We love traveling, meeting new people, appreciating different cultures, enjoying different cuisines and learning something new from every country that we visit. My work as well as personal travel has taken me to 31 countries & over 230 cities/towns/villages (many in India). And many of the small places are not yet there on TripAdvisor mapping tool. 😉

My goal is to visit over 100 countries – I don’t know how long its going to take but I’m for sure looking forward to reaching that number in next 8-10 years. Lets see how that goes.

Facebook Status & Speed of Responses

As I interact with people, clients, colleagues, technologies, concepts etc… I end up developing thoughts – I end up developing ideas – I get inspired by other people – I sometimes also get desperate… and I reflect that on my status on Facebook/Twitter/Linkedin/IMs etc. Facebook status updates have always fascinated me and I learn a lot from them. They help me in knowing moods, morale, problems, excitement, opportunities, failures, success stories and even random thoughts. People intentionally or unintentionally send out a message to their network and the beauty is that network notices – and even reacts in some cases. 

I’m amazed to see how quickly people react. I came out of a discussion on Research & Consumer Insights and I updated my status “to steal ideas from one person is plagiarism; to steal from many is research or insight….” – In no time (literally few mins) I had two responses – one from Indonesia and one from California – funny one from Ravi Bhaya (taking a pun on our friend Ranga – head of insights & analytics at Starcom MediaVest Group) and serious one questioning my thought (from my senior from b-school and good friend Purnima – all time Dumb C champion).

Thank you Network for your attention to my Random (often stupid) thoughts.
