InsideSalesBox is a startup within Drishti. So everything started afresh – market, product, team, product management and everything else. Until a few months ago, the discussions between the devs and PM used to frequently revolve around the roles, responsibilities and accountability of the team. We started referring to the tons of Internet articles on agile teams … Continue reading And we fell in love with Agile
What do Albert Einstein, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Mahatma Gandhi, Eleanor Roosevelt, Charles Darwin, J.K. Rowling, and Rosa Parks have in common? They are all people who made an impact on the world. They are also perceived as introverts. In previous centuries our culture valued quiet integrity and introspection. However, in today’s culture the emphasis … Continue reading The hidden power of Introverts
It’s the year of Leapers, can it be better? Folk traditions count it as unlucky for several reason around the world. I would say that we should not blame luck for the hard work put in by us towards discrimination, or hatred or even mother nature.

Fond of activities involving a rush, a thrust of adrenaline, I recently developed an interest for Trekking. It may sound weird when I would tell you that my native town is located in Himachal – an Indian state acing @tourism for its majestic heights. Earlier, we just considered walking down the hill a usual task. … Continue reading Trekking: The Ultimate Passion
Remember that feeling when you last walked of the examination hall. Remember guessing the questions that would follow before the paper started. Your knowledge about the subject was inversely proportional to the sleep you gained previous night. Everything followed all these years and we just wished exams to always get over but never to start. … Continue reading Pariksha
The stories of Steve Jobs, Larry Page, Sergey Brin, Bill Gates had always been motivating.
