If you go over to my About page, you will see that the page introduces me as an Entrepreneur. Whereas, in real terms I am from the last 6 months a genuine employee of a manufacturing company and report to a boss who is in many ways just like yours.
I recently read that Vishal Sikka, is going to be the new CEO of Infosys. I didn’t care much until I read that his last drawn salary was Rs. 32 cr per annum. I delved into this man a bit more and learnt that he maintains a blog. Impressive, I thought. I went over to his blog and read something that made me think. Knowledge can be shared, wisdom can’t. Knowledge is learnt, but wisdom is self-learnt.

In the fleeting, sometimes bewildering, beautiful and vast existence that people call life, me and my mind floats around the day learning what Sikka calls knowledge. While being at it, I try to squeeze in and convert bits of knowledge into wisdom at times.
Some of the knowledge I have gathered along the rather eventful path that I have travelled, tells me that death comes in various forms. I have died many times a death that eventually relates to emotions and I presume, so have you.
Despite the many annoying nuances of being slapped by the reality of an employee life, I seize everyday opportunities to convert knowledge into wisdom and most importantly, I still choose to call myself an Entrepreneur. Dear folks, I assume, thats how I save myself from death everyday.
