Books Read in 2019: #4


Very rarely do I read a book that makes me contemplate on its contents for hours on end marveling at the mind of the author. Even rarer are the times when I actually read a book that isn't academic, with a highlighter at hand. This book explores mental health and the surrounding stigma in the most meaningful and neutral manner as possible from the history of psychology, to explaining the...

#P5 What are the topics that authors need to explore more in their books?


Henry Ward Beecher said, “Books are the windows through which the soul looks out”. I have always found that statement quite thought-provoking and curious. It always made me wonder as to what the soul does when we aren’t reading books. What is a soul anyway? This is not the first time anyone has heard this question.

Since the last post in ‘Startup Diaries’ (#SD1), quite a bit has happened. I had to resubmit the incorporation application two more times. I lost a client who I thought would be our ticket out into the open world. And. I learned that getting...

#P3 ‘The’ skill that makes or breaks


I am a regular human being. A shorter, childish looking one but a regular human nonetheless. But I believe I am special. I believe I can make anyone do anything. Not through torture or anything crazy. By talking. Plain and simple talking. I have seen a lot of different types of people in my life so far. I have seen people who are good at a variety of things. I have seen smart engineers, very...
