Similarly, in marketing, you email your blog links to your prospects/customers, expecting them to open, click, and read it. And when… Continue reading Be considerate while sharing knowledge
When you share an opinion publicly, you may have people who agree with you, disagree with you, or have absolutely no opinion.

But in the recent times, I feel that it has gone… Continue reading The problem with labeling people
We live in this world, making plans and acting as if we're going to stay here forever. We behave as if the people we love, hate, and can't forgive are going to stick around.

I started using Telegram 8 months ago. The reason I installed the app is to talk to my best friend. At first, I thought it's yet another messaging app with the same basic features. But my opinion changed as soon as I got introduced to its unmatched user experience. I'm not an expert in user… Continue reading Telegram and user experience
I always feel that there’s something wrong about how we consume the information we read online. We immediately believe what we read because the so-called 'experts write it.'
