BNLF--a blogging conference like no other!

Sometimes in life, you have  journeys that you start on, where you never know where they take you. You start on them hesitatingly, unsure of the destination. You keep going as long as you can see the road in front of you, lit with a little torchlight at times and by the sun, at times. There are moments when you doubt what you are doing. There are times when you stumble and wonder if you are lost. But you don't turn back and abandon the road half way through. You keep going. No matter how hard it is. No matter how exhausted you are. Because you are hooked. It's the one thing that you continue doing.

My blogging has been one such journey. I started this blog on 22nd October 2006. It has been nine long years now and I am now no longer the anonymous, unknown blogger that I was when I first began. The journey for me has be beautiful, exhilarating, terrifying, exciting and the magnificent--all at the same time.

And I am going to be talking about this journey at a totally fabulous I…

A lovely session at Start-o-nomics 2015, Delhi.

So I have just got back from Delhi, where I had been invited as one of the main speakers, atStart-o-nomics 2015, which was a start-up and an internship fair organised by the  students of the Economics Department of Dyal Singh college, Delhi.

The experience was fabulous--easily one of the best I have had, where I have been invited to speak. (and I have spoken at IITs, IIMs and corporates like KPMG, Infosys, Accenture and many more). Right from the mail where they invited me,  to the last minute detailed itinerary they planned for me, to the smart young lad who came to pick me up at the airport, to the warm welcome I got---all of it , I would say it was impeccable. They were so well organized in terms of planning, arrangements at the venue and the publicity both before and after the events.

I got a standing ovation, as soon as I went up on stage! I spoke about my journey from an unknown blogger to one of India's highest selling authors, and also talked about 4 things that helped me…
