Tryst With Destiny

Yesterday night, at about 12am I was reading Nehru’s Independence speech – Tryst With Destiny. The same time when it was being delivered by Pandit Nehru 66 years back!  What a remarkable speech it is!

I feel ashamed that I didn’t read it earlier!

If you haven’t read it yet then go,  read it first. Here you’ll find it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tryst_with_Destiny

There is also a very short but original video of the speech – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1wUcw8Ufx_Y

Jai Hind.

3 days in IIM Ahmedabad…speaker & jury for AppFest 2013

So I was in IIM Ahmedabad for AppFest 2013. The event was a huge success. About 600-700 young minds participated in the event.

On the first day there were lot of talks on mobility and gaming. The topic assigned to me was – Rise of casual/social games.

Second day was hackathon & challengethon. Guys started coding at 9.30am in the morning for straight 24 hrs till 9.30am next day. It was great to see their energy and passion. True, energy is contagious.

These sleep deprived participants had to present their apps on the third day in front of jury. Each team had 3 minutes to do presentation.
