Nish — you had the balls to say it.

Thanks Ronnie,

Yes I have balls dipped in stupidity to have opened up the Pandora’s Box. Startup people, the kind I described, seem to have a false sense of entitlement — that they are somehow better than everyone else. That they took the proverbial risk and hence, the world owes them something. No matter how inconsequential their so-called idea is.

Coming back to what you said — the main aim of this article was to hear back from people who’ve seen the ‘inside’ of this ecosystem. And those who could present a balanced viewpoint without turning defensive in the ‘f*ck you, you know nothing’ kind of a way. So please go ahead and add in your thoughts. There’s atleast one person (me) who wants to hear them.
