Edward Snowden, who catapulted to fame in 2013 as the whistleblower by uncovering the National Security Agency’s (NSA) massive surveillance program, has had a bittersweet relationship with Blockchain.

“If poor people knew how rich people are there would be riots on the streets — Chris Rock”

One of the fascinating theories relating to the economy is by Karl Mark. I adore how naturally he explained such a sensitive and complex topic.

A few years ago, I might have found his ideas too rebellious for my taste. I thought that he is promoting unfair quality, and he is challenging hard work and destroying competitiveness. I don’t stand by all of his beliefs, but we can’t deny the highly uneven income gap between the classes.

Hence, I want to point…

When we browsed through these books for the first time, we read them as they were. We used to read these texts for just a straight storyline or as a form of entertainment. As a result, we could not connect with the more profound meaning and read between the lines.

Our interpretations were crooked and limited, And our tiny heads did not have the potential to process information. But now we have the experience of a well-lived life that gives us a reformed and diverse perspective. …

It was a Monday morning during the lockdown era of the pandemic where I was lounging like a sloth till 2 am, and my grandmother just got off from the phone after her very regular and religious round of calls with family and friends.

I know it lowers my coolness quotient, but it’s my guilty pleasure to overhear her gossiping. I pretend I am not interested, but Oh boy! The lady has a better social life than me. PS: It was pandemic, and this how I chose to retain my sanity (so don’t judge).

So one day, after one of…

Significant or not, but predictions are confusing and amusing at the same time. Fortune telling is a lot bigger industry than you would imagine —while some people do it for the thrill (experimental purpose) of it, others do it for its assuring effect or just the mere impatience and anxiety for the future.

Ratatouille

Don’t take credit for what you didn’t do and find ways to make it happen

Ratatouille touches on a highly prevalent practice in the corporate world, i.e., credit stealing. These thieves are low on ethics, and they might build a fortune by stepping and crushing true calibre, but they never earn an ounce of respect.

Alfredo was the real rat for stealing and thinking no one would know his conniving plans.

The word competition or contest can be daunting to most of us, but we can’t overlook the opportunities and confidence boost they can give us. I am myself one of those people who get anxious just by thinking of putting myself out there and facing criticism or failure. Yet, despite this, I have been fascinated by the idea of recognition and awards — it’s a different poison altogether.
