It’s prescience. And then it’s removing every obstacle to the ferocious clarity of your vision: incumbents, regulations, folkways, people. Can you not just see the future but summon it?
This line from NewYoker article I was reading on Marc Andersson and Tech founders/VCs caught my attention.
It best reflected the Version 2.0 I’m feeling of myself since Sept’ 2020. That is , since the initial days of lockdown wore on and every habit of life was disrupted and you start questioning maybe every thing you believed earlier was bullshit. Maybe you were all bullshit.
Since then I rapidly went ahead…
After I became a farmer, and got cows for the love of them and as a part of Bharadwaja Anartiya Gurukulam, I stumbled into making ghee.
A vast cottage industry of ‘A2 Ghee’ marketing has gone online from Insta to every social media.
However the fakery is unimaginable — cramped cattle barns, constantly tied cows, maximising milsching, quick turnaround through aritificial insemination , feeding single type of fodder , every other bad practice associated with industrial farming is also there in ‘dairy entrepreneurship’
But over last 6 months of being…
Just returned from a week long stay on farm. Three months back I had seeded some Ashwagandha and Moringa. Both have thrived and it’s a great pleasure to see these yellow seeds.
Also Shatavari has come up
It is a great pleasure to see an industrially cultivated farm slowly coming back to life with real and diverse plants. Our cows on Anahata Farm have produced a mini mountain of dung which is soon going into the soil.
Looking at constant flutter of butterflies on these herb plants, I had an idea. I’m going to run a channel of…

Experience from visiting Gandhinagar Govt. Nursery — Van Chetana, last year suggests you got to plan picking up all the saplings long before actual rains arrive. And so I have begun planning early this year.
This here is the pond and my land right next to it, both yellow and green patches. And I’m planning now to plant this with trees I research below.
This is a story of why we moved to a new identity NativeOrigin.
For about two years now, our identity was mostly around Bharadwaja Anartiya Gurukulam & Gaushala where we focus on Vaidika education and maintaining cows and our farm was called AnahataFarm.
We grew our own cow feed and generally kept happy cows. The idea of ghee was only to support our Gurukulam. We begin selling our A2 Cow Ghee through AnahataFarm.in
But as I made our first Ashwagandha Ghritam, planted Ashwagandha, Shatavari, Brahmi on our farm to make these herb infused ghritams, as I made the first pits…
As happens with any product , and I’m glad with us its happening not as
pivoting but as
drawing board iteration , we’re arrived at the third version of the idea.
To build a high engagement trader community around actionable knowledge.
Technology has penetrated trading but only from speed to execution or analytics angle. However real world trader community is driven by perspectives, knowledge , experiences , mentorship and coaching. But all of this is offline…
A basic conviction I carry is ideas are cheap and you need to build products that express you ideas. And that is not easy.
I’ve been building
AriseBharat, first as an idea and then partly a product since the start of Jan’2019. Right now it’s been mothballed. But I’m about to revive it back. So I thought it will be a good idea to revisit what I was thinking.
Originally, around 2018 I was involved with Vaidika Bharata in a manuscript scanning project that funded and it was out come out as The Takshashila Project (more on that product later)…
This lockdown has been a great time for introspection on what we’re doing and why.
Back in 2017, after two years of running a product development firm , and running 10 years of business, I was drawing some conclusions on what it meant to be a ceo founder of your own business.
It was clear to me the ceo was the main HR guy , making sure right guys got into the business. …
