Journey continues

This year showed me the way I used to see things is wrong, small changes make a huge difference.

When showing self-appreciation, why the person has to explain themselves. I love my body, I love my assets. I am proud of myself.

This year introduced to many personalities, the one standing out is how to be appreciative of your abilities. I met risk takers, passionate followers none were money hoarder. Growth of oneself is the utmost priority.

I see millennials (myself included) clinging to materialistic things but we also are rainy day saver, lone travellers, happy with staying at home but never disrespecting.

I learnt when growing a personal brand, make sure all the things you are preaching should be followed by a story. I learnt to make a bang, your past is not your hurdle. But your war story.

In a year, I may have lost a few inches but gained a lot of experiences. I am wiser than in 2018. I became appreciate for small things, more art forms.

Unlearning things was the hard part.

“The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.”

It is never stopping the process of growing out of the comfort zone.

Freebie economy …-2

Why is Reliance able to make its hold on indian market?

Why are more inclining towards cheaper options?

Why Indian are so inclined towards micro economy of pricing?

Why Jetairways or IndiaGo are in trouble over price wars ?

How will aviation industry is going to overcome its price woes?

There are lot of these questions burning in my head, but no answers are been received.

Is only Indian economy so inclined towards price wars? or Is this is story of whole world.

Maybe we can find a solution to this trade wars soon enough.

 

 

Freebies economy

People are not inherently lazy, our behaviour and environment make us lazy.

The shift in shopping, chores, we are becoming a slave to this procrastination regime. If I don’t want to cook, I order food online. If I don’t slice veggies, I order the sliced version over the app. If I don’t want to clean my house, I would call a housekeeper to do it. But it’s more like delegating the task to another person.

Yesterday, I was going through an article on LinkedIn depicting the rise of B2B startup. As far as I remember, business people have a thought process of solving a problem. So what are these startup’s giving solution to? Have we ever wondered where this freebie logic came from?

If someone offers me a gift, there should not be a hidden message. But the gifting process has changed because we are seeking skills over these gifts.

What do you think is the right approach here?

Rat race – Work culture

“Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for – in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it.”
― Ellen Goodman

We are slowly becoming slaves to corporate and professional culture leaving behind the humane connect. I feel constantly exposed to bickering and ranting nature of my fellow humans.

Social media has made us a slave of all virtual things. Today while commuting to work, saw various individuals peeping in their PDA’s, but never interactive with the person sitting next to it.

I remember how a child is fascinated by the quirks of older people. But now categorised as one of the adults, I myself have become a worshiper of this rat race.

We are always competitive and comparing our stand with others. Popular internet sensation “Jay Shetty” mentored many of us by his monk style living and asking us to be patient, but who does have that patience. We are living in a world of instant gratification and success.

“Constantly exposing yourself to popular culture and the mass media will ultimately shape your reality tunnel in ways that are not necessarily conducive to achieving your Soul Purpose and Life Calling. Modern society has generally ‘lost the plot’. Slavishly following its false gods and idols makes no sense in a spiritually aware life.”
― Anthon St. Maarten

 

 

Aside

Love is overrated

I still feel the concept of Adam and Eve is totally bonkers. God never wanted to live alone, so he created his own shadow in another form.

I am always asking the questions, and it is getting on their nerves. But “why” do we have to rely on the other human being for our own survival. The lone traveller (nomad) is the best concept ever. This rat-race of “falling” in love and getting most out of the relationship is catching up. The “human” part of the relationship is forgotten.

The society wants us to be bound in the holy matrimony. Well, our Gods never followed it. They had the best relationship outside of it. How can we be bound in such atrocity?

This love industry makes millions every year. How can they live with themselves while selling lies? The romantic cliche books are always bestsellers. There is no handsome prince to rescue Cinderella. There is no prince to save Snow White. There is no prince to wake up Aurora.

 

Movies are also leaving the romance angle behind and embracing a new genre. But why this “love” is not seen as it should be. It has become a materialistic commodity.

“I am losing precious days. I am degenerating into a machine for making money. I am learning nothing in this trivial world of men. I must break away and get out into the mountains to learn the news”
― John Muir

Linkedin – influencers

For the past few months, I am actively interacting with so-called LinkedIn influencers via the algorithms of “likes” and “shares”. I do not understand the new regime at all.

The right kind of candidates and recruitment culture was always prominent. It is the recent technological advancement which is making people lazy and more available to lament of the facts of life. They should only be helping in connecting people with the right job post nothing more. I want the old linkedin back. It has become the new “facebook”.

Social media – it is ruining our face to face interaction.

 

LinkedIn is a social networking site designed specifically for the business community. The goal of the site is to allow registered members to establish and document networks of people they know and trust professionally.

Why we have to show a false image of success?

Who verify the data entered in the profiles?

Who knows either they are guiding the users in the correct fashion? 

 

While writing this post I had a few questions, now I am not sure.

Having joined for the networking purpose, never thought I would be entrapped by the charms of the influencer. Will this new regime bear fruits for generations to come or is it a bubble waiting to burst?

Coffee addict but addict nonetheless

So at one point I was addicted to the Americano, freshly brewed ice coffee and über rich filter coffee of south India.

But as my size grew, my tongue demanded more subtle taste in beverages. So I tried all :

  1. Scotch
  2. Beer
  3. Rum
  4. Whisky
  5. Vodka
  6. Tequila

Just Joking : they are not my choice of poison anymore. 

I moved on to white tea, flavoured tea, green tea and Oolong tea.

Little I was aware, that it will open up Pandora box of tea. The unlimited ways of tea brewing, concoctions available is staggering. They intimade the drinker in choosing the well known brands, but the lesser known flavors are a hit. They are so good, I feel like I missed a lot because of just a coffee drinks.

Maybe so I will been searching for that niche again.

 

 

 

Foodgasm

A food lover to food hater it was a journey no one wants to embark upon. From a heavy drinker to sobriety, people appreciate. But why not about the addiction to food.

I see a lot of posts lately regarding #foodporn. But there are 14% of the world population dying of hunger. But what are we doing, we click the pictures and waste them.

There are more such insta/snapchat users than hunger and malnutrition relief fund foundation donations.

When we stop this waste, we also bring a small change in one person’s life, they get food to eat. We should global warming because of depreciating food waste. What is your change story?

 

“When I came to see you
It hurt me how thin you had become

In the months of addiction & disease
& although your particular abyss

Was a man & not a drug
The degradation was the same

The same wasting of the flesh
The same tapped-out well emptied

Of the least leaf of emotion
The same frozen rage”
― David St. John, The Auroras: New Poems

I am not a fashion blogger, but a small human being asking for a small change.
