Its Friday evening.. end of another crazy week at Flipkart . Every day the numbers seem to explode, our market share increases, our service metrics improve, the vibe in the organization is electric. But for all that success, we have so much more to do. Service needs to get even better, we need to deliver even faster and go a lot farther. 

We will keep working on this and keep getting better. But ultimately for all these numbers, the thing that matters most is you, the user. Its your love and affection that keeps us going. Dedicated to making things awesome for you.

Now going to go home and play with my kid :)
Have a great weekend friends.

Have been under the weather for the past couple of days. The only positive thing about being sick is that it gives you time to pause. To reflect on all the experiences that one is going through, all the things left behind, and all that is to come.

Somewhere along the way during our mid-thirties, we start noticing the flow of time as it keeps forging ahead towards inevitability. The twenties were just a blur for all purposes. This decade feels like sand slipping through my finger tips. We feel young, heck, we are young, but the hair has started to turn grey, injuries are taking a tad bit more to heal, we have enough life experiences to have an opinion on almost anything. The thirties is perhaps the first decade when you pause and look hard at the road you are on.

NEW FLIPKART DIGS!

My Chief of staff, Niket went around and took these photos on Day 1 of our move to the new Flipkart campus. The new digs are reflective of the vibe and energy of a company that is working hard to transform India, and create a workplace that stimulates innovation.

Every floor has a different theme. Personally I love floor 4 which is all about books. Though Floor 10 which is about cinema is a lot of fun too!

Pics below!

Its Sunday night and we are back after a long day driving around Bangalore. It has been overcast all day, and I am sitting in my study, a steady drizzle in the background overlaying the OST of Interstellar on my computer.

We are nearing the one month mark in Bangalore and feel like we are settling in very comfortably. Work is awesome, people are friendly, food is incredible, weather is glorious. There is nothing really to complain about. Bangalore has a lot of things going for it, but its beauty has been fading for a long time now. Sometimes if you look hard enough, the years fall apart and old Bangalore reveals itself. You can see past the wrinkles to see the beauty of past. But you have to know where to go, and what to look for. One such place is Taj West End in Central Bangalore.

Its Sunday night and we are back after a long day driving around Bangalore. It has been overcast all day, and I am sitting in my study, a steady drizzle in the background overlaying the OST of Interstellar on my computer.

We are nearing the one month mark in Bangalore and feel like we are settling in very comfortably. Work is awesome, people are friendly, food is incredible, weather is glorious. There is nothing really to complain about. Bangalore has a lot of things going for it, but its beauty has been fading for a long time now. Sometimes if you look hard enough, the years fall apart and old Bangalore reveals itself. You can see past the wrinkles to see the beauty of past. But you have to know where to go, and what to look for. One such place is Taj West End in Central Bangalore.


This has quickly become my favorite spot in the city (perhaps driven by the fact that I have not really seen much of the city yet). This is a huge swathe of land in the middle of city full of lush tropical foliage and birds. Feels like someone parted a veil and we are in colonial Bangalore. The air feels cooler, there are wisps of cloud around snaking creepers hanging from large century old trees. Its peaceful; the silence hangs from the trees and permeates everything. But then I realize that just walking around here is a privilege. That so many will never get to see this part of Bangalore.

Living in India is an exercise in contradiction. On one hand, I am keen to land safely, ensure my family lives a very comfortable, relaxed life and can transition to a new country (and yes, it is a new country after two decades out of it). On the other hand, I know I want to experience India like it is. This is not really India. The Truman show like gate communities, the 5 star hotels, the swanky clubs. They may look like the new India, but its not it.

There is an acute sense of living in a bubble. And I never felt that back in US. Maybe it was the same there, but it was never so obvious. Don’t get me wrong. Its a very comfortable and interesting bubble. But I know a bubble when I see one.

While I write all this, a streak of ants are carrying a dead spider across the room towards the balcony in some weird parody of the opening shot of an over-intellectualized art film. I guess try what we may, the tropics will outlast us and our antiseptic existence.

It will be ok after all. We will get there.

Its week 4 and it feels like an year. Weekdays are a blur of meetings, intense product conversations, trade-offs, negotiations, design workshops and what not. Here is what my day looked like today:

8am: Conversation with a recruiter about the interviews of the day

9am — 10am: Two phone screens with potential candidates. Both incredible, both passionate and both considering jumps across continents to be here at Flipkart.

