Does it really hold relevance?
Who are the stars which influence a startup?

The 9 + 2 combination (A perfect team)
All can be diversified fields.. (Similar to planets)
Each of them can have their own armies (Similar to satellites)
Each of them can be governed by the numerous stars (Nakshatra).. the eco partners..
and all moving round the sun which invests its energy on you…
If we observe the entire universe is revolving round some purpose, some object, some entity..
sometimes we are where we are but the world is revolving round us.
So do we need to get affected by success or failure of darkness and light?
Absolutely no… as whenever there will be moments of darkness, there will be light too be seen soon..

Startups need to understand the influences of all actors in the startup eco system and acknowledge their presence for right balance of mind and success..
Being grounded is most important

He decides to check the number of families in that island.. hardly 300..

Strobe decides to visit the same as it is in remote pacific ocean…

Lost in Crowd?

Sarah is walking in one of the busiest roads in NY.. and as she waits for light to turn to ‘Walk signal’. She finds at least 100 folks standing all around her.. waiting to walk across road..

A happy go lucky soul working in largest venture capital house.. she realizes that every day, there are millions in world trying to be different,. unique, impress investors to seek funds with a dream that they will make it big.. Whole quest to be unique..

Soon she finds the rush pushing all around her and she too moves to catch a Subway Train and while sitting in a crowded evening train, she observes folks standing, few gazing tiredly, few prancing with their mobile phone..

Sarah retrospects ‘Is she lost in crowd? Why she didn’t attempt to stand out and again attempt to get funded even when she was in funding house’

She reaches home.. and her drunk husband Philip greats her..

Philip ‘Dear one.. So tired you look. I made for you the food and you can now just take rest .. I need to step out as usual’

Sarah ‘When will you stop drinking and begin working?’

Philip ‘You are there for me dear.. Ok have to step out’

Sarah eats her food and retrospects ‘At least he makes food for me.. Just look at positives.. And why I stick on to him is only because he is so faithful to me… ‘

Sarah realizes that she needs minimum US$3000 for her and Philip’s survival in NJ city..

Sarah ‘Do these entrepreneurs really don’t wish a safe earning.. Are they mentally prepared for ups and downs of life.. Why I cannot dare to do it? Is it because of my husband or my own self esteem which could be low’

Next day she again is in crowded train and looks at the train driver.. The driver is smilingly getting into engine coach to drive all..

Sarah ‘Sometimes we need to get used to routine just because no option exist.. May be an entrepreneur doesn’t like the idea of routine, hence begins and closes company or always wishes to seek an exit’

She reaches office and again gets back to work

Journey of Life

Journey of Life, sometimes Ooh, sometimes Aah

Searching for Grass in the Dark Forests

Sometimes Green, Sometimes Grey

The hurdles keep coming, sometimes Aah, sometimes Oh

Searching for solutions in the grey areas

Journey of Life, sometimes Hungry, sometimes Full

Searching for goal in the grey areas

Sometimes vague, sometimes clear

Journey of life, sometimes alone, sometimes company

Searching for Light in the darkness

Sometimes dim, Sometimes enlightened

Journey of life, sometimes heart full, sometimes heartless

Searching for love in the soul

Sometimes unseen, sometimes felt
