Begin the course you had always wanted to do.

Begin the certification you had thought would give you the edge amongst your peers.

Begin writing the novel you had always wanted to pen down.

Begin converting your thoughts into words and give your dormant blog a new lease of life.

Begin traveling to the different destinations you had always dreamt of.

As someone has said, there is nothing greater than the power of the written word. For me, writing is that activity which makes my world go round. It connects me to life and happiness in every possible way. Writers have the power to dream and create a new world with new characters. This combined with the ability of writers to weave varied emotions is what helps me connect myself with writing.

All of us have various goals and dreams. Irrespective of our passions, most of us aim to become rich and famous. But, isn’t there more to life than just earning good money? Isn’t happiness defined by the work you do, the people you meet which includes your friends and family and the time you get to do your own thing?

What does a writer dream of?

Royalty? Fan Following? A professional writing career? Winning the Booker Prize? Yes, all this is part of a writer’s dream. But at a fundamental level, a writer wants to get a chance to express his opinions freely and ensure that people read what he or she pens down.

Writers are always on the lookout for inspiration. From inspiration to write on a topic they haven’t ever thought of to inspiration from the exploits of fellow writers, there’s so much to learn from.

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.

Light at the end of the tunnel

“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.

“There are ‘n’ number of reasons to stay sad all the time. But life is too long to live in sadness throughout, isn’t it?”

Raashi had lost her parents in a air crash only a few years after she was born. While, none of her relatives were ready to take the effort for her care and growth, a young social activist brought her to an NGO which ensured that she got a chance to completed her studies and pursued her dreams.

Rochelle Potkar is a blogger, a fiction writer, a poet and more. She has been writing stories across various genres for the past 8 years. The Arithmetic of Breasts & Other Stories was nominated for the Digital Book of the Year Award 2014 by Publishing Next, Goa. Does it work? Let’s check it out.

The blurb goes like this –

A cluster of 7½ literary short stories presenting the romantic-sexual facets of: Narain who lusts for Munika, Old Jaganlal who wants a favour from young Dia, Jackie who is in love with Nic, a surgeon who is changing more than a patient’s hairline, nose, lip, and chin, Shonali and Neel who are realizing that infidelity might not be such an easy thing, a woman who walks the tight rope between tradition and sexual exploitation, and Sunil who meets the woman of his desires through an adult dating site. Through these stories, Rochelle Potkar explores the intensely personal ‘unrelationship’ that exists alongside its conventional and socially articulate twin, the relationship.

“Did you say you want to become an artist? Are you crazy? Is it even a profession?”

Sally had come a long way from hearing such comments from her family. For her, life wasn’t just about making money in a dreary and dull job. She wanted to follow her dreams and art was her passion.

Graffiti and street art helped her express her thoughts and frustrations about daily life. The day she was invited to the famous gallery to set up her own street art exhibition was when she realized that her art had the power to make a difference.