10–10:30: Conversation about a potential partnership with an external company. The company is in the middle of a super hot sector in the middle of a super hot India bubble. Too frothy..its all too frothy..

10:30–11: HR Sync. Some drama, some warm and fuzzy issues, all good.

11–11:30: Another Candidate conversation. This one is a slam dunk. Need to fly her out.

10:30–11: HR Sync. Some drama, some warm and fuzzy issues, all good.

11–11:30: Another Candidate conversation. This one is a slam dunk. Need to fly her out.

11:30 — Noon: Discussion on the new campus and how to configure things. We are moving to a new campus which is already small for our needs. So while we plan for a new campus, we are planning for the campus after that. Well, wow.

Noon — 1pm: Product conversation on a new feature we want to launch. Launch dude, don’t waste a min. Launch and iterate!

1–1:15pm: Discussion on an new process we want to institute to make things more agile. Need-to-get-faster. Even faster. This place is about N times faster than Google. Sometimes it feels way too fast. Sometimes way too slow.

(15 min lunch somewhere in the middle between conversations. Food is delicious. Its 8 steel boxes each with a different item in it. Looks something like below!)


1:30–2pm: Work on a marketing effort which will allow us to acquire tons of new users. What’s the priority here? Should we do this? Or not? I don’t quite know. I am going to let the direct lead make the call. And step in only if asked.

2–2:30pm: Sync with PR team. Not going to say much more :P

2:30–3pm: Working time to catch up on things. I have 30mins to think through the next meeting which is a big one. This will be real product work.

3pm — 5pm: Work with the Product team to unblock a huge cross-functional project

5pm — 6pm: Listen to a cool new pitch on a new consumer idea

6pm — 7pm: Meeting a group of Infrastructure folks to discuss how to open up new capabilities in the system. Deep technical work. Real engineering stuff. Makes me feel alive again.

No two days are alike. No day is typical. Tomorrow is not going to be the same. The fun part of this job is that every day brings with its own challenges and excitement. The sad part is that I have not worked out in a month and need to figure that out!

Feels like the days when I had just started at Wharton. Those initial days felt like we were drinking fine wine through a firehose.

The firehose is full blast. The wine is fine.

Welcome to Flipkart — the craziest Internet company in the middle of a crazy, chaotic, loveable country that is India.

So we have finally moved lock, stock and barrel to Bangalore (well..the barrel is still on a ship somewhere). Its literally 5 days since we landed in the country and we are now bang in the middle of a full-on honeymoon period. Here are the top 5 highlights currently:

Weather — Its almost always between 70–85F. No sweat, no heat, no discomfort. Makes you feel like you are wasting your time going to work and should be out in a park somewhere!

*Rains *— I was born in India and one thing I miss when living in California were the torrential rains. Monsoons here are a sheet of wall that hit the streets. You can spend hours in the patio, listening to the pitter-patter of rain over warm cups of chai (or some good wine)

Mangoes — I am ODing on Mangoes currently. I eat them at Breakfast, eat them at Dinner, eat them for snacks. Banganpalli, Alphonso,Badami, Malboa, so ... more »

Mangoes — I am ODing on Mangoes currently. I eat them at Breakfast, eat them at Dinner, eat them for snacks. Banganpalli, Alphonso, Badami, Malboa, so many varieties, so many flavors!

Fresh Bananas from the neighbour’s garden — We literally landed and the next day, our new neighbours passed a bag of fresh bananas plucked from their backyard over the fence. Its not about the bananas, its about the incredible feeling of community. A friend (Canadian transplanted into Bangalore of all places) dropped by with a box of food knowing we are still struggling to cook at home. Folks keep calling to check on us. We feel incredibly loved here.

Convenience — I feel things get done in a different way in India, but they get done pretty efficiently if you know the system. Need refreshed ATM card, no worries, the bank guy will drop by your home. Need to get clothes laundered, text someone and they show up in 5 mins to pick it up. Need food, hundreds of deliver Apps abound.

Now I know we are observing India for a bit of a position of privilege and its probably not as convenient or seamless for everyone (that’s a topic for another day). But right now, we are happy to have chosen this adventure. We love the people and love the experience. Its great to move countries and reinvent yourselves.

