Transition of Thoughts

Weaving thoughts into words

Tag: Entrepreneur



He always dreamt of doing something of his own rather than be part of a regular 9-5 job. But then, he realized that making money was important too. And so he set about building his capital before beginning his adventure.

When he began his personal venture, things didn’t exactly go to plan. Due to his inexperience and some bad advice, he ended up in a legal quagmire. He finally realized that being an entrepreneur was quite a different kettle of fish compared to what he had experienced till date. But then he thought to himself –

“I prefer keeping in mind even the possibility that existence has its own reason for being.”

He knew that quite a crowd would gather seeing him fail and fall. While it was not quite an amble through the park, he slowly but surely started reaping the fruits of his hardwork.

Book Review – Who Killed Nina Daruwalla

Book Review - Who Killed Nina Daruwalla

I have always been a fan of thrillers and murder mysteries. But it’s been a couple of months since I read one. And so when Blogchatter asked me to review this one, I was quite interested.

The blurb goes like this:

Ambitious, a successful entrepreneur, and a divorcee — Nina Daruwalla is all this and more. Her ex-husband abhors her, her lover is mad about her, a reporter wants a scoop from her, and her cousin again needs her help. She ends up dead, her throat slit open. Now, Inspector Yaqoob Ansari and his team need to unmask the killer.

The question is – Who Killed Nina Daruwalla?

The title and the cover page are perfect as the reader knows what to expect. The use of a different kind of font size for the title is quite apt.

Ajit pens a gripping narrative on the murder of a successful entrepreneur – Nina Daruwalla. There are various individuals who play a role in her life and aren’t happy with her for a variety of reasons. But then would anyone actually harm her?

100 word fiction: Boycott

100 word fiction: Boycott

“Why did you bring such a bad name to the family? I thought I was teaching you to be a good human being with great values. But instead you turned out to be the complete opposite.”

George couldn’t believe that his son had turned out to be a liar and a cheat. Due to his gross misdemeanour, he was thrown out of his own organization which he founded and ran with so much passion.

Within weeks, this star studded entrepreneur had gone from being a hero to a zero in front of the public who began boycotting all his events.

Do your choices reflect your hopes or fears?

Do your choices reflect your hopes or fears?

Do your choices reflect your hopes or fears?


At every step in life, we have to make choices. Choices for our career, choices for the one we want to marry, choices like going out or not, choices on the movie we want to watch or the food we want to eat and the likes. Some of these choices need to be made everyday while others are those that need to be made over a period of time.

Many individuals make their choices based on fear. The fear of the unknown, the fear of not succeeding, the fear of not being accepted, the fear of being ridiculed and so on and so forth.

Creating a Startup Revolution..

What is Entrepreneurship?

What is Entrepreneurship?


I just completed watching the first 4 episodes of TVF Pitchers, a new Indian show which talks about the journey of 4 guys who leave their cushy jobs to dream of starting their own company. In a country like India, there are hundreds of individuals who start their own companies every single day. But in comparison, the success stories are miniscule in number.

From lack of funding to a poorly developed idea; from inability to hire the right set of people to lack of differentiation among the competitors in the market, there are a number of reasons behind every failure. But one of the most fundamental ones is the ease with which wannabe entrepreneurs give up after being rejected a couple of times.

As is always the case in life, not giving up is the mantra one needs to follow to avoid being JUST another entity creating a startup revolution. It’s not always about doing different things but instead doing the same things differently could be revolutionary as well.

“The moon’s fight with the clouds captures my life perfectly. Every time I try to rise up and shine, something or the other pulls me down.”

John had always believed that he wasn’t cut out to work for someone in a regular 9 to 5 job. He aimed to do something different. Having ideas is one thing and implementing them successfully is another. While he never lacked in effort and perseverance, most of them didn’t really succeed after a certain stage thus impacting him monetarily and emotionally.

But he never gave up, hoping that one day he would strike gold.

Written for the photo prompt and you can read the other entries here.

That feeling of joining the bandwagon!

“Hey! All of them are taking part in this event. How can you expect me to miss it?”

“Look at those guys in the software industry. Even though there are too many of them, they are enjoying their lives. I also want to join it. That would at least assure me of a guaranteed job and income. Once I join, I can keep searching for a better job, what say?”

“If all those guys can get a girl, why can’t I? Is there something which they have and I don’t?”

“These days, guys around us are developing six packs left, right and center. Look at us. We are good for nothing”

PS: This post deals with examples related to the effects of joining the bandwagon in our daily lives. It doesn’t deal with joining national or the Indian independent movements and examples of that kind.

I am sure there are many of us who must have come up with at least one of the above statements at some point in time. Is it really necessary that we must do the same what everyone has done for years? What is so special about joining the bandwagon? Is it a fad? Does it really give us a high when we just do the same thing what millions do? Lets check it out.
