Getting started

I have been wanting to blog for a while. Never got down to it. I didn't want to start a blog and then not sustain it.

Years ago I had tried to learn golf. A golfer friend advised me to buy rather than rent a golf set since that would ensure that I would play regularly. A set cost more money than I could afford at that time, so I asked my brother to get one for me from USA. I went to the driving range a couple of times to hit a few balls and then my interest in playing golf petered out. Perhaps if I had paid for the set I would have been more committed to the game. The clubs are lying unused in a cupboard at home.

Now I am often asked if I play golf. I wrinkle up my nose and say I don't have the time.

Will my fledgling blog share the same fate as my golf game? DKCS. I can only try.

I met Gautam Ghosh on a trip to Hyderabad a few months ago and told him about my interest in blogging. He encouraged me to get started. I promised I would. I didn't.

Till now that is.

So here goes I've managed to blog a couple of hundred words without saying anything.

Hopefully I will have something more to say sometime soon.

Hey Sanjeev, never had a chance to see you know you or hear you talking but yes got many inputs from a confidante. You are our Indian version of starting from a garage (your dad's garage with a rent of Rs. 800). Happy blogging!!

Thank you for leading the way....

Hi Sanjeev,
Its nice to see that you have started blogging. Very shortly, it will not be a matter of choice but a compulsion for an online company management to blog, where they could interact and exchange the ideas with customers, users. Its a very nice way to create a buzz...

Hello Sir....I cannot believe ..CEO of Naukri.com writing blogs !! and I am posting comments on it !!!...Your blog was reallly very interesting and I hope you will continue writing it.It gives us platform to interact with you. I would like to share with you that I am a jobseeker and I have registered myself in many Job Portals.But I found naukri.com the best. You are absolutely right in telling that both the job seeker and the employer knows which job portal is no.1 for them.

It's great to see CEO's blog. Having read so many, some times its difficult to tell whether its a PR activity or a sincere effort to connect in a more personal manner with the people who do and dont know about you. This is true for most blogs, and especially for blogs by CEO's.

Well sir, congratulations on the start of your blogging experience and hope to see many more.

Abhilash said...

By the way... are you planning to sell your golf set?

gourav sharma said...

Hi Sir,

Having read your first post when it's nearly 3 years old,I must may that,it was good that you didn't took blogging like you did with golf.
Otherwise we all would not have had this pleasure to read such learning and inspirational thoughts of yours.

Thanks & Best Regards
