Reflections on a Republic | Wisdom Letter #21
We can certainly bask in the glory of the successful experiment called the Republic of India.
But as much as this experiment has been successful, it has also been riddled with numerous failures and challenges that are worth reflecting on. And we strongly believe that there is always a lot more to learn from failure than from success. We ignore our flaws at our own peril.
So for us as Indians, and also as citizens of the world, it’s imperative that we contemplate on where a democracy as vibrant and diverse as India has failed its people, the very entity it was conjured up to serve.
Decide And Conquer | Wisdom Letter #14
How do you decide anything?
Okay that’s kind of vague.
How do you make decisions about the big things in life?
Things like a major job switch, or the decision to get married(or not!), or when to have kids(or not!).
And what about the smaller, lower stakes decisions that pop-up everyday. Like what to eat today, or where to go for your next vacation, or what to do with the pile of money rising in your bank account?
Some psychologists say that we take approximately 35000 decisions in a day.
Yes! that’s a lot.
Lets try and get some wisdom around decision making.

The Infinite Scroll | Wisdom Letter #24
Humans are dynamic complex beings bound by the laws of evolution.
As humans evolve, so do their relationships, and so should the parameters of those relationships. And yet often highly mature relationships are measured based on the parameters of “young love” or “college romances” which lead to unnecessary friction and heat.
As we conclude our two part series on Love, we look at the challenges a modern long term relationship faces and what we can do to overcome those challenges.
We will also see what happens when healthy loving relationships are cut short abruptly and how do we deal with loss and longing in our great love.
As we saw earlier, Falling in Love is inevitable and terribly easy (you can even fall in love with an OS), in this post we will explore how we can Rise in Love and lead a happy, healthy and fulfilling life.
