Please drive carefully!

Today morning, while going to office on my bike, I met a small accident and it was my fault. Me, and my friend who was sitting behind, were lucky on so many levels, that I am hoping I would be able to walk properly by tomorrow and the friend was able to continue to office today itself after some nursing help. The way we fell far apart from each other and from the bike, I don’t want to imagine what could have been the other outcomes.

Just requesting everyone around to drive more carefully and responsibly. “More” because until something happens, everyone assumes that he drives carefully. Drive carefully, if not for yourself then atleast for those who care about you, who love you.

My favorite inspirational movie quotes

Every once in a while, you come across a movie which inspire you a lot or forces you, do some self-introspection. I have collected here some such quotes which have deep meaning, and which I like a lot. Even though, the quotes have no information about the context, but if you’ve seen the movie I’m sure you’ll get the context. Do post some other good inspirational movie quote off the top of your head, in comments below. I’ll keep adding more as and when I watch a new movie or re-watch an old one and come across a dialogue worth it.

Milestone 1.0 reached – a quick diary entry

Wow, looking at the date of my last blog post, I realize it really has been long time for me posting anything at all. So, much happened during this time – completion of B.Tech, startup explorations in the following weeks, joining a startup (yep!), convocation at the new campus of my college institute, Mussorie trip with startup friends, those fun Sundays with cousins, and the list goes on…

Anyways the purpose of this blog entry is just making a note of today’s small achievement which I have been waiting desperately for sometime! I promise I will keep it short :)

What happens behind those walls during the 54 hours in a Startup Weekend!!!

Last weekend, “Startup weekend” – a popular startup event was back at Delhi and when I heard about it, I decided to attend it! Though even getting a ticket was not so easy for me, as when I was registering, (Student) tickets which were available when I visited the website, were sold out by the time I reached the payment page! Thanks to Pankaj (the lead organizer of the event in India), I found someone who had purchased a ticket but was out of station so he couldn’t come. And so I got my ticket… ticket… to… Startup Weekend!!!

Why I chose working with a startup and why I loved my work here…

I’m so excited in writing my first blog but hey, considering that it’s my first blog post ever, I’d like to see comments/suggestions from you! :)

Most of us (atleast those who follow Techcrunch, YC news (aka HN), etc.) have been hearing about the startup buzz-word becoming so popular in recent years.
Now, it has been more than 2 months since I joined Mobikwik team as an intern and the internship is almost over, so, I thought I would share my first hand experience of working with a startup so far.