Somewhere along the way, I went to US and over time, it became home (and is the place I will end up after I am done with my adventures). But today, it feels beautiful to be back here in India, rediscovering the country where I was born. India sometimes get a bit of flak and some of it is perhaps rightfully so, for there are abundant socio-economic issues here. But what we tend to overlook is that there is an earthiness to its people, that if you look beyond the creaking infrastructure and the mindless red tape, there is a society that is aspiring to succeed while it holds on to its sense of community and tradition.

More soon. Mangoes are waiting…

"Daddy, why do we have to sleep?"
"So you can meet little fairies."
"You are better than any fairies I can meet"

This is why we have kids.

The headline is courtesy my friend Anshu Sharma (@anshublog) who crisply explained in a short phrase what I spent minutes espousing. The venue was TiEcon where I was invited to do a fireside chat with Anshu about Flipkart, India, Internet, and the power of ecommerce.


The world is full of conflict zones. Young people picking up guns to fight for various causes (whether real or percieved). I wonder how different things would be if we could hand every one of them a smartphone with a connection to the Internet, and show them how they could make money of it. I wonder if the belief that they could all make a better life for themselves would be a start towards tempering the fires burning across the world.

By most metrics, India is a poor country still building its infrastructure up. But if you walk around in the country, all you see is young people studying, reading, buying, selling,... more »

By most metrics, India is a poor country still building its infrastructure up. But if you walk around in the country, all you see is young people studying, reading, buying, selling, figuring out all sorts of schemes to get ahead in life. India is in reality a very rich country. Because its youth have belief that they can get ahead in life, and build a better, more prosperous future. A key part of that belief stems from the access to a smartphone and to the Internet.

If everyone in the world had a shot at a better life for themselves, if all of them could be handed a cheap android device with a connection to the rest of the world, perhaps we would have way less wars. Perhaps the war mongers would be way less powerful.

Or as Anshu put it so eloquently on stage at TiEcon, it would be the Internet versus ISIS.

And we all know who would prevail.

Love this one, and try to live by it:
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

So I am back home in sunny California and here is the view from my study (never mind the crazy mountaineering caricature that Google’s Waterloo office mates made for me)

It is so beautiful. I spent the entire morning outside in the backyard. Its as if California is teasing me about my decision to leave!

This one is a short one and about nothing in particular at all.

Its three weeks into India/Flipkart, and I am heading back home to California for a few days to prepare for the final move. Though right now, I am a bit confused about where home is. Is this home now that I live here, or is home my beautiful place in California that I miss so much?

I guess home is where the heart is. In this case, my family is back in US and so that is home. When they move here, India will become home.

So far, I have had an amazing time here. This industry is hyper-competitive and I feel like I have been completely sucked into a completely different world. The smarts of the folks at Flipkart are on par with anything you can see anywhere else. And now, the ambitions are on par too. All in all, it has been an eye opening, intense experience. I have a suspicion that the intensity will continue.... more »

So far, I have had an amazing time here. This industry is hyper-competitive and I feel like I have been completely sucked into a completely different world. The smarts of the folks at Flipkart are on par with anything you can see anywhere else. And now, the ambitions are on par too. All in all, it has been an eye opening, intense experience. I have a suspicion that the intensity will continue.

I was telling someone the other day, that there could have been two different reactions after three weeks in India. One of intense dismay — what did I do? Why did I come? And another one, a half-smirky, half-relieved sense of validation — phew, thank God I showed up. This looks like it will work out.

I am happy to report that it is firmly the latter. I have always believed that India has a tendency to elicit extreme reactions. You either love it, or you hate it. Rarely do people show up here and are apathetic to country. I have a feeling that there will be ups and downs. But when I decide, at some point in the far far future to head back home, it will be the amazing ups that I will remember the most. In just a few days, I can see the beginnings of an amazing life experience here, amongst an incredibly interesting set of people, all trying to rebuild, reinvent the infrastructure of an entire company, brick by brick. What’s not to love?

I guess this post was not short after all. But then no post about India can be. Its tiring, exhausting roller coaster for sure, but I am learning a ton, and its just so much fun.

So finally, for those of you who are on the verge of making life changing decisions of any kind, changing jobs, countries, committing to new things, starting companies, whatever. If your heart is in it, just do it. Reinventing yourself at regular intervals especially when you do not quite need to do so, always works out.

Adios India. See you in a few days!

