Nandan Nilekani after the recent Infosys quarterly results made a hugely deep statement – ‘I am glad, Infosys is back to its Boring ways’.

My take away from his statement:-  ‘Anything that is very exciting has a very high risk-reward ratio of it turning out to be a disappointment’. Boring is the NEW Sexy.  Read More

Year 2015 was probably one of the heaviest years for me about my work-travel. I did some 100+ Events that year across India & Asia. One September evening, when I was totally zonked & bored with daily flights I decided to have some fun. I held a contest on my Social Media: Motivate the Motivational Speaker. My believers had to try and motivate me. Some people did surprise me with their originality & creativity in their point of views. Few of them became friends & they manage to inspire me even today during conversations. My work as a Motivational Speaker for Corporate Events & Youth in the last 18+ yrs has had the influence of some of the most brilliant, top Motivational Speakers in the world. Their content, their stories, and their style of communication – it all just makes me a fanboy!

I have always been an ardent fan of the word ‘courage’. There is something about being brave that makes you feel ‘wow’. Doesn’t it? A confession:- I  am a fallible human first & then a motivational speaker. I go on stage every now and then talking of courage to an auditorium full of people. But honestly, I have my own mind-issues about me not feeling courageous at a lot of other places and aspects in my life!. But then – this isn’t my story. This blog is about some exceptional real life stories of courage; courage of all kinds. And what are those kinds, one may ask! I think courage comes in all shapes and sizes. Read More

Every time I log on to Facebook or Instagram, I am a little saddened by the large amount of insecurities at display. One of the issues that a lot of young people grapple with, and I have been frequently asked about is – body image issues. Body shaming has become a commonly accepted norm these days – and there is no dearth of both – the guilty and the victim. Too many people struggle with overcoming body image issues- height, complexion, nose, hair, proportion, voice and many else. As a motivational speaker, I write this an attempt to steal the thunder from vanity in the name of body shaming because of genetics and bring some real clarity on the real things that really matter.

Recently my newsfeed on Twitter, FB and other places suddenly is full of Modis, Rahuls & Kejris. And it is kind of becoming quite boring. Sick and even obnoxious too at times.

The shocker is that a Punjabi guy who himself is not able to govern even basics elements of his own life has a huge opinion about Governments in Uttar Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra, India and even USA. And that does not stop here. He then vehemently defends his favorite leader everywhere. Fights around to prove that what he thinks is right. Clear cut problem of erroneous priority settings and hyper-drugged mind about his idol (political party). Lots of free time and mind too. Read More
