Thought Garage : My Books, Social and Business Ideas
Thought Garage is my personal blog featuring seemingly ramblings and dabblings, but otherwise quite invaluable insights. About software, India, technology, politics and Entrepreneurship. And a little bit about how the world could be a better place if it ever listens to what I say.
Here are some thought lines that I have been working on for some time, which are set to be released as Books:
- The Road Not Yet Taken : My tray of Ideas/thoughts on how to make Democracy in India really work.
- The Off-beat Investing : An accidental investor’s game plan of making sense and money using often written off investing strategies/tips/tricks.
- In-Vested Interests: Thoughts on how capitalism influences human behavior.
- The Silver Lining : Getting real with developing Cloud Applications.
- Steps.NET : Strategies for Winning in the market place and realizing Career aspirations with .NET Technologies
Here are some of my social and/or business Ideas that ever sprung into life. Luckily, some of them were already realized while I am still pursuing most of the rest. Will add more information about each idea shortly so that anybody interested can pursue or join.
