An Apple product launch never goes without an equally captivating Introduction video. And every time this video makes me go (O_O)

Somehow Apple introduction videos are not just seen, but also felt.

So why is that?

Focus on the product not the character

Up-close shots of the shiny aluminum, sleek gliding headphone extension, the casual bouncy headnet and the super satisfying clicks of mechanical volume control feels surreal.

At the same time People (Characters) in Apple ads are not recognizable celebrities. That’s on purpose because 1. It takes away the attention from the product close-up shots and 2. …


Chamath Palihapitiya in this interview at Stanford GSB talks about accumulating capital and deploying it towards his own worldview. The last 1 hr listening to it feels like a privilege. So many views resonated with me that I “felt” I should write about it to myself.

Your worldview is important

“There are about 150 odd people who control most money in the world and they don’t give a shit about what you think about their worldview. So if I can accumulate capital why shouldn’t I deploy against it my worldview too. I’m not saying that my worldview is best but why shouldn’t I, Why…

It’s a notion I have held for long.

There are a lot of parallels to these, which all have the same roots

What isn’t complete, isn’t useful.

What isn’t polished, isn’t worth showing,

What isn’t popular, isn’t top quality

It’s important to understand the radical scale that we use to see the world when we say this statement. Life isn’t binary so why encourage thoughts that are black & white, all or none in nature. We need to appreciate the greyness of life, since the grey area where the most growth, learning happens.

The Zeroes and Ones are just the…


What is JagrukCorona?

Jagruk Corona is a crowdsourced platform that helps citizens report any violation of lockdown during COVID-19 pandemic in their locality. The report is crosschecked by moderators(us for now) who inform the nearest police station.

Why build it fast?

  1. Rising cases: As of 1st April India had 2059 Confirmed cases and exponentially rising. The time to act is now.
  2. Violations: Frequent news of crowding at retail shops, people going out on jogging tracks, and people quarantined leaving homes. Violations frequently made headlines.


Thoughts on why you should start coding in any capacity and deconstructing barriers that have been holding you back till now. If you are a maker of things like me and want to build solutions as an engineer/startup/PM you already know how important is the skill of code.

But what if you hate doing it?

Coding: High leverage skill

Pre Intern

Is it right to think about a career in finance while doing a bachelors in technology (that too from IIT)? Why would a company working wholly in finance(non-tech) and related services hire you instead of taking commerce people or MBA people? How will you proceed ahead in the coming years, Is there any future?

Well, these questions will motivate as well as demotivate you over the Pre-Internship period. …

*the internships mentioned here are Oncampus (mostly 1st 3week companies)
