As the vaccination rates are going up in many countries, the governments are loosening the restrictions for covid-19 measures, including opening up office spaces. I was curious to know if the hybrid work (a blend of on-site and remote work) will be the direction for numerous organizations; what would be the best days to work?
Indeed, there will be a difference of opinion on which days are best to work. For example, the Economist had run a report stating that many employers prefer to give remote work options any day except Monday and Friday.
To prevent employees from doing…
Projects are tricky, time-bound, and complex. Moreover, there are a lot of moving parts here and there to manage it. That’s why approximately 70% of the organizations have suffered at least one project failure in their last 12 months.
I managed several multi-million dollar projects throughout my career journey, primarily for fast-moving consumer goods. One of my projects was to expand distribution to 39k additional outlets, adding 650 logistics and 750+ people. Other projects included brand launch campaigns, merchandising campaigns, business plan escalation, national conference, etc.
Some projects were successful, few of the projects were failures. …
I believe the greatest woodworker is mother Earth herself. We, humans, are a mere interpreter on how to conduct woodwork. Yet, mother Earth contains nature as its part. So, whenever I have the opportunity, I seek to roam in nature’s plateau and freshen up my mind with its gentle touch.
For the last couple of days, my wife and I are exploring different conservation areas. A walk with the blessing of nature makes it more worthwhile and tranquil.
And, so, we went for another exploration around our adjacent area. This time, it was the Heber Down Conservation Area.
Spoiler Alert: I have mentioned a few of the events in short notes inside the content. All quotes are from ‘We Should All Be Feminists,’ by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.
A couple of weeks ago, my partner ordered some new books on Amazon. She told me to read it first, as she heard great reviews about this book.
A bit reluctant, I started reading the book. I finished it within 1.5 hours (48 pages long), as I couldn’t leave it unfinished.
In this book, Adichie uniquely portrayed gender discrimination and feminism through her journey. In her words, she shed light on…
‘What’s next?’ — My partner asked me to know where we would be heading as part of our daily outdoor exploration initiative.
After visiting Frenchman’s Bay, Purple Woods Conservation Area, and Seaton hiking trail, her expectation went high, and so was mine. And, after half an hour of net-surfing, we decided to go to Lynde Shores Conservation Area.
Lynde Shores Conservation Area is a 272-hectare area, established in 1972, well-known for wildlife viewing opportunities. The site is an excellent habitat for birds, including Black-capped Chickadees, White-Breasted Nuthatch, Blue Jay, Trumpeter Swan, Mallard, etc. …
Hello, Wonderful people around the globe,
I sincerely hope that you all are well and safe in your respective places.
It is after a while, I guess. Our editors took a break on the first two weeks of July (except for some earlier scheduled projects). It was a necessity to safeguard our mental strength. During the last 1.5 years, we had our ups and downs in our lives, be it professional or personal. Incidents took place; trauma crawled in; however, well-wishes, prayers, and patience helped to stay strong and move ahead.
I always utter, “stay safe, stay healthy.” And share…
I saw you before
from an untouchable distance, digital landscape colors
but once I stood in front of you
the grandness stunned me
circled by an exuberant charisma
a gentle muse and spirit clasped my heart
the turquoise blend with the ice-top mountains,
a lively forest in green postures
while blue sky smiled from the above
uttering a delicate song in quiet, sublime lyrics,
some say a picture speaks of a thousand words,
I say thousands of pictures might not even utter a glimpse of you
a flawless landscape in radiant delights.
I took a leave of absence from work…
I had this memory, the dream of capturing this image while looking on the road in front of my balcony. I saw a car with loud music, joyful cheers, and a happy gloat, just crossing my home in recent times. A loud presence of life, enjoying to the fullest, taking each bite of joy, being at the top of the world. Soaking the full glory of life, glowing into happiness dance, musing into the complete pleasant life. And, I saw an ambulance, with a siren, crossing the loud-musical car on an emergency call. To save a human, to pull a…
Hi, Wonderful People around the world,
I hope you all are having a safe and healthy time in your places. Today is June 30, 2021, and I’m writing this note in a cheerful mood.
The summer in Canada is here! From my window, I can feel the glimpse of the sunlight, with a cheerful vibe around. The vaccination is going in full throttle. People are also trying to adhere to the remaining lockdown measures, as we don’t want to have with the increasing infection trend.
It is slow but a gradual progression overall. I’m taking full utilization of the summertime…
Pub Crawl is a cross-publication collaboration. More about it here, announced on our last newsletter.
Place: Delhi, the capital of India.
It was a hot summer season, where the sun shined in its full glory and the rays piercing human skin with its harsh heat waves.
Four travelers, just started one of their wishful adventures, that started from Delhi and ended in Kashmir. The same four travelers, who didn’t have this sort of weather experience, felt the full-blown hit (or, should I say, heat).
Delhi, an ancient city with diverse cultural and historical attachments, was required to be discovered in…
