Hello Rohan, recommendations and references are extremely important for me and I am pretty sure this is universal.
I have a very basic quest......
I work at the intersection of design, brand and technology. Over the last few years, I have added mindfulness to the mix in an attempt to understand how we can be the best version of ourselves.
A closet geek, I started my career with Infosys when they were just starting up. I was one of two partners at Ray+Keshavan, a brand and design consultancy, before its acquisition by WPP-owned Brand Union¬†in 2006. I co-founded KineticGlue, a social enterprise platform that was acquired by BMC Software in 2013.¬†I am currently co-founder at startup No 3, which will bring two unique brands from India to global markets. Varana, an East-meets-West fashion and lifestyle brand (www.varanaworld.com) and Almora, a personal care brand based on Contemporary Ayurveda (www.almorabotanica.com). I am also an active angel investor and advisor with Kstart, Kalaari Capital’s seed stage fund.
What we need right now are less ivory-tower discussions and more voices from the trenches. This site is an attempt to share whatever knowledge I have gained. Be it branding or mindfulness and meditation, the caveat is that it must be something I have actually practiced and not mere theory.¬†¬†If you have a question, send it in and I’ll do my best to answer it.
