Snail Mail

Yes, we saw an inland letter with our home address on television screen on Doordarshan.

Our connection to Postal Department is since the days of my great grandfather Shri Pherumal Motiramani who was a postmaster in Jhalawar (Rajasthan). My father inherited philately as a hobby and I as a kid became a fan of postal codes and geography.

We were watching television and the programme was about lost letters which never reach out to addressee as they change their locations without informing local post office.

Suddenly we saw our own letter with the above address. This was many years ago. In this age of electronic communication, I would still like to have an archive of that programme of Doordarshan.

Can you please suggest how can I get access to that old archive and retain a copy for our reference?

Since then I always informed local post offices of our address change and always been friends with postman on Diwali.

Now I have their mobile numbers as well.

How about putting some breaks in life?

“We are moving too fast in Life. ”

When my friend commented, i was comprehending it with full attention. I myself have been a technology  slave and still i am to some extent. The speed of information which was supposed to save time is demanding more time from me.
“When we were kids we had all the time and luxury. When i was earning Rs. 3000/- a month salary i was enjoying it much more than currently being country manager of an MNC.” My friend commented.
The information rich have gone time poor. Time poverty is asking us to slow down in life and look at things with a pause. If you feel the same please do join us in a movement to look at life from different perspective.
On this platform we would like to discuss about Slow Movement. Basically everything with slowness and mindfulness rather than a hectic pace of life.
With this background we would like to propose a series of WhatsAppinars to discuss slowness as a skill in the contemporary settings. The first WhatsAppinar is being planned on this Saturday April 29, 2017.
The idea is not to eat away your time on a weekend but you may join at your will. However we would request your 15 minutes of contribution on what you think about “Speed of Life”. Share your experiences.
I would recommend you to have a look at this video from Carl Honore, Author of “In Praise of Slowness” before joining in.
We can sync in for the WhatsAppinar on the following link
Join WhatsAppinar this Saturday 29 April 2017 between 10 am- 5 pm https://t.co/CwzNCTlAQf
Please do share your suggestions if any.

Entrepreneur Friend

​”You look like Vijay Mallya”

I shouted under the mango tree, near the Harvard steps. It’s a coincidence that his name is Vijay Krishnan.

Sportive look and in French beard he looked like an entrepreneur. He has recently started http://www.theconstructionstore.in 

Civil Engineer by profession, when I asked him what his target segment is? He replied “Mitron, 125 Crore Deshvasiyon” 

Buzzing with ideas he is an entrepreneur to be watched. Do visit his website http://www.theconstructionstore.in 

​I failed therefore I am

Exam Time! That’s the time I don’t study at all. I listen to music, read fiction and watch movies. 
When I failed in a class at school, I learnt the greatest lesson. Never study during exam Time. 

It was just a habit of last minute exam preparation that I had to break. That year I fell ill just before exams. That year onwards I started preparing day by day , inch by inch. And I learnt the secret of being a champion.

So for the next class above plan is recommended. For this exam watch the movie 3 Idiots and chant “All is well” , “All is well” , “All is well” 

Whatsapp ke side effects

​On Sunday I had severe throat infection and cold. I called up my uncle who is a doctor to advice on medication. He asked me to note down 3 medicines.

As all medicine shops were closed on Sunday in Vastrapur, I sent someone to fetch medicines. He called up saying that one particular medicine was unavailable.

I messaged back my uncle to give alternate one. He did so.

I was little better on Tuesday. On Wednesday I got side effect and later found out that instead of one antibiotic I was taking two which caused side effects. 

* Moral of the story: Yes you already got it *

Whatsapp can create nuisance in your life.

Conversations are Markets

​Conversations are Markets

January 25,2017

I was chatting with Pratik who was travelling with his parents in my cabin. Conversation revolved around Demonetization, Reliance Jio and a site called http://www.confirmtkt.com which is helpful while making train reservation.

Here was the learning:

1. Vodafone network doesn’t charge roaming like BSNL but Idea does.

2. This site confirmtkt.com gives possible options while making train bookings.

3. Nihilent Technologies IPO is round the corner.

4. Bharuch Sing may not be produced in Bharuch.
