An 'Ex' makes a comeback !

During one of my recent corporate flights, I happened to connect with an e-commerce industry veteran and out of the many things that we spoke about, Shopclues was one of them.

While I try myself to be away from the stories or the controversies that surround Shopclues today, I couldn't help but think can two people, married or at one point seeing each other, be in a professional work space or a similar ecosystem. In the case of Shopclues, Radhika and Sandeep or Sanjay!

The flight was a new feeling and while the honorary leader went for an early sleep, I thought of writing and sharing my thoughts. The flight attendant was sweet enough to get me my hot chocolate.





Before jumping onto an answer, if I can put myself to the test, how would I react. This is fictional ;) , Karan I tell you!

Hypothetically, if me and my ex are in a similar work ecosystem or by the nature of our work again start interacting it will be a not so pleasant scenario. Deep down, a part of us has died and the other has moved on. For both. 

No matter what and where is our current relationship headed, its tough to be again in the same space. We are humans after all and not that easy to move on. 

But this is a personal side. 

If you are a professional, understand and appreciate that its the work that made you two come together and both of you should play to your strengths and get things moving and running at ease.

Whatever has happened is past and the present needs you two to work together for a larger good. At one point in time you may have had strong feelings for each other but its perfectly fine to be mature enough to move ahead and be happy for the other person.

Strong people rarely have an easy past.Surrender to what is. Let go of what was. Have faith in what will be.

I have learnt, out of the many things, that never let your emotions overpower your intelligence. The same rule holds ground here as well.

The view outside of the night sky with shimmering lights is always a beautiful sight. The world is a nice place and your outlook can make your space and the world around you much better....

Being an Indian Police Service Officer - an IPS

Everytime I watch a movie , like  - Sarfarosh , Gangaajal or Sehar , all I want to be , in this life is - an IPS officer. 

You may think its the power and the pride that comes with the post which an IPS officer holds or some of you may say its the sheer status the word IPS reflects upon . The perks like most of us know , is having an unprecedented power , a lal-batti , a huge team which does ' Jai Hind ' and a whole lot of a new world .




Given, I have had a good fortune to be in a family of IPS and know and understand from them what is it being an IPS officer most of the above mentioned movies or may be the image we tend paint in our minds is very different from what actually is an IPS officer and what all does he undergoes to be one.

I would put my take on this and share with you all my thoughts on what is a life of an IPS .

Studying is just a part of it . The civil services examination is considered not only the toughest in Indian competitive examination scenarios but also one o…

10 things to do in Kodaikanal

There is something about rains and open spaces that make me a little more than hilarious . And not only me , couple of others as well . 

Today , rains in Delhi bought back the festive cheer killing the week long SMOG clouding all around Delhi / NCR . As I up for an early morning catch-up breakfast with a few special folks , we decided let's step out and drive away to a place far from the traffic snarls yet has a festive cheer .

The thought came to go to Kodaikanal . While you may think I am crazy and my rest of the gang mad but then this is how life should be - unplanned , unbiased and unimaginable yet positive . 




Known world over as the princess of hill stations this place has made me fall in love all over again . My first thought on reaching here was , this can't be in India . This has to be a foreign location.   Pristine surrounding ,  lovely people to talk to and spend time with and not to forget the bicycles that can be rented to take a ride or two around the famous Kodaikan…

Travel Diaries & more - Make it count

Everytime I travel, I look forward to meeting new people. New places as well can be explored but what is home without humans!?
Off late, besides the flights getting delayed, I like to reach the airport ahead of my scheduled departure timing & sit around in the lounge & read or chit-chat. Works for me.
Last week was fun & yet a bit hectic. During one of my lounge visits I hosted a dear friend ( though exactly for 15 minutes ) for a small #CoffeewithKaran session & off he had to go. In those 15 minutes we spoke in true blue corporate styles. First 5 minutes updates from him and I sipped my hot chocolate and then the next 5 minutes updates from my side.  The remaining 5 minutes were spent on discussing  ' better than before'  .
During my flight I met an amazing doctoral student or a fellowship candidate as she likes to be described. She was pursing her close 4 years doctor fellowship from a premium institute and such was her focus that she decided not to get married …
