So, I Was Thinking About This GST Thing.. — Pune365

The government is going to streamline taxation and stuff. I think it’s great. GST is an Indirect Tax, which is very different from a Direct Tax. Analysts and financial people understand the difference. I haven’t been raised to care about the difference. All I have been raised to care about is that if there… via So, […]

Vision, Power, and … Leadership

Vision, Power and Leadership: What is a leader but a person who takes responsibility of others, a person who gives up their vision to the care of others, and takes up the responsibility of caring for those others?

Time For Some Self-Skilling — Pune365

Just the other day, I was sitting quietly minding my own business, when this inane conversation posed into my space. “It’s difficult right now. Very difficult.” Said one voice. “But you could try.

Life On Rent – No Single People Please!

There’s a matter of grave concern that is vexing a few of my neighbours. A matter of grave concern. And I know it’s been brewing for a few months now, maybe longer. There are these young boys who rent one of the apartments in the society. … yes, that’s the grave concern. Bachelor boys renting… via […]

Discovering Altamash Gaziyani

There’s something strange about the world we live in. On the face of it, individuals today are connected to more of the global population than at any other time in the last 500 years.
