Last week I finished reading a very interesting book “The immortal life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot”

Perhaps the most impressive biographical feat of the twenty-first century, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks is about a woman whose cells completely changed the trajectory of modern medicine.

Rebecca Skloot skillfully commemorates the previously unknown life of a poor black woman whose cancer cells were taken, without her knowledge, for medical testing — and without whom we wouldn’t have many of the critical cures we depend upon today.

HeLa cells (as they are called) not only survived but allowed scientists to…


Book Review: “Catalyst by Chandramouli Venkatesan”

Last week, I read a very interesting book, “Catalyst: The ultimate strategies on how to win at work and in life” by Chandramouli Venkatesan.

The author wrote it so brilliantly that I was glued to it, and finished it in a single sitting.

I would say it is a MUST read for all those who are working in the Corporate World.

My key takeaways from the book:

#1: Focusing on personal growth is much more fulfilling than fretting over promotions.

#2: Experience is the fruit of active learning not just doing a job.

#3: Seeking out and contributing to major…

“The Start-Up of You”: Creating your own personal brand

Last week I read a very interesting book, “The Start-Up of You” by Reid Hoffman

Reid Hoffman (co-founder and chairman of LinkedIn) and Ben Casnocha share a little secret in their book, the workforce escalator is crowded.

After graduation, we made way onto the escalator from the bottom step, and slowly rode our way to the top, attaining new career heights the longer we are on for the ride.

But with the death of the traditional career path, the escalator’s overcrowded and many are left feeling agitated and directionless.

Reid took Sheryl Sandberg (COO of Facebook) as an example.

Sheryl…


Recently I read a very insightful book on persuasive communication for anybody who is looking to make a lasting impression on their audience, “What To Say And When To Shut Up by Rakesh Godhwani”

The book speaks of a simple 6-element framework — The ‘AEIOU and Xtra E’ which can be applied in different situations to influence and persuade others to achieve success and become a leader.

The feature that makes this book stand apart in the crowd of similar books from the same genre is the inclusion of — “when to shut up.”

He touches upon the points where…


How many times have you felt that you’ve overthought something to such an extent that you can’t think of anything else now?

Overthinking is torture. To be locked in your mind with a constant array of discommoding thoughts is hell.

Why We Overthink?

We overthink because we are desperate creatures hunting for answers. We like certainty and we like being in control. Don’t worry, it's part of the human survival tactic. Well, somewhat. Overthinking is not all bad. Probability theory requires that all possible outcomes of an event must be explored to determine what can really happen in that given situation.

We know…


Last weekend, I recorded an insightful conversation with Ms. Nisha Ray.

Nisha Ray is a professional Kathak dancer & a trainer who has performed in many parts of our country, and various international festivals.

She gave a splendid performance at the opening ceremony of Common Wealth Games (2010) at Jawahar Lal Nehru Stadium under the guidance of Pt. Birju Maharaj Ji.

During our conversation, we talked about Kathak dancing, her initial struggles, her take on Western Dance forms, and the health benefits of dancing.

Back in 2006, when Melanie Perkins was 19-year-old commerce and communications student at the University of Western Australia, she got frustrated by how long it took to learn how to use the mainstream design software available at the time.

She turned that problem into a business opportunity. She set her mind on building an online design website that would be as easy as possible for people to use.

To test her idea, she created a company called Fusion Books, a website that allows high schools to design their yearbooks online.

Realizing that Fusion could be applied beyond yearbooks, Melanie flew…
