Love me or hate me, but I have worked very hard, sincerely and diligently.

I always dreamt of doing something big, big in technology.

My Hometown Agra is a small and pretty famous city on the banks of river Yamuna. The city is famous for its most prized monument — The Taj Mahal, a mausoleum which was built in the memory of its then ruler’s wife Mumtaz Mahal, Taj Mahal is actually designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Why I am telling you this is also the reason why I left Agra, to fulfil my dreams. Though it’s a boon, Taj Mahal is also a curse on Agra, actually…


If you can change yourself, then you can change the world around you.

“One can learn new things at anytime in his/her life if he/she is willing to be a beginner. If you actually learn to like being a beginner, the whole world opens up to you”.

Learning is the process of acquiring new understanding, knowledge, behaviours, skills, values, attitudes, and preferences.

Last 15 months have been like a generational change. There has been so much lost, so much won and so much in between …

One thing that has been constant is the ability of the mankind to bear…


First few things that I learnt from my first boss at my first job.

Just after my post graduation, i got my first job at Lakhani India Limited and started a marketing and sales job. The job looked cushy but within three days i was shifted from the head office to the regional office, the job suddenly became more of sales than marketing. Lakhani was struggling in the biggest market of India, New Delhi ( the capital city of India ) and hence some of the management trainees were immediately shifted to New Delhi, paired with some stalwarts from head office and some dealer representatives from New Delhi region.

The combination was a deadly…

The world around us is going through a notorious concept called “Zohnerism”. Zohnerism — is all about twisting of simple facts to confuse people!

It’s pretty interesting to read the text below to understand what it is :

In 1997, 14 year old Nathan Zohner presented his science fair project to his classmates, seeking to ban a highly toxic chemical from its everyday use.

The chemical in question? Dihydrogen monoxide.

Throughout his presentation…


What we do now will open the window of opportunities, helping us in adapting and transforming for a better future.

I know all of us are looking forward to a fresh start. All of us are making New Year resolutions.

For me, the new year is about setting intentions/systems more than it’s about setting a list of rules I’ll break in two weeks. (Last year my intention was “bring stability to life,” which… LOL.)

We Indians are divided over many many things today than we ever were, but we can all agree that 2020 was tragic, terrifying and generally no…

The world has changed and because of global COVID-19 pandemic, people are restraining themselves to homes, making it very hard for hotels to attract the kind of traffic they are used to, especially during a festive season like Deepawali and winter holidays. But, instead of trying to bring the customers to hotels, hotels are bringing themselves closure to the customers by creating immersive 3D virtual tours with eCommerce to reinvent or improve the overall experience.

A 3D walkthrough enables your guests to experience your property as if they were really there, going far beyond photographs and 360 tours, helping your…


A thread on how Spalba can get you ahead of the curve and help you plan for the next decade.

Booking an event space is a tedious process, its slow, expensive and time consuming.

From searching, to exploring, to negotiating, to booking and to planning a venue, an event planner (corporates, agencies and individuals) can take months sometimes, may have to travel to multiple locations and communicate to remotely present clients. The lengthy time taken to close the sale results in loss of opportunities for hotels and it adds upto the cost for the event planners.

Today’s consumers mainly include…


This World Mental Health Day, learn how to be your whole self.

Time is so unnatural right now, we have lost all sense of continuance in our life. We no longer have any holidays, outings or changes of scenery to look forward to , only the repetitive cycle of the same bland emails to write and the same virus case count graphs to watch and the same harrowing scenes of Arnab Goswami’s debate to revisit day after day? Let me ask few questions ?

Do you have “Entrepreneurial fatigue ?

Do you have had “too much screen time”?

Are you…


If you want the rainbow, you have to deal with the rain.

No one said building a company is easy. But it’s time to be honest about how brutal it really is, and the price so many of us, founders secretly pay for it.

The entrepreneurial quest is not always about success, upside and happy exits. The journey, drive, intensity and risk that come with founding, funding, and growing a business can exact a tremendous financial, emotional and physical toll on an entrepreneur.

Sometimes it’s called “The Psychological Price of Entrepreneurship,” — “It’s like a man riding a lion. People look at him and think, this person’s really got it together! This…


How and Why we chose “Spalba” as a name for our new startup ?

“What’s in a name? that which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” — William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

In the play Juliet seems to argue that it does not matter that Romeo is from her family’s rival house of Montague, that is, that he is named “Montague”. The reference is often used to imply that the names of things do not affect what they really are. Juliet compares Romeo to a rose saying that if he were not named Romeo…
