Festival of Lights

Happy festival of lights

the light of logic and wisdom

the light of fairness and openness

the light of curiosity and transperancy

the light of humbleness and compassion

the light of love and clarity

be given in abundance to all

with loads of prosperity, wealth and happiness

with the light of endurance and affection

to make a human be healthy and smiling

for right reasons to spread and share

the abundance with all.

 

an ungifted gift

love is something which when given, is loved and when not given, is hated

or if given forcefully, still hated.

 

Joy ”Lisa.. I am gifting you a fund of US$10000 for your venture”

Lisa ”common.. no need from you.. please … I do not love you’

Joy ”common it is not for the same reason”

Lisa ”Where is Mike?”

Joy ”He is just going to be in NY anytime next week”

After a week

Lisa sees Mike giving a beautiful necklace to her best friend Jaquline

Lisa pulls Mike round the corner

Lisa ”Common.. not a single gift to me…”

Lisa plants a forceful kiss on Mike’s lips..

Mike ”Common.. I just do not love you.. stay away from me”

Lisa has drops of tears

Joy comes in…to the restaurent where the party is on

Joy hugs Lisa

Joy ”Lisa… seriously.. no expectations.. just get going and do something of your own”

Lisa hugs Joy and keeps sobbing.

 

 

love knocks

love can be a real lesson to someone who has never fallen in love ever..

Siya ‘I never knew what hit me when I had a first brush of crush for my teacher Hamid’

Siya ”I got pained when he got married a few months later’

Heartbroke… 1 yeat later

Siya ”this guy used to keep following me.. in college.. buses, trains and one day I stopped to ask him .. why so?’

Jai just smiled and said ”I love you”

Siya ”I could not cope.. and said stop following me.. else will call the police”

Siya ”Next day onwards he just disappeared.. To come to think of it,, he seemed from good family.. but”

and then 4 years later

Siya ”I was here on my startup mission ..in accelerator program giving pitch and one of my cofounder planted a kiss on my cheeks.. ghosh.. I didnt like it at all”

Jack ”hey Siya what is wrong.. have just joined you to make you feel comfortable.. am exploring a long term relation with you”

Siya ”common.. these investors.. the revenue and returns.. sorry not now”

2 weeks later Jack resigned and am left all alone

Siya ‘is there something wrong in me.. commitment phobic.. or am I not getting right partner.. love knocks and that is it…

As Siya is pouring her heart to her best friend Michael

Michael ”Siya.. you need a break.. no strings attachment.. will it work for you.. I and you can go to Bali”

Siya ”common… not again…”

 

Startup 24/7

Joy ‘we need to work 24/7 to be up and running’

Mona ”common… 3 shifts.. it is too tiring.. never seen this largely in developed countries’

James ”chill pill..  we too overlap your timings’

Mona ”in this skype.. not sure why are debating this.. but virtual project management is always a challenge’

Joy ”do you know.. the biggest challenge a startup faces is SERIES A fund.. subsequent fund is not coming in easily’

James ”we need to identify entrepreneur traits.. are they employee in garb of entrepreneurs or are they just into this ecosystem because they are not getting jobs”

Mona ‘cool.. should we initiate a startup to put such scores.. it is very simple.. if you like independence and also flexible to work as team,  love to take decisions, strategize.. then you need to experiment entrepreneurship..  in case you are scared, not confident to face audience, feel dejected, rejected, insecure and like to balance life then please do not experiment being entrepreneur..  it is not your cup of tea.. do not then crib by that X person grew so well or became a brand or whatsoever”

James ”yes.. I agree.. Startup 24/7 is a philosophy.. not a pressure or a mandate.. it is thinking about what you love.. and be passionate to pursue that love.. it could be research on any field..  if  this ecosystem is not right for you.. then get into MNCs”

Joy ”common.. they literally make you work 24/7 and boldly announce 24/7 work”

Mona ”all assume and want a cushy job.. but that is possible only in government / academics”

Robert pops in ”Hey.. hi.. suddenly you put academics.. was watching this skype fun”

Robert ”you are mistaken.. there it is syllabus preparation, these days mandatory research papers, getting students is biggest KRA.. so seriously I too am thinking to be part of startup”

Mona ”cool.. welcome to this 24/7 circus of passion.. you just cannot think of being relaxed if you wish to build a large foundation or company..  if you wish to relax.. please relax .. this is not your cup of tea”

Robert ”common dude.. I am voluntarily coming into this circus.. I am experimenting with a research on identifying individuals who just cannot take any pressure”

Mona ‘wow”

Robert ”it is a pattern analysis.. deep learning..  check on statistics of how much restless you become just by slightest pressure of work or family or kids or anything”

Mona ”then”

Robert ”if you run away and try to meditate always.. you will be found in religious places for ever.. but rather then running away.. we need to guide them to work confidently.”

Mona ”then.. how it is linked to entrepreneurship?”

Robert ”these folks should never get into leader role.. they are followers..  they should reconcile and not be overtly ambitious.. then it would lead to complex personality disorders later on”

Mona ”wow.. you need to prove this”

Robert ”ya….  it is a hypothesis.. “I am a prospective entrepreneur” itself is an hypothesis.

Mona ”anyways welcome to PASSION again”

(This piece of writing is absolute fiction.. no relevance, coincidence with dead or alive and not intended to hurt any religious or any sentiments..  It is just a trend observed where kids are not taking care of their elders..  not sure why? but it is really sadenning to see elders wiping away their entire funds to groom kids, train and educate them and subsequently only to land themselves in mess..

wake up call for all elders to be careful and ensure everything is in your hand till you live and keep loving your kids all the way.. do not go overboard in emotions and repent later”

For youngsters : look at all the years of your life.. Friendship day also means being friends with your parents. I am sure all are friends.. if not, tomorrow is another opportunity for you

Happy friendship day
