past or cherish those movement' but also finding out solutions to our problems. In many ways, these small stories give us hint of how to find our way when we are faced difficult situation. During the period of reading endless heavy books with too much information and emphasis on how to live your life, Fix Your Problems - The Tenali Raman Way was a fresh book and reminder of how I used to love reading book wh…

Reach for the star or adjust in the sky?

As I entered professional life, I started aiming for the universe. It is said that aim for the stars, maybe you will end up being in the sky. But when we start working, we not just aim for the stars, but we try and reach sun, the star which is furthest from earth. There is no question that we all want to be successful, we all want big salary package or we all want to be head of department or company. We want something which can define our professional life. No one will say that I am happy being manager, or happy working under CEO. To have this hunger, there is nothing wrong in it but is it completely right also?
We all don’t reach the top; if that was the case then everyone would be CEO or Head of department. Only few reaches there, few hang in the middle and few leave it in the hands of god. When I started my career, I wanted to be in another industry and not in the industry I was working. When I got another job, it was an industry I never planned to go in. after another switch I got …

Don’t hold the dream tight, just chase it!

When I was child I dreamt of being Airhostess.  When I was in college, I dreamt of being Fashion Designer. When I did my post graduation, I dreamt of being Brand Manager. Almost 4 year after my post graduation and I am jobless sitting at home thinking, ‘What was wrong with my dream that it never got fulfilled?’
Successful people who have made big in their respective stream say that ‘they always dreamt of this and now their dream is turned into reality’. Hardly anyone said that it is by chance that they end up with this or they thought of doing this and now their dream is true. So what is the deal? Was it their dream and they chased it to be true? Or was it is just by chance they tried and they got lucky?
Very vague dream everyone have in life is to earn money, lot of it. Well! It is not a dream, it is a want. So if this is want then what is the dream? Dream is a cherished desire, a desire to be something you are not currently. So earning money is not dream. Dream can be to be greatest…
