Gaurang's Thoughts

My experience with macOS Big Sur

My experience with macOS Big Sur


Indeed a great operating system but it has its own set of flaws. the most important one is the issue with QuickTime player. If you are recording screen for longer period of duration, then the files recorded may get corrupted because of possible memory constraints. 


One thing that I liked about QuickTime Player is that it auto saves the recording file but when it gets corrupted, it won’t play significant part of the video which is a shame. 

Work life - missing the mentor/ boss - do you>

After leaving a firm, do you miss your boss/ manager?


A good manager can make you shine — mentors you, brings best of you.


For me it was DB — looking forward to working again with my ex-boss 



Some of my profound learnings in managing relationships

There will be many people you would start admiring and adoring in your life, as mentor or role model. It's one of the greatest fee;omgs after all -- to look upto someone. 

At times, what would happen is, your political views/ religious beliefs on any topic may differe greatly. It's okay to have those differences. Accept the fact that it happens and the maturity is in to never discuss on that topic. That would ensure that the relationship would continue to be amicable which otherwise would get strainged over time and the charm in the relationship will get lost. 

Population density and its effect on economy

Years ago, I got curious about a thought, why Mumbai (being my favourite cities) is a land of opportunities and dreams. 

One of the conclusions of my random thoughts was that because it is so dense with millions of people around, no one can starve really if one provides some kind of value, even if that's to sell a thing as small as a Vada Pav. 

As the cities are now growing vertically, at a single point, as a service provider/ product seller, you will have masses to pitch and sell your services to. That would result in potentially huge influx of revenue and the pursuit of your entrepreneurial journey would get a wind and direction. 

What do you think could be other reasons for dense cities to flourish more? 

Remembering Jagriti Yatra 2013 days

Jagriti Yatra is one of the most events in India that brings ~450 brightest minds along in a train that runs for 14 days across India, giving a glimpse of how large and beautiful our nation is, how people belonging to varied cultures live. 

I spotted this chart during my journey which one of the participants had made. It truly captured the essence of Jagriti Yatra and also the countless memories that we all had made together.
