I have spent the biggest part of my sane life in Pune (Maharashtra, to be precise). If forced to define, I would say I am equally or more a Marathi (Maharashtrian) as I am a Gujarati. I have loved every moment (almost every) of my time being...

I finally started living in my new (rented) apartment in Bangalore, with no great movie to look for on TV (not sure if I should blame TataSky for that). The only option was to re-explore my old DVD collection. No rewards for guessing, I picked...

Home Is Everything

Yet another absurd title, considering what I’m planning to write about. I still hope it’s justified (by itself) by the end. I started 'typing' this article back in mid-2006 (on July 2, 2006 - to be precise). Not sure what stopped me from...

Article title courtesy: Symantec Road to Cutting Edge ’09. The big difference being, when I write ‘Road’ I mean ‘Road’. Lately, with my highly conscious efforts to get into some good shape (other than ‘round’ shape), I had to make some serious...

Disclaimer: When I say Bombay, I mean Bombay. That's not a slip of tongue. And that's unlikely to change. Now, let's get back to the article. With a dense humanity of tens of millions, there’s barely anybody who can claim to be somebody here....

Titles can really be deceiving. The ideal article-title here could have been “Traveling by Raj National Express”. I basically wanted to write about my recent journey from Pune to Bhopal by bus. A great new experience altogether! Like okay, I...

Of All Places, Why Bhopal?

Why Bhopal? The answer is simpler than tougher. However, the issue is severe: Why start a business in Bhopal? And that makes this article more interesting and complicated, since the facts about the city are flatly unknown to the most of...

The Best Things In Life Are Free

I am not talking about talking-for-free to absolutely anyone in any corner of the world (through Skype); nor is it about free Hotmail account you’re using for more than 10 years now. I am talking about real things in life, which count. And they...

Confusing Hard Work With Struggle

Rahul Desai
February 20, 2006

I have not referred to the Webster’s, Oxford’s or Gala’s or any other reliable (or even unreliable) dictionary for an absolute meaning of the noun ‘struggle’. Somehow it gives me a negative feeling and therefore, I defy its relation - whatsoever...

Blessed By The Maestros... Twice!

Rahul Desai
February 13, 2006
2 mins read
If there's anything like 'luck', then I've been the luckiest. Twice! Twice I've been privileged to see and hear their master-duo. Probably it all happened just to reinforce my strong-old belief that if one isn't into one or the other form of art...
