Hello there, I am Umang and these are my thoughts on what changes in Andaman & Nicobar Islands with high-speed internet connectivity.

The high-speed internet link has been a long-standing demand of the islanders, and finally, it was great to see it actualized when the honorable PM inaugurated the project on 9th Aug 2020.

PS: The connectivity is still not fully live. There are segments of users who are still not receiving augmented speeds. Hopefully, this should get resolved in the coming days.


“If you'd asked me as a kid how rich people became poor, I'd have said by spending all their money.” But that’s not the case. They loose more money in bad investments than they would ever loose spending on self-indulgence.

It is the same with time. You are likely to lose more time “kind of working” than while having “fun”.

This one is going to change the way I think of spending time.

The End of Anxiety, a thread.

Life was not meant to be lived in a state of perpetual anxiety.

The triggers of anxiety are external, but the cause is internal.

Try to remove the triggers of anxiety, and you will be trying for the rest of your life.

Remove the cause of anxiety, and there will be no anxiety left to deal with.

The cause of anxiety is hope.

You suffer in the present because you hope for the future.

If you approach life as though you have something to gain from it, you will be prone to anxiety.

Life is an empty, meaningless, glorious game.

“Man suffers only because he takes seriously what the gods made for fun.” —Alan Watts

Anxiety itself is nothing to be anxious about.

The arising of anxiety only causes problems for one who seeks to escape it.

Anxiety comes to an end in the person who realizes he can hold on to nothing.

Everything that can be had can be lost.

Only one who is at peace with the transitory nature of things can truly live.

Another gem from Seth Godin:

I used to ask, “If you stole Steven Spielberg’s address book, would it help you get a movie made?”

The point was that even if you had the phone numbers and names, calling them up and saying you’d stolen them wasn’t worth very much. The data has no value without trust and connection.

Now, twenty years later, all the address books have been stolen. Everyone has all the data. Identifying the right people (or spamming everyone) is easy and cheap.

Which makes the point even more urgent than ever: Without trust and connection, access to data is worthless.


Announcing lay-offs is never easy. It is never something any CEO wants to do. But, when they really have to – this is the way to do it.