I sit in my window looking out at a patch of green that is the Intel campus amidst a landscape of concrete. This is my third week in Bangalore and depending on when I am working or not, I miss the Bay Area. The people are super nice here, and there is tons of interesting work to do. But it is a country in the middle of constructing itself and there is little organic space for introspection here. Most folks with means compensate for this by living in small bubbles - gated communities that make you feel like you stepped into a different country.

Lest you think this is about US versus India, developed versus developing, happened versus happening, and all the other memes we like to quickly lean upon, let me disavow those notions. It has merely to do with that home versus this home. About newness and the rough edges it brings with it. Over time, the edges smooth and the newness wears off, to be... more »

Lest you think this is about US versus India, developed versus developing, happened versus happening, and all the other memes we like to quickly lean upon, let me disavow those notions. It has merely to do with that home versus this home. About newness and the rough edges it brings with it. Over time, the edges smooth and the newness wears off, to be replaced by a warm comfort of being home again.

One thing that does hit you a lot while living in Bangalore (and perhaps many mega-cities) is the lack of space for thoughtfulness. I think its key for people to have the ability to walk outside and just look at trees, or sit on a bench and watch the world go by, to be able to listen to the birds in small parks. Perhaps I have not lived in a real city for a long time and the suburban lifestyle has spoilt me, but I want to be able to step outside of my bubbles — the five star hotels, the car and the office, and just sit outside and listen to the sounds. I suspect some of those places exist in the older part of the town on the other side of the city, but here in Outer Ring Road area, its all very glass and concrete with no space for green.

So I sit at my window in my hotel room listening to a piano piece called Goldberg Variations. It is a seminal keyboard music set published by Bach and though I suspect I know very little about music, it does give me a sense of peace every time I listen to it. Its my way of going home whenever I wish to, regardless of where I am. To be able to really listen to it, you need to find a quiet place somewhere where you can watch the world go by and just listen. For me, it is an exercise in thoughtfulness. And thoughtfulness has the potential to influence what we build, how we treat others, and how we live our lives.

I wish there was a place in every city, around every home regardless of how much you make and how much influence you have, to listen to Goldberg Variations.

Yesterday was interesting.

I had told someone I would meet them for a drink post work, and so we (Niket and I) headed out of work around 7pm. Got to the lobby and saw that it was raining cats and dogs outside. Typically tropical torrential rains. Called the driver, no signal. Waited for a few minutes and then decided to head to the main gate and see if he was parked there. The main gate was about a hundred meters away and in that time we were fully drenched. Got to the gate, looked for the driver, no dice. Now we were faced with an interesting choice. Should we stand here and keep getting soaked or walk to the hotel which was slightly less than a kilometer away? Men of action that we are, we decided on the latter option!

Now the fun began. The road to the hotel was completely blocked with cars end to end. Almost nothing was moving. The sidewalk disappeared in a block and so now we were... more »

Should we stand here and keep getting soaked or walk to the hotel which was slightly less than a kilometer away? Men of action that we are, we decided on the latter option!

Now the fun began. The road to the hotel was completely blocked with cars end to end. Almost nothing was moving. The sidewalk disappeared in a block and so now we were weaving through the cars. The road sort of disappeared in a bit too, water started seeping through our shoes. We were soaked by now. And my laptop bag was more like a water bottle. Jump, weave, side shuffle, wipe water off glasses, repeat. Swerve, avoid that car, hold on to the lamppost, jump, we shuffled along like ballet dancers on a hot tin roof. And then instinct took over.

I remembered growing up in Bombay when the monsoon would hit. It would be like a wall of water hit the city and the rain would keep going on for days. My mother would pack our school bag in a large plastic bag and we would forge bravely into what felt like an unending lake to walk to school. The first hour of school would involve drying various things — Boots, clothes, books, bag, you name it. There used to be a slightly musty air around things. Everything was slightly wet all the time. Lights would be on all day since the cloud cover would make it so dark. We would skip rocks in puddles on the way back home, play with earthworms, jump from rock to rock trying to cross an inundated road. Sometimes, the area around my house would be so waterlogged, we would wade through it with bags on our heads. I remember sitting at the window in the evenings, praying, hoping that the rain would abate so I could go play soccer in the water sloshed fields. More often than not, I would be denied.

I guess carrying a laptop bag on my head and weaving through traffic in a muddy Bangalore road is nothing. I have done this for years when I was growing up. Perhaps this is what they mean by going back to where you come from…

Week in. And it all feels different.
