Startup story

Comes an investor and shrieks ”I made so much investment, where is returns?’

Entrepreneur ”Even I don’t have the money.. we spent in staff and marketing”

Investor ”but what we gained of all this?”

Entrepreneur ”more investors began showing interest.. relax Sir, we will get subsequent round of funding?’

Investor ”I need a clear exit after 1 year”

Entrepreneur ”me too may exit.. let the investor only run the venture.. am fedup of working as employee in garb of showing myself as an entrepreneur.. finally am still in listening mode only.. no flexibility”


You too say the same thing

Why do we repeat things when we know the conclusions will remain same.

Sometimes the same questions and then again same answers…

Example ‘do not call me again”.  ”please close it”. “you are so adament”

“I will not do the same thing again”. “I am bored of routine”

So what needs to be done under this cases is only Innovation

“The same routine can be avoided through small changes.. example if you are brushing teeth only once, you can begin doing it two times,  if you are tired of an old furniture… change it”

Life is a routine dear.. Startups too will become a routine affair sooner or later

If you said someone “I love you today” and again repeat same every day, the purpose of saying “I love you will be lost”,

so what remains very important is ‘doing repeated things with same vigor, enthusiasm and do not strive for so much perfection and expect same perfection from others.. imperfection is absolutely fine”


Kick butts

Kick butts dear

from behind

as need a big push…

to be thrown out

of that overcroweded train..


Ravi is woken up by a passenger

Passenger ”church gate… last station”

Ravi see’s his whatsapp.. his long distance girlfriend Maria has messaged

Maria ”oh goodness standing in these trains.. reaching NY.. such a pain.. hope someone just pushes me out of this safely.. and I do something better to ensure am not in trains for rest of our life”

Ravi smiles and walks around the over crowded churchgate, mumbai, India station to reach his office..

He murmurs ”our life at times get caught in an environment which looks like an overcrowded train.. it could be an overzealous startup trying to compete with all.. it could be an employee fighting for salary hikes.. or roadside beggar competing with other fellow beggars.. just we need someone to kick our butt and move us out of that train”

Ravi’s 2nd girlfriend Ria greets him ”Ravi not done..  how come you can love so many individuals at same time… dont you feel your heart is overcrowded too””

Ravi ”common.. not again… as it is am thinking of train/platform etc.. and now you are saying my heart is like a train”

Ria ‘hey is she so nice?”

Ravi ”atleast in senses”


Indo American Combo

Jayanti ”the day I got married to him.. I knew I had to cook Indo-American combo”

George ‘what is that?”


”1 IDLI, 1 small plate of Italian PASTA, 1 small PIZZA, a few fried potatoe chips and 1 large glass of Orange Juice”

George ”your hubby Rob.. won’t he find it boring eating the same dish again and again?”


”I replace that Idli with Dhokla, Dosa, Uttappa and so on”

“Pasta replaced with Noodles, Sausage, Choco chips and so on”

George ”cool.. ”

Jayanti ”I charge him 5$ for this breakfast”

George ”common.. he is your hubby?”

Jayanti ”No free lunch or dinners in America…”

George ”somewhere this misconception came across world.. that we are penny counting”

Jayanti ”see had he hired a cook, he would anyways have to pay.. so this one way of my savings (I make around US$1000 out of this and save it for my startup bootstrapping.. these days Investors do not believe entrepreneurs.. worst time”

George ”what??????”

Jayanti ”you know Rob.. he likes to invest in cool ideas.. but doesnt understand that an entrepreneur is sitting right in his house”

Till then Rob comes

Rob ”dear..  why do you feel, I am giving you 1000 every month? It is to check your sincerity in your goals..  make a franchise.. and get going”

Jayanti ”what brand?”


Jayanti and George burst laughing…



am transformer, who wishes to change all and change self too

to think positively and be on path of continuous learning..

48% of projects fail in the world.. largely because we are not getting right resources to take the jobs…

with limited skills… we all know the conclusions..

startups too are trying to disrupt but end up getting disrupted themselves… why because again wrong cofounders.. .wrong investors… and so on

so what the heck will I transform?


The journey of greedy love to selfless love needs a transformation

greedy – need a job desperately.. want to settle soon… want to marry soon… want to split soon and so on

selfless – hope he gets a job… hope she settles soon… hope they always remain united… hope they will survive all calamities…

selfless love need not be told.. it needs to be experienced by the other party

transformer will transform belief without even other beliefs realizing that the belief itself is being changed..
