Unconditional love

Love is one of the most beautiful emotions granted to man and is often the least understood emotion. There is a fine line between attachment and pure love. Attachment is laden with expectations, disappointment and is all about you rather than the person being loved because attachment imposes conditions on the love being given.

Entrepreneurial Spirit vs Team Spirit

Zubin Mehta’s orchestra performed recently in Mumbai and it was absolutely stunning to hear each musicians excel with their instrument, yet be in complete harmony with the orchestra. No musician attempts to compete or stand out, everyone accepts their role and performs seamlessly.

Action vs Stability

Just get up and act. Over analysis cause paralysis. Sometimes we get it right and sometimes not. We have the ability to rewrite and recreate


Swim fearlessly in the ocean of life with the power of self-confidence.

Self Awareness To Self empowerment

Rule your thoughts and change your attitude from ‘I have to do it’ to ‘I can do it’.

Work Life Balance

Work life balance A common debate that universally captures attention is the concept of work-life balance. What do you mean by work life balance? The fundamental question that arises is why do we look at work separate from life. Are we not living life while working?

Time Management

I had the privilege to listen to President Bill Clinton, whilst he was visiting Mumbai. When I looked around in the audience, I wondered what is it that distinguishes a leader like Mr Clinton from the rest of us sitting in the audience.

I, Me, Myself

What do you think about or who do you think about all day. If you are young, you are likely to think about your school, your grades, how good or bad are your teachers, friends or parents.

Go with the Flow

I attended a talk given by Mr Werner Erhard, founder of Landmark Education, who said, “Masters of life (all those he had met) dont think about life – they are in a dance with life!” This was news to me that you can acquire mastery by dancing with life moment to moment.

Life is an Illusion

Saint Vyasa in his epic tale, The Mahabharata depicted a human being through an amazingly creative medium using symbolic representation such as chariot, horses, reins etc.

Emergence of Ego

We live our life like a Ferris wheel; one moment, up, another moment, down. You are either trying to manage your emotions or that of others around. This creates a feeling of frustration, helplessness, resulting in outbursts of anger. Do you often wonder if life was meant to be so?

Perfection in Creation

We are born perfect. The home we are born in, the date, time and even the physical appearance are not determined by us or our parents. All these factors are pre-determined because our contribution to humanity happens best from there on.
