Tale of two WHYs | Reason “Purpose” serves no purpose

Over the past decade or so, there has been a lot of focus on the word “Why”. There have been thoughts that one should try to find their own “Why” or “Purpose”. Is that the journey you have taken? How have you fared in that endeavour? Have you managed to find your Purpose? What has […]

Google vs ChatGPT | Shopper vs Cook | The Role of Intent

ChatGPT, this very techie-sounding word, came to my attention only a few weeks ago. I did not make much of this initially until all of my social media feeds started getting flooded by thoughts/articles/videos, and every type of content possible on how wonderful this was.

Aek Life- One Chance to Live: A perspective by Ankur Shiv Bhandari
