“I do not want to go out today. I look at the pink paper that I have carefully folded and kept in the upper drawer of my study table. The paper has a poem, I think it is about me. It is about a girl whose smile is out of the world. Is that guy a weirdo? Who writes poems at the age of eleven? Who even writes poems nowadays? But he is cute, and super serious.”

“I know she is lying. I do not mind. I know she wants to be seen as a strong person. And strong people do not cry. But we writers know. The real strong person does not mind crying. In fact, the real strong person cries often, shares the pain of the other people, making it their own. But I let her lie, because she is being honest, as she always is.”
Rati, July 2009
“That’s what everyone thinks when they are young. You need money, it is a reality. Everyone starts with a very optimistic view of the world, but then disillusionment hits fast, and it is too late by then. In my opinion, even being a plumber is better than being a writer. Besides, you will have to spend your life alone. No sane girl would marry an author.”

He is a writer.
She is an engineer.
He writes poems to her.
She teaches maths to him at lunch.

A part of the World of Whiskey and Suicide, a world populated with the characters that you met first in “Whiskey and Suicide”, a world of middle class Indians, who lead a mundane life, till something makes them do something heroic, or villainous. The world contains romances, heartbreaks, mid life frustrations and joy, friendships, ambitions and heartburns, and a vast kaleidoscope of emotions that are pastel color.”
Meet Samay and Rati, the ordinary extra-ordinary couple.
In a poem, Manik is shocked by a suicide, in another he is talking about "Life Itself". There are poems about a small, quaint street in Bangalore, and there is a reply to Wang Wei about the changing nature of One's poems. Manik talks about Aliens in the same breath as he is talking about a Yogi meditating on his breath. These poems are a boisterous celebration of life in all its forms without judging it.
What are the traits of a successful entrepreneur?
Should I seek funding before I go to market?
What if I fail? Will I have a career?
These, and many other questions haunt a first time entrepreneur, when she looks at the option of starting something on her own. The typical advice of having a concrete idea, going with a Big Bang approach, procuring Venture Capital funding, scares the young entrepreneur even more.
Reclaim Your Inner Entrepreneur tries to provide a logical path to starting your own company while destroying many of the myths that go with the act of entrepreneurship. It tries to argue the merits of starting small, focusing on your means, building your network, and not going Big Bang. It distills the experiences of many seasoned entrepreneurs in a very informal discourse that is easy to digest.
A must read if you are thinking of starting a company.

When the author writes about music I just kept reading without taking my eyes off and awestruck about the people who are obsessed about the industry like the Sengupta brothers wanting to make a career out of it.
