My Many Selves

I tend to write a little more philosophy. And that is no accident. Though my day job requires me to dabble in the world of product management, technology trends, business priorities and overseeing delivery, what really gets me going is my love of all things spiritual and philosophical

The story of how I, of all people, came to be associated with philosophy and the other muses, has to be told sometime but we shall defer this for now in the interests of not losing my two readers!

I have been enriched immeasurably by these varied interests. But too much variety in topics on a blog leads nowhere. I hope to be of some practical utility to my readers and not just take them on a mind trip always.

With that I have decided to restrict this blog to my musings on all non-philosophical and non-spiritual topics. So I shall write about work, technology, social media, people, strategy etc out here.

My old posts that talk about philosophy etc will remain here though. If there are topics that refuse to be pigeon-holed into either of these blogs, I shall cross post them. 

Please visit the new blog, The Many Selves, here. And do subscribe to the feed here.

Many Selves – The Inaugural Post

I am a blogger based out of Bangalore, India.

My old blog was getting a little too cluttered- with Sri Aurobindo, Terrorists and Singularity jostling for space on a single browser window.

Hence I decided to have start this new blog, dedicated to topics that make up our sense of self, our aspirations and our highest goals.

Why the name “The Many Selves” ? –  I have noticed that what we are in our normal moments is only an aggregation of the many facets of us hidden inside. We are either the result of one predominating tendency, or a handful of them coming together to deliver a summed up experience.

Just as our emotional selves has its ups and downs, like us feeling peppy or depressed at different points of time, the notion of what we are also changes over a period of time. Or even many times within the same day.

I believe we become what we are.

But there is no single clear route by which we have arrived here. And our destinations too will not be reached in a known manner.

Regardless, the way to proceed forward in any endeavor is to confront, harness and utilize these individual selves.

The new blog will be a place where I share my thoughts and insights pertaining to this goal of harmonizing and letting the aggregate self move forward.

And in sharing these thoughts I hope you would take comfort in the fact that you are not alone in your inner challenges.
