There are many elements of a conversation, but I believe, the important ones are:
- Atleast 2 OR more people
- & Assumptions
- PERSONAL ASPIRATIONS
And I believe, everything is interesting… If we care about it enough, especially conversations.
How do we express ourselves online is changing at a much faster pace that the behaviors have changed in the hindsight and most didn’t even realize. I seriously believe that Everything is right there in the hindsight, we just need to look close enough.
Expressions got added to the conversations when we had smileys, emojis, gifs and it helped us express ourselves in a much better manner than the only text conversations.

I am not sure if you’d agree but smileys, emojis & gifs have a language of their own. Needless to say, the more we can express ourselves, the more we are able to connect with the people.
I am usually in the vulnerable phase so as to be able to push my limits. Yes, I believe that being vulnerable is the key to a lot of things including connecting with the people & building a super team that goes places.
I believe, Every conversation has some assumptions. If you are curious about that, please check out this interesting podcast by HiddenBrain.org
Well, I am in a critical phase where my conversations will set the course of time from here. Why? Because I recently joined this organization of which I’ve been a fanboy since the inception of time.
An interesting point is that the rocketship I landed on is heading for a multiverse where people love to express themselves, online. Yes, you read that right.
Yes, it’s a larger than the life experience & a responsibility.
It’s more of a responsibility because those who are just outside the current sphere are still struggling to use the mobile phones to express themselves.
It’s a responsibility because-
- Mobile phone is still a struggle for most of the population out there, especially our parents. WE NEED TO CARE ABOUT THEM MORE THAN OURSELVES.
- Those who know how to do what they want to do should have the best of all the worlds… Customizable. Note that, most do not customize.
- & then there are those who don’t know what they want.
Can we be fair to all of them? Only time will tell.
Here is the thing: There is always a seat on the rocketship for the worthy & those who aspire to be mission-oriented.
Do checkout the open roles here & reach out, let’s build a piece of art together, for the masses that stays for the decades to come & becomes an enabler for the next generation.
Consider this as the preface. I will be writing the sequels to this article for a very long time. Watch this space.
