TRYING IS HARD AND WHY YODA SHOULD SHOVE IT

August 21st, 2008

This week in Indu’s life thanks Winston Churchill and Esther Dyson.

Esther for saying “Always make new mistakes.” And Churchill for saying what the graffiti on this phone booth in Venice, CA says.

Also the person who said “Anything worth doing is worth doing badly.”

I kind of love that and I think if you’ve tried something hard you know exactly what that means. You can’t be self conscious about looking stupid if you are taking a risk and starting a start-up is about as exposed and illogically risky as it gets.

INDIA CELEBRATES HER INDEPENDENT SPIRIT

August 14th, 2008

August 15, 1947 is a milestone in Indian history but I can’t bring myself to call it Independence Day. India as a place, a people and a construct has been a powerful influence on global trade, culture, religion, academic study and philosophy for thousands of years. To define its “independence” as something that started 60 years ago seems inadequate. Nevertheless, I’m in awe of the courage it took to overturn centuries of outside rule. It was a time of pain and bloodshed too. Today I feel respect and pride. (Pics of Gandhi and Nehru from 1946 courtesy of Rhoda D’sa.)
