Working hard for Alternate Income


I was 24 when I read this book Rich Dad Poor Dad and it’s been 13 years!!! 

Before getting into the subject, let me give a brief about me!!!

I’m an entrepreneur managing 3 entities which are into Technology Services, Management Consulting and Coffee Business. 

Also I’m fairly doing good with my business!!!

But now where I keep failing for last 13 years is my efforts on creating residual income, which keeps coming even if I don’t work.

In these 13 years I’ve;

  • Purchased Properties
  • Invested in MF’s & Stocks
  • Did Angel Funding & Seed Funding 

After doing all these I found India to be over priced on Properties, MF’s & Stocks. Income from these investments are far less than what is showcased on the book. 

All I can make is the profits that comes from exits and not from Rent or Dividends!!

Also I’ve burned my fingers on Angel & Seed Funding because I made these investments even before the Startup boom and almost all the entities I invested are dead!!! 

But I always enjoyed the experience of being associated with a startup and diverse subject knowledge I gained!!!

With all these failed attempts I’ve come to the conclusion that India is not the right place for creating residual income.

Just looking for anyone who has followed Rich Dad Poor Dad recommendation and made it big in India or is India a wrong place for Rober Kiyosaki’s concepts??

Am expecting response from readers!!

Rule by Divide


To rule India, the Britishers exaggerated the Divide on caste, religion and language amongst the Indians, to rule the country and they did it successfully for almost two centuries…

Now even after 68 years of independence we have only increased the divide for political and personal gains for certain individuals!!

Our political system is divided on the lines of;

  • Religion
  • Caste
  • Language
  • Race
  • Leftist Ideology
  • Rightist Ideology
  • Socialism
  • Secularism
  • Atheisms
  • Rich
  • Poor 

And many more without my knowledge… 

Though the beauty of democracy is freedom of speech and dissents… The sad part is every opportunity is killed citing this divide…

This country deserves more than what it is today… The reason for growth stagnation is the divide… Also allowing India to integrate like America is simply a Political Suicide…

So, keeping my fingers to see if a Strong & Integrated India can be implemented!!

Irritating Staff at Toll Points


Getting irritated by the behaviour of toll point staffs…

Today started my drive down to Chennai from Pollachi… My toll started from Coimbatore L&T toll and the toll charge was ₹31 and I gave him ₹50…

The staff sitting on the booth asked for ₹1 or ₹2 or ₹5… When I said I didn’t have change, he made so much fuss & facial gestures before tendering the change…

In the next toll the toll cost is ₹80 & I gave ₹500… The toll staff here showed his frustration by asking what will he do if I give 500 bucks in the morning..

I told the second toll guy that even I’m frustrated paying Toll in spite of paying Road Tax, Income Tax, Service Tax, Sales Tax and many more taxes…

I asked if I’ve option to evade that toll? He said no choice… I told him two things and moved;

  1. He has no choice but to serve me..
  2. He is a public servant and he has to service politely…

Then in my 7th toll point the cost of toll was ₹47 and when I gave him ₹50 he tendered only ₹2… When I asked him for ₹1 he said he is not having change for ₹1…


I told him that is not my problem and I said I’m not moving without my ₹1… Then he went to next counter and got my change back… Again he gave me a staring look…

This is my 7 toll for the day and there were issues with 3 tolls and I’ve 4 more toll points cross… 

There are many other irritating things in tolls like;

  • They give very old/damaged notes as change.. When we ask for a replacement they show gestures…
  • When we accept old/damaged notes and offer the same in next tolls, mostly they deny accepting it…

I don’t have issues accepting such notes provided every toll accepts them…

Also the congestion caused at the toll points is another frustration where we are made to wait for a tax we pay..

These days I’ve accepted such situations and I’ve built an expertise to deal with this toll folks… When I see a person showing attitude I revert back by showing mine…

One experience with a toll staff who denied taking a damaged ₹10 note which I got from a previous toll.. The toll fee was ₹53 and I gave him ₹1000 and I kept returning the change he offered me and frustrated him for 30 min… 

Though I had to become a nuisance for other travellers I wanted to do it to teach them a lesson…

I made the manager attend me and apologise on behalf of the staff… Then I wrote a formal complaint and moved..

I’m not sure if they moved my complaint… It’s been more than 6 months and I got no response from NHAI or the firm which got the contract to operate the Toll…

I’m planning to write a letter to about my experience to Nitin Gadkari under who’s ministry Highway Department comes… Let’s see how the ministry responds..

A letter that got us restrooms in train!!



Interesting letter written more than 100 years back..

Okhil Babu wrote this letter to the Sahibganj divisional railway officer in 1909. It is on display at the Railway Museum in New Delhi. It was also reproduced under the caption Travellers ales in the Far Eastern Economic Review.

Any guesses why this letter is of Historic Value?
It led to the introduction of TOILETS in trains in India…!!!!

So no idea is stupid.
