A Brief Review of Vijaypat Singhania Autobiography

I saw an Instagram reel with the 84-year-old VPS (Vijaypat Singhania) telling his story about how his son Gautam has made him homeless (Yes, he lives in a rented apartment). I was immediately curious why the successful, wealthy businessman faced such a fate from his youngest child. I picked up the kindle book for Rs 190 and used the Alexa app to listen to the book.

Shantanu Naidu’s venture to eliminate the guilt of children living abroad

We all were young and had parents or still have them around, but the law of nature is that the old must go to be replaced by the new. Sometimes death comes all of a sudden, and sometimes the old keep wishing they would die instead of going through the humiliation of being dependent or trouble to the young. But Yamraj Ji is an erratic guy; he comes and takes people away on his whims and fancy, notwithstanding the thousands of children praying for their parents to be dead....

Social media addiction is a failure at negotiation with people

Do you find yourself spending a lot of time on social media instead of being with people in real life? Maybe your work is such that you have to be on social media to get business or generate leads. In that case are you able to keep it purely business and shut it down off business hours? Well, no need to confess. We knowledge workers, I mean those who create info products be it a tweet, Instagram reel or any other form of digital media very well know, that we get those dopamine likes when some beautiful stranger out there likes our post or follows us back....

A feminist divorced her husband cause she was expected to cook

I don’t know why people tell me their stories. On one such accidental meeting with an old acquaintance in a coffee shop, we got talking. Since I always had a soft corner for her and was a bit jealous that she was now married, I asked her about her marriage. But then she blurted out she was divorced. Woah!

How to overcome "eternal lust' aka "kam vasna"

I just heard this entire talk by Osho this morning, so I thought I might as well sum it up as it is fresh in memory. This is Osho at it’s best! His articulation and drilling down into minutiae is like no one else. I feel due to short attention spans nowadays no one has the patience to tell stories like Osho does. I had stopped listening to him as I also felt he sounded dated....
