Run, Play and Work (not necessarily in that order)

Running gives you a chance to challenge yourself at every moment when your mind tries to stop you, but your heart says, ‘don’t quit, finish line is close’. Interestingly, heart always wins the fight.

TCS Open 10k was actually more inspiring than Sunfeast Open 10k, 2010. Words of encouragement from the bystanders, occasional music, sound of the shoes drumming the streets, and Bose DK made TCS 10k memorable. A big shout out to all the people, who participated in the wheelchair event. It was truly inspiring to see them driving the wheelchairs to the finish line with great zeal. When it becomes difficult to carry your own weight, it indeed takes extreme courage to carry your friend along with you. I hope to continue participating in running events.

MobStac won Businessworld’s Hottest Young Entrepreneur Award for 2011. MobStac is rated as the hottest young Indian startup. After two years of hard work, MobStac has come into the limelight. While the Captains, Ravi and Sharat, did an incredible job of steering MobStac to the right path, the technical team, Shivansh and Bhashkar, left no stone unturned in making sure that everything works beyond a publisher’s expectations. We have got an awesome team of interns, Nayan, Sameer, Paranjay, Kushagra, Phalgun and Sahana, who are contributing to the completion of several critical projects.

Although I have worked with very smart people, team MobStac has something that is more than smartness. I call it the sense of belongingness. We hope to grow by leaps and bounds in the next twelve months. Wish us luck, guys. Mobstac turns two tomorrow. I wish MobStac many happy returns of the day.

My day never completes without a couple of badminton matches. The sport is teaching me to keep patience when the plans go awry. I play well sometimes, screw up badly on some other days. But, I am learning to become more patient with each passing day. There are people who are always calm, irrespective of how their partner performs. They give their best effort, which is what truly matters. I want to be like a duck, who stays calm on the surface but paddles like hell underneath. And, sport is teaching me exactly that. I think everybody should take up at least one sport. It will not only help you to feel good about yourself, but also build your character.
