Mumbai is resonant with Lord Ganpati’s immersion processions on alternate days! It sure is festive time in my city. I have some travelling to do from tonight till Saturday so going to miss out the tenth day celebrations!
Off to Bangalore this evening to be with a big multinational company involved in food processing industry for an immersion day, the whole of tomorrow, understanding what they do, how they do it before I begin my work with them. So, then on early Friday morning, that is Sept 28th, a smooth ride of about 4-5 hours by road to Nasik, the ‘grape city’ which everyone first and foremost associate with Shirdi. I have a live interactive show for the audience of Dainik Divya Marathi. It is being held at Hotel Express Inn situated at Mumbai-Agra Road, Pathardi Phata. Quite a central location and I start at 2.30 pm. What’s the plan? Fusion recipes like I said but just to get the appetite whetted something with pasta, some thing to do with pav bhaji and cake and pizza! Innovating desserts like Motichoor Phirni and a novel Pav Bhaji Biryani awaits you! It will be a creative, interactive and fun filled time on stage! Entry is by invitation only.
From Nasik off to Delhi straightaway! Attending the TiEcon Delhi 2012 on Saturday 29th Sept at Hotel Taj Palace. TiEcon is one of the world’s largest conferences for entrepreneurs operating on their motto of ‘Entrepreneurship – Thriving in Chaos’. I have a special slot from 2.15 pm to 3 pm in what they call the Rapid Fire session titled ‘Profit and pride – Brand stories’. It will be an interactive, informal and engaging 45 minutes in which I am free to relate my experiences and anecdotes from my entrepreneurial journey. Then in the following half hour I have to give a keynote address on my personal entrepreneurial journey – great platform to share my key moments in hindsight, what has impacted me, best memories etc. I have to condense my life’s journey in a capsule of 15-20 minutes and have some serious script writing lying ahead for me!
So as I go back to that file on my computer let me wish you all a Happy Anant Chaturdashi!
Till we connect again
