Woke feeling quite tired — probably because of all those interview sessions. Had an hour long conversation with Anand Davichan regarding entrepreneurship route. These are a few highlights from the conversation:
- Building one’s starting org is better in city of familiarity initially until the foundation is set.
- The freedom of exploration in dimensions is immensely fulfilling.
Visited the doctor afterwards
Visited Anands work place and interacted with Arun Phillip of 2001 batch to discuss about Entrepreneurship and the possibility of seriously considering it in my career moving forward.
He clarified several of my doubts ranging from exposure in people, dimensions beyond tech skills and the need to prioritize Emotional Quotient. Decided to work with them for three months and see how fulfilling the experience turns out to be.

Kept the phone away. Got to work by afternoon.
Woke up at 6 AM and ready to get work done. Planning to have one on one conversations with the students of batch — 23 about how to maximize their college time. I hope it’ll help them in the years to come. This is a presentation in progress to cover the same points.
Feeling good about our juniors — especially the academic aspect of growth. Fingers crossed!
