The Journey is the Reward

Last day while returning home from Cochin, I met this guy, Shine. He is from my neighbourhood, I knew him for about 3 years. He was running his own PCB (Printed Circuit Board) manufacturing unit near my home.

He had about a dozen employees and was running it pretty well. However, when I tried contacting him for my college project last January, he was gone. I went to his factory, and it was closed down. I was told that he had to close down cuz of some sales tax issues.

iCon is a biography of Steve Jobs and tells the story of his journey with Apple, NeXT and Pixar. I was expecting to read more about Steve Jobs, the man, but it turned out to be more of Jobs as a Entrepreneur with flashes into his personal life here and there.

500 Days of Summer and 1 Day of Autumn

It was the engagement of one of my good friends sister (Peter Paul Pittappillil) which was good for the food (3 course with a wide array of deserts), meeting up with my school mates and the real part, picking up all the ‘eves’ from around the party (the collection was great) and that’s three sets of (bracket) in a ridiculously long sentence.

To double the awesomeness, instead of diving deep into my Sunday Sleep-of-the-Week, I decided to watch a movie and picked (500) Days of Summer.

An Opportunity to Meet 400 Young Indian Entrepreneurs

The title I had in my mind for this post was something like “An Opportunity to Meet 400 Young Entrepreneurs and Travel 10,000 kms through India”.

Meeting 400 cool people itself is awesome, so I figured that if I tell you the rest of it right in the title, you would probably won’t be able to handle the awesomeness ๐Ÿ˜›
