Passion,Ration & Leading

Some non-negotiables

Whats gonna work ?

Ownership & Responsibility over Authority

Question the box itself

Celebrate success often, discuss failures openly, implement self-reflection with discipline.

Prepare to be disrupted.Switch ideas,context,methods,tactics,campaigns (but not goals)

No jerks allowed.No blurry lines between jerkness and superstardom

the garden of demise


the fiery winds of late noon were dying

but ambers on the ground were still young

the drones,cattle,dogs and men


were returning to town

but he stayed back

in the garden of demise

masses trickled past him

some ignored him

some ridiculed

some were indifferent

some just startled

but no one cajoled him to leave

the garden of demise

for they feared that

he will not see her face


but here

at the garden of demise

Trigger happy


Bad metric


the ascetic



Loftier men read books to pass time

Smaller men chirp irrelevance

which becomes lore,

in the books that loftier men read to pass their time

It and Me

As i hit the clearing

just there,happened to see it 

of a different flesh it seemed

different mannerisms

different gait 

habits may be,too

but playing the same role

As if it had always been cognizant of my existence

and wanted to make me unwanted

your various presence

You cant always lead from the front

You should not,you dont have to

switch !

rapidly,you have to

sometimes,lead from the sides

ring fencing,minimising disruptions,setting up support structure for them to succeed

sometimes,lead from the back…..

coaching,awarding,rewarding,managing spotlights,watching them fail

sometimes,lead from the top…..

assessing performance,enhancing diversity,establishing rituals,debunking perceptions,crystallising their mind set

The Tango

sometimes memories flash longer than the summer days

and the pain is deep,deeper than the seven seas

and the ecstasy is sharp,sharper than the icy cliffs

and the climax rushed,shorter than the desert rains

emotions & phenomena at (such) odds with each other,

that they tango in perfect harmony
