There can’t be anything better than  interacting with 150+ young aspiring New India on entrepreneurship & gaining excellence on eve of 75th Republic Day at St Xavier’s college in #Ahmedabdad! 

Nadeem Jafri of @Heartymart, @jatin10 of @eChaiVentures and yours truly shared learnings & unlearnings of life.  

Three things we emphasised on 
- create opportunities for yourself, don’t wait for opportunities
-  be a OG in your chosen field. 
-  read, read and read. Be a Voice. 

🎉 𝗦𝘂𝗿𝗽𝗿𝗶𝘀𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗡𝗲𝘄𝘀 𝗔𝗹𝗲𝗿𝘁: 𝗟𝗶𝗻𝗸𝗲𝗱𝗜𝗻'𝘀 𝗧𝗼𝗽 𝗩𝗼𝗶𝗰𝗲 𝟮𝟬𝟮𝟰! 🎉

I just received some news that is as unexpected as finding an extra crumpled Rs 500 note in your dried shirt after washing– I've been named a LinkedIn Top Voice! Yes, you read that right. No, I didn't hack the system, and no, it's not a paid thing yet! :) 

First things first, a massive THANK YOU to everyone here. This recognition isn't just about my voice, but it's a testament to the incredible community we've built together. It's like being part of the world's most supportive book club, but instead of books, we share ideas, insights, and occasionally, bad jokes.

Unlike X, previously on twitter, I do post some sensible stuff here. But I will try to be more consistent as now I have a badge to take care of. 

I must admit, being called a "Top Voice" feels a bit exaggerated. But here we are, and I'm incredibly humbled and slightly bewildered.

This platform has been a treasure trove of learning, and I'm not just talking about the professional insights. I've learned that no matter how carefully you craft a post, there will always be at least one typo that 95% of commenters kindly ignore. And that no matter how serious the topic, there's always room for a light-hearted comment & and criticism that puts a smile on everyone's face.

So, what's next? Well, I promise to keep bringing my authentic self here – typos, opinions, and all. I'll continue to share, learn, and grow alongside each of you, and yes, I'll try to live up to this 'Top Voice' title without letting it go to my head ( yes, it happens). 

Let's keep making this platform a space for genuine connection and growth. Let me repeat "genuine connection."
