What you may not have thought while watching “The Social Network”

16 Nov

I saw “The Social Network” yesterday. Brings out quite fiercely that what we are is sometimes a result of some kind of occasional hate or apathy or revengeful nature we have due to some incident

Facebook was an instant success, because it gave me power to be boastful about myself without talking much by my mouth.
You could literally say what you wanted to say on it, keeping a lot of what you are intact.
You could show a thousand people what you are doing in a single click

Social network is the defining entity. FB success adheres to the fact that we are constantly in need of attention.

We are attention seekers by default.
We want recognition, acceptance and confirmation.
This applies not only to those who have internet access, but also to everybody else. Anyways, internet did not happen at first. We happened and our wants and needs happened

Being an entrepreneur takes guts and lot of stomach to digest the ill side effects of it. If Mark had to start his own, he would dot it anyways.

If the Winklewoss’s were waiting for 4 weeks (or whatever) for Mark to get back on something concrete, then they were either absolutely crazy or absolutely intelligent enough, to have guaged that Mark has already stolen the idea and working on something of his own
They could either confront Mark any how at earlier stages or could wait for the baby to get born and then ask for a partial claim on the grounds of IP theft

I personally felt that Mark was a victim of the 2nd situation explained above

Nevertheless, movie was very much focused on the lawsuit showing flashbacks of the journey of Mark while developing. But doesn’t leave a huge mark on your minds on the aspect of entrepreneurship

A better movie would be our own "Rocket Singh" that has all the elements of being a pro-entrepreneur movie.

TSN is still one of the best combination of out-of-the-court settlement drama and journey of a high-school grad who built something.

Talk less Do more

Talk less
Do more
Keep doing
You will get results
One day
Small big no matter
Keep going
Tread the way
Walk the road
Take a leap of faith
Take people alongwith
Pick them up along the path
Make them learn, learn from them
Do mistakes, analyse them
Cherish their existence
Thank them for having visited once
Work to create value
Value what you are doing
Cherish the company of good people
Who understand you
Who share your success and your failures
Who understand why you do what you do

Rajanikanth Fever – One Liners

1 Nov

Every once in a big big while, there comes this one person, actor and a legend who people just idolize for all the fun he does on camera

These days this idol is Rajanikanth – the undeniably, undisputed king of all comic action flicks that are made in India

Now I am not a fan of him, nor do I idolize him. But like everybody else, I have taken a special liking to his comic action flicks and dialogue scenes. More than that the long running list of Rajanikanth-Idolizing one liners that have taken a leap these days after release of Robot

There are these mails floating around that states “100 things about Rajanikanth”

If you are reading this, I don’t need to tell you to go and read it, as you have already read it. If you haven’t, you have no right to read this post

 

Today after visiting Palladium, I was coming back and sitting in the train I felt like creating some new ones and adding to the list. I know this is a worthless job but it titillates me and made me happy

So here are few of them:

Indian Railways will soon be adding a new bogie to all its trains which will be for ONLY RAJNIKANTH

When rajnikant travels abroad, he doesn’t need a visa. He automatically becomes the citizen of that country

By 2011, McD will start selling McRajani for Rs.-20 and BigBazaar will start selling at "Every day Rajani price"

In 2020 world’s best selling book would be authored by Rajanikanth and it will be called "How to become Rajanikanth"

A hundred years from now, people will fight over a big issue at that time : "The Rajanikanth Janma Bhoomi"
